there was a fire alarm in the laundry building earlier, and no one got up. we all stared at each other for a few minutes, but only a couple of people finally left. i eventually did, since i was tired of listening to the alarm, and took my lunch to a bench outside. the alarm finally stopped. i'm still kind of disturbed that noone seemed very concerned about it.
the laundry building is also the only building on campus lately where i've been actually, actively warm. it's not at all bad outside today, but i don't want to leave the warmth to go to my lab. :)
