A whole week of sunshine and blue skies in the middle of a Swedish February: what an unexpected treat. I feel as if I was given a gift that I couldn't use, because of having to work. I wanted to play hookey so bad this week, like Anders did, taking off early to fetch the kids and go play in town. Because it was moving week at work though, there was just too much to do.
IKEA warning: Never, ever buy Reslig frames if you're expecting to just slip a picture in between the glass and back and hang it up. The posters I designed for the new offices came out great and we went to IKEA to buy frames for about 40 of them. Unfortunately, upon arriving back at the office to start the framing process, we discovered that one must:
- unscrew 3 of the 4 corner screws
- remove 2 sides of the metal frame
- remove the placeholder paper
- peel off plastic protective wrap ON BOTH SIDES of the plexiglass
- put the whole thing back together
- screw in the 3 screws again
We went over to the new office to drop a couple of things off, and there is NO furniture in 2 of the 3 wings still. They have 2 days left to completely place about 100 desks, 200 bookcases, and various other furniture. I suspect I'll have no work station when I arrive on Monday morning.
If not, I'm playing hookey.
