This is good. It turns out nearby offices (to paraphrase Office Space) had concerns about our “flair”: The staff had done a really nice string-of-lights a year ago, and people were missing it! Now they can see the ’05 version of it. Department head Roman especially likes it: she can stand in her doorway and survey the entire twinkly spread. Keith added joke signs as extra entertainment.
Yay! I can do seasonal decoration! Seriously, I usually forget to do it, but this October I got a pumpkin for my desk (and it’s still there; I drew on it instead of carving it). This is fun.
* Edited to Add: This is not to imply that I’m actually tall. I’m 5’7", medium height-medium-build. (I'm also not saying that my co-workers could easily work on the 7 1/2 floor of the Mertin Flemmer Building, either.)
