We've moved offices. I'm still in a cube, but now I have a wall of windows. It's really bright and sunny and I'm delighted.
We've all spent the week getting things set up the way we like them, installing software - both software that we need (and wow does Adobe CS take a long time to install!) and fun stuff, like iTunes and IM software.
I introduced my colleague Bob to Trillian. Which I like because you can have email notification and IM from multiple accounts. But when Trillian installed, it also put in something that makes the weather and pollen information pop up. We both sort of scratched our heads on that one.
The best part of the new place, besides the amazing location and swank office and fantastic bar/restaurant downstairs, is that I sit near really great people. Positive, nice, interesting, funny people. We haven't all quite gotten used to each other yet, though.
So yesterday morning, I was settling in, pulling up email, when I heard this voice, seemingly from above. . .
"Tree pollen is moderately high, but grass pollen is very high. Fortunately, you don't need to worry about weed pollen today."
