Made up word of the day

I haven't done this in awhile. Today's word is:

blogtied - the act of employer blocking access to websites such as blogspot, thinking that they can force their employees into actually doing work.

I am blogtied while I'm at my current customer's office. Strangely enough, I do seem to be getting more work done. I can't wait to get home.

I have to admit to a certain increased productivity myself ever since I got shutdown...but it still sucks!

I agree. I have become a mouse-potato in essence as of late and my company has basically blocked every interesting site out there including blogspot. The only solace I have is that I can still access the American Idol site at work.

What in the hell are our employers thinking, wanting us to actually work?

PRT (I like calling you that, remind's me of Michael Jackson's song PYT) - just wait. They'll block that too.
