Siren Song

Last night at about midnight, after I had gone to bed but just before I actually fell asleep, the fire station's alarm went off. "BLAAT!" it said, amazingly loudly, over and over. Then after a minute, it was followed by lots and lots of sirens going in every direction, up and down the road, around and around.

I never actually discovered what happened, though.

On our way back from New York, we bought bagels, because the best bagels are from New York. Rhode Island bagels don't even compare. I'm sure I've mentioned this before. But now, we have a load of bagels, and since I'm trying to get to work earlier I find I don't have quite enough time to eat a bagel before leaving for work. So I am missing out on our bagels! Grr. I will have to have a bagel in the evening, but that just doesn't seem right.

My back must be healing, because I no longer feel like I am perpetually leaning against the sharp end of a tack. In fact, it's not even a dull ache anymore.

Oh yeah, I also made a DeadJournal version of the Flesch-Kincaid analysis meme, because it was requested of me and, y'know, it's simple to do. It is available here.

Update:
truepixie pointed me to this Good 5¢ Cigar article that says that the reason for the sirens was apparently that there were shots fired outside one of the dorms, and that it actually happened at 2:30 a.m., long after I was asleep. Heh. Also, oy.

just wrong!
bagels can't be eaten in the evening! its just wrong.....you should wake up to the smell of sweet bagels and then eat them. Its like an unwritten Bagel rule.

Er, i wasn't reading effectively, apparently, cause they couldn't have been the reason for the sirens... I guess that happened Saturday am. Oops. But I still have no idea why there would be sirens last night.

Oh, wow. I completely missed that, too. Hmm.

Weird. Oh well.
