    Guess the Office Desk Fort (AIB Guess the City)

    While giving a tour of my office to a friend, we stumbled across this. Can you guess whose Desk Fort this is? First two look innocent enough.





    But wait, there's more....













    Have fun guessing!!!!

    Everyone should be able to personalize their office space any way they like.
    You guys shouldn't give Rumpy such a hard time.

    ( I bet you had such a fun time doing this!!!!! )
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Is that door I see in the background for quick escapes at 4:30 or did they stick you in a hallway?

    It's for quick escapes if the guy in the office next to me goes postal. Seriously. That guy ain't right in the head.

    They should have stuck me in the closet with the heating and a/c unit.

    That office should have been for the guy that sounds like he's coughing up a chicken wing (see comment about postal guy), but he switched the name on the doors when the movers where putting the furniture in. RJ said I could move to another vacant office if I wanted. I'm still debating that. The door does come in handy when I have to chuck huge brown spiders out from under the desk fort though.

    I can see easily moving your standard office furniture, but wouldn't it be a pain to relocate the fort?

    BTW and OT, once again I've lost some pants. Anyone seen them??

    Remember, this is a right to work state. No union protection here.

    That made my monday... and I just got in and haven't had yet.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Hey, I want to know if Rumpy got his revenge. (And thank goodness I am 6 hours away now!).
    Remember, RT, it was the potato salad thing that did it...

    I guess I should start locking my office door when I leave at 2:00 in the afternoon. Oh BTW, do you know who has a master key to all the locks? Hmmm....who could that be now? Is it Satan?

    Trail Nazi was telling me today that she has a "cave" which sounded much like a desk fort, so I urged her to post pics. Then she said no, it just meant she turned off the lights in her office. Sigh. Let's get more inventive, people!

    Sheesh, it wasn't mirrors, it was flattened Diet Dew cans. Uh, did I just say something in public I shouldn't have?

    I believe RJ was speaking metaphorically or some such nonsense. Anyway, he didn't mean in any sense of the word that he would be away this weekend. Think what you will and remember, probation...
