Do you have a boring job? Do your co-workers inspire you to prank them just because you can?
Find an old computer keyboard. There is likely one in storage somewhere in your office because people are packrats. Substitute that keyboard for the one your vacationing co-worker left behind when they went to Bali or Corfu on vacation. Seed it with clover or some other fast growing plant. Wheat grass also works. Water as needed.
It's better if you can find it at work, but a small investment in aluminum foil can yield big benefits. Simply stay after work and allow your creative juices flow.

This blog has many elements and depending on your interests, may pique your imagination...or not. I urge you to be unreasonable. Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.

In this blog and in my life, I try to maintain this perspective.
Either you believe in our essential spark of shared divinity, or you succumb to our human insecurity. Either way your conscience lets you slice it, the main thing is to earnestly do what is right at the time.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
