“A woman must have money
and a room of her own…”

I only have one more full day in my office until I move into the department chair’s space. As part of my negotiations, I requested to keep my old office so I’ll still be able to visit it although it won’t be quite the same. I’ll end up moving back here in a year if all goes well.
I love my office but it certainly did not look like this when I moved into it. It was literally three shades of tan. Apparently the past painters decided it was simply better to paint around the furniture. Don’t get me wrong, it is impossible to move my desk but the bookshelves?!? Geez. I guess they just didn’t want to move books.
|Books organized by subject & some decorative little friends. I teach Adolescent Literature and Vampire Literature courses along with a few others on rotation. The Twilight series is part of the former not the latter!|

The summer before last I asked our current chair if I could paint my office. She said yes as long as I bought the paint. Bad economy… budget cuts, etc. I figured that since I was buying that I was going to do it up right. In the store, I *thought* that I selected a nice mauve. You know, not too jazzy but still a bit of pizzazz. However, paint always looks a little different on the walls in different lighting. To my surprise, it turned out to be Unicorn Princess Purple!
What goes with Unicorn Princess Purple? Bats!
What goes with Bats? Some Abigail Larson artwork! And knickknacks!
My door has actually made it quite easy for students to find. On campus, directions to my office include, "Look for the bat!"
