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. glenn5 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 glenn5 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.

    I’m glad you’re feeling a bit better. I am, too, despite running myself ragged with errands yesterday.

    Lovely pix!

    OMG! You work in a building designed by MC Escher! Stairs like that always make me think of that painting.

    What a cool place to work! Much more interesting than cubeville.

    The classiness quite suits you. I am glad that your workplace is one that will bring you up rather than down.

    I love the two-headed calf 😉

    Hooray for faux wooden paneling! That’s exactly the kind I’ve got in my Basement / Writing Room. I find it very soothing. 😀

    Minor point, but I think she’s Miss Freedom, not Lady Freedom.

  8. I don’t know which is scarier, the brave at the end of the hall or the two-headed calf! Glad you’re enjoying your tenure in legi-land.
    I’m amazed at how much writing you’re still managing with a day job, too. Although is my official rabbit, you probably qualify as kangaroo: also really big ears, but taking gigantic leaps all the time.

      As long as the ears are big, that’s the important thing .

      And yah, I’ve got plenty of free time right now to crank out words and catch up on my other editorial obligations, but I have been duly warned that things get a lot more stressful and hopping when the legislature is in session come January.

      • Rabbits and kangaroos

        Well, when things get “hopping” in January, you’ll be ready with your super-kangaroo abilities and master hamster-juggling acumen, although it wouldn’t hurt to take a dip in some cosmic sludge before then. I have every confidence in your survival potential even without the sludge dip, however.

  9. Pretty office! You must love going to work in the morning.
