I'm such a bad little worker bee right now. I'm on the late shift - 12:00 to 8:00. I'm caught up almost completely on my work. All the supervisors are gone. So even though they have really tightened up on extra ciricular internet use at work - to the point we aren't even really supposed to check emails, I'm being so bad being here! But with 3 hours to go, and nothing to do, it's agony working when one is not in the mood to work. It's a funny thing; this was a short week for those of us in Canada, but it seems when it's a short week, it often seems longer than a normal week
It's not helping either that when I got to work, there was a message on my machine from Chapters. My Kobo is in!! I live less than five minutes away (a scary, yet wonderful thing) so I'll just pick it up on the way home from work. I'm too beat to try and figure it out tonight, plus I just started a good book. But at least it will no longer be lonely.
But in the meantime, I've given up pretty much all pretense of working. Now I'm usually a nose to the grindstone kind of worker. While people around me are chatting, or the most part I just concentrate on my work. I'm not saying I don't join in the chats at times - that would just be rude and no fun coming to work - but I'm less of a chatterer than many of my coworkers. So I'm justifying here why I'm doing a blog post at work as you can see, trying to kill time.
They had a potluck today for someone who is retiring. I ate a carrott. That's not easy for someon who just lost a tooth on their chewing side. I also ate a couple of Salt & Vinegar chips. That's also not good for someone who just lost a tooth!!

I have a Sony reader, and really don't know much about Kobo. Let me know what you think about it.

Hi Kristie,
I feel the same way about short weeks. Sometimes they feel longer then a regular work week!!

I just went tonight and bought a Sony EReader Touch Edition. I have been playing with it all night! Have fun tomorrow playing with and figuring out your KOBO reader.

Hi Kristie! Congrats on your Kobo... I can't wait to see what you think of it. LOL on killing time. Take care of that tooth... I myself need to go to a dentist soon for the same reason (trying not to think about it). :(

I hope you enjoy your Kobo, I've heard such great things about it. I've been thinking about getting one myself, it looks so cute~ I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it. :D

I so understand about the shorter week thing, I feel like I'm more aware of the shorter time thing so they go by slower. :P

So, so? Did you play with it during the week-end, Kristie?
