My brother's long standing arguments and the Olympic Procrastination Event I seem to be preparing for (prelims? what prelims? I should re-decorate this wall), I finally caved and gave in to Stumbleupon.

A gajibillion hours later, I found this game to play during boring meetings. It made me flashback to my wretched days in cubicle work. In case there are some cubicle-bound individuals out there reading this, I thought I would pass on the awesome:

1. Before (or during) the next meeting, seminar, or conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square. I find that 5" x 5" is a good size. Divide the card into columns-five across and five down. That will give you 25 one-inch blocks.

2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
Synergy, strategic fit, core competencies, best practice, bottom line, revisit, expeditious, to tell you the truth (or "the truth is), 24/7, out of the loop, benchmark, value-added, proactive, win-win, think outside the box, fast track, result-driven, knowledge base, at the end of the day, touch base, mindset, client focus(ed), paradigm, game plan, leverage.

3. Now check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"

We now return to our regular programming: late night prelims panics with Bessie. Will she have another dream about snow-cones and a panel of people asking her to explain snow-cones' significance to her? Only time will tell...
