    What do you lot do when your stuck in work with nothing to do?

    Had a text from the boss saying he won’t be in today, so I’m in the office on my own with nothing to do.

    No projects, tech refreshes, moves, builds, updates, upgrades, data destruction or hardware destruction going on.
    Been in work for about 90 minutes so far and I coated a golf ball in blue tack, watched 3 episodes of invader zim, eaten a bag of grapes by throwing each on in the air and catching it in my mouth, see how many press ups I can do in 2 minutes (I’d fail the fitness test), attempted doing a push up while standing on my head and spun round on my chair to fast and fell off.

    I have just unlocked 2 user accounts. Back to my grapes.

    You could go round to Mutley Plain and have a look at a job for me if you want?

    HA, you actually made me proper laugh with what you have done so far!!!

    If it was me, i'd be buying stuff on the internet for my bike or my car, so it's a good job i'm usually busy at work.

    If you want to see what I do when bored at work, look at the following photo, ignoring the bottles of wine, and looking at the laptop screen...

    Not a bad idea.
    we got some really good GPUs from the graphics department and some quad core PCs some where.
    But tomorrow, i'm off to play with the best simulator/game I can think of.
    SA80s and GPMGs :D
