washed out

The phone woke me at 1am. It was the security company telling me the fire alarm at the office was going off. great. I arrived at the office just after the fire brigade. I let them in and they charged all over the place looking for the fire. Then the Gov turned up, had one sniff, and told the men to pack up and go back to the shop. False Alarm.

2am I woke up with the runs, and ran to the toilet. Might have been a shock reaction, I don't know, but it was bloody annoying.

3am I woke with the walks - like the runs only less urgent.

5am The phone woke me again. That fucking fire alame was off again. So once again I drove across town to the office to check it out. Another false alarm. I let the security know and phoned the fire station to tell them to stay in bed.

I woke rather later than than I should have, and fell out of bed. I had a headache across the bridge of my nose and felt like crap - not exactly ill, just... blagh

Halfway through my second asprin at the office th fire alarm went off. Then the security company rang to let me know it was going off.

"Mr Whitton? It's XXX Security here to report... What's that noise?"

"IT'S THE FUCKING FIRE ALARM!"

"WHAT?"

"WHAT?"

<enters code, alarm stops> "IT'S THE it's the fire alarm again."

"Oh. I suppose there's no point telling you the fire alarm is going off again."

"No. Not much point really."

So now I'm waiting for the alarm tech to turn up, chewing asprin, and feeling like crap.

Where In The US

Apparently I should live in

Astoria, Oregon
Hagerstown, Maryland
Morganton, North Carolina
St. Helens, Oregon
Salisbury, Maryland

...if I want to live in the US, and if I actually took the quiz suggested by mactavish

All these towns have more than twice Dubbo's rainfall, and snow.
