Hellacious Heat

The A/C was broken at work today (Why is it always freezing in offices every other day except the day of a massive heatwave) so everyone was suffering miserably. Any other sort of job, everyone wouldve just gone home. But the magazine has to come out, no matter how friggin' hot it is. The weird thing was the heat was making everybody punchy and unable to focus. It was like an office Christmas party, except in July and everyone was sober--just suffering from heatstroke. The only consolation was that our big boss's office was the hottest room in the place. (very proletariat) They also sprung for ice cream for everyone.

I'm not sure if it was related to the heat, but the building next door to my office caught on fire. THe entire roof was engulfed in flames as the poor firefighters had to clamor up 10 flights of stair in full gear to put it out.
