How to kill time in a cubicle

26 Apr

I always wanted to have some free time at work. But now that they gave away my accounts, I have all the time in the world. So here is a little glimpse into my world and how I killed eight hours yesterday.

*Read about funny grammatical errors

*Then read that Jon Bon Jovi is opening up a community restaurant with “low-cost or no-cost meals to diners in exchange for volunteer work at the restaurant”?? Very cool I would definitely go there! But then I read about a restaurant in which Danielle Staub, Jake Pavelka, Heidi Montag and others are working at.  Yeah, no thank you.

*Walked around carrying files to trick other into thinking I was busy

*While walking around, got mad compliments on my new headband that I scored for $1.50 at CVS this weekend.

*Painted my nails

*Wondered if I went around to people who are making phone calls and give them manicures if I could make a profit?

*Then wondered, when did I become so pink obsessed?

Ok not exactly pink but in the same family

*And how I felt so old because I am having major arch problems in my feet and had to make a podiatrist appointment before my insurance ends on Saturday.

*Started to make a list of boys I kissed in college but get stumped after the first month of college

*Wondered if I can find Today’s Special on DVD

Does anyone else remember this show?

*Read magazines

* Thought about  Tyler Florence and how he  bears a striking resemblance to  Ewan McGregor, only more voluptuous (nothing wrong with that Tyler!!)

*Cleaned out my wallet and checked balance on various gift cards hanging out in my wallet

*Cleaned out my purse and found random coupons that are still valid

*Wondered how a piece of cheese can taste so damn good

*Caught up on blogs

*Invaded my co-workers cubes to chit chat

*Soon realized that they still had work to do and didn’t have time to talk to me

*Took a lunch break

I haven’t been able to take a lunch break in awhile so I am enjoying this during my last week. I had a BOGO coupon for Rock Bottom that I wanted to use since I don’t know when I will be in the Uptown area of Charlotte after Friday. I grabbed one of my co-workers who I haven’t seen in awhile  and we sat outside and  talked about my plans and future adventures. I kind of blindsided her with the news of my last day but I didn’t want to tell her via im or email and wanted to see her before my last day.

Servers kept walking by and I would just stare at them as they passed by with plates of French fries. My friend would ask me if the guy was hot and I said “I have no clue, I’m just staring at the french fries” I gave up french fries for Lent and have been longing for them so all I wanted was to see some french fries in front of me. What seemed like forever, we finally got out food. I got the California Chicken Sandwich and half a plate of fries—mission accomplished!

It was great to catch up with her and she even picked up lunch since as she said “I probably won’t ever see you again” which ended up bringing me down since that’s probably a true statement. I told her I would give her my blog info though so she can keep track of my adventures!

*Visited my hippies and got produce for the week

All this for only $5.30! Which after work, I turned into a gorgeous Greek Salad topped with cooked tofu, onions and mushrooms with Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

*Went to Chick-Fil-A to redeem my coupon from the Chick-Fil-A calendar for the month of April

*Showed a little skin to score some fat free honey mustard and buffalo sauce

*Watched and listened to a serene waterfall in the heart of Uptown Charlotte while trying to find my chi

Then scooted out at 430pm to I could get home, a girl can only fit so much into a day!

How do you kill time on a slow day at work?
