    Early in the mooorning!

    I spend the first four hours or so of my work day as the sole person in the building, at least it sure seems that way as i've yet to see anyone else!

    5 O'clock AM... Someone pulls across the street and puts their highbeams on through my window.. What the hell's going on i'm wondering as I sit there slurpin' my ice coffee.

    5:10 - Still there! Wait, he's moving, pulling around.. And, it's a cop I realize as i'm wiping the powder off me from my bavarian cream donut! He's watching, me.. I'm hoping he doesn't tell me to put my hands in there air or anything..

    5:15 - He's gone!
    Must've need a bavarian cream donut!

    5:30 - They did work on the HVAC yesterday. There's one crazy ventilation system in this place...

    5:45 - Ventilation sounds like someone's walking around in the cieling, tapping on the windows and running in the hallway! Perhaps some

    5:50 - Kabam! Ah! Heat kicked in.

    6:30 - Perhaps it kicked off. It's rather cold in here.

    6:50 - Getting light out now, think i'll make a post on SP!

    You don't know the half of it!

    I've been doing this for a few weeks now, always somewhat amusing. There's also a train that occasionally passes by the outside wall of the building, it's quite interesting..

    I'm very worried about you now - er...what is it you do exactly??

    You're at work before 5 am???? Is that because you've worked through the night or are you a masochist?

    I start at 5am, it's a good commute so I do what i've got to do to avoid the morning and evening rush.

    Of course, i'll still take the scotch.

    As for what I do.. Well, it's all I could find at the moment, though the job description's curiously off. It involves some mail that minus any earlier donut remnants, i'm hoping doesn't contain any white powder.

    It's sometimes nice to know that you're the only one in the building. It's a very peaceful feeling.

    Yep, sure is. When you *know* you're the only one.
    I've yet to see any security in here, i'm always the only car in the lot when I arrive, but for some reason the main door is usually unlocked. For the most part it is peaceful and being out of work around noon is a nice touch.
