Working environment

So, they're refinishing the roof at work. I knew this wasn't exactly going to be pleasant, since, you know, I'm on the third floor, and there is no fourth floor, but so far it hasn't been too terrible. I mean, you don't exactly like to walk into work and see someone chopping at the roof with an axe, and the tar smell isn't exactly the best either, but you know. And then we have today...

I don't know what they're doing, to be honest. It sounds like they're rototilling, but I know that can't be it. Whatever big, nasty machine they're running, it's hellishly loud, and I can't even hear myself think! Thank goodness I spend most of today out of the office! Maybe they'll get done sanding or tilling or tearing up whatever it is they're tearing up, so tomorrow will actually be back to the pounding, chopping, and only occasional 500 lb weight dropping that I'm sort of used to.

In other news, in an effort to treat myself/take more time for myself, I am considering going for a manicure and pedicure every three months. Yes, it's girly. Oh well. Next up would be December, and I think I will get the electric blue nailpolish, if they still have it.

Yea Vanessa! Embrace your inner girly girl! Yes, you can still be tough and snowblow your own driveway, but no one says you can't do it with nicely manicured nails. Too bad about the roof thing. I *love* working in an old building. The gas leaks, backed up sewer pipes and (several times) yearly evacuations of the building are GREAT. Can you hear the sarcasm?
