Merry Christmas Co-Workers...Oh, Wait I'm the Only One Here

So since I just began working at my new job about four weeks ago, I obviously have not accrued any time off, hence I am still working my 8-5. 

And it's like a ghostland. I don't remember it being like this last year, but then again I had to travel to get home for Christmas, so I'm assuming I took some time off. Anyway, point being is that I am alone in the office. The phones haven't been ringing, almost everyone has taken the whole week off to celebrate (and eat cookies and open presents), and I have managed to get a lot of work done. 

Since a lot of my work is getting done and I have less projects to work on, I have taken to spreading my own holiday cheer through diversions on the Internet. So if you, like myself, are holed up in a cubicle wishing that you were drinking eggnog and watching It's a Wonderful Life on repeat instead, read on because the Christmas cheer is on it's way. 

Bejeweled - The Holiday Edition 
This took up a good chunk of my afternoon today. I am a big fan of MSN and Yahoo games online, though I don't usually play them at work but rather on a lazy Sunday morning. But today, I stumbled upon this little gem that is the holiday edition of Bejeweled. Just switch out the jewels for snowmen, Christmas trees, and candy canes! 

We Love Holiday Sweaters
What is Christmas without an ugly sweater party? I fell in love with this website because it is all about being tacky and making your own Mr. Rogers-esque, scratchy woolen sweater. And even if you're not feeling creative, just window-shopping and seeing other people's creations is well worth perusing this site



Elf Yourself
Buddy the Elf here, what's your favorite color? I love the movie Elf. I love Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf. So why not insert my head onto an elves' body? Oh, go on, just go elf yourself



Drunk Santa Delivery
I'm not sure where my dad dredged this link up from. My guess is a colleague of a colleague of a colleague sent it to him. But please, just click this link. It's hilarious in a seriously cheesy way. It's a game where you have deliver presents for Santa before he gets too drunk to see the numbers on the elevator. Oh, and if you submit your highest score, you are entered to win a Wii! 

So happy clicking and a very merry Christmas from Working Girl!

That game was fun. It was easy.. until I got to about 2,000 points.

Then it was hard.

Stupid security guard. I always hated him.

Elf yourself (and elfing others) doubles as a workout.

If you MUST work, this is the best scenario...when the office is a ghost town...it's like getting paid to do nothing! Enjoy!

Last Christmas I was working at a huge PR firm, and the only people there around the holidays were interns (like me) and the tech support guy. He ended up setting up Guitar Hero in the conference room for us.

I hear ya. It's like that in my office. Everyone is off but me. :( I'll even be here on Friday.

Erin said...

I'm all alone at work this week, as well. It's for the best, though, as I would not otherwise be able to blast 'Womanizer' while I kick major ass at Text Twist.

Happy holidays!

Some of the most popular themes for kid's horse games include a race track, a fashion salon, horse show jumping competition, or simply the outdoors. It seems that riding a horse online has become quite common nowadays, with game titles like Lisa and Bandit.
