Bored, Bored, totally fucking bored

I'm sure its been asked before, but whenever I get bored at work I find myself wasting company time on the internet....

About how much time would you say you spend (out of a 40 hour work week) on the internet doing non-work related tasks?

I'm going to estimate between 10 and 25 depending on if I get more nightshifts.

I got over internet use at work after they started asking questions about weird images and the like. I only use it to check email there now.

Most of my work time is spent watching TV and DVDs otherwise playstation or sleep.

Every now and then I watch the spiders playing inside the security camera box. I'm so bored I've considered naming them.
I get paid to be bored professionally.

I'm not at work, but I'm totally bored right now, trying to decide if I should do abs, work on my short story, or just continue to waste minutes in front of the screen,

I love fuzzy blankets.... wait is that the same thing as fleece? I love my fleece blankets, I sleep with like 4 thin ones.

My abs go through phases.... you can tell when I'm working them, because they are never bad, but you see the definition very quickly, usually after a couple of weeks, this summer, I want the girls to oggle them, so I have to work them constantly for 4 months.

well i am not so worried about definition in the ab area, being female... but i just need overall toning. i intend to go to the gym 5 days a week until may, at least. to be as skinny as possible by my birthday.

I noticed you were a gemini too.

Yeah, I understand where you are coming from. 5 days a week, that's ideal if you want to lose weight, 3 days a week if you just want to get fit. Just remember, running is the best cardio, but hard on the needs, swimming is a great total workout, and you should try to have a peanut butter sandwich before hitting the gym, it helps.

I've been drinking this special K protein water mix when i work out, it's really made a difference.

i've cut down to 1500 calories a day, drinking lots of water, etc.

i hate the treadmill, makes my ankles hurt. i've been doing 30 minutes, minimum, on the elliptical. have been watching my heartrate and keeping it around 165-170 for 25 minutes at a time.

Hardcore... well done, I personally don't like the elliptical, I was on it one day, and my knee hit the front of the machine, knee buckled, I fell off, wasn't a pleasant sight.

Close to never. Too much to do, that's not what I get paid for, and even if I wanted to we have a crappy connection there anyway.

Same here, and you know it's during the 5 minutes you steal to send a personal email that the manager will stop by.
