Do you believe?
Today during a meeting at work (as an aside about meetings, I like to keep track of the corporate buzz words, this meeting's phrase was "geographic hot teams") my daydreaming was brought quickly to a halt and talk abruptly stopped when we all heard BOOOOOM BABOOM Boom boom—as the ceiling vibrated and the doors of our conference room shook loudly. My honest to goodness first thought was "reindeer?" So it's official, I have the Christmas spirit.

What I said out loud though was "it sounds like something big just rolled across the roof." Sure enough one of our HUGE skylights detatched (there is a wind advisory today, but it's not like a hurricane or anything) and rolled across the roof, taking pieces of the roof with it and leaving our library exposed to the elements. Isn't that exciting? PAGE: "Gus to the Library, with a ladder and your hip waders please."

Good thing noone was standing in the library... "Hey Judy, can you find me that book on....Judy? JUUUUUDY!" As Judy goes flying through the window and and into the great blue yonder, tightly clutching the 2004 Restraint Systems Encyclopedia.

And you wonder how I can look forward to work each day?

    One time when I was working concession at a drive-in, a twister came through and torn the whole place up.
    We were showing the movie "The Shining" that night (which was kind of ironic) and we had no warning at all.
    The fierce wind literally tore the screen into dangerous shards of flying debris.
    People were screaming and running for cover.
    Helen Hunt and I scrambled into the maintenence pit of a nearby mechanic's shop and barely missed getting crushed by this car that came crashing down through the roof.
    Man, that was something I'll never forget.
