Amazon was running out of space a couple years ago and leased out a nearby building — Blanchard Plaza. It was built in the 1980’s and it felt that way when looking through it before the remodel. It was all decorated in the bland neutral-brown carpets and off-whites that are so inoffensive… after we were done it’s full of colors.

As the remodel went through, the building took on a movie-themed look. We have romantic comedies on one floor, sci-fi on another. Westerns and all sorts of others.

I’m on the 13th floor. Appropriately our theme is horror.


And yes, we have a 13th floor. Between 12 and 14 is the number 13, which is missing from far too many buildings, planes, and everything else.

And the Exit sign points to my new team. :-)
