Our Vancouver office gets a lot of flak from our Toronto office for being a tropical paradise of balmy temperatures. However, this isn’t strictly true. The current temperature here is hovering around 9 degrees Celsius. LAST week, it actually was a balmy tropical paradise here, so I turned the heat off in my office for the season.
As usual, temperatures dropped somewhat and it’s a bit nippy here in the office today. I’m also chained to my desk, writing the Promo News. Since I can’t perform my usual cartwheels down the hall and the fire marshal told me I can’t burn coal, I’ve fallen back on the next best thing for warmth:
A cup of steaming hot water. Sourced from a spring located in our kitchenette, it’s exceptionally nutritious and all-natural. Unlike tea or coffee, you won’t experience a caffeine crash later, and if it’s piping hot enough, you can almost fool your brain into thinking it’s caffeinated via a sort of Pavlovian response. I’m thinking about starting a bottling facility here. Maybe my first customer can be the Ampersand Toronto Office? Eau du Livre anyone?
