Rave or relaxation? You decide.

"Bob" received a gift at Christmas time. The gift was a water fountain know, like for relaxation/meditation purposes. Personally, I can't imagine having something running water at my desk all day - mostly because running water makes me want to pee...and they frown on peeing at your desk at my work.

Anyway, the water fountain (is that what it's called?) broke. And it started making a lot of grinding noises, which apparently are not relaxing. So "Bob" went out and bought a new one. It looks like this:
In case you can't tell, that's an orb of power on top of the three tiered water fountain thingie. It's got fluorescent lights that pour out of the rotating orb - giving it an almost rave-like feel. I don't know if it came with a hit of acid or not, but it seems like having that next to my desk would make me want to only listen to Erasure. Which, I have to admit, I want to do pretty much all the time anyway.

Seriously...if you listen closely, you can hear "It's Raining Men." I'm just saying.

So in order to take a picture of the machine, I had to tell "Bob" that I wanted to have my own relaxation picture in my cube. And since "Bob" is so helpful, s/he was all "You should take a picture of Martin's rock garden too!" So I had to.

So here is Martin's rock garden:And now my deception is complete.

I have that rock garden on my desk too. And I'm not just copying MizFit.

Maybe I should get one. I could use more zen and peace in my life...and I don't think it'd make me want to pee as much as "Bob's" fountain.
