What I didn't realize, though, was how haunted this building was going to feel after everybody else moved out.
There are now only four of us left working here, and it's going to be that way for a few weeks, until we move upstairs and HR and some other offices move in.
On the positive side, I can now, with impunity ...
- Eat chili garlic tofu for lunch without worrying about offending my office mate, who has moved to campus
- Play music a little louder while I work (old Tori Amos for now, Spoon in a minute)
- Make phone calls in relative privacy
- Burn a candle
It's still going to be a weird few weeks.
