Moved to the Lounge so that everyone can enjoy

Wow, what a surprise! Your coworkers took a lot of time to create this! Look at that castle! Those are really nice fish hanging from the ceiling also. (that one on the door looks a little scary, lol!)

The screen saver on the computer looks aquarium-related too! What nice coworkers you have to do this for you!

Hee hee oops....sorry to place on the wrong forum. I guess I got excited. Thanks for moving it.

It was amazing. You can't tell from the pic, but they even covered the windows with blue paper. All that stuff on the floor is shells and river rocks and the "castle" is a work table. The final effect looked exactly like an aquarium. There were even bubbling sound effects.

This was actually a little while back, but I still have fish hanging from the ceiling three months later.

They are the best coworkers anyone could ever ask for. And I guess they are aware of my addiction, er, hobby. No ACTUAL fish tank yet in the office, but that will probably have to be the next step.

Oh, that's what the blue paper is - so it looks like water, lol! I thought it was a temporary or empty cubicle that they decorated for you so you wouldn't see them doing it. So if they decorated your workspace, they had to come in pretty early so you wouldn't catch them!

How nice! You should bring in a box of donuts for them

Sorry, your office is severely overstocked



Your coworkers did a fantastic job decorating! I'm surprised you don't have a tank in there - you could easily fit a 55 gal!!

That is so cool of them to do for you. It must have taken them a long time to put that together. Obviously someone in your office is very crafty.

That is so cool, obviously your coworkers appreciate you a lot. That must have taken some time to set up and do.

That is amazing!! I'm also interested in knowing how long it took to set up and how long did it take to clean up the floor?

LOL...my office is overstocked! I guess that explains the fish lying in the corner that fell from the ceiling. The floor did take a while but is now clean, except for the occasional dropping fish.

They worked on it for at least a week, I am told. They said they were all coloring fishes constantly, and when i walked down the hall they would shove them under the desks!

All of the wonderful fish colorers have been donuted. And...we are working on a plan for the next birthday office.

Thanks, everyone, for sharing this with me. I just had to show it to other people who would appreciate it as much as I did.
