First of all, thank you for all of the suggestions on what to do at lunchtime.
Bec made the awesome suggestion of going to a library. Duh, why didn't I think of that?! There is a library less than 2 miles from my office and I can bring something to eat in the car then go in and read magazines or listen to audiobooks and knit - that would be a great way to spend my break. I wouldn't have to spend money on coffee like I would if I went to hang out at the place that rhymes with Barschmucks and I wouldn't be tempted by the treats at the place that rhymes with Funkin' Gonuts.
I'm going to look in to joining the gym near the office.
And so you can see the break room and what I am dealing with...this is a video I took tonight. The guys I work with are being dorky (and so am I) but they are awesome. They make my job bearable. Today was Mike's last day, so there was cake, as usual. (I may have had some. And I may feel like crap because of it. Ahem.) So yeah, you can see that this is part break room and part someone's office. The rumor is that we're moving to a new facility in a few months, and then we will have a real break room. I hope.
