the day before friday  
Today someone claim-jumped my hotel. Hotels are just cubicles or tiny rooms on the office floor where visitors without permanent desks set up shop for a day or month or whatever. Since my summer replacement is still at my desk until the end of today, I've been hotelling. It was a tiny room but I kind of liked it. Today, though, for lack of any other space, I've been put in a proper office. I want it! I want it! If I dig in my heels and barricade the door, can they really make me leave? I wonder.

I am eating grapes, I am postponing work, I am waiting for noon when I'll be going to lunch with a co-worker.

The Thursdayness of it all almost makes me happy.

Well, you cound try a sub-machine gun behind the barricade - that's usually an effective!
Or, how about quickly nipping out and getting a brass name-plate engraved with your name and position (preferably having given yourself a promotion), and screwing it to the door?
Most people seem to get by on bluff, so why shouldn't you?

Hi. I've been following your writing for a while (one of those lurkers who never send feedback). Anyway, now that I'm on LJ I've added you to my flist. I hope that's okay.

Yes, stare them down. Do the 'tude bit. Channel your inner Spike. You deserve this office and you should have it.

Of course, the machine gun and the UZI and the rocket launcher also help when staking out territory.

Eating grapes and postponing work? Yep, you're back in the swing of things!

And, absolutely, do a sit-in in your office. Refuse to leave.
