mmm...cake

this month i am working at p&g. it is the first time in my life i have ever been exposed to the open cubicle work environment. i have a whole other level of appreciation for office space now. and being easily distractable by nature, in this setting i am particularly easily distracted. for instance, at 11:46 today i sent beth the following email: "i smell cake. somewhere in this sea of cubes there are baked goods, dammit."

the smell lingered all afternoon, tantalizing and tormenting me.

these are the times i need a stash of little debbies in my desk drawer.

I'm so sorry - i've been in cubicle land for quite some time...and it isn't fun!

But alas - a job is better than the alternative!!!!

And yes - Office Space and The Office become much funnier from here on out!

i am very sorry you have to spend your life in a cube (especially since i now have first hand experience), but you are right, life in a cube is better than life in a cardboard box.
