7:00 AM – no one in, edit wikipedia entries for improper use of the word ‘momentarily’
8:00 AM – 1 person in, edit wikipedia when she’s not in the office
9:00 AM – everyone in, stare at inbox
10:00 AM – Told tech support would come to fix computer, fear struck into heart.
11:00 AM – While waiting for tech support, eat 1/4 of a birthday cake left in hallway
12:00 PM – Bacon!!!
1:00 PM – while waiting at PC for tech support, I realize that my drink is next to a very expensive computer and that I should move it before I accidentally knock it open.
1:23 PM (I checked) – Awake suddenly from nap because I realized I was falling asleep and didn’t move drink. In process of waking, flail wildly searching for drink to move causing drink to spray over desk. And god do I mean spray… Run to bathroom to get paper towels, realize paper towels only come off one at a time, rip paper towel dispenser off the wall and run past housekeeping holding paper towel dispenser.
Wow, I made a mess, things I had to remove Diet Cherry Coke from:
Phone receiver (there was a little pool in there)
Speaker Power supply
Keyboard (I actually drained it out)
Between buttons of wireless mouse
CAD navigation device
Interestingly, after the soda largely soaked into the carpet it started seeping under the clear plastic floor mat. The soda started to evaporate making little coke-colored clouds and rain drops. Amazingly, I was able to clean all of this with only the housekeeper seeing. He was glad I cleaned my own workstation but wanted the paper towel dispenser back.
On the plus side, I was quite awake after that micronap.
