Hour 1: Natalie left no work list.... So, I get to fold paper and stuff envelops for 8 hours....
9:11 I hate the Song Miss Independent. Pretty obnoxious. What happened to her? I ate her.
9:16: Reading about shuttle launch problems. Apparently a bolt breaks off after jettison. When broken, the bolts weight 40lbs per half. That's a big freakin' bolt. It almost always breaks, and is next to important equipment...
9:26. Asked Chris if she knew what I was doing. The letters I'm folding are in chunks of alphabetization (is that a word?). None of which, of course, correspond to the first name I see in the box on this desk. I guess I just keep folding unwittingly, hoping I'm not making Natalie's job harder.
9:29. John said high to me.
9:32. Folding hurts my index finger. Can I get hazard pay?
9:44. Audra came in. She also has no idea what's going on with the letters and stuffing... Great, Natalie has no system. Audra and I get to hunt and peck for the correct letters to stuff.
9:46. They're not alphabatized, but ordered by Zipcode... sort of....
9:47. Wonder if they have a key stroke logger.
9:53. Went to Slashdot.org. AIM and ICQ are cross communicating now. Maybe now I can talk to Schwa
10:00. I wonder if I could play games and not be noticed?
10:01. I'm thirsty. I want to go swimming... or bowling. Maybe I can nap under the desk....
10:02. I'm doing this too quickly. Too quickly and I'll have nothing to do by like 11:00.
10:06. Hard to be funny, requires much typing. Audra too close. No funny time.
10:09. John is strangely condescending to Audra. I wonder if he likes her. He also just stole her. Damn, I was actually getting a good convo going.
10:11. I want to play an 1/2Ogre Rogue. Jonathan, Lord of Winkleman. Maybe a thief. Something with a high bluff.
10:23. Wet. Seal. Wet. Seal. Knife goes in. Guts come out. Knife goes in. Guts come out. Wet. Seal. Wet. Seal.
10:27. Sugar Ray is the King of Sell-Outs. They used to be death metal. Now.. Ultra-lite pop.
10:30. I'm a trained monkey. Look'it me juggle!
10:35. Why do I answer the phone? Audra is right next to one, and it's always for her...
10:42. My body keeps going into ultra-work mode. I get this groove and work quickly. Chris told me to work slowly, otherwise I'll run out. Gawd, I have to force myself to work slower? What's up with that?
10:48. John the Joyless, Barbarian of the Palace Winkleman.
10:49. Jonathan-Eating-Students, Auhroun Get of Fenris.
10:51. Barb is totally a Bard. Why does she sing in the morning?
10:53. Jonathan the Lawless, keeper of Secrets. Thief. Lawfun Evil.
10:55. Audra: "Do you need anything from me?" Me: "No. I'll do this(sealing, wet. seal...) and get to that(stuffing). I can get it done in an hour if you want." Audra: "No... spread it out." Me: (internal sigh) "Ok. I'll finish after lunch then get more from you." Audra: "Nah, read more news."
Why is my work ethic better than the staff?
11:02. Uncle Kracker Song. Me to Chris: It sticks in my head like Tapioca to the Ceiling." The fuck?
11:08. JohnJacobJingle, Bard of Winkleheim.
11:09. I love No Doubt.
11:16. Www.Philips.com introduces a mirror with plasma tv. I think Orwell is shaking somewhere in the afterlife.
11:17. My eyes hurt.
11:22. Must work sloooooooower......
11:23. Sir Jonathan the Dauntless, Slayer of the Dread Winkle-Beast. Can Paladins be Lawfun Evil?
11:26. Almost got caught. Mm.. Ctrl-Tab. John's Elvish name: Findecáno Carnesîr
11:28. Found www.barrowdowns.com
