azurelunatic: The Space Needle by night. Slightly dubious photography. (Default)
This morning (after all the other commotion involved in getting to work) I was going peacefully about my slightly fraught Tuesday morning inventory of all the kitchen items (food and food-related supplies) so I could get the weekly orders sent off before the 10am deadline.

Just after 9am, the curly-haired brunette manager-type asked me if I had encountered "the weird guy" and wanted to make sure that I was safe. She'd been on the elevator with another woman, and a visibly/audibly angry man. She'd already swiped her badge and punched our floor (some floors, ours included, are card-access-only, after "the Incident") but she was sufficiently uncomfortable being alone on the elevator with this guy (who had not selected a floor) that she got off at the earlier floor that the other woman had selected. This did mean that the elevator went all the way up to our floor with the guy on board, unless he'd selected a floor after everyone else got off.

It was the hope that he'd just gone back down to the lobby, and since I didn't see anyone completely unexpected (there were a few visitors from offsite, so I didn't recognize everyone) and nobody else complained, he probably did.

I've requested a copy of the incident report that building security made, since company facilities are also likely to want records of this.

I've had to explain a few times now that I have a hobby of picking up and swinging around large men, and that makes me harder to intimidate than some other people of my general body form-factor. (And The Wall was a revelation to me when I first heard of her. Someone who consorts with supers, whose powers are hyper-competent bureaucracy and standing there like a fucking wall? YES PLEASE.)

Babyfish, who is definitely not so baby anymore, has accepted her first post-college job and is moving to San Diego at some point after finals wrap up.

Her ground crew in San Diego is ... somewhat more limited than previously thought, given that there was just an acrimonious breakup with the [UNFLATTERING OPINIONS GO HERE] boyfriend who lives in that area. (The idea that she would live with him in the post-college era was scrapped when she lived with him over the summer and it turns out that many of their personal circumstances are incompatible.)

Her brother's coming down, but she wants her mom to be there. Her source of comfort and stability amongst all the things which are going to be new and different and out of routine and terrifying.

... that is to say, not her birth mom, but me.

Excuse me. I'm having a moment.
