Uh yea…. That’s about all that I do. 🙂

Same here, not avoiding… there’s just never much to do here for the last 2 weeks of year!

I look at shoes.  A lot.  I used to read books online but my current company blocks those sites.  Boo!

I totally come here during downtime, almost no where else! Although downtime has been really scarce lately b/c it’s my busiest time of year..

Sometimes I also research vacations I’m thinking about taking which is also good for boredom.

I play Angry Birds on my cell, read the Bee a ton and I really like to browse Forever 21’s site. I don’t frequently buy stuff, but I enjoy ‘shopping’ :o).

I also like to look for stuff for the wedding on various sites, and I always have to check wedinator.com :).

Bee! Other than that I look for online games. Especially the escape the room kind.

I think I need a new job.

I literally run my ass off from the beginning of my shift to the end.  I can’t even go to the bathroom without somebody following me to ask questions.

@SapphireSun: OMG I HATE it when people follow me into the bathroom talking about work!! Or they see that I’m in there and just start blabbing about some account I’m working on, as if I care while I”m PEEING!!! It’s the worst when I used to have female bosses and they would do it.. SO AWKWARD!!
