I actually hung around The Engine for a bit...checked my Myspace about 50 times, and (AND) actually got quite a bit of work done.

In the words of the great Poison song: "You don't know what you got- til it's gone..."
Now the board is back and my productivity can go down to nil. Yay?

So where did you hang your hat on the web yesterday?

11-07-2006, 08:42 AM
I read all the webcomics I could get my hands on. I also read up on Joystiq and Kotaku every 5 minutes. I also did some work....due to me being at work.

11-07-2006, 08:43 AM
I actually got work done.

11-07-2006, 08:44 AM
I'm never here because I don't have something else I should be doing. I just shifted to work.

11-07-2006, 08:49 AM
Went to Taki's board.

11-07-2006, 08:49 AM
Went to Taki's board.

oh yeah...I went there a few times, myself. I think I even posted once yesterday.

11-07-2006, 08:51 AM
I wrung my hands and giggled maniacally. My plan worked perfectly.

went to McKeever's board..plus other numerous boards to talk USM.
Also, played Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I'm playing it through for the second time.
Oh yeah, and cleaned my house, and other such nonsense.

I curled up into a ball and cried. Then I ate a few gallons of ice cream and then cried some more.

I wrote a 12 page synthesis essay on the opposing sides regarding the issue of military recruiters on high school campuses. I did it in two hours. It was comprised of an excess of 80% bullshit. I got a "B" on it.

11-07-2006, 08:57 PM
In a supreme act of loserness and while also dating myself, "Don't Know What You Got 'Til it's Gone" is by Cinderella..not Poison.

Yes, I used to listen to shitty, shitty, shitty music.

Back on topic: I must really have let this places' hold on me slip because this so called "Blackout" seemed very short to me.

I just continued on my merry way posting on the other boards I'm a member of.

The lack of the Bendis Board didn't cut down on the time I spend on the Net each day, it just meant that the time I spend was allocated elsewhere on the Net.
