Okay, so I know that the air inside an office building can suck the moisture out of the human body faster than a thirty vampire* but there are a LOT of people drinking high quality H20 in my office. But aside from the quantity I couldn't help but notice the various vessels from which people drink.
Personally, I drink out of a tricked out Nalgeen bottle. It's green with a black neoprene sleeve which prevents the condensation from puddling all over my desk and even has a skull splash guard so I don't spill water all down myself.
Okay, I know. That is possibly the smallest picture for what I am talking about, but I am sure you get my drift...
Lot's of people in my office, especially the "younger" crowd (i.e. people under 35) seem to haul Nalgenes around. I use the word "haul" because when they are full these things weigh a god-dang-ton.
Surprisingly no one has really jumped on the aluminum bottle bandwagon that seems so popular lately. Perhaps for the same reason I haven't, which is I own about a dozen water bottles and can't justify purchasing a new $25 dollar one just because they have a sweet graphic design created by some third world art student.
The really impressive people are the ones that drink water out of good old fashioned glasses. I stare in wonder as they fill their glasses to the top and carry them back to their desks, never spilling a drop. Quite often they are carrying a glass of water in one hand and a steaming hot cup of coffee in the other. This balancing act is like something out of a circus. If I had a box of popcorn and a giant thing of cotton candy I would be in heaven.
Personally I would dump the water all over myself before I even got 4 feet from the lunchroom which is why I use the bottle that I do.

P.S. - I extended the date for the poll about my friend Stubbs getting a mullet. Why? Because I want to see if I can get 100 people to confirm that she should rock the business in the front party in the back look... so tell your friends and family that I need votes.
* Oh yeah, I made a vampire reference. They are so trendy right now I couldn't help myself. Did you know that some of them even sparkle???
