As I not only gammoned, but BACKgammoned Mr. "Expert-Portuguese" ("EAT PIPS! Obviously decriminalizing illicit drugs hasn't helped YOU! BWAH-HAHAHA! YEAH! That's for making Brazillians talk weird!") I realized....

Backgammon is boring. But not as boring as typing minutes for a meeting I did not understand.

Tetris is pretty boring, too, but
less boring than reading a book with "analysis" in the title. My conclusion?

I need a new Web game. Or a fake cover with the word "analysis" in the fake title so I can read trashy novels at my desk without raising suspicion.

I've got the intense computer screen gaze DOWN, the one that could mean "Stuck on a crossword/sodoku" or could just as easily mean "Reconfiguring the database so operations run more smoothly." All I need now is a game worthy of executing it. Something that takes SOME brain power, but not so much that I'll yell "Can't you hold on ONE MINUTE?!?!? JEEZ!!!!" to my boss when she comes looking for me.

I've never gotten into online gaming. So I'm not going to be much of a help. Personally, I suggest loading Civ. IV on your computer...but then your productivity would drop to absolute zero. And you'd get fired. And wouldn't be able to afford to get me Dinkels on a regular basis (btw, dirty-minded readers, Dinkels is the best bakery in Chicago). So forget what I've said.

Today, I told Friar Sarcasmos that he was boring me because he'd been talking about work for over two minutes.
