Today the group manager stormed into my office and told me to switch desks back to where I was in the summer. John left and so this is how it's gonna be now. New year, new* desk!
I made sure to get the information on the website switched so that everyone knows where to find me. I also moved John to the swanky alumni section of the website. The only real drawback of switching offices is that the new year has come, so my old wall calendar is only but a recyclable.
No longer will the patrons of the printer stumble into my office and see that the white board is a huge dada-esk comment on graduate work: it's been wiped clean! Yay!
