Postby icapants » Tue May 23, 2006 9:20 am

It's one of those jobs where you spend a lot of time waiting around for people to call though.
So, I'm getting bored very easily. And, since it's my second day, I haven't quite worked up to the whole "hey, can i like, listen to music or something?"
Cause it's quite as all hell.

So, cattywampians, entertain me.
What's new in your worlds? Got any fun (work safe) links?

You could read my silly little comics: http://thegreatlifecomic.blogspot.com/

And not judge them...

I once spent all day at work learning world geography:

It's like 4th grade all over again!

Oooooooor... You can make all your friends into Superheroes complete with rock'n'roll mullet and animal sidekick:

Nope, but only because I quit and moved to Japan, to another boring job.

Only, in Japan, you don't get a cubicle; all the desks are right next to eachother, so no websurfing. :(

The lizardpoint geoquizes! (quizzes? I do not know how to spell it.)

We used those as real classroom quiz(z?)es in a geography class I took a few years back in community college. I could spend a few hours there right now if I'm not careful.

I actually don't have a cubicle either, but my boss spends time on livejournal and everyones always making comments about how they just saw this and that on myspace.

So, really, it's not that big of a deal.

Then I'd say go with the superheroes. And challenge everyone to find Mogadishu or Namibia on the map.
