Motherfucking what machine?

I left the office at 12:10 today, a few minutes after most of the architects wandered off in a pack to have lunch. I spent a while figuring out how to lock up the office before I got it right, so when I finally headed out I was 10 minutes behind the Architect Posse. The deli they went to is only about 8 blocks away from the office, but my destination lay half a mile further on, over the hill to the park.

I caught up with the architects before they even reached the deli. I tromped to the park, ate my lunch, and tromped back. When the architects came back I was sitting at my desk calmly filling out shipping forms and not at all out of breath, and a few people almost lost their lower jaws permanently.

This is why everyone should walk three and a half miles in San Francisco and one mile in Berkeley five days a week. Who needs a gym?

Right. That is why Jacob should dump me and date a nice democratic girl who he can keep up with. Like Michele.

Tromp l'oeil!

I should quit my job at the architecture office and work at Home Despot. Or Office Despot.

Ooooh. Hardware. Office supplies. I, uh, need to excuse myself for a moment.
