All Moved In

So, I moved out of my old office last Friday, but couldn't move into my new office because the guy who was occupying my new office was "busy" and "didn't have time to move out" on Friday. I was finally able to move in this morning. I have put a lot of thought into the floor plan. As you all know, my office is somewhat challenging due to the evil column that is right smack dab in the middle of the outside wall. But, I vowed to make it work, a la Tim Gunn, and I think I did!

Here's what my new office looks like. As you can see, the column splits the office in two. The prior occupants have had trouble utilizing the entire area of the office. But, I wanted to integrate the column into the floor plan instead of trying to avoid it and end up like my predecessors. So, here is my solution (for now). I have ordered a black futon couch that will be located in this little nook here. When it arrives I'll swap out the writing desk and put it in the nook. As you can see, I have cleared an entire blank wall. Mr. Nonny Nu, you have to start helping me figure out which painting we can put on that wall. How about that one with the hell fire and torture?

Anywhoo, for now, I do a portion of my work on the writing desk. The other times, I sit here. This is what I see at my desk.

The plants are going to do just fine. This side of the building really does get some pretty good morning sun. Stubbie also likes his new location. He gets to see people all the time as they walk down the hall.

I think you've done a neat job with your new office. The plants look good where they are at and so does Stubbie. I love the tone of the finish of the bookshelves and writing desk. Excuse me if this is an ignorant question coming from a guy who has spent his life working for non-profit organizations, but does the firm pay for the furniture, or do you have to supply your own?

And I'm jealous of you, evil column, or not. You know why? I don't have an individual office at all. My desk is stationed in a big room with six other desks and six other employees. There are no modular office cubicles and no walls separating any of us. And to top it all off the kitchen where everyone (all 12 employees) stores their lunches and snacks and prepares their food is two steps to the left of my desk. The only access for the whole office to get their food is to pass behind my desk, so there is a constant stream of traffic from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM. There are no doors anywhere so there is absolutely no privacy. Everyone can hear my phone conversations, everyone can see what I'm looking at on my computer. We're really a little Socialist fifedom and even with my status as Director of Consumer Care, I'm just one of The People. So I'm really jealous that you have your own space and can close the door to be by your self if you want.

Sorry for the rant. Your new office is awesome!!!

You know what you need, Man From U.N.C.L.E.? Some Maggi sauce. Put a bottle in your kitchen and invite your coworkers to try it. Soon, you will be basking in the aroma of Maggi. Want me to send you a couple bottles?

you know why NN have an office all by herself? because of her professional status ( I hate to say that, and I have to say it) anyway, may be you can buy a Japanese divider/partition ( made buy paper ) did your dad have one at home? ask him to send to you.

Wow... I should've been a lawyer. You have better office than mine. But wait....15 months....
Oops... Didn't read MAN from U.N.C.L.E.'s comments. Guess there are people worst than me. At least I have a 4 walls and a door and wall space to hang my diploma and pictures. But, I have to buy a lot of stuff for my office too. For a while, I had to buy my own printer if I want to print from my office. You know Uncle Sam only has money for those 3000$ toilet seats.

I can't believe you put the monkey pillow I got for you before my deployment all the way back in that shelve. I wonder where that monkey pillow will be if I had become part of Afghanistan.
