But all the visionary business gurus told us that the office was dead and that we'd all be working happily ever after from our homes.

I have good locks on my front and back doors, and my cat generally doesn't pounce on me out of nowhere.

I find it hard to believe that the people in TFA don't worry all the time, no matter where they do their work.

I picked up a cheap green bedsheet from Wal Mart and hung it behind my desk. Problem solved.

It works for me since my job is largely on me to get through stuff and if I have an issue, ping someone and get to it.  Been doing it almost five years.  But saying it's a blanket thing is disingenuous on a good day.

I have a cat sitting on the floor staring at me.  She's waiting for the laptop to go away so she can sleep in my lap.

I'm LESS paranoid because I know I won't have co-workers swing by and see me reading a book or reading Fark. I'm VPN'ed in on another machine, use this one for farking around. No paranoid feelings here (other than the cat staring into the back of my head).

Got an electric blanket to keep my feet warm. The cat loves it.

Wife uses a basket of towels to distract the cat. A towel on top of another towel pleases the cat.

Do you ever feel all alone?

Just turn of all the lights and put on a horror movie, and you will no longer feel like you are all by your lonely self.

I'd rather have an article about sassquatch.

OK, I admit that I googled sassquatch for spelling but instead I got.
