I admit it. I am jealous that MTV has a pool table and massage chairs in their lunch room...In fact, I'm jealous that they have a lunch room, one with a patio overlooking Times Square, no less.

But if you worked for MTV you would have to hang with all of those self absorbed musicians instead of cool, fun science fiction/fantasy artists! ;)

Huh. I suppose envy is subject to relativity. Because, I'm envious of your view.

Oh, the Flatiron is in a much MUCH better neighborhood. No doubt. I'd hate to work anywhere above 23rd street. But having someplace to eat that is a) not your desk, and b) doesn't cost a fortune is nice.

Years ago our higher-ups decided to put in a smoking room and that made me livid. Nothing against smokers but the message was basically: Let's make a room so smokers don't leave the building -- Let's NOT make a lunch room so that everyone stays at their desks and keeps working.

Sorry to hear you don't have a place to eat besides your work area.. That's pretty weak of the higher-ups. I'm curious though, how did you find this out about Mtv? haha.. were you a guest on TRL? ;)

Yeah, a Tor lunchroom would be pretty sweet, although the new Flatiron Beach ain't half bad (and there's WiFi). At least for the fall. . . .

True, sitting in your office to eat lunch is the pits. But so is eating your lunch in an office lunchroom. You need to get AWAY from work during your lunch - eat someplace non-work related. Relax. Blank your mind & think of nothing. People watch. Join a friend for lunch. Window-shop - thereby walking and getting some exercise.

Lunchtime is breaktime, with or without an actual lunch, as you choose.
