See You In Hell!

Step into my office

I currently have my own office. Yes, I am no longer in the cube farm, but in an honest-to-goodness office....with a door. The firm is so busy, that there is a shortage of workstations....except for one of the offices usually occupied by the principals. So here I am.

This is good for many reasons:

  • I can completely control the temperature of my immediate working environment. When I am cold, I need super ultra fucking fast heat right fucking now!!! That is, until the moment that I suddenly realize that I am too hot. Then COLD!!! NOWWWW!!!!!!!! Crank up the AC because immediate gratification takes too long! Anyone who has ever ridden in a car with me knows this to be true.
  • I can finally open email attachments sent to me by my friend Curtis, without anyone wondering why I am looking at screenshots of gay porn.
  • I can watch bum fights from my window. At least twice a day there is a loud altercation in the park across the street, and now I can see and hear it all, baby!
  • I can use the phone without everyone around me knowing that I am scheduling my yearly pap smear, or ordering refills for birth control pills.

YAY for Jege!!!

I'm now back in an extreme cube farm--and the best part--it's actually part of a medical call center. oh yes. let the games begin. questions about bodily fluids and when the pain began..oh my! The people seem very nice tho.

In December, i'll be near a window though and away from this area. The building rocks tho and is very close to lots of tasty foods.

And it's nice to have a cube and not have to work from home and the people are all really nice, but at least at home, if my 'office mate' Mr. Pabs is mewing annoyingly, i can close the door and after a while, he'll leave me alone. oh well, how many places issue a fancy mod ottoman to every cube?

Floyd used to have a list of cubicle terms but carelessly lost it. The one that always stood out was "Prairie Dogging". This is when someone makes a loud noise in the office and a bunch of heads pop up from the cubicles. If you don't think that's funny, then fuck you, you fucking fuck.

Yes, Prairie Dogging (not to be confused with "gerbiling"). I've heard that one...perhaps it is from Douglas Coupland's "Generation X"...he had a bunch of those Neologisms, like "Cubicle Farm" and "Emotional Ketchup Burst".

Oh please. "Prairie Dogging" is such an old and tired phrase that even my dad's friends use it. It was so not from Douglas Coupland. He used something like "veal fattening pens."

You're right, Lisa! Veal fattening Pens! How could I have forgotten that? I used to use that term all of the time. Fuckin' alzheimer's.....

While Lisa is the consummate critic, Floyd finds nothing amusing in retort. While Floyd finds it dreary to repeat himself, Floyd must extend to Lisa an invitation to eat Floyd's asshole.

I'm so with you on temperature control. And the privacy!! I'd pay rent if I had to, it's that good.

Lisa disrespectfully declines Floyd's invitation. Lisa finds said invite and anyone who extends such to be nasty.
