Time:01:44 pm
A water main broke outside our office yesterday. It is a Big Deal.

This morning, the road to my office is partially swallowed up by something that looks like a sink hole from the erosion.

My building has no water. I will not make the mistake of entering the ladies room a second time (I was looking for paper towels... spilled coffee... irreplaceable spilled coffee). The latrines at Transformus were more pleasant. A LOT more pleasant. Come on, folks, if you know there is no water and you have to go that badly, get in the car and drive to a place where the toilets actually work.

In the process of fixing the water, the workers seem to have cut our phone lines.

I am waiting for the air conditioning to grind to a halt. It does it often enough to expect that it will happen today. Mostly because I am wearing a very warm sweater.

I'm telecommuting tomorrow. If we still have internet...

I got a package of amazingness today!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is unspeakably cool, and I didn't even know such a book existed. I really love it, and I am humbled and very touched that you would want me to have it.

Thanks. I feel loved. :)

That's crazy. When our building was out at my old job, the building owner/management made everyone close for the day.
