I Am Useless

We received new computers here at the office. At first I was really pissed off because I found out (rather quickly) that they had taken off all the games. Bastards! Then, I made an astounding discovery: No Firewall.

It was like the gates of Heaven opened up while a choir of angels sang glorious hymns celebrating the internet. Praise be!

Since I received my new computer I can honestly say that my production has been if not halved then at least quartered. I have discovered that having access to ebay at work can be detrimental to the checkbook and that Poppit is addicting.

Also, as the best mom on the planet, I have been answering quiz questions on my daughter's Webkinz account to raise money. So she can spend it. On virtual stuffed animals and their accouterments.

There is a small part of me that actually wants the firewall to be put back in place. Evidently I'm completely irresponsible and can not be trusted with free access to all the joys of the web.

TMZ is crack. Hulu is calling me. Gotta run.

If cakes had firewalls I would be so much happier.

And not fat.

what??!!? you mean you are not sitting there reading and commenting on all your favorite blogs??!?!!

honestly, this is one of the main things i missed about having an office job once i started teaching... all the time i could goof off on the internet. most school admins frown upon watching tmz when you should be teaching Hamlet. go figure...

hahhahaha...
when my boss praises my work I always think, I could run this place if they took away my internet connection. If they think I am great now...ha. They haven't seen half (ok, 3/4) of me!

ahhhhh, Hulu.
I spend all of my time catching reruns of Arrested Development and the Office...
enjoy! and who cares about not working-they made you drive in with bad weather only to send you home (right? that was you right?) serves them right.

Fantastic! I hope you enjoy your new found freedom. Once the novelty wears off I'm sure you'll be much more responsible. Maybe!
