Any repetitive time-wasting task not fit for a monkey. Busy work, drill and practice, boring school work, a waste of effort, something mindless.
I spent all morning on monkeywork!
Got all my monkeywork done early so I could have some fun.
Monkeywork got you down?
Your monkeywork is all over the place.
