    Yet Another Work Update
    1) I've been getting small assignments from one partner in dribs and drabs. Otherwise, my closest interactions are with the Internets.

    It seemed like a good thing when I first arrived that my computer does not face the door. I hate it when my computer faces the door and my back the wall - I feel constantly watched. So when I walked into this temporary office of mine, I was pleased with the arrangement.

    HOWEVER (of course).

    The computer faces a window. A highly reflective window.

    There is at least one attorney in the office who looks at my window every time she passes. It makes me feel guilty, b/c 96% of the time, it's on some form of personal e-mail or a news website. But I shouldn't feel guilty, b/c I'm not blowing off WORK in order to do these internet things. I have no work.

    2) Another odd perk -- free pads and tampons in the women's bathroom (I'm assuming they're only in the women's bathroom). There are machines like in most places, but there is a sign over the little $.25 sign that says FREE!! Nice. I don't use either, b/c I'm a Keeper person (boys probably don't wanna click through to this one ) (and I highly recommend it to all women who may need such a thing on a monthly (moonly?) basis).

    3) I am a huge fan of the temperature control system here. They keep the office in general pretty darned chilly. I am so used to places going to HYPER heat in the winter, that I never get to wear my favorite warm sweaters. But here, they keep it cold. And then, everyone has their own personal little temp control unit. At first, I thought it was only an air conditioner, but today I was SO. DAMNED. COLD. with my lightweight shirt and even still with my wool shawl/scarf wrapped tightly around myself, that I had to try the "warmer" setting. Now my office is toasty. Perhaps tomorrow I can wear one of my warm and cozy sweaters and not sweat all day. Woo hoo!!
