Nebulous tasks "that can hardly be assigned" should be avoided IMHO.
However, if you really find you have them and don't want to bother
expressing them in a precise fashion, what about a task for that, e.g. 
"Project A Clean-up"?

Your work day starts when the clock starts on a :WORK: task.
You want to have lunch? Clock in a "Lunch" or "Break" task, that does
not have a :WORK: tag.

I don't really see the need for a second clock so far?!
