Turns out...

...the grapevine was right.

This is the last week. Next Monday, I'll be down one floor, over three offices, and a world away.

Went down just now to scope out the new digs. The office is smaller, but not in a bad way. What I have right now is a lot of wasted floor space that makes everyone jealous, but the new place has the stuff I need--a desk, a computer, file space, and a nice drafting table. And it's on a corner, so I still get a view of the park AND a view toward the parking deck.

SO, this week, gotta get my boss squared away on how to use a computer and where all the magic paper is kept and stuff like that, and I really suppose I need to start boxing things up.

8/20/07 - a day that will live in infamy. Aw heck, we're all happy for ya. A corner office and all sounds pretty nice - how about some before and after pix?

Will you have one of those "executive" fridges where you can safely and confidently store your Diet Coke stash? Put a straw in a cold 2L bottle and you'd be set to sketch all afternoon.

Sigh. I knew the day would come.

I'm sure it is crazy getting everything done this week that needs doing. Good luck.

I'll be sure and post some pics, Marc. I'm not sure about the status of their food prep area down there, though. Obviously, I should have done a better job researching this important area of concern!

And yep, Jordana, there's much to do this week. And I don't particularly look forward to it.

Isn't it exciting to finally have an official date? And a corner office - with views! Makes my view of the backside of the pink church pale in comparison.

Here's hoping your current boss is a quick learner, and won't have to call you next week to find things.

Well, exciting in a way, but as I told Doc Smith, it's also kind of a weird feeling, too.

As for quick learners, well, I have a feeling I'll be getting calls.
