My Daily Morning Shirk-Fest

Every morning, when I come into this office at the butt-crack of early, I jump right into my daily routine of shirking work duties and responsibilities. I don’t do this because I’m lazy, or because I am trying to stick it to the man…although those are completely satisfactory reasons to avoid working on spreadsheets, and sending emails. No, I do it because it is the only way for me to keep a little bit of my sanity, while doing this mindless, repetitive, boring, unsatisfying work that is called my “job”.

My morning routine consists of the following:

1. Log on to my computer, send an email to my boss, boot up all software and programs and spreadsheets needed to work
2. Open Internet Explorer
3. Check email
4. Read CNN
5. Check out my online chess games
6. Read CNN again
7. Watch videos
8. Take a water break
9. Check/update my blog
10. Read my friend’s blog’s
11. Chat with friends on Yahoo IM
12. Listen to music
13. Take a bathroom break
14. Repeat (in no particular order) steps 3-13 at least 2 more times
15. Yawn, stretch, and look around my cube
16. Start working

Normally, I try to use this time in the mornings, to remind myself that things are not always as bad as they seem; and even though I HATE HATE HATE working in this corporate life crap hole, I take time to enjoy my day, and have fun.

If you want a laugh, be sure to check out today’s awesome “keep me going through the day” site. The video that made me spit out my water was “Splinter Cell Co-Op Theatre”. It’s a video game, that they added voices and dialogue to…and it’s friggin hilarious.

That’s all that I’m posting today. My creative juices are not quite flowing, and so the best I could come up with, was this. Sorry. If you are even remotely curious about my weekend (since I usually do the “what I did over the weekend” post, I will simply say that I had a good time…I got to rest, party, light fireworks, party, eat, rest, and enjoy myself. I hope you were able to do the same.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I think it's about time for me to start doing some work...before I go to lunch...which is in about an hour.

I was about to say that I work less than you seeing as I'm in radio... but you win!

And you make money doing what you do... or what you don't do... lucky.
