and here we are...  
I started my new job yesterday, and today they moved my desk. I came back from lunch and here I am! On the other side of the building! Facing a different direction! Annnnnnnd...

Away from the insufferable Laughing Boy!

*gets down on knees, clasps hands together, thanks god fervently, weeping pious tears*

Basically, I'm no longer adjacent to the programmers, who--though I'm sure they're lovely people, when seen from a great distance--often circled my brain like a pack of hyenas and drove me bugfuck. At the moment, there don't seem to be many inhabitants at surrounding desks. I should probably not nurse a deep gratitude until I get a better feel for the average noise level and unique pecularities of this new area.

I'm facing north now, btw, instead of south. I'm facing, in fact, Canada. O Canada! I may quite possibly think of Fraser and Dief every time I come in and sit down. That'd be cool.

ETA: In my new cubicle cabinet is an article of leather straps that appears to be a bondage gag. Hmm. That will stay....

Mazeltov! May all feng shui vibes be in your favor.

Thank you! *g* I have my desk established facing outward, with my back to the wall, as James Bond taught me. It actually makes me very happy, as I couldn't do that in my old cube--I'd have been facing away from the window.

This means you can write porn without people seeing! All desks should be so positioned.

Exactly! *g*

There are windows not too far from me. I'm kind of facing one, though it's not in my cube and I don't own rights to the window blind. ;>)

Closer to the break room than I was before--and I can leap for an exit at any moment, should a squadron of attack clowns arrive.

You got the Canadian bondage desk?! That's some seriously good feng shui, that is.

Hee. There are also giraffes in my immediate view.

Man, I've never found anything in an inherited cabinet better than a set of Christmas lights.

"there don't seem to be many inhabitants at surrounding desks"

That's great! If and when interlopers arrive, you'll have the territorial advantage... Maybe you should enlarge your cube, day by day, almost imperceptibly, at the expense of the absentees...

OMG! Don't you want to know the story that resulted in it getting left there? I would be making discrete inquiries about the prior cube-occupant (and maybe trying to get their number)...
