Today is official moving day. Everything is packed, movers are coming, and boxes will migrate.
Wednesday, we were given a chance to tour our new 'temporary building.' As we entered, our tour guide said "Welcome to 1967." How right he was.
First off, on some of the main doors, there are some fancy woodcarvings. I'm not sure what the building was used for before, but it looks like the last owners loved to decorate.
There are different 'coat of arms' designs on a handful of doors. It reminded me of a Knights Templar building, or an old Masonic Center.
The building has two floors: The main floor and the basement. There is office space in both, and I was fortunate enough not to get placed in the dungeon. Downstairs was just plain weird.
First off, it has a sauna down there.
First thought was "BADASS! We can have department meetings down here!" Then I remembered that I'm the youngest of all my coworkers by a good 25 years. Maybe...not.
Secondly, there is a 'pinhead room' downstairs.
I'm not sure why someone designed the room like this, but they did. Yes, it goes to a point. The corner is about 8 inches wide, and the entire room is like that. Starts out wide, but slowly closes in to the point. Maybe that can be the disciplinary room? "Bob! Go stand in the corner!"
Upstairs is better, but not by much. Again, this building was made in the 60's. Yellow stained glass is everywhere.
The main conference room looks like UFO's are about to land on the meeting table.
And the heating/air conditioning vents look like they were slapped on not too long ago.
Does anyone else see the face on the wall? The eyebrows? The eyes? I laughed a little when I saw this room, but noone else seemed to see what I saw.
So today is moving day. Possibly tomorrow, if we don't finish. Our new home for the next 4 months. Get out the lava lamps and the LSD, it's going to be a trip.
