Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

alarm! alarm!

I was woken up this morning (before 7 am) to the horrible screeching of the building's fire alarm (yes, the building's not my apartment's). It's a pretty bad way to wake up. I was about to go down and see what was happening when it stopped. This has been a problem once before in the past. Needless to say, I couldn't go back to sleep, and it took me a while to get the sound out of my head and to quell a rising headache. Then I got to work, write a bit, etc.

A few minutes back I was right "in the zone" and the alarm went off again. Damn. I went down. "They are fixing it". Right. Then it stopped.

About 10 minutes ago it started up again and they are stopping it and starting it intermittently as they try to fix it. It's impossible to concentrate. If this keeps up, I'll go for a walk. And hopefully they'll get it fixed for the rest of the day at least, so I can get some work done!

Ah, the wonders of technology.

Later: The Alarm stopped. I went out for a walk anyway. Brrr it's cold. says "5 C, feels like -1 C". I believe it. Plus, the weather's crazy, there's very strong winds so whole stormfronts move in and out of sight within minutes (I'm not exaggerating). When I got back the alarm started up again. Still fixing it, it seems, and we building-dwellers can do nothing but wait (and complain :)).
