Make yourself popular on social media
Want to spring clean your online profile? First check out how much Klout you have or if you make it onto Starcount’s popular people list (you won’t). Then dig deep with Mashable’s top ten social media tips. Don't forget about Google+, YouTube and newbie Pinterest.
Sell your skills
You must be good at something and once you've spent a few hours working out what that is – be it Pokemon cards or playing Star Wars soundtracks on clarinet – we guarantee someone will pay you £5 to do it. How do we know this? Because excellent skill-selling website fivesquids offers everything from customised ransom notes to bouncy castle hire for sums up to £50.
Befriend a celebrity
Say something witty, controversial or offensive enough to a celebrity on Twitter and you might just get a response – especially if they're desperate for attention themselves. Or you can just be safe in the knowledge that you can pop up in celebs' feeds by sending them daily tweets and there's nothing they can do to stop it. Just don't mess with Stephen Fry (see the above homophobe swiftly dispatched).
Make going back to work less painful
The first 72 hours off will induce carefree elation, but come the fourth and final day - Jubilee day - the dreaded 'Sunday feeling' will kick in. Having an adequately geeked out office to return to should soften the blow, and with a few well placed purchases you'll have your gadget Nirvana-away-from-home in no time. Get started with an awe-inspiring desk from our five of the best geek desks, and treat your rump to one of our five of the best geek chairs. You'll be the talk of the office, in a good way this time. Also check out these geek chairs.
