It's been an eventful day. And I have the photos to prove it. But first, let's start with why I'm not prepared to share them with you just yet.
Last night, the fire alarm went off. I wasn't going to go down but the sign beside the elevator says to go down as soon as you hear the alarm.
I took this one from the stairwell on the 7th floor.
Not many other people went down either.
And now, the guest of honour...
Tonight, as I was sitting down to upload my pictures from the day's activities, the fire alarm went off again. I didn't get excited, and was prepared to ride out the all-pervasive noise of the alarm in my apartment.
Until I wandered past the door and smelled smoke.
Proving once and for all that I am indeed the Gadget Princess, I grabbed my camera and the iPod and threw them in my purse (and then grabbed my wallet), threw on a sweater, and hustled downstairs.
There were a lot more people outside this time, and we were out there for almost an hour and a half. In the meantime, I wandered over to McDonalds for a McFlurry, of which I only ate about half before I got cold and bored, so I threw it out and wandered back to the building.
I didn't take any pictures this time, because there was no subtle way to take pictures of the hunky firefighters (well, the two hunky firefighters) and the cute paramedic.
