How do I survive my last 3 months at work? I work in a dungeon with no windows, and lots of crazy people. More below.

I work in a very small office with 7 other people. We are smooshed in here like sardines. Additionally, there are no windows and most of my co-workers are catty, gossipy, and judgmental. I try my very best not to gossip or get involved in any way with the workplace politics. I take my lunch breaks outside, or go home, to help break up the day. But after half way through the day, I find myself ready to walk out and never come back. I end up surfing the net all day and not doing any work.
I've tried to help out with the feel of the place by doing things like planning lunch potlucks, and other activities for the entire office (and this is encouraged by our executive director), but it doesn't seem to help with the general bad attitude around here.
I can't quit - I need the paycheck - and I'm only here until the end of August, so I feel like I need to stick it out until I move away.
Any suggestions on how to help me get through my dreadful work day?
