Hello all! Another Monday, another assignment free week. When they told me that I would work much less here in Germany than in the States, I didn't expect to have soooooo much free time on my hands. I feel like that cartoon, where the computer informs you that you have visited every site on the internet...

So, other than browsing through chat forums, what is you favorite way to entertain yourself at work? Just curious...

This site and F1 sites...pretty much entertains me all day

Sometimes I like to read Annual Reports of corportations (like Starbucks). Its actually good reading and often has interesting information - well, at least the "To our shareholders" section.

the reports are fee, full of nice pictures, and also "work related" in that it's an annual report and your co-workers won't look at you too funny...

and I believe that Victoria Secrets is a publicly traided company...

well, I didn't say that you should read the financials, the auditors notes, or the changes in accounting practices. I spoke about the pretty pictures and statements on strategy / results...

bash.org is pretty funny
Waiter Rant is v entertaining too, but he doesn't write every day - http://waiterrant.blogspot.com/
Also, the BBC news site - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news
or check out a thread with Website Recommendations on this site.

Non-internet related ways to entrtain myself are : virtually non-existent, since I'm not allowed to take breaks (apart from at lunch) or leave my phone. Gossiping with other colleagues is the only possibility.

I write catch-up emails to my friends spread out over the world whenever I have a few hours here and there... Perhaps not so entertaining, but outside of work I never seem to find any time for something like this...

The Unusual Excuses! (for forgetting your homework)

• A lady threw my bag in the river

• My tortoise ate it

• House was struck by lightning - computer exploded

• The hamster has made a nest out if it

• We were at a Falconry display, and a golden eagle called Herman swooped down a went off with my jeans jacket - which had my homework in

• I was in a car crash and got taken to hospital

• My pet snake was sleeping on it

your right...about 65 seconds...but it was a good 65 seconds
not me honest
