Building Evacuation
We're having a building evacuation drill today (right now, in fact). However, we don't have to congregate at our designated spots; they're just trying to see how quickly they can empty the building, or something like that. Just now I heard from someone that they're doing it floor-by-floor, emptying one floor completely then letting that floor back in. I've only heard 2 groups of people coming down the stairs (floors 22 and 21) so far, and I haven't heard anyone in a while. I'm on 11. It will probably be a while.

The book sale here starts at 10:45. I seriously doubt the evacuation will be done by then. Going to be a slow day, I think. And yesterday before I left, the IT guy came by and said I should be able to print to the printer that is close to me. I tried this morning, and it didn't work again. So, it looks like I'll be using the printer 4 floors down. I don't really want to send anything there right now, since I don't want to leave stuff there, cluttering things up for other people. So, I sit here writing this entry. Hey, maybe I can catch up on some Jotto puzzle solutions.

That seems useless. You can't get an estimate of how long it would take to evacuate the building unless you have everybody tripping over each other fighting down the stairs.

They have books. They're selling them.

I think it' the Trade division. $2 for hardbacks and $1 for paperbacks. I'll see if I can find anything interesting.

is it wrong that that's the only reason i'm coming into the office today?
(well, that, and i just found out last night that i'm missing a recipe, so i was planning to go to the library and check out the book it came from again, only it's not here, so i have to go to copley to get it anyway.)
