what amuses us at work

I work for a sticker company, and part of my job is to deal with the licensors. (i.e. anything we produce with someone else's art (Disney, Marvel, Nickelodeon, etc), has to go through me for approvals with the studios). It's great - I see a lot of upcoming projects from the Studios, and get to see art from the new movies coming out. (Did you know Disney is making another Tron movie? So cool!)

Anyway, some of the stickers we produce are for direct mail and medical offices, and they come to me in these rolls - I send some off to licensors for approvals and save some samples. While I was away, a great deal of these rolls were produced, and so a ton got stacked up on my desk, waiting for me to finish with them.

What would you do with them? If you're anything like me and some of the people I work with, you start a sticker roll Jenga game. As a reference, we have 14 foot ceilings, and they are starting on a 3 foot high desktop. that's 9-11 feet of stickers in each tower!

These are hovering over me as I work. The Health and Safety Committee wasn't thrilled, but these towers are remarkably sturdy, so they let it go for now.
What do you do for amusement?

Sometimes I practice doing lay ups with an imaginary basketball net in my office. Memories of high school!

I touch yarn that i normally wouldn't buy and think about what I could make with it.

I have a one track mind.

How funny! Sounds like a great place to work!

I love that cute green bird picture in the background.

I don't just touch the yarn. I buy it, without knowing what I'm going to knit with it!! My stash would stack even higher than your stickers!!

That is a LOT of stickers. Sadly,at work, fun is at a minimum. Too public.
