My co-worker is snoring

Amazing. I thought she was just staring at her computer screen. But nope, she's dead asleep, snoring away. What should I do to wake her up? I thought about smacking her with wet noodles, but we don't have any.

Get on her PC and go to one of those "Stare at this picture for at least a minute and you'll see the ghost!" pages.

Turn volume up.

Laughs ensue.

This would be a great thing to do (be sure to crank up the volume, the minute or so wait ensures that you aren't right there when the computer page "screams" at them).

Send an email to the boss, if they are at their desk, from her PC. Have it say that they suck as a boss, and that they don't have the balls to come over here and do anything about it.

Actually, I did something close to that. I got on her email and sent this to all her contacts: "Hi. I'm (co-worker's name) and I love goats." But dammit, I like your idea better. Too late...

Right as I got back to my desk, she fell out of her chair. The thud was heard all over the office. Funny stuff!

I'm going to assume not, since I'm sure bananapants would have done suggestion 1 by now, the face-tool-rubbing suggestion.

Nope. She's not even "I'm so drunk I'd hit it" hittable. Sadly, I don't keep a camera at work, so I can't show you exactly what she looks like, but here's an idea:

I've fallen zoned out at work a few times...though I wasn't the only one. It happens....but it has never been that bad.

Sleeping at work. Surfing DVDTalk at work. Really, people, is there a difference?

I was pounding down a case of Schlitz one night, throwing firecrackers at neighborhood cats, when it came to me. I wish I had a great story to explain it, but I don't.
