How about, "my office, running my bookstore pretending to be creative with some marketing drivel that I don't want to do while all the employees are on the floor bored to tears because nobody has come into the store in the last hour?"

Seriously, this is truly boring. Part of the reason I started learning perl was because our "computer guy" told me that he couldn't put our database on the web without HUGH amounts of money for software, hardware, and some gigantic changes to our database. (For those of you wondering, his estimate was five figures). After a few days of pondering, I found perlmonks which made things very clear. All it took was a small change to the database to export the data once in a while, a spare pentium computer we had sitting around, linux, a lot of answers from you guys, and about two months of me hacking at it in between the firings. All because I was surfing perlmonks when I should have been accounting. I think it's a fair trade, really.
