FACEBOOK, movies, or build a good relationship with the other teachers around you who speak English.  It's fun talking to them about everything - culture, movies, relationships, etc. etc. 

Lesson plan ahead like everyone said, listen to music, Facebook again, etc etc.  If it's a long day, it happens.  If it's a short day, it was a good day.    ;D

But in the meantime if you're deskwarming there's always stumbleupon.com. Great way to kill a few hours.

Maybe you could arrange your friends to be on Facebook at the same time and chat with them. It would be a good way to catch up, kill some time, and have fun.

I like the show Frasier. There are plenty of those episodes on You Tube. I would watch those.

I haven't done much desk warming, but was planning on using the time to either lesson plan or study Korean. I try not to go on facebook, not because I can't but because I'm trying to avoid being asked for my facebook address, since I don't usually give it out to co-workers.

You could use the time to plan for your holidays around the country since you've already lesson planned through the winter camps...there are a lot of weekends to look forward to  ;D

Just came across this website.  Review/learn new things about a variety of topics with the video lectures available here.

http://www.khanacademy.org/

Looks like a pretty amazing way to spend hours upon hours deskwarming or other downtime. 

And I love the idea of using your deskwarming time to plan activities for every single weekend in Korea.  Clever!

What can you get away with doing at work while "desk warming"?

What are you guys doing to keep yourself entertained during the desk warming hours? I am thinking of bringing a book, but don't want to push my luck. Thoughts?

A book's fine.

I watch sports, play cards online, plan vacations, call people on Skype and all sorts of other stuff.

I find that I'm not the only one not doing anything productive at my desk.  Today, I saw a faculty member in my office asleep on a roll of toilet paper- after your school sees that you aren't coming to work hungover everyday and that you are doing your job, you can probably get away with more than a book.  Have fun!

you can get away with pretty much anything (within reason of course) I am on facebook all day, ive skyped home, and even taken a nap and they dont even bat an eye lash. usually i just sit in my classroom and they dont even know im in there. So, i think bringing a book would be fine haha

What I do during my desk warming (which is every single day)....
1) Read a book
2) Lesson plan for my first grade class I have once a week
3) Work on my blog
4) Look at pictures of food from home that I miss
5) Read other people's blogs
6) Fall asleep
7) Make faces at my boyfriend who is at the desk across from me
8 ) Check my email about 50 times every hour
9) Look for new books to read
10) Look for things I wish I had money to buy
