And in case you're wondering, yes, I do decorate my bed pillows in vintage Holstein, and the sheets are an early Victorian skull pattern. I've long thought I missed my calling as an interior designer. (Nobody else seems to agree with me.)
My choice was clear.
For those of you wondering who did the stylish decorating job on my cubicle: yup, me again! I've selected a fun and frothy taupe and gray color scheme, and carefully chose the accompanying wall decor to inspire and delight throughout the day. That decor includes an old Bloom County comic strip, a picture of me and my BFF Richard Hatch, an old black-and-white snapshot of JFK and his brother Bobby, a picture of a young Truman Capote, and a casual shot of Marlon Brando, also enjoying a cup of coffee. How is this inspiring? Shut up. It's my cubicle—I'll decorate it any way I want.
Just kidding. I actually took this shot to send to a friend whose last day was Friday. I wanted her to know that we missed her. (We are also sad because the lunch special that day was tuna salad. But mostly we're sad because we miss Jenn.)
Here it is.
Here I am, trying not to resent "my" new gift that will make it easier for me to overfeed Jason. At least I'm smiling, which is more than I can say for Pugsley in the previous picture.
Sadly, even his sweet words couldn't keep me awake.
I think you'll agree it had been a long day.
