I Love Cloudy Days

Someone thought it was a brilliant idea to install skylights in our office. It was supposed to be some half assed green measure to save on lighting. "Look! We use natural lighting and have reduced our carbon footprint!" The skylights look really cool. In the morning or at night.  But on sunny days, blinding rays of afternoon sun shoot in directly at your eyes, which makes it damn near impossible to look at your computer screen. 

Someone else came up with the idea of setting up an umbrella to shield him from the sun. It looked so dorky, but it worked. You still get glare but it's more bearable. I've never paid much attention to the earth's axis, but after 5 years here I know when I'm going to get blinded at which time of day during certain parts of the year.  (March 20, 2:17 pm - popping open umbrella)

If it's bad luck, I'm cursed.

That's so cool. I'd love to see a picture of your office on a sunny day.

We have flourescent light's here at the place I work. I agree with you 100%! THEY SUCK! Especially in the morning...UGH!<br />

And to all of the people out there who don't have gray hairs yet, too bad for you lol Us people who have a few gray hairs are doing just fine...~*GrOoVy*~ even :-)

Gray can be very distinguished and sharp. There are also plenty of sexy gray haired women in the world. But that's a story for another group.

No way! I like my grey hairs! They are sexy and beautiful! Dammit!

At least you have hair :)<br />

Just color it, as a woman, no one thinks twice when you dye it.

Oh don't get me started on flourescent lights. They show all your grey hairs. Worst invention ever. Right after skylights.

LOL you are funny. Wear sunglasses.
