January 19

Today was an odd little day at work. It was quite peaceful, with several people out of the office, so I had a chance to catch up on some things I've been meaning to do---like sort through a batch of office supply catalogs, replacing the outdated ones with their newer counterparts.

I also ordered some supplies---no, it wasn't a case of seeing all those shiny catalogs and going wild; we needed ink cartridges for the printers.

I did see something odd outside my window. Some background: a man who has an office in another part of the complex is having a stereotypical midlife crisis, complete with purchase of a sports car. Today, I happened to look out my office window in time to see him polishing the car.

At first, I thought he was going after some bird poop, but no, he spritzed the whole car and polished away. I have no idea what got him started on this endeavor, but I don't think he had planned it, since he was dressed in business clothes. On the other hand, he did have the spray and a polishing cloth with him.

Whatever was the reason, it was the oddity for the day. And even that was peaceful.

On top of being peaceful, it was a lovely, chilly day here. The sky was postcard-blue, and you'd have had to look hard to find any evidence of yesterday's rain. It's what all of winter here would be like, if I could make those rules.
