How to waste time at work

Step 1: Have absolutely nothing to do at work and be bored out of your mind.

Step 2: Remember that Sellia tagged you for a meme. Also recall that you have access to Photoshop on your work computer.

Step 3: Visit all the required sites and try very hard not to refresh the page to see if you can get a cooler name/quote/picture.

Step 4: Put together this “random album cover” in Photoshop. Spend an inordinate amount of time making it look pretty, all the while checking over your shoulder to make sure that no one realizes that you’re goofing off.

Step 5: Realize that no one does know that you’re goofing off because they don’t even know what it is you do. (Ah, the benefits of being a web designer/programmer.)

Step 6: Chuckle silently to yourself as you write a series of steps that are totally not necessary, but you do it anyways because you’re bored and everyone else thinks you’re working hard.

Step 7: Feel slightly guilty about doing nothing related to work. Decide to wrap up your post before your supervisor (who does know what you do) comes back from her meeting.

Step 8: Finish with tagging a couple saps–er, fellow bloggers to continue this very random meme.


And hencefore I shall tag: Ticalos, Mysthowl, Tzia, Vlcan, Zhire, Matticus, Green Hunter…ah, what the heck. If you’re reading this or are on my blogroll, consider yourself tagged. 😉


1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random… Read More” or click
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to “Random quotations” or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

    Heh, thanks for the tag! I’m tempted to give this one a try. But my photoshop skills are lacking :(.
