I'm not one for foo-foo drinks, but will take this under consideration. I will resist for as long as I am able, which might not be long, considering my surroundings.
Using my midwestern know-how, I did build what I thought was a very sturdy and impenetrable beer can fort (to fortify the small wall that lets any passers-by know "this is my desk, not yours") on and around the desk, but it really didn't look right (as you implied with umbrella drinks) and my fiancee dismantled it while I was napping next to the pool which proved it quite penetrable.
I have notices certain difficulties with my new locale. Namely, when you ask about internet service or TV or phone, they just laugh. I actually had an AT&T salesperson say "I don't want to sell you any services because you will just come back here and yell at me." She/he (it is, on occasion, hard to make such fine distinctions here) added "don't tell my boss I said that, because I will get fired."
