About the author : Like many other Borderline-Fantasticers, I am a Penn Stater. I graduated in 2004 with a degree in Management Science and Information Systems. Even after going through the program, I have no idea what that major is. I picked it by process of elimination, and I'm pretty sure it has no real world value in the workplace. I managed to parlay my "major" into my first job in Logistics, and 1 job later, I find myself living in York, PA and working in Lancaster. I got married in July 2006. The wedding was a blast, and 3 of the BF regulars were in the wedding (mike, matt, and ahad to be specific). I'll try to post enough stuff that mike doesn't kick me out. If this thing takes off someday, I don't want to be that guy that was kicked out of the Beatles before they were popular. Later!

4.Â Reading the News – CNN is always a nice diversion, and ifÂ you get caught,Â you can Â just say you’re keeping up with current events.
3.Â Staring straight ahead – If you work at it, you canÂ actually trainÂ yourself to shut off your brain and stare at a spreadsheet for long periods of time.Â Hours can disappear like seconds.
2.Â The Daily Email – chatting it up with friends makes the day more bearable.
1.Â Bathroom trips – Nothing is more satisfying than dropping a deuce on the company dime!
