Today was like the first day of school. My department moved to a new floor, so the day was spent unpacking, hanging up pictures and meeting our new neighbors. I love decorating my cubicle. It's like decorating your dorm room freshman year, but without some stranger who will be sleeping in your room for the next year.
And my view. Let me tell you about the view. If you stand still enough at my desk, you can actually hear the angels singing. "Aaaaaahhhhhhhh." It's incredible. Two of my cubicle walls are windows, facing west and southwest, toward Pike's Peak. It's divine. Today, I actually watched four little horsies munching on grass on the wildflower-dotted hillside below the mountains. I'm pretty sure tomorrow I'll see Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood playing Ring Around the Rosie under a rainbow. It's that good. Here's a very bad picture of my view, which will hopefully help you see it slightly:Gina, my neighbor, and I heard many times today: "What did you do to get this spot?" and "Don't you feel guilty?" I feel a little guilty. But I'm pretty sure I'll get right over it.
I'm so happy in my little cubicle of heaven. I abhor working indoors in an office. I think perhaps I should have been a manual laborer working under the sun, except that I'm extraordinarily wimpy. But being indoors makes me very sad. Being indoors surrounding by oatmeal and gray cubicle walls makes me even sadder. But my new cubicle is making me happy as a schoolgirl on the first day of school, wearing her new black patent leather shoes.
