I feel lucky ro have made it out alive with my sanity intact.

Ugh, kind of interesting office to look at, but I sure wouldn't to work in it. I'd feel like an exhibit at the zoo. A year or two in those offices and I'd be flinging my poo at the glass just like the monkees

Did you turn into a cartoon of yourself when you walked through the door?

Steve said...

Now, now. Breda says we have to be polite.

Not "biased audiobook lady".

Lady sensitive to not offending the preferences of certain "mentally challenged within their political awareness" individuals who are preferential to being able to hear someone else read a book out loud to them.

Yeah. That.

Too long? Oh. Okay. How about:

ignorant dweeb

That's not a real building, is it? Please tell me it's not. Glass cages? And those chairs on the lower level look like a venus fly trap just waiting to swallow someone.

I swear, some architects really need to get a clue.

Why am I picturing Breda with blue face-paint and a Claymore?

To quote The Simpsons,

Moe: "It's po-mo."

*blank stare from Homer, Barney, et al.

Moe: "Post-modern."

*blank stare from Homer, Barney, et al.

Moe: "You know, crap for crap's sake."

Homer, Barney, et al (knowingly): "Ohhhh."

No kidding. You should see some of the houses that belong to the architecture professors here. It's like they've heard about "form follows function", but not only do they want nothing to do with it, but they decided to just throw function out the window completely.

And then I have to try and get an 80 pound stretcher in and out of these places when they get sick.

At first glance, I thought it was a swimming pool!

Tinman said...

Trust me. If the architects had a clue it would be to the wrong puzzle and yet they would defend it as visionary rather than keep looking.

The architect who designed that building must have just finished reading a Lovecraft novel.

Mr. Escher, you are home!

Where do they sequester the homeless?

Pray, with all your strength, that you don't get sent to a "How to Establish Your Library's Presence on Second Life- Facebook - Twitter - NoLongerRelevantSocialNetworkingSite"
Seminar.

Or worse yet, "Library 2.0 - Where Do We Go From Here?" Just kill me now.
