I miss couches.

Back at my last job, we had a large room that had numerous couches, over stuffed chairs, small tables a and big ass HDTV with a Playstation attached to it. Mostly, the room was used as a place to have lunch and relax (and unfortunately, to announce layoffs). I mostly used it as a place to go sit down with a manual, O'Reilly book or printed source code.
Where I am now, there's no real comfortable place with a table, chair, and no one there to bother me. I have an office with a door, but a task chair is good for sitting at a computer, not hunkering down with the 1400+ page DHTML book. There's always someone coming by with a question, or a problem or another odd task that needs to be dealt with a.s.a.p.
