Things to do while you're bored... at work

Slow. Slow. Slow.

That does not describe how things are at work. Work is almost non-existent. I come in, do the couple of things that I need to - prepare a couple of files of legal records, go through emails, pacify angry attorneys and inpatient paralegals... done.

I sit here, staring at the screen. Nothing to do at work or even to play with. So what is a working girl to do... according to the Internet, these are the top things.

1. Blink wildly and then close your eyes really tight for an interesting light show

(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out shapes and see if your subconscious is trying to send you a message

2. Make up you're on office aerobics equipment with rubber bands... (I did this! lol)

(Amusement Potential: 10-15 minutes) keeps you going until you're a little sweaty and can't stand your own stench and still waiting for the clock to turn 5.

3. Try to not think about penguins

(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)This is especially hard, because by trying too much, you remember what you were trying to avoid thinking of. If you try too little, you end up thinking about penguins anyway.

4. Scratch yourself

(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)Go ahead, scratch yourself now. Even if nothing itches, go ahead. Doesn't that feel pretty good?

5. Make a low buzzing noise

(Amusement Potential: 15-30 minutes)Hours of fun in libraries! Keeping a totally straight face and looking nonchalant, make a low pitch humming/buzzing noise and see who reacts.

In the middle of blinking, playing with rubber bands, penguins, scratching and buzzing - I am THANKFUL that my job is secure even though it so BORING right now.
