Ica Machine Still Down

When I was little, it wasn't easy to cool down in the summer because we were so poor. But with a little ingenuity, my mom would make her own popsickle treats by freezing a mixture of cough syrup and my grandfather's drool. They weren't very tasty, but they did give me a permanent fear of both getting sick and getting old.

We're having a little icy trouble of our own in department. The ice machine in the Building basement is still down for the count, and it will probably be another 5-7 working days until the thing is up and running. Until our ice machine is fixed, you can still get ice, though. Department X has graciously offered to let us use their ice machine. It's located on the second floor of Building X. If you get off the elevator on the second floor, immediately turn to your left and you'll see the ice machine in a little nook.

I need air!

When the mercury is climbing, there's only one thing that keeps me cool. A dry ice suppository. Unfortunately, I ran out, so I need to rely on air conditioning today. But for those of you who also rely on air conditioning, it may get a little warm. Facilities has to shut down the Building X air handler for about an hour to do some maintenance on it. Hopefully the system should be up and running by around 11:15 a.m.
