The NEW Secret Possum Lair!

I finally got to use the computer at home, so now you can be impressed with the new digs. Or not.

First up, these two show things in their unkempt, unput-up state. Ignore the date/time stamp on these two--the camera had an aneurism this morning after I put in new batteries.

Some of the junk is mine, but most of what you see out of the boxes is the stuff that had to be moved out.



Now then, after a few hours of cleaning, we see a much cleaner view. But first, a look out the fascinating windows! Here's the roof and the parking deck across the street. Please, keep your gasps of admiration to an appropriately quiet level.


And here's the view of the park you've seen before, except from one floor up, and closer to the center. first_day_4.JPG

Now, here's my tidy desk area...


...and my less than tidy drafting table, that was completely full of tidiness by the close of business today. I am content with the progress that has been made.


Next? Artwork and photos! YAY!

Nice digs. Hope you enjoy the new responsibilties and challenges.

Gasp. Wow. You'll have an even nicer view of the next B-ham American Idol. At least you get to see sunshine, clouds and blue sky. I'm stuck in a tomb. Is Catherine the only one left to supply artwork for the wall, or has she aged out of that too?

I was expecting to see an Acme Professional Pencil Sharpener on the drafting table, but I guess they did away with those due to folks trying to sharpen mechanical pencils. Have you got a Dell, dude? (Please supply model number if possible.)

PS Don't worry - that feeling like you're in the twilight zone will eventually go away. Eventually.

Wow, that IS a nice office, Terry. I did not realize you were a "corner office" VIP.

Thank you everyone!

Marc, actually the view to the park isn't quite as good, and I can't see anything below my window except another section of roof. Before my office was right above the steps, and you could look straight down and see interesting things of an inappropriate nature. As for artwork, they've all got some to put up, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. The mechanical pencil sharpener is in the drawer, safe from being absconded with. I had a Dell before, but it was icky beige. This one is a GX270, which is meaningless to me.

And finally, Stan, in this case VIP stands for Very Insignificant Person.

So does an "Insignicant" person sign things? Or they're not allowed to sign things? Or they're an Ensign?

Curious people want to know

Obviously, it means they don't have access to a dictionary, Mr. Smartypantsdan.

Then there are those of us who don't even see the mispelling.

Heh. Indeed.

Me thinks Dr. Weevil's Brother is a bit of a joker.

Or a midnight toker.
