No one understands what we do...Here's the first few lines of the book description...

"When Adeline Parker decides to celebrate landing a coveted internship at one of Chicago’s most prestigious architectural firms by indulging in a brutally dark and handsome man, she gets more than she bargained for...."

You can figure out where it goes from there. I bet they don't even mention bathroom details or code research.

Maybe they understand perfectly well what we should be doing.

Maybe not.

Also, if you want a pretty decent novel about the life of an architect, check this book out:

'Adeline, full of passion, dragged her brutally dark man into the men's room, too excited to make it home, and exclaimed 'i'm so excited the ADA was revised to allow a single urinal to be at a decent height.  17" just isn't enough'

that was an architect double-entendre.  think i have a future as an architect romance novelist?

Architectural novelist may be more lucrative that architectural technologist.

There are one hundred pages of reviews of the book on that site....I read about eight of them. Yikes.

curtkram your comment is perfect and far more clever than all of the 100 reviews on that page put together.
