So with 8 days to go (not that bonnaroo is not always on my mind 365 days a year) I was compelled to start a thread for the first time b/c I am completely useless at work b/c I CANT STOP THINKING ABOUT ROO.
Was yelled at today during work (and I have a boring office job) and I decided to go for a run rather then continue to sit in the office and feel bad for myself. I returned sweaty as all hell and received some of the nastiest looks to date -- couldn't give two shits. The entire run I had a smile ear to ear b/c I imagine myself only a few days from now leaving all this crap completely behind me.
please feel free to share a stupid work/school related story and how you are on the edge of your seat like me---dying to just be on that damn farm.

I've been spending time on these boards while "trying" to make some last minute headway on my thesis before I go. I feel you pain. Life can return to normal a week from Tuesday; until then my mind is already on the Farm.
I have been lurking around these boards since 08 and as roo gets closer I have been doing nothing at all except reading the threads. I work at a golf course in CO and the course hasn't opened yet just the range so I've been sitting doing nothing but reading inforoo and counting down the days. 5 days til I'm on the road!
Same here!! I have probably been on here for 4 hours of the 7 hours that I have been at my desk! As the countdown continues- I spend more and more of my day lurking in inforoo, making lists, plotting my schedule.. AHHH CAN'T CONCENTRATE! BONNAROOOOO!!!!

I spend almost all work day on inforoo. (Or at least it's open in a tab on firefox)
Not that I haven't been spending a significant amount of time at work reading these boards.. well, ever since I found them! haha It's just much much worse here lately. But actually, I've been managing my time better and getting more work done the past few days! I guess to compensate for all my at-work Inforooing and knowing I have to get so much crap done before I leave next week! ;D
I love it though! Love reading these boards.. and getting on Facebook & seeing "All I can think about is Bonnaroo!" statuses on there too.. and then getting "One more week!" texts all day.. EXCITED!!
This thread is hilarious because it is SO SO true. I have been productive at work this week and not sure how since the board are up for a minimum of 6 hours during the day.
I have work tomorrow and Monday then am out. The funniest thing will be that I will be back on the boards along the way to see whats going on as I am approaching. I will probably have my ipad up while I am in line...
with being addicted to bonnaroo and having a call centre job its hard not to dream about roo or think of roo memories. dont think a day in the last year or more has gone by without me uttering the word "bonnaroo"
2 days of work left. theres no room left in my brain for thoughts that don't involve music, sun and roo!
I was starting to feel nuts! I am so happy to know I'm not alone! Thank you fellow Roo-ers!
I work from home and I'm on my computer all day every day anyway but not having anyone over my shoulder and constant access to the internet makes working that much harder. I haven't been truly productive since I found this board!
Yeah. I babysit and my phone ends up dying from the amount of internet use i have. I have to sometimes take my charger with me. Granted, smartphones only last 1 day anyway, but in the matter of 5 hours, I make mine die, lol...
i'm still in shock that im able to make it this year! lol... bonnaroooo!
'Roo fever got me thru a dentist appt yesterday! the whole time I was hearing the drill (which would normally drive me nine kinds of crazy) I kept thinking, "this time next week I'll be... <seeing/doing/etc - insert activity here>" and I totally had a huge Cheshire cat grin plastered on my face the whole time.
Roo is going to be an epic start to an awesome summer for me! Also on tap I have Chromeo (in ATL), 311/Offspring, Alice in Chains/Deftones, Lords of Acid, Mayhem Fest and I am sure several more given that these things keep popping up (Disco Biscuits and STS9 are coming!). I am really just a paperweight at work right now and I am sure next week will only be worse!

As it was said in here, I am glad I'm not alone in my borderline obsession...I've lost sleep over this, and I don't even care! I work as a device specialist at Verizon Wireless and I have had one hell of a time trying to concentrate. Any lull in foot traffic in the store, and I'm right on my computer, lurking the boards for new exciting stuff...it's so cool that everyone has come together virtually before we all come together on the farm! I have my Roo pile, my flag and flagpole, tent and coolers all ready to go . Now I just Have to make it through my next 4 days of work, and then I'll be off on what will be one of the coolest experiences of my life yayyyyyyy BONNNNAAAAARRROOOO!!

I pretty much read the boards all day long at work. I work a lot so I'm on the boards alot. I have no supervisors at either job, so I'm free to do what I want. I can do my job in my sleep, so I'm radiating patients while reading your guys' posts.

These boards have been a lifeline for me for a couple weeks. im having a rough time at life at the moment - so not only are these boards distracting me from work, but make me feel like i have a place to GO when i feel crappy! Unfortunately (or fortunately for the drive i guess) I live in Atlanta, so I still have monday, tuesday, wednesday to work. ugh. But then Passion Pit wednesday night before I leave for the Farm! So excited!
I have today (2 jobs) and tomorrow (2 jobs) before I leave!! I am not sure if working the next two days is a good distraction or torture- perhaps some sort of combination?!?! I am trying to get out of work tomorrow night so that I can leave earlier! As of now, I am leaving midnight tomorrow night. SOOOO CLOOOSSSEE
