Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawnn

Things I did today at work:

- Sorted out my paperclips according to size and arranged them in neat piles.


- Tapped my fingernails on the desk to imitate a horse clip-clopping along, then trotting and finally going at full gallop.

- Tried to compose a new song by patching together old ones at trotting tempo

- Ran said imaginary horse off the table to a sad death hundreds of millimetres below on the floor, so held imaginary funeral for it. (No neigh-sayers there.)

- Tried to look out of the window without moving my head, sending my eyeballs in that direction instead. Tried so hard that I popped a contact lens out.

- Spent two minutes popping contact lens back into eye and blinking madly to settle it in.

- Drew dust flowers on my monitor screen.

- Tried to twist a coil of my hair into a ringlet, using my pen.

- Spent five minutes disentangling the pen from my hair.

- Spent two minutes removing stray hairs from my pen. Gluestick didnt help re-attach it to my scalp.

- Drew a doll face on my thumb and played with it, using a piece of tissue as a head scarf or veil.

- Used the power of my boredom to fast-forward into time, but apparently only succeeded in stopping it.

- Yawned 457,983-1/2 times

oh good! proves i was not the only one dying of boredom yesterday (and today. and tomorrow...) instead of the contact lens thing, i wrote "bored" in 16 different point sizes, starting from 1... and sent it to people in the same office. sigh! we need time away from office, i suspect
