the eyes are everywhere!


I know I owe you a picture of my fabulous Eiffel Tower lamp, so here you go... Isn't it fun!


I wanted to give you a broader view of the office, but right now it would take me an hour to clear it of incriminating papers and to cover up my diploma, so that will have to wait.

I will, however, give you a peek into one of the most fun parts of my office.

When I was out on Monday, my favorite colleague attacked my office and deposited little gummy, rubbery, sticky eyeballs all over the place. Literally EVERYWHERE.

So when I arrived on Tuesday morning, I found eyeballs in the printer, eyeballs on the bookshelves...

Eyeballs under my desk and in my plants...

Eyeballs in my drawers and on my chair... (my stash of vitamins and whole grain goldfish too)

And eyeballs in my keyboard and on my festive pumpkins...

This is only about 1/3 of the total number of eyeballs in my office. There are also eyeballs on each deck of the Eiffel Tower, as well as living on the tape dispenser and the spare umbrella in the office. She also gave me the ghost candle! Isn't she the best?

I can promise that my office, with the red lamp and shade and the pumpkins, ghosts and rubbery sticky eyeballs, is definitely the most festive in the whole firm. I am very popular with the summer associate interviewees, as you can imagine.

It's cool, but I'd feel like looking over my shoulder all day! They're watching me! :)

My husband LOVES Halloween, so I should post pictures of how he likes to do our house up. If he decides to do it this year...
