- lunch at lui lui courtesy of the boss. chicken jalfrezi? bailey's cheesecake? mmmmm.
- afternoon reverie punctuated by testing of the INCREDIBLY. LOUD. NEW. FIRE. ALARMS. the testing was apparently successful, as was complete liquefication of my brain.
- surprisingly/ironically/awesomely unrelated to the fire alarms, a car caught FIRE in the parking lot today. my boss walked by and said, "i guess there's a car on fire in the client parking lot, i have to go out and check on it." i waited for perhaps three seconds before, um, following him outside? duh? you tell me there's a car on fire outside and expect me to not RUN OUTSIDE IMMEDIATELY? the hood was entirely en fuego. kind of awesome [does that make me a pyro?]. fire truck came out and everything. also kind of awesome. and no one was hurt, so all in all awesomeness. um, except perhaps for the owner of the car. oops.

Very funny random story, mdog. I once returned from a flight to Chicago to see a completely charred car in the long term blue lot at Port Columbus. Fortunately, it was not mine. But it was so bizarre, sitting there by itself at a cost of $6 a day. I think the person at the gate told me that someone had mixed the wires when jump starting a car, but I'm not positive. ;o)

I would not have politely waited the three seconds. I would have pushed my way past him to see the conflagration.
