Ruby Tuesday: Office Building

I had a job interview Monday morning. I was a bit nervous and worried that I wouldn't find the building. I had to laugh when I pulled into the parking lot.

My very first thought was ...


This is perfect for Ruby Tuesday!

and of course I had my camera with me.






Go here for more RED

Linda said...

What a unique design! I love the way they make it pop with all that red, too!

napaboaniya said...

Best wishes for the interview!
I hope you'll get the job :)

Happy 2009 in advance :)

Jackie said...

But how did you do in the interview? - hope it went well and they saw and recognised your talents.

Dianne said...

kay - thanks :)

linda - it is a pretty building, I love the rounded edges and the huge windows

napaboaniya - thank you so much. happy new year to you too :)

jackie - I have no feel for the interiew at all. the guy was very young and very odd, at one point I thought he was a bit drunk or high!!

Pia K said...

Ha, ha, aren't we weird people thinking about RT posts all the time...;)

Hope the interview went well and that both you and they would like you to get the job, now wouldn't that be a neat way to start the new year! Happy New Year from Sweden:)

pink dogwood said...

that's hilarious. Yesterday I rolled up the placemats after dinner and I placed them on the counter I thought - that would make a good picture on my photo blog. I guess it could have qualified for ruby tuesday as it is red.


good luck with your job search.

Kerri said...

Love that RED on the building! PERFECT!!

Hope the job interview went well!!

Robin said...

Very cool atrium. I'll bet you rocked the interview after that one :).

Cherie said...

You and Craig are on the same wavelength, turning crisis into art. ;) Happy New Year!

maryt/theteach said...

Of course you had your camera - Never, never go anywhere without your camera! Oh and I think we're Psychicly?, psychically? connected... or maybe you were right, psychotically? connected?

Love the RED! Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Ivanhoe said...

Oooh, that is pretty building. Good luck with your job search, Dianne :o)

Dianne said...

pia - thanks for the kind wishes!

pink - it's wonderful to see photo ops everywhere - it has really added to the way I look at things :)

kerri - it is a really cool building, thanks for good wishes - I won't know until next week

robin - the security guard wouldn't allow photos inside, it was really pretty
thanks :)

cherie - it's what keeps me almost sane
I'd love to be on CF's wavelength - if ya know what I mean and of course you do ;)

mary - I knew you'd appreciate that! lol

ivanhoe - it is! it has such a nice feel about it as well.
thanks !!

I like the red outlining; it gives the building a unique quality.

Felisol said...

Hello Dianne,
I agree. I always seems to find motives when I am out. That's why I use my cellphone. maybe i should advance to abetter sharp shooter.

The architects have done a lot with a little red on that building.
That's the way red functions, I've been made aware of these Ruby Tuesdays.
Lots of good chi there.
Hope you got the job!!
A Happy New Year from Felisol

Olga said...

What a great coincidence, and hopefully a good luck charm! Glad you had your camera with you.

Good luck on the job!

splummer said...

ellen b said...

Hello Dianne! I'm glad they decided on some red splashes to make this building more interesting. My camera has become one of those permanent objects about my person :0)
Happy New Year!!

laura said...

Great Ruby Tuesday post!!

ilanadavita said...

Nice building; perfect choice for RT.

Dianne said...

desert - it definitely stands out in an area full of very boring office complexes

felisol - very good chi indeed :)
thanks for all the good wishes - a very Happy New Year to you :)

olga - It's gotten to where I'm lost if I don't have it with me
Happy New Year

sherrie - thanks!! I wish you and yours a great New Year too!

ellen - I actually feel different if I leave home without it :)

laura - thanks!!

ilanadavita - it was a great RT coincidence :)

Mojo said...

I see Ruby Tuesday shots everywhere I go. And Blue Monday and Monochrome Monday and Watery Wednesday and... well, you get the idea.

One of the greatest things about playing all these is that it teaches us to look around and see what there is to see. Even -- or maybe especially the things that most people miss.

It's a great way to live, na?

haleyhughes said...

When I was features editor at my local newspaper, people used to ask where I got my story ideas. Truth is, it wasn't difficult. Once you train yourself to start looking, you see ideas all over the place. Much like Ruby Tuesday. :)

I'm guessing you were early for your interview since you had time to take photos. I hope the interview went well.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Yes, of COuRSE you had your camera! Is there any other way to leave home? LOL

storyteller said...

Excellent example of WHY we need to have our cameras with us at all times. This is a very 'kewl' looking building! Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,

Patti said...

Tee hee! I woulda thunk the same thing, Dianne.
Great Ruby Tuesday find!

Thanks for visiting me today ~ I'm so far behind with my RT visiting.

I hope the job interview went well for you.

M.Kate said...

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

What a great Ruby post. Of course the great photo op helped you ace the interview. Cheerful is always good. And I thoroughly enjoyed every photo on the page. Nana's angel is so sweet, and the story also. Thanks for visiting my blog; I sure enjoyed yours.

ramblingwoods said...

Oh perfect...sorry you didn't get a better read on the interview...

Dianne said...

mojo - it is a wonderful way to live!

haleyhughes - I see posts and photo ops everywhere! as mojo said it's a great way to live :)

your EG - of course there isn't! :)

storyteller - glad you liked the photos, thanks :)

patti - you can join me and Mary - we've decided we're 'psychotically' connected -

m.kate = all good things for you in 2009!

Dianne said...

dot - thanks, I won't know about the job for a week or so

norm - thank you!! all the best for you too :)

gattina - it was! a RT post just jumped out in front of me lol

magiceye - thanks. I hope 2009 is a grand old year for us all :)

sara - thanks so much for all the kind words!! I'm glad you liked all my photos - especially Nana's angel :)

rambling - thanks!! it's OK, I think in this economy and at this time of year all the interviewers are exhausted and worried about their own jobs. I used to do HR stuff so I know what the other side of the desk can be like.

Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

HAPPY & BLISSFUL NEW YEAR to you & your fam...

Raven said...

What a cool building! Hope you get the job!

Dianne said...

richie's - all good things for you too!!

thanks !

Pagan Sphinx said...

Very cool building and these are so sharp and clear! Beautiful for RT!

Terry said...

Oh Dianne!
It WAS perfect for Ruby Tuesday and you had your camera with you and now all of us, your buddies can enjoy the pictures!
Oh I just love all of the glass. So many windows!
I would hate to work in a place that didn't have windows, like a factory. I have always longed for a window over my kitchen sink but in all of my 36 years of marriage and after living in five houses, I have never had the privilege.
Well Happy New Year dear new friend and I will be talking at you next year!!
Love Terry

magiceye said...

!!!! WISH YOU AND YOURS A SUPER 2009 !!!!

Bob-kat said...

I like the last shot in particular - it's the juxtaposition of the tree with the man made building :)

Deb said...

Happy New Year! Sending huge wishes for a 2009 that is filled with happiness, good health, success in all that you do and many fun adventures! Celebrate!
