blogger outage, fire alarms, congestion

I really think the new radio commercial for Canadian Blood Services is cute. I’ve always wanted to donate, my dad had always for years and years. I just like the part at the end of the ad where the dude is like, we’re actually quite nice and ….we have cookies 😀 mm cookies.

John is still out with sinus pain/head cold type things. I stopped at Spice Alley yesterday to get nummy dinner hot spicy things – burn that right outta there – hope he gets better soon since he’s still got foreign health care but nothing valid here so it’s about 100 bucks a pop at the clinic.

Tomorrow the Canucks play in New Jersey. Meanwhile tonight, Messier (one of my least fave players…especially during his stint here in Vancity) is getting his number retired to the rafters at MSG.

There was a fire alarm going off in our building today. Everyone walked downstairs and went to Starbucks until we got the ‘all clear’. It was a pleasant 15 minute interruption to the workday — seeing as how there was no serious issue/no one was hurt. Although walking down all those flights of stairs made me a wee bit dizzy. Remind me that I don’t start work until 11:00am tomorrow.

Advance voting for the election starts this weekend. The campaigns are smutting up and really getting dirty during this last stretch. I still don’t know whether I’m voting for the person or the party. but also… i still haven’t found out what was up with the fireworks last night – oh well.

EDIT: there was just another fire alarm. many flights of stairs + 3 inch stilettos = ugh….

    is your fire alarm ear-piercing like ours? ours is like all high-tech…it’s so freakin loud…you can’t think or move…it just makes you want to curl up into a ball and think of your happy place.

    ah nothing motivates ppl out of a building like bleeding ears

    yes it’s horrible and comes over the loudspeaker. best part is – the second alarm was about something happening on the 3rd floor, there was even smoke. but when we were out on the street looking up at the building, there was a dude sitting at his desk on the third floor (ignoring the alarm) eating his breakfast and sippin a coffee :-
