Back on the corporate horse.

Thanks for the good thoughts about the job and the boobs.

The boobs are OK, as, too, is the job.

Today was my first day at Globotron. I am pleased to report that people actually talked to me, the boss took all of us newbies out for lunch, and I actually have a desk next to a window.

This, of course, is in stark contrast to Mega Corporate Behemoth and The Cube of Despair. And on my first day at Mega Corporate Behemoth, the boss invited me to lunch with her and Crazy Coworker. They talked to each other the entire time and blatantly ignored my attempts to join the conversation.

My Guy mentioned that it's like I'm getting back into the dating pool after having a really horrible boyfriend. He's so right. And my first date with Globotron was pretty OK.

So far, the only thing that gives me pause about Globotron is that the toilet seats are uncomfortable.

Seriously. It's not like I was camped out there for more than a quick tinkle, but in that 30 seconds, I thought, "Damn! This was not ergonomically designed with my ass in mind!"

But I think I can live with it.

A window? Lucky! I slaved in cubicles for years before I got a window.

Glad things are going well at the new job! Windows are lovely, aren't they?

Ergonomically designed seats reminds me of a story I heard years ago about Patrick Stewart/Captain Picard and how the seat he had on Star Trek was designed just for his bum. I wonder if that was really true? He always looked real comfie in that chair.

Window??? I see holiday gel clings coming soon!
comfortable toilet seats are a must. Maybe you could bring a cushy seat in, stored under the sink in the bathroom? Or have a rolling bathroom suitcase? Stocked with a cushy seat, good t.p. and all the feminine supplies you might need....... just a thought.
