13 things in or near my office at work!!!




1. Desks.... Well duh!!! On desks ya have everything needed, paper, markers, pen and pencils, post-it, etc... calculator....

2. Fax Machine... Lots of work comes from it...

3. Filing cabinet... I think there's 4 cabinet in our office...

4. Computer!!!! Again, this is major work tool!!! With all the software needed for the industry... I've put a picture of George Clooney as a screen on my PC at work. I look at this sweetie pie ALL day... wink

5. Ergonomic chairs!!!! An ergo therapist came to deliver me a special chair and took time to explain to me the do's and don't's of someone who has to sit ALL DAY...

6. We have safety hats (ya know grey protective hats) with our glasses.... again, this is a big DUH!!! Because BMC's installation are first and foremost an industrial plant...

7. Cute guys!!!! We are very few women for a bunch of men and some are real cute... I'm not looking for a date, I would even refuse to date a co-worker but I can still appreciate the beauty of these guys eh? lol

8. Fridge, microwave, water machine, coffee machine etc... well equipped to facilitate our long hours. mrgreen (Fridge keeps my lunch cold)

9. A conference/lunch room for my department... There's a cafeteria for everyone but my department prefers to relax and stay in our part and I do enjoy bringing my lunch, eating with coworkers, then checking my emails or even read...It's my own hour!!!! smile

10. Near my office are the many offices from all the other co-workers... It's a BIG DEPARTMENT!!!!

11. I forgot to say we have phones, each of us and we get calls, work-related ALL the time, it's part of the job!!! smile

12. Near my desk, I have a picture of all my friends who were at THE SURPRISE last Saturday!!!

13. I also have a pot of instant coffee smile, numerous herbal tea boxes... There is a pot of candies, lollipops... confused That I try to ignore!!!! lol

I'm with you with #4 and #7. Every office should have photos of George Clooney and real-live cute guys. Makes the day go faster. (No wonder you're so enthusiastic about this new job!)

Ornery's Wife said...

Instant coffee, but of COURSE! :)

Will you add some Halloween candy in the top desk drawer tomorrow?

Great to have good looking guys around. Aesthetics are important!

No Nonsense Girl said...

Susan: you are very sweet...Thanks for your words!!!! I too hope it continue to go well, I've waited a long time for this. I was ready!!!

Breeni: Thanks!!!

Nicholas: Yeah I am lovin it!!! and I know herbal tea isn't tea. In french we call it "tisane" which isn't thé. ;)

Gal herself: I'm glad you are supporting me. I have replaced George Clooney by Mr.Cat who is now the king of my computer...They have laughed but my boss's pets are on his computer also!!!

The guys are cute but fun, interesting and intelligent!!!! Great bunch!!!

omery's wife!!! Thanks, yeah, well equipped!!!

Lara: no openings right now but eventually in the future?? wanna come to canada??? ;) Same to you my friends, same to you!!!

Lori: thanks to you!!!! And yeah on #7!!! :P

moondancr: yeah ad they came with the package. An ergo chair, a desk, everything I needed (steel toe shoes, protective glasses, a protective helmet) a lunch bag and a hirt!!! :)

Thanks Raggedy!!!! I've visited you!!!

Claudia: yeah, ain't that cool that he visited me??? He informed me on many things and told me to give him a call if needed!!! I never thought a company would hire an ergo therapist to teach me about good positions when you work sitting down...

I love this new adventure and new life!!!! :)

AnGlOpHiLe FoOtBaLl FaNaTiC said...

I'm with you. My desk at work (when I worked) was very tidy & had so many little fun things. Like post Its and flaggies in every color under the sun. I'd happily stare at George with you!

pussreboots said...

The beauty of my job is that there is no need for filing cabinets, safety hats, or fax machines. All of my work comes over the computer. LOL. Happy TT.

Cordia Amant said...

I would have to add cats to my list. Bizarre, I know, but I work with very eccentric people in an old barn converted into offices.

SJ Reidhead said...

#7 tickles my fancy.

damozel said...

Sounds like a pretty nice office...cute guys, fax machines, and everything else you could think of or want.

You don't have your blog set to allow links to blogs from other platforms :(

I'm #82---we've got some amazing photos (nothing to read, just the eye candy)

julia said...

Followed your link to The Surprise. That sounded like fun! Hope George Clooney makes the workdays sweeter.

Cecily R said...

Okay, I know I'm dumb, but I'm still jealous of the lunch box. Do you bring it to work? Is it there?

How many cute guys? Do they look hot in their safety hats? DO you? I bet you do!

~Yen~ said...

Sounds like everything you have is there! :) Take care of your job!
Mine is up here;
Thursday Thirteen
Happy TT and Happy Halloween!

jehara said...

i love me some herbal tea. glad the new job is working out so well for you. and i hear you on the getting up early. i don't have to now, but i used to work the opening shifts at starbucks in college and that SUCKED in terms of getting up. 4am anyone? so not natural.

Xakara said...

I want cute guys by my desk! That should be mandatory, you get three free cute guys to hover around your desk for the length of your warranty.

I want a nifty ergo chair, my back would like me again. *wink*

Happy TT

~Xakara <-------Please use this link

No Nonsense Girl said...

anglophile football fanatic: Yeah George Clooney is a must eh?;)

pussreboosts: Yeah, the beauty of technology... we file everything both in a real file and on the system... Happy TT top you too!!!

cordia: yeah cats are odd in a work environment, depending on what you do eh? ;)

SJreidhead: Happy TT!!!

Cecily R: about the lunch box: I use it everyday to pack my lunch. :)

Cute guys, hmm maybe 15 of them are real cute. On this half not more have a SO, the others are single. ;)

They look hot in their safety hats, they look cute even with their glasses on (protective glasses) But when we are *IN* the actual office, ordepartment, we don't have to wear them. It's to be in the plant, at the moment you go in for whatever reason like going to the office in the front, check how the machinery is doing. Go and leave your office or the building, we have to wear the security apparel....

The guys I'm referring to are part of the executives , the workers I don't really see... :-S


Damozel: I've posted on your blog about this issue, if you can help me., I would change the settings or whatever is needed. :)

Julia: yeah, the surprise was very fun!!!

Yen: Yeah, I'll take care of it!!!! :)

jehara: You are right on, getting up early sucks but gotta do whatever is needed to keep a magnificent job!!! :) Have a great thursday!!!! :)

xakara: Right on about the chair and the cute guys!!!! LOL!!!!

I've visited each of you guys!!!

Have a great thursday!!!

Amy Palko said...

I am surrounded by books, books and more books. In fact, I'm drowning in them. The phone is balanced precariously on top of a pile of them. My glasses are threatening to topple off another pile. My mug of tea is fighting for desk space. Note to self: must buy another book shelf!
Thanks for visiting my TT at Lives Less Ordinary :-)

Janet said...

I worked on an air force base for years...I miss the cute guys!

Joyismygoal said...

you seem a perfect fit there and are aware of all the fun aspects as well as the work is the dating of co workers forbidden It never seemst o go well does it

Bloggers said...

Love the 13! Sounds like you have a great place to work.

My 13

Kats said...

Except for the safety hats, we work in the same type of environment! LOL Although, I could probably go to maintenance and find a couple of safety hats. Happy TT! Great list. My #13 is up at http://katskrackerbox.wordpress.com/2007/11/01/thursday-thirteen-13-13-haunting-halloween-recipes/

Nice workplace! I did not have all of that when I worked! I could use on of those chairs now! :)

Jill said...

April Elizabeth said...

Leeann said...

My workspace is my couch. With 4 little ones running around. Can I trade them for a lollipop? :)

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh I'm totally jealous of the ergonomic chair! :)

amanda rae said...

Izzybella said...

Ergonomic chairs rock!! I am glad you are liking your new job so much! It makes such a difference when you're excited to go to work.
