Capitol building pix: I work here!

Feeling better, largely due to an uninterrupted intake of Sudafed, I suspect. Thankfully, Hobkin hasn't evidenced any more signs of feeling ucky.

I've mentioned before how much I love the building I now work in, the Georgia Capitol building. terracinque and I went sightseeing on the 4th floor during our lunch hour on Friday, and I took pictures. The 4th floor houses a natural history/Georgia history museum, so in addition to being a beautiful feat of architecture, it also has on display some oddities and curiosities, including a two-headed calf.


These are the stairs I take every day to get to my office. Note the bust of James E. Oglethorpe in the lower left corner.


Another picture of the stairs to better spotlight the gorgeous lamps.



I really love the lights in the Capitol. Here's one of the lamps adorning the side stairs that lead to my office.


And a wall light fixture. Pretty!



Views from the atrium



I just love how NOT corporate the furniture is. Everything in the Capitol is seeped in classic elegance.



And here's where I work. I find the faux wooden paneling charming. So much nicer than the corporate cubicle walls that adorned my old day job, but terracinque rolls his eyes and mocks my delight in it, to which I say, "Tbttth!"



Left: A smaller version of Lady Miss Freedom, the statue adorning the gold dome outside. Right: A Native American statue at the end of the hall, the perfect place to spook someone working late.


And, as promised, the two-headed calf:



   

Writing Stuff

New Words/Editing:
- Working on a polish and spit-shine of the story for lynnejamneck's Lesbian Sleuth anthology.
- Shaking out and dusting off the collaboration story I'm doing with mtrimm1, who has every right to lunge at me with spork bared whenever we meet in person for how long I've taken on this project. Agh, I suck.
