North Side, South Side

April 1, 2004

Today I have to haul the contents of my cube out to the South Side ("Region A"). My boss has been put in charge of three guys over there, since their boss is leaving on disability, so he's transferring over. It's easier to make room for me there than for three people over here, so off I go.

Region A doesn't look too good; it's in what appears to be an old warehouse, and the company's been trying to sell the building for a couple years now. The cubes there are a bit smaller than the one I'm currently in, but I don't have a lot of stuff anyway so it's not a big deal. It's a good thing I'm not claustrophobic though. A big upside of the move is the parking. Instead of paying $5.25 a day here (and that's after the value-card discount), parking there is free for a monthly savings of $100-$115. I'll also have a couple other programmers there to ping when I need help, and that's always nice.

And since it's on the South Side, there will be plenty of restaurants to tempt me away from my diet look into for occasional Atkins-friendly meals.
