Map Attack!Posted: May 17, 2012
Other title options for this post included, “Na-na, na-na, na-na, na-na MAP WALL” (like the theme song to the Batman TV show) and from Arrested Development, “The Blue Part is clearly land.”
Despite my terrible choice in headlines, the map wall has made a comeback! Not in the dining room, like I initially planned, but instead in the new office.
As of now, the maps have not been permanently affixed to the wall via wallpaper paste or Mod Podge; I wanted to see how much I liked them there first. But I’m thinking it’s going to be a permanent fix for a couple of reasons.
1) It is undeniably awesome looking.
2) The office is the perfect place for a map wall because, for us, the office is the room we visit to get some work done and to appear intelligent and studious, and everyone automatically looks and feels smarter standing in front of a map. “Oh me? What am I doing? I’m just committing some political geography to memory. It’s sort of my thing. Go ahead, ask me about the largest river in Cambodia. I can tell you all about it.”
I’m definitely feeling it in here. I know there are others who agree with me. Behold other humanoids who also enjoy a little map with their office.
Muah ha ha, yet another project crossed off the to-do list. I love our house.
