Virtual Office View: Gaylord National Convention Center


I'm at the Gaylord National for the Blogalicious conference and found a very cozy chaise to park myself in-between sessions.

Pros

Comfy

Quiet

 

Cons

People I know walk by and I'm easily tempted to stop them and start a conversation

I'm so comfortable I may nap

Home Office FAIL: Careful Where You Rest Your Phone

Like many of you who have had to set up a home office in a spare bedroom, I lack a lot of clear table space.

While I'm neurotic about where I place my coffee and water, sometimes my printer has to act as an end table for things like my iPad or iPhone. Except that today I learned that even THAT can be dangerous.

Today my printer tried to eat my iPhone!

Gee, what could possibly be causing this paper jam?

My first thought?

Oh GOD my beloved PHONE! I panicked as I tried to wiggle the phone out of the mouth of the printer. Was it broken, or worse, dead? Was I breaking it by trying to remove it? My thoughts kept spinning to that tool, the Jaws of Life, that EMS people use to peel away car tops and get to injured people stuck in cars.

Then I calmed down, tugged a little harder, and it popped out.

You will be happy to know both the phone and printer still work.

And, I'm shopping for a proper end table.

Virtual Office View: Panera

 

This is the place I come when I just need to get out of the house for a few hours.

Pros
Good coffee (and food)
Comfy booths with high sides feel a little like a cubical but cozier


Cons
Can get crowded and they don't have a lot of outlets
Distractions include food and people watching
Table to chair height not ergonomically designed and my carpal tunnel kicks in after a while
