It's a Lonely Day at the Office Today

It's not very often that one gets to see the entire office empty. In fact, this is probably the first time in a long while where I'm the only one left in the office. Some colleagues are away on work trips to far away places like London covering upcoming events like HTC and Nokia World, while over in San Francisco, there's some live coverage on our Twitter feed for Intel's keynote at their IDF event. One more colleague's over at Hong Kong for another cool event that you'll find out quite soon.

So that leaves me here, with some company in the form of the good Mr Toffee over at GameAxis, though he will also be heading over to Tokyo for the Tokyo Game Show soon. So before the others actually return from their personal leave or work related trips, it behooves of me to think of one massive prank to pull. Technically blogging about what I'm about to do is quite a bad idea, as it does ruin the surprise quite a little, but heck if I don't.

I've thought about plastering their desks with newspapers, but it seems we've done that before and the effort is quite a killer for just one person. I've also thought of plastering their desks with leftover Comex brochures, but it seems our cleaning crew is quite efficient. I even considered swapping items on their desks around but Kenny's desk is a total pain to shift. So that leaves me with a grand total prank of doing absolutely nothing because I'm lazy (and really rather busy with other stuff).

So what's the point of this blog post then? Well, I'm open to ideas that require a minimum effort but maximum WTF value, so if you have any ideas, do leave them in the comments. Otherwise I shall have to be satisfied with just the peace and quiet of the office while rushing out yet more articles.

stuff blutack into the optical sensors of the mice.
stick clear tape on the phones mouth/ear piece.
switch pedestals/movable cabinets.


Minimum effort you say? Screenshot their desktops, choose not to display desktop icons and move away their start bar to another location. I read about that somewhere. Your friends will go clicking on everything to no avail.

But then again, considering where you work, this won't last long...if it ever does.


I did see a half decent wig at Selfridges.


No chocolates for you!
