Amuse Me

Peace & Solitude…

I’m still a bit worn out from going through what had to have been one of the quietest temp assignments ever today. (Temp Assignment ver. 1.2, if you’re keeping track.) There was a point in time where I literally had nothing to do other than stare at the walls for about an hour. Nothing. Finally I pulled out the book that I had in my purse and started to read. I couldn’t take it any longer – you may be surprised to learn that you can only stare at the walls for so long! Oh well, it’s money. I can’t really complain that much.

Today’s driving tip of the day? If it’s hazy, raining, and the roads are wet – do not be a total IDIOT and cut off an 18-wheeler. The guy has left that gap of room there for a reason and it’s so he doesn’t rear-end the other car. You hop in the middle … well, now you’re just asking for it. Don’t do it.

Today’s office tip of the day? Ladies, if your perfume is so strong you can smell it from a mile away – on yourself – then you are wearing too much. For those of us that are sensitive to perfume I have to speak up – PLEASE STOP!

I’ll second the advice about cutting off semis. You should also leave a lot of space for the people in front of you. Its the little things that mess things up both in the virual programming world and out on the highways.

(I think I’m done now 😉

Your Visor might have also have been good for that situation, espescially since it comes with the added benefit of making you look like you might be doing something. For games check out Space Trader, Bejeweled, Text Twist, Bubblet, 3D Hockey, Pacman, Seawar, Simcity . . .

re: perfume – You never know, they may not normally be the perfume wearing type, but thought they’d put a DAB on and (because the perfume bottle hardly ever gets used) the sprayer gets stuck and then suddenly comes loose and SOAKS you with perfume… uhm… not that I’d know anything about that kind of situation… 😉

… and I thought the tail-gating problem was just a new england thing! It’s awful, it’s horrid. Why are people in such a hurry that they risk their lives and all the people around them? Arg!

I had two different roomates in college who were much too generous with their cologne. It would literally leave me gasping for air, opening windows, blowing fans so I could breathe again.

And as for the wall-staring … yes, I know that pain all too well. That’s why I’m so happy that I can read books at work when there’s no customers. (I’ve read between 50-75 pages in a day while at work. 😉

Oh Jennifer, this woman looked like the perfume wearing type. I just can’t describe it – somewhere between the big hair and the thick make-up, I’m pretty sure she normally wore perfume. Strong, smelly perfume – it reminded me of “Poison” or something equally harsh on my sinuses!

Now I have to check out – it sounds hysterical!

Oh I feel your pain. There is nothing I hate more than being bored at work. This summer, my 8-5 was full of “do nothing” time. Which is pretty much how I got into blogging and reading blogs :)When I couldn’t play on the computer, I would sketch designs for my site (or others), play games on my Visor, and stare at my desk in Office Space style 🙂

ROFL! Mike and I were *just* talking about “Office Space” a few minutes ago! I was doing my receptionist impression … “One moment please… One moment please… One moment please…”

I need to update my Visor on a daily basis and start downloading blogs to it again – then I would at least have something to do!
