Illustration, quiet spot and cookies.

1. A whiteboard appears in the office, intended to improve efficiency and productivity. Within 24 hours it has been covered in drawings of everyone in the building.

2. At lunchtime, desperate for some peace, I go down to our half-moved-into breakroom. There are no chairs yet, but the heating is on, so I sit against the radiator for a snooze.

3. A mysterious parcel of strange, bobbly texture has come in the post. It turns out to be a bag of Tollhouse chocolate morsels sent by Joe in Vegas. He hopes I will use them for making Tollhouse cookies and send him photographs of the result. (That would be photos of the cookies, not my fat bot after eating all the cookies.)

  1. I'm not sure what photos I am looking for - either sounds worth posting (or at least looking at)

  2. Did you look like a tramp, sleeping in the empty room at work? (I was going to say trampette, but that's something completely different.)

  3. gotta love office wipeboards!

    my own favorite in my own office was one that lasted a few weeks: someone drew a bare map of australia and the rest of us drew on to it, including flight routes to sydney and kangaroos.
