8:20AM: Wake up.
8:35AM: Search for a cab which will accept Nets payment(the alternative being accepting 4 dollars 60 cents in 20 cent coins)
8:45AM: Find the cab.
9:10AM: Enter office in a rush, pretending to have climbed up all 34 floors in a bid to reach on time.
9:12AM: Realise that no one actually cares.
9:16AM: Turn on office computer. Open mail box.
9:17AM: Receive mail from HR department extolling the virtues of a Pear, the choice fruit of the week.
9:19AM: Search for last week's Fruit of the day mail and perform Change Management analysis. Figure out how a Pear is more efficient than a Lychee.
9:22AM: Keep hitting refresh button on mail box in hope of receiving a new mail.
9:35AM: Give up.
9:45AM: Walk over to pantry, make self a nice cup of Lipton Yellow label tea, with 2 tea-spoons of sugar and some amount of 60%fat free milk, along with hot water.
9:55AM: Walk back over to desk.
10AM: Drink tea. Appreciate how everyone seems to be so eager to work on this fine morning.
10:20AM: Message every person in a 600m radius asking if they are free for lunch. Every person with a double digit IQ. Which usually left out most of my comrades from NUS.
10:45AM: Keep spamming till one of them replies.
10:50AM: Start thinking about a second cup of tea. Decide on Milo instead.
11:00AM: Walk over to pantry and make self a cup of hot Milo.
11:10AM: Drink Milo, once again appreciating the dedication and commitment flowing through the surroundings.
11:30AM: Wonder if Watch has stopped. Attempt to synchronise Watch with the clock on the computer.
11:40AM: Attempts fail, as Watch apparently has not stopped and needs no synchronization. Watch doesn't realise that that wasn't quite the point.
12:00PM: Be the first one out of the door, beat the crowd to the food court and lunch in peace.
1:00PM: Having finished milking every minute of the hour, slowly make way back to desk.
1:05PM: Realise that another mail has been received. Again from the HR department, but this time explaining the benefits of the Employee Shareholder Program. A big N.A.
1:15PM: Analyse mailbox and realise that 60% of the mails received are from HR. The rest being from the IT Support team informing everyone which system wasn't functioning that day.
1:30PM: Congratulate self on getting through half the work-day. Decide to drink a celebratory cup of Cappuccino.
1:45PM: Go through the rituals. Enjoy the taste of instant coffee while a few billion dollars changes hands in the background.
2:00PM: Start pondering about meaning of life.
5:00PM: Complete pondering. The meaning, found, seems to be 42. Or 6x9, for the daft.
5:30PM: Last half hour.
5:45PM: Observe with some curiosity as a couple Corporate Services amble over to a nearby desk. Congratulate self on identifying the breed so accurately. Steve Irwin would be proud.
5:46PM: Curiosity fast vanishing, watch with no little trepidation as the topic at aforementioned desk turns towards "some Sheep Song".
5:47PM: Wonder, "Baa baa black sheep"?
5:48PM: Shut ears tight and begin praying in a vain attempt to save self as notes of "This is the song that never ends. Why dont you wait for it to begin.." or some such thing is heard.
5:52PM: Thank lucky stars as Janitor shoos away the flock. Admire his quick thinking and intelligence. Sing his praises for a while.
5:58PM: Log out of computer. Get ready to make a dash for it.
6:00PM: To quote Mel Gibson, FREEEEDOOOOOOOM
