I thought that I would start this thread because well I want to talk but there is no one around to talk to so here I am :D

I am sitting here at work and have been for over an hour now and there is still only 3 of us that have arrived of course there is only expected to be about 5 of us here for the day. For some reason everyone took holidays today but somehow I must have missed the memo :lol:

I am the only one on my floor today which is great because I don't have to be bothered but it doesn't help with my motivation to work. Actually to come to think of it, I haven't touched my work yet...hmmmm maybe I should do something sitting on my desk....nah, maybe later :)

So just stopping by to say hi to anyone who happens to come across this thread and wants to join in or I can just continue to talk to myself...I am cool with that :2thumbs:

Hi!

I'm here.

Once I turned up at work on a day I had annual leave booked! I check my diary regularly now! I stayed an hour that day to write my appraisal form, then went home!

Hey Braveheart...glad that you could drop in :D I was really hoping not to have to talk to myself although if I had to...I would :)

That must have been horrible to show up when you didn't have to. I almost did that on a Saturday once when I thought it was Friday. Good thing I realized it before I got dressed.

I still haven't touched any work yet....surfing the internet seems to be a pressing priority for me right now :lol: There are so many interesting sites and things to do...hmmm maybe I am procrastinating on doing work..could be but then again its Friday and who really wants to work on a Friday? :)

Maybe do a piece of work, have an internet break, do a piece of work...

*I so shouldn't be saying that!*

That's a good idea....I do have a letter to draft to a doctor on a file but that is going to take a bit more mental focus than I have today. Maybe I can find something that doesn't include too much brain power. Wow....I just realized that I am feeling pretty anxious today. My leg won't stop shaking and I find my brain is moving pretty fast too...surprising for it still be so early in the morning. Definitely don't need anymore :coffee:

I am having this weird tingling feeling in both my hands and fingers today which I am finding is making it a little bit more difficult to type. It is very odd sensation...almost like they are asleep.

Oh well...the count down to leave work is on, only 6.5 hours to go :yahoo:

Go on UK time! :p It's 2.30 pm here!

Maybe the unexpected being on your own has raised your anxiety?
I find wiggling my hands, and rubbing my arms gently, [not together!] helps when my hands go numb like that.

Okay UK time it is....I love it :D

It wasn't really unexpected that I was going to be on my own today as I knew that a lot of people were taking the day off. I think that my anxiety is slightly increased because I haven't yet taken my morning med and I had one extra coffee this morning which could have done it. I am sure once I take my med that it will be all good :)

I never thought of rubbing my arms as I kept rubbing my hands together and it hasn't helped. I will definitely try that.

So what you are your plans for the rest of the day Braveheart? Anything exciting?

I have had this urge to write poetry lately and keep having these starting of poems in my head but never quite getting them on paper. Hmmm, maybe something I will do this weekend. Don't really have any plans and don't know what I am going to do yet...need to find stuff to do and that may be one of them.

Well I am now stopping by. :) Just so you don't have to talk to yourself. :dance:

Try googling "bored at work" and watch what comes up. :D I love Braveheart's sugestion - so it's now after 3 probably going on for. Hey in a half hour or so you get to go home.:rolling:

:angel:

Thanks for stopping by Ladylore and relieving me from having to talk to myself :D

I am going to try googling that and see what happens...it should be interesting. I am also doing some fix up work on my computer here so it is keeping me occupied as well. Of course I should probably be doing actual work and not tinkering around but oh well...better than nothing :lol:

Yes I am still liking that UK time thanks to Braveheart :) I would be almost on my way home now :yahoo:

Halo,

I've always found that piling huge stacks of anything on your desk will make it appear you are much busier than you actually are, and nobody questions you. And I always tell myself - "It's Friday. By virtue of the fact that I'm AT work, I'm already more productive than anybody who isn't"...so no guilt required - HAHAHA.

I myself am procrastinating...but I really need to get going. Any word on your prospective puppy yet?

I love how your brain operates BG....its true, just the fact that I actually made it to work on a Friday especially with leaving yesterday sick was a freakin miracle :)

I do have lots of papers and files open all over my desk so I look so busy working away and of course the sound of me typing is great too...he, he :bad:

The puppy is going to have to wait (again) as I will be returning to my part-time job for the summer and until I am done with that I can't get one.....I therefore will have to live vicariously through you :D

Hey TTE....glad you could join in as well. I am finished tinkering with what I was doing and now am just patiently waiting for lunch time so I can get away from my desk.

So how are my nieces and nephews doing these days??

Your office should be busy by now, with the dog and the 6 budgies. No need to talk with yourself when you have so many animals around. :D

Oh poor things and you...I didn't even know you guys had an earthquake :eek: Guess I should be listening to the news or reading the paper more.

I hope that the one gets over his jitters soon, I can imagine that it must have been frightening.

Glad to hear that you are all okay though.

Well if I really had all the animals around I would be much happier than sitting here all alone....too bad they don't allow you to take animals to my work...that would be cool :cool2:
