The Crows Spoke Again.
I don't know if crows act as messengers from the Goddess who has me collared, but there are these times when ... well, they can certainly be omens. So far, always omens about crap going down at work. It happened again yesterday.
I was just driving in to the job. The Chubby Hubby and Spawn, who had been out in the car earlier, had left me an almost empty gas tank, so I went to fill it before work rather than after. Snow was predicted, after all.
All along the drive there were crows, in abnormal numbers, in abnormal places. I figured it was just due to the oncoming snow - just crows being crows, and confirming the weather report. In fact I felt a bit smug, as I reviewed that I was filling the gas tank, had pretty new tires, my radiator was finally fixed, I'd replaced a burnt out turn signal bulb myself, etc.
Thirty minutes after I got to work, or no reason, the damn 'fire suppressant system' goes off. Green chemical pours down on the grills and my stove (where I had a large batch of vegetable soup started), mist from it goes EVERYWHERE.
The rest of my time there was spent cleaning up toxic chemicals. Oh joy, oh rapture.
Maybe I should have warned the managers when I got in.
