Think of temping as like being a superhero. Wherever there is photocopying, you will be there. Wherever there is thirstiness, you will bring tea. Wherever there is illness, you will find short-term employment. You are above petty office rivalries, detached from gossip, not invited to post-work drinks. You appear only when needed and vanish long before anyone can learn your name. You are The Temp. At least until you find something better.
