I just wanted to make a new thread because, you guessed it, I'm avoiding work. YAY! So I thought it might be kinda fun to share different ways we take little mini-mid-day-vaca's from life. Obviously the forums and FB provide endless amounts of entertainment, but what else?

Any fun websites? Daydreaming (I'm a huge daydreamer....gets me into trouble probably)?

Post then get back to work! :dedhorse:

I can't it comes up with a message of chats and sexual content cannot be viewed at work. It makes me guilty for even attempting to see if the block is down(which sometimes it is, hehe).

I called in sick one afternoon to go fishing. Hey, what can I say. It was a beautiful spring day after a long, cold, dreary winter.

I called in once to go snowboarding then when I was sore the next day I played it off as body aches from the illness. And I've skipped school to go boarding too....best day ever. Sun, no crowds, 6 inches of fresh powder....it was amazing.

I have a HUGE paper due tomorrow, and I can't stop checking away messages, coming on here, checking all my e-mail accounts, facebook and myspace. It's a horrible habit.

I have been going to the doctor for my shoulder so I schedule it at 1 pm so with the hour drive, visit time, I just don't have time to get back to work.

Bad news no real shoulder problem so no more Doctor visits.:frustrated:

No wait that's good news!!!:drink:

I am avooiding work now doing this. The nice thing about having your own business is you can install all sort of time killing programs on your computer. :applaud: Thank God for computer illiterate mircomanaging uncles

Morgan--try procrastinating until about 8 PM, then consuming a few Monkey LaLas. That was my recipe for a getting past serious writers block and churning out a killer paper. Seems the Monkey La las help to free the mind so the BS (not-breaststroke) flows freely. Add a few resource cites & you're golden!

Good luck-
Dana

P.S. Work is what I do to pay for swimming (and shoes). If anyone tried to research the amount they pay me vs. the ACTUAL amount of time I spend doing actual work at work (instead of reading the news, my horoscope, forums, etc)... well, let's just hope that idea never occurs to TPTB.:lolup:

You mean this happens when you try to access any external site or only USMS.org? (of course, when the word "pole" appears so often, this could cause a filter to block access). :)

Where I work (a Travel Agency) I can't block anybody from surfing (I could; I'm the IT-man but I won't. They have to go out to access Airlines, Hotels, Cars, Vacation Packages, Country Info, etc...
