    I haven't heard of "mark around" before. Can you give me some context?

    may be i heard it wrong...I guess it is meant to be doing unimportant stuff while you have a specific task to perform.
    so what do u say that in one word?

    There's goldbricking. I think that might be the word.

    In BE we use the term muck around.

    'Stop mucking around and get on with your work'

    Finding a job isn't easy. You can't muck around, you need to get your CV out there, where companies can see it.

    :)
