I am lucky enough to work in a brand-new state-of-the-art library. It just opened in August 2006 and has all the latest "green" technology. In our safety training, I found out that this building is the safest one on campus to be in if there is an earthquake. (and I now live in earthquake country---in Texas I just had to worry about tornadoes) Well, the fancy features aren't working for me today. It is getting really hot. We have turned off all the lights and pulled the shades trying to cool the building down. But I am starting to sweat.
I was used to this kind of thing at the public library. It would be 95 degrees INSIDE the building and we would continue to slog along, draped over the circulation desk like limp dishrags.
Global warming can be a real b****.
The good news is that I am leaving early tonight to go to the POLICE concert. I can hardly wait.
