Oh yeah, reading... I've read The Art of War and The Prince (both great reads) lately, in my office.

Also, I second people's ideas for lists. Since the middle of May I have made lists about:

-favorite movies
-favorite books
-favorite albums
-favorite beers
-favorite drinking games
-places to visit before I die
-ideal jobs
-ideal life situation 10 years from now
-reasons why I hate my job
-what I am going to do this weekend


There are a few more. But ya, I really don't do a whole lot at work. Then again, I am an intern, and I redefine the definition of office slave.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I probably won't help at all, mostly because I've never worked at a desk before, but for me just doing actual work makes the time go by much faster than trying to bs my way through the day. When it gets hot I take frequent breaks, but still just keep myself busy.

That is outstanding. Although, it really freaked me out when it went into full screen mode, I almost cried Virus. :-° But, yeah, fantastic! Thanks ;-D

I'm the same way. I had a couple maintenance jobs for a couple summers, and there was plenty of down time. By about 11-12 o'clock, I'd run out of things to do and just walk around the plant and find small, time consuming things to keep me occupied until the end of the work day.
I guess it's pretty hard to do something like that, working at a desk all day though.

I'm a big fan of the list idea as well. Ever since watching High Fidelity, I've had a weird obsession with lists.
How about coming up with 2009 fantasy baseball rankings? :*)

I like to make football playbooks. I'll draw out tons of formations with many plays for each, both for offense and defense. I have filled several huge notebooks.

I've done that before, I've also tried to design golf courses...
