Welcome to my Locker Cube

I have a pole in my cube. Only recently have I learned how incredibly useful this pole is. Large binder clips become hooks for hanging my rain gear and pannier cover. Magnetic clamps hold my drying socks.1Okay. I admit it. I hung the wet socks there only for the photo. Now the socks are back in my pannier. I’d hang my gloves there, but I have them on the back shelf, drying in the draft of the nearby ceiling vent. I lean my pannier against the pole and place my drying shoes near its base.

Now I just need to figure out how to put shelves between the I-beam’s flanges.

I feel sorry for those who don’t have such a useful pole in their cube.

My Rental Car: A Nissan Cube

A brand new Nissan Cube greeted me as I stepped off the shuttle bus. I’ll return it later today with less than 300 miles on the odometer.

These little cars, with their wheels pushed out to the corners, are a kick to drive. Even with my height, the headroom is incredible and I can see under the rear-view mirror. I hate when the mirror is so low that I can’t see cross traffic at an intersection.

I like the driver’s cup holder to the left of the steering wheel; I can easily put my white mocha in the cupholder before I get in the car.

This car is worthy of a shot in front of the “bed and breakfast.”


Though it’s no 350Z. ;-)

Settling In

My cube move is done. I’ve unpacked all my boxes, received my surge suppressor, and cleaned my white board.

My cube feels all shiny and new.

By the way, the picture shows a cube “decorated” for its owner’s return from sabbatical.
