The afternoon tiredys jumped upon me, so I figured a walk to the convenience store from my office would be a good thing.... wake me up a bit. The afternoon is freaking beautiful, so a stroll would feel nice, and the caffeine and chocolate pick-me-up would help me through the monotony of the UBP review this afternoon.

I live in cubeville, like many of the rest of us nitwits. However, going outside makes me not want to come back inside. Our campus is really beautiful while very functional. We have a flower shop, 4 cafeterias, two coffee shops, a convenience store, a bank, a real estate office, a travel shop, a beautician, a dry clearners, tennis courts, two ball fields, a lake with walking trail, and a fitness center.

I will post a few pics just to show you what I mean. I just want to know if this is normal or excessive for large companies. The sad thing is that our customers never even get to see it, and if they did, they would think it unjust and that they are paying higher bills because of it. And no, I don't work for a University, even though I called it a campus.

Here are a few pics from my 11 minute round trip to get me a beverage and chocolate...

My place of employment has some kick-ass landscaping that would put yours to shame. Of course, our fitness center is dinky and we don't have a convenience store... but we do have nice walking paths, tons of flowerbeds, nicely trimmed hedges and blossoming trees of all kinds. Kind of makes the work worth it, if you ask me.

Can I thread hijack and whine about the $1500 landscaping bill I'm going to get to turn my mess of a yard into something nice?

2.5 servings * 110 =275 + 110 = 495

I'll be fine, thanks for the concern though. Not racing this year anyway... and I'm decently fit. No more dresses for me. I think I'll fatten up eating this stuff and wear a thong for 3000.

You say campus, I say compound! ;)

We have a basketball court outside that my buddies and I shoot on after lunch, and that's about it. I guess that's what we get for working at an assembly plant, while the corporate office a few miles up the road gets the pretty digs.
