Yes you did predict that!!!! But it was such an odd, old-fashioned looking iron. I've never even had an iron like that. And I'm old!!!

Yeah Mr. Coffee's are good, I just have the cone filters already! ARGH!! That's a nice feature.

See there you go.


Pause feature, ability to make the night before and have it start without you, thermal carafe..... That's it.

My Pampered Chef carafe holds the coffee after I take a mug, but won't fit the whole pot. So it's decent, if I don't end up with a thermal carafe.

We are also moving to another floor in April, co-located with development. Open floor plan so we collaborate more and be more speedy. The expert told us at recent all-hands meeting that noise volume actually drops in open layout. I didn't believe him but based on what you say, there might be some truth to it.
That 5 minute commute must be really nice. When I first moved to FL to be with DH, he was less than a mile from work. After we bought a house, he was about 2 miles away til IBM changed his office. Then it still wasn't bad. Almost 5 miles then. Nice huh.

Even with a screen share there's no substitute for seeing someone's expression when they get it--or aren't quite there yet. My manager's big on communicating ideas through pictures so if I couldn't sit there and doodle things out on a white board with him it would probably take us a lot longer to sort out some of the really intricate stuff we need to put together.

I just like having enough of a cube wall that now and then I can just go back to my little den and be left alone to think and work. Oh--that and pin up pictures from trips.
Yeah that is kinda weird. Oh well, hope it's okay for you in the long run!

DH got out of the Navy in 1990. Since then, the shortest commute he's had has been about 20 miles, one way. And that was only for about 3 or 4 years.

I was so sad.

I still iron my nice shirts for work when I wear them (wore a lot of cotton knit in old location). Which will now be... every day. (I still iron in batches when I do laundry. Ironing and classical music FTW).

Well, the theory is that if you need to do something that requires actual conversation, you book one of the 7 conference rooms on the floor. Which is great in theory except that one single person will book one to dial into a conference call (which we've been told is fine to do from our desks). So you'll have 3 or 4 people who need to do something jointly and all the rooms are full of one person on the phone.

Yesterday I'd booked a room for our group's weekly meeting and a bunch of the execs had evidently just gone in there to make a call. When they saw us waiting outside the room (group of 6 people with laptops, coffee and notebooks, coming up on the half hour, DUH), they started glaring at us. I though mgr handled it well. He stood prominently in front of glass next to door looking at his watch for a min, then a 1 min past, quietly opened the door and asked them diplomatically if they realized we'd booked it, and was there a misunderstanding? They got really snarly and huffy with him--seriously like huffy kids whose Mom told them they couldn't do something.

Actually having slept on it, I think that's why the floor kind of freaks me out: it's partly the open cubes but mostly the suit crowd walking around treating everyone else like peons who don't matter. That's the side of corporate America I don't enjoy--I guess I've been lucky enough to have spent so many years in an environment (with only 2 or 3 exceptions) with great managers who really care about the people they work with, and where people judge you by your work, not who made your tie or pumps. I definitely feel much more content and at home in that setting.

The other worker bees on our floor are the project managers and quants (uber-high level mathematical statisticians, absolutely brilliant folks) so it's not like the execs are sharing the floor with homeless people who wandered in to use the rest rooms. And frankly, even if they were, there's no reason to look down your nose at the other human beings (although I do support holding your nose if they're wearing too much cologne or haven't showered for a few weeks). I think I just read too much Walt Whitman at an impressionable age to have much patience with that. Fine, dude, I get that what you make in a quarter would probably pay off my mortgage and that's awesome! But we all still play ball for the same team, and without the quants and project mgrs and us, you couldn't afford those $400 shoes.

On the other hand, it's a wonderful opportunity to dredge up all those observational skills I learned in anthropology back in college. I think if I see it as an opportunity to observe a newly-discovered tribe, that might make it kind of fun.

Seriously, this post cracked me up.

It's been a crazy week. We're getting settled in our new building. It's corporate HQ, so full of teeny women in Ann Taylor wardrobes with perfect hair and dudes in suits and ties. We don't have cubes any more, just desks, so I feel like a giant free range chicken sitting out in the open. Can you tell I miss my old window cube with its nice walls?

It's a very weird atmosphere--a cross between a funeral home (with no walls, everyone on the floor is very quiet) and Grand Central Station (you have to walk through our area to get through the exec offices so lots of bigwigs walking up and down the aisle next to our desks having very LOUD conversations because we're all basically furniture). I finally brought my iPod in and I'm dealing by listening to the Grateful Dead and John Denver all day while I solve problems for the Man.

Oh, and still wearing clogs to work. Sorry, but if I'm in khaki slacks, a silk shirt, and nice silver jewelry, the Ann Taylor crew can suck it. I'm not loving it but I still like the part where going in every day enables me to continue living indoors and buy kibble for everyone so I'll deal.
I love Ann Taylor.

Sorry you aren't enjoying the new work environment, MO. I have to admit, having only worked in small office settings, it sounds pretty exciting to me.

good morning. Already baking PB cookies for a person at work (whom I shockingly actually enjoy working with because he actually performs duties) who is moving up and on, or should I say southward and sort of laterally and for Jacob's birhtday celebration at school.
Later I hope to get two 14x14 cakes baked off so I can assemble and decorate tomorrow. Oh and I'm cleaning.
And feeding people. Tomorrow I'm not making dinner tho. No way I'm going to work all day cleaning then mess up the kitchen again lol

I usually do a deep cleaning every other week. It always falls on the same week as grocery week(bc I like to clean everything before restocking the pantry and fridge). So, I end up cleaning and then going to the grocery but refusing to cook even though we've just loaded up on groceries. Grocery day is eat out day or pizza day.

I'm got a pumpkin bread in the oven.

For those counting calories, I have a tasty little treat recipe.

1 box of spice cake mix
15oz can of pumpkin

Mix together, bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Makes 18 cupcakes. 84 calories each.

I don't clean that much nearly that often. Bathroom every two weeks or so with touch ups in between. I don't even go to the grocery store every month since I can pick up stuff at Target while I work. I usually time my grocery trips to big meat sales

almost done with like, 9 dozen cookies? I should count huh? I just need to have enough to give about 60 to the school. I may give another manager who is leaving the left overs but I really don't want to

Yeah I tend to do the same thing. Bring home all this stuff, get it all put away, and say, "let's go out."

I have heard of that from WW people. I believe you can also combine a can of soda with a cake mix. Diet soda means no calories.


The only sub I actively do now is subbing applesauce for the oil.

So all the cookies are baked. I packaged up two dozen and delivered those and got a few cold things at Target that I didn't get yesterday (yogurt, milk, butter) and now will be packing up some for the school and I will get rid of some to the other manager. Don't need them in the house. I need to make lunch and also start the cakes.

Fun times, V!

I can remember a lot of cupcakes in my car on the way to school. The kids' classes had 50 kids in them. So four dozen. Store bought. Could NOT take in homemade cupcakes. Only did that one year, too expensive.

Their Montessori (public school magnet) classes were 3 in 1 so grades pre-K, pre-K and K were in one room with two teachers and two aides.

So the horrible second period bad hockey call from our last game was indeed rescinded as they said it would be.

There was a big collision and no ref signalled a penalty. Because there wasn't one. Good hit. Both went down. But then the other guy chases our guy down and attacks him. So the refs have a confab and call the fight, call the other guy for instigating, but then tack on a penalty on the play (you know, the one nobody called anything?) and said he had hit the head with intent to harm. Um, seriously? That is NOT on the replay and how interesting nobody saw it.

So the next day it's rescinded. But that doesn't give us back the five minute power play the other team had not to mention the loss of our guy for the game because of his bad behavior (which was not). Grrrrrrrrrrr......

Guess this is how the Chicago Blackhawks continue to win, I guess their coach is scarier than ours.

Sorry Marge. lol

I love hockey, I discovered it back when I didn't have a TV in Atlanta, a good friend had season tickets and I frequently was his "date" - he had two seats with the hope of taking a date, but 99% of the time didn't....

He generally went with two other guys who left their wives home. One of them (the one with the handlebar mustache) became a dear friend until he died on February 29, 1988. Three months after he and his wife had their first child. He had an aortic aneurysm, got up one morning, and it burst.

The friend I went with lives in Colorado and I think he and his wife adopted a child from Russia a number of years ago. He's horrible at keeping in touch.

Second layer in oven. Time for a drink! just kidding

I'm nervous because I have no back up plan. If the cake doesnt' come out of the pan right I'm kinda screwed. The first one was good so I'm a little less nervous. But give me and hour and I"ll be nervous again when ti's time to turn this one out.

I did feel much better when I realized that! Of course shortly after that I woke up with horrible sinus headache and threw up.

WFH'd today. Sigh.
