This is a question How I Skive Off Work

Admit it. No one does any work these days. It's all looking at crappy websites with your thumb hanging over alt tab incase the boss walks over. Tell us your best methods of skiving, and any resultant incidents. (Maybe your slacking off has got someone sacked, or resulted in a large scale industrial accident.)

The Working Day of a Freelance Illustrator
8:30 - Alarm goes off. Press snooze to gain a few more minutes, as there's no point getting up yet, as housemates are using bathroom to prepare for their (proper) jobs.
8:35 - As above.
8:40 - As above, and repeat until approximately...
11:20 - Depending on time I climbed into bed/hangover, either a shower or read a bit in bed, then shower.
Midday - Late breakfast, fire up 'puter and check e-mails and various websites.
13:00 - Enough time has now passed since I first checked e-mails, so return to beginning of midday process. This continues at a quicker pace as I realise I have read the entire interweb at least twice already today.
14:30 - Boredom/hunger drive me from my room to the kitchen, where a lavish sandwich is prepared. This signals the start of my lunch 'hour'
16:30 - Lament the lack of new information on various websites. Lunch finishes. Feel guilty about low productivity, but this soon evaporates as Housemate #1 returns home from his job. X-box.
17:00 - Total up how much work I have to do tomorrow to catch up...vaguely panic. More X-box to ease the worries away.
17:30 - Decide to do a bit of work. But first must check e-mails for that important one that may be there.
17:45 - Housemate #2 has arrived home by now, signalling Beer o'clock.
18:00 - Working day ends.

All of this is accompanied by a soundtrack of various artists (the pain-staking selection process for which tracks to play can take up to 20 minutes) and frequent wank-breaks.
