Never, EVER feed them after midnight

Office of Doom has had a rather impressive gremlin infestation the last couple days. No internet most of yesterday or the first part of today. Internal server connections making snails look hypersonic, and wacky error messages from the database every time you turn around. The thermostat has been downright delusional, although whether the reading is too high or too low appears to depend on random whim. And yesterday afternoon I hit the pickup button in response to the outside-line ring and found myself talking to a very confused collector two offices away, who was trying to ring his manager's extension.

Knock on wood, everything seems to be behaving now. But if you see a huge purple alien ion storm in the sky over Chicago or something, I warned you first. ;-)

Gremlins? You sure? I was worried that I might have caused some sort of rip in reality by trying to feed a New York Metrocard into a CTA fare reader. *g*

And I consider this a perfectly plausible scenario, too.

There's very little I wouldn't believe anymore. The world is just too weird sometimes. :-)

Too weird...ever feel like you really need to have the office blessed?

We're actually allowed to have contained candles. It has been. :-)
