The problem with a desk job, is that you just sit there...which is fine - I might not be using my body, but I need my hands for typing, so that counts...it's not as satisfying as woodworking or deck-repair, but my hands are still needed. I'm not using my mind so much, since the job is really just a series of tasks that don't require me to think beyond "Ok, so now I'll look up 1963 and see if we have full primary documents..." which isn't very interesting when it comes right down to it.
So, I've been listening to music/audiobooks/podfics while I work, because then my ears are busy and my mind can both think of the primary records for 1963 and think "I bet the butler did it!" or "I love this song."
Problem is that I'm running out of resources. Music doesn't always cut it....I'm having trouble finding free/interesting audiobooks...and I've pretty much mined the Supernatural gen podfic community (a large problem being that I've already READ most of the fics there and don't really need to listen to them again.)
So, if anyone has any suggestions for things that I might find interesting to do while I work, let me know.
