The Eye of the Beholder

My busy season at work has made it difficult for me to post much recently, but here is a look at my digs at the office.

    Futurism meets brutalism.

  2. Like I tell everybody – Working as a programmer for the Tax Department is not as much fun as it sounds.

  3. I’m not a big fan of minimalism but I have seen art installations at major modern art museums that looked like this. Somebody in the art world must have thought these things were on the cutting edge and spoke to “Man’s inhumanity to man” etc ad nauseum but they made me want to do an art revolution direct action to protest some injustice somewhere like vomiting on the docent. Seriously? This is your working area? Does Virginia Law prohibit a bobblehead of the guvner or a few free hand crayon drawings from a little kid that might brighten your day? Not even the generic motivational poster with a picture of Mount Everest and some slogan like “Reach for the Top!” with some cubicle grafitti artist scrawling over it “and disappear into thin air!”? On second thought, maybe you are better off this way. We don’t want to tip off the taxpayers concerning your wild after hours parties or your annual “Listen to the widows scream” mortgage deed bonfire. Actually it does sound like fun, in fact for quite a few people at this time, having any job at all sounds like fun.

  4. Executive director positions are open now at the Fredericksburg Area Museums, Danville Science Center, Jamestown / Yorktown Foundation (and others). Huge job responsibilities, opportunity to manage large staff to maximum potential, good people skills, fundraising, media exposure, and you can decorate your office however you want and establish office decorating policies for the rest of the staff…. AND …salary range for most of these positions is: less than for programmer at tax department. Enjoy your minimalism and laugh all the way to the bank.

  5. Kind of a trekkie look — is there a holodeck, or merely the routine amenities (foozball and an espresso machine in the employee lounge)?

  6. Were you to set up a light beam detector across your cubicle entrance that triggered the Trek “door-whoosh” sound every time you passed, would it be well received?
