We've moved into our new space, in lovely Woburn, in the shadow of the Jell-O™ factory. One day, after agreeing on the lease but before moving in, we were leaving the new office when we were hit with a... smell. Only not just a smell, but a Smell.
"Uh, what's that?"
"I don't know, I've never smelled that before."
"Is it going to be like this all the time?"
"Maybe that's why we scored such good rent."
Turns out, the Smell is not an everyday occurrence, thank goodness. It's the odor of gelatin making or, more specifically, part of the gelatin-making process known as rendering. Let's not go there.
Fortunately, the Smell does not permeate the building, and only happens once in a while. The trade-off is that we get the other gelatin scents on alternate days. So far, Strawberry day has been the best.
So we're slowly getting unpacked and back to business. Meeting with our web guy, Paul, this week to finally get ourselves really moving on the long overdue new web site. We'll keep you posted!
