The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office. - Robert Frost

Well, if you do have a day job, I hope yours is a lot more interesting than mine.
But if, by chance, it isn't I hope these tips on making it better will come in handy, (or at least give you a good laugh) enjoy!! : )
How To Rock A Day Job
1. Flaunt your popularity. But I'm not popular, so how? Easy! Call your office phone from your cell and pretend to have a personal conversation with a close friend. You'll want to talk loud enough for everyone in the office and the parking lot to hear. Repeat, 15-20 times daily. Your co-workers will love this!
2. Go the extra mile to fit in. When it comes to fitting in, it's the little things that count. I've noticed that some people lick their fingers when handing me a document/piece of paper. I'm a germaphobe, but I want to fit in so I go the extra mile...I lick not just the tip of my finger, but my entire hand, the piece of paper that I'm giving them, any nearby desks, and anything or anyone in the vicinity- then I give my colleague the piece of paper. I'd like to think that my efforts are appreciated.
4. Get Up And Exercise! Staying in your chair all day can leave you with a horrible malady called Desk-Butt. Not cool : ( Avoid contracting Desk-Butt by staying in the Break Room for 7-8 hours a day and doing either Pilates or Zumba. How do I do this when I'm supposed to be at my desk? Easy! Bring a mop from home, tape a picture of your face to the mop and wallah, you've created a clone to become your office drone.
5. Forge bonds. Compassionate and friendly people are well-liked. Show your compassion by talking to those who are often ignored, for example, your stapler. Talk to your stapler, listen to it's hopes and dreams, cry with it, laugh with it, take it out to lunch, and make sure your colleagues see you doing this.
6. Show emotion. Spock is great for Star Trek, but not for real life. Don't be a Spock at work. Show you're human by spending the entire day refusing to answer the phone because you're, "watching Les Mis for God's sake!!!", watch Les Mis (or an equally sad movie) and be sure to sob dramatically every time someone dies/cries/sings/passes out/breathes/overacts. When you dig your emotions, people will dig you.
So there you have it, that's how I make my day job more interesting and hopefully it'll help make yours a little bit better too!
