Alien-Free Basement


This morning I remembered once again why I love my little office in the basement.    It has no window, this is true.  But I do have a door to the outside world just a few feet from my office.  I can simply get up, open the door, adjust my eyes to the light, walk up the concrete stairs, breathe fresh air and see what the weather is like.  Then turn around and walk back down the concrete stairs into the dungeon - - I mean basement.

But, yes, I did rejoice when the head honcho attorney asked if I'd like to move downstairs.  Yea!  I said.  I can listen to my radio as loud as I want.  I can turn the a/c on - - even in the winter if I wanted.  The kitchen is in the basement - - and the fridge is always stocked with tons of pop (or soda, depending on where you live).   But the best perk of the basement? - - I don't have to be around a certain person who works upstairs!   And everytime I go upstairs (that's where the bathroom is, and that's where my boss is) and see this person, I silently thank the head honcho attorney for letting me work downstairs.  

And everytime I see this certain person, I think - - maybe the aliens HAVE landed.  Or at least one of them.

  2. Your office sounds pretty awesome!! I remember working in an office with a person who was trying on good days, and downright horrible on bad ones.

  8. Working with an Alien can certainly ruin your work experience..hence your day. Good thing you have an escape in the basement! Wish those Aliens would just stay home if they can't place nice with others! :)

  9. Seems like a good fit for you then, to be "housed" during working hours in the basement. Seems like you could get a lot more peaceful work there done indeed!

    May you have a safe and happy Halloween tomorrow!

  10. I kind of wish they'd let me move into the basement at work. I'm sure I'd get so much more done without all the interruptions ... and that's where the snack machine is :D

    1. Seriously, it is so nice not to have constant interruptions. That way I can eat my snacks in peace.

  11. I would love the basement too -- EXCEPT it would kill me to have no window! My office window looks out on the front of the school but I also have an inside window which allows me to monitor the front desk - very handy when there are parents coming in that I don't want to see - I can hide out!
    Around here, no matter what the brand, it's called coke.
