Worried that I might be asked to work late, I elected to drive in to work today. Considering that it is, for other people, a holiday, the traffic was so exceptionally light that I arrived at the building an hour and a half early. So early, in fact, that the entire building was still running on half power leaving strange dark places in the parking structure and the hallways, and an eerie silence where the rumble of the climate control system normally filled the space.

I decided it would not be too inappropriate to get a cup of coffee elsewhere for forty minutes or so before going upstairs. I walked to a nearby Coffee Bean And Tea Leaf and set up my laptop in preparation of playing the role of Coffeeshop-Writer.

I putzed around for about half an hour tinkering with this and that on a few projects. My screenwriting software siezed up on me mid scene. I waited fifteen minutes for it to get its act together then decided to cut my losses and work on something else.

Ahh well.

By the time I left, I was so overcranked on caffeine that I needed a brisk run around the block and a cold shower, but instead I headed to the office where, for reasons unknown, someone had brought pie. So the day was off to a good start.
