Bor-ring…

Today was deadly dull at work – even more deadly dull than normal – and I was surrounded by the walking dead. I call them that because I came very close to nudging some of them with a pencil to see if I needed to call an ambulance. But some of them are so dull that the thought of touching them could mean the dullness would rub off on me so instead I balanced the pencil on my nose until that got boring which generally is after about 2 minutes or when the phone insists on ringing. I followed that trick up by emailing contacts and acquaintances around Cairns to remind them that I am looking for another job and that “I’m dazzling, smart,charming and can balance a pencil or pen on my nose.” The response was ‘we know.’ Good. After that I tried to do some writing at work but the characters kept yawning in the middle of sex, his foot fell asleep, she snored and he rolled
over on his stomach and said “mugalumpwallah…hmmm…zzzz.” I just don’t see that selling. So then, I wrote a list on the pros and cons of me having an uncomplicated, one night stand of pure, dirty sex. The list became so long and complicated that I decided to go back to balancing the pencil on my nose.

I can honestly say the most productive thing I did today at work was to put this picture of a jellyfish on my desktop. Yeah…job well done.

Oh, boy. I hate those days...you just want to stretch out on the desk top and sleep.

Actually, the stretching out on the desktop and sleeping may not be such a bad idea.
