  1. Cubicle space heater.
  2. Fill with sand for large zen garden.
  3. Add realistic wind noise to flight simulator game.
  4. Glue front panels on fridge to hide beer in server room rack.
  5. Boat anchor for CEO’s new yacht.
  6. Add some tubing, Mentos and Diet Coke to win contract for new fountain sculpture outside courthouse.
  7. Landscaping for new miniature golf course in old server room.
  8. Build vacation shack and show up that beer can house guy.
  9. Pizza warmer.
  10. Advanced new “laptop” for that guy in sales who’s always making fun of your conference t-shirts.
