They've turned off the AC in the office again today. They've been screwing with the system for over a year now...You'd think they could get *something* worked out in that time! (My particular building isn't terribly large...and the nearby larger buildings in The Park are quite adequately controlled)

There's a thermostat on a nearby electrical conduit. The 'current temp' readout on it maxes out at 85 degrees. The needle is pegged past that. I wore a relatively heavy shirt, since last Friday they had the air going full tilt, and it was cold.

It's gonna be a long, sticky day :P
Current Mood: hothot

Go to Wal-Mart and buy a fan over lunch. It'll help. Our a/c semi-quit recently and so we have a pair of floor fans about -- they really did make it tolerable until it was fixed.

Ooh, you now have it as bad as we do. =P Or rather, as bad as we usually have it during the summer. This year's been tolerable. But yes, a fan does help. As does lots of cold water. Mmm, cold water.

I recommend cold beer.

...and/or margaritas.

Hmm...cold water...cold beer...margaritas...

Can I get away with mixing margaritas and cold, watery beer? ;)

I would suggest keeping the beer, water, and margaritas in separate glasses. Then drink them in a chaotic pattern.

Clima(c)tic changes
Sounds like a shirt removal excuse to me! Woo hoo!

Ahh, Abbott! Efficiency incarnate!

It's amazing, yes ;) This building wasn't built by Abbott, it was bought during expansion of the main Lake County site, and 'renovated' with great efficiency (hah). In addition to the time mentioned to replace the heating/cooling/ventilation, it also took them 7 months to re-tar the roof last year. During that time, it was normal to come into work to find a layer of roof crud over your desk. Oh, and they've evacuated the building 3 times since 2000 (2 floods, 1 gas leak).

I'm just glad we don't house any of the *real* nasty biological agents in this building. It's a lot tougher to sniff out a virus leak than a gas leak ;)
