Diary of a fire alarm

3:37am – Okay, that’s the fire alarm. Ah well, it’s Monday morning, they’ll just be testing it. They always test it on Mondays.
3:37:30am – Hmmm…. must be a long a test.
3:38am – Darn it, it sounds like a proper alarm. What time is it? 3:38? Blarg. Better get up, then…
3:39am – Argh. My clothes are all in the wash. My dressing gown will have to do.
3:40am – OK, I’m out. And it’s cold. Brrrrrr.
3:42am – Oh good, there’s a security guard going in to check it out. But he’s using the lift! That’s like soooo illegal!
3:45am – Hmmm, he must be doing a pretty thorough search.
3:50am – A very thorough search. Man it’s cold out here.
3:53am – This is getting silly. I could have got fully dressed by now.
3:55am – At last! Geez, I’m glad that’s over.
Of course, I’m showing my true geekiness by the fact that instead of going straight back to bed, I decided to check my email and write this blog entry first. Naturally, the real version of this would have had much more profanity in it, especially when you consider I was standing in near-freezing temperatures wearing a dressing gown and pyjamas, and the sheer bad timing of it all.
See you in the morning.
