Two and a half years ago we moved out of our offices to a building even worse in need of renovation. They gutted our building down to bare walls and dirt and rebuilt it and today we moved back in. They even bought us new furniture, which means everything is terribly uniform. However, they didn't allow money for blinds and I can't read my computer screen when the sun comes in my window. I hung in my window some scarves I had had draped over the window frame in my temporary office, which were part of the decorating I did there to make it feel like my own, my safe space. The department chair just asked me what I have hanging in my window, dirty laundry?
