What a day! I met up with a date this afternoon and we walked around the Arboretum then got dinner. I'd invited to him to some friends' pumpkin carving party so we headed off to that. I got to hold their baby (so cute, and soft), carve my pumpkin, and see friends.
I got home around 10pm ready to relax and read for a while. Except I heard water dripping while waiting for the elevator...it was raining in the laundry room! I called building maintenance, walked in my door, and the fire alarm went off. I didn't even have a chance to fire up my jack o' lantern :( Heading down the stairs I noticed that half the fourth floor was flooded and water was literally raining down the stairwell. I'm so glad I live above this!!! The fire department arrived just as I was leaving.
So I headed to a local restaurant, got a drink and hung out with the friendly staff. Then headed back home to a no-longer-dripping building. Apparently someone fell, broke their toilet, and didn't notice for a few hours. Now I'm ready to read some, return a couple emails, and head to bed.
