office dilemma

I have a dilemma.

Option A: Be distracted by talking coworkers and eavesdrop on office conversations.
Option B: Put my headphones in and listen to something.

I don't really want to listen to anything, because I get distracted sometimes by what I'm listening to. (Most of the time music is fine, but I don't always want to listen to music.) If I listen to the news or an audio book, I end up not being able to pay enough attention to really comprehend anything, even if the task I'm working on is fairly brainless. Maybe for the same reason, I have a hard time devoting enough attention when I am at work to reading something that demands lengthy periods of concentration.

I say eavesdrop and then post the interesting stuff here on your blog.

p.s. I think you win for longest comment ever on my blog. Which I find funny because your blog posts are usually very short. :)

Option 3) Bring delicious home-baked goods to work and tell them they can have some if they shut the heck up.

It's what all the cool kids are doing.
