Feeling a pervasive lack of interest in, and difficulty concentration on, the current activity

I have never suffered such a sustained period of boredom in my entire life. In fact, hardly suffered it at all. It's becoming chronic and I need help - it's affecting my blogging!!

Have you ever been bored? or had a boring job? Aside from just walking away - do you have any tips on how to get through the day, achieve the mind-numbing tasks and still have a brain left by the time you get home?
