Officewatch 2010™: Success!... and Defeat

Posted by on Sun, Dec 26, 2010 at 10:39 PM

After a visit to a very understanding doctor at an urgent care facility, I procured a lovely bottle of Alprazolam for alcohol withdrawals and returned with some tools and a flashlight and set to work on Keck's lock. After quietly picking the knob and two deadbolts, an auxiliary bolt from the top of the door into a latch at the top of the door frame still stopped the door. I unlatched it by sliding my thinnest, sharpest chisel into the space between the top of the door and the bottom of the door frame. Jabbing the sharp corner into the back of the flat bar, I slowly and silently pried it down fractions of an inch at a time. When the work was done, I stealthily turned the knob and delicately pushed opened the door. I peered into the room and turned my gaze upward to the crow's nest entrance. Suddenly I thought I heard a sound from the top of the spiral stairs leading to the nest. Was it a latent hallucination? Was someone lurking up there? It was pitch black to my sight even halfway up the stars, and near pitch black in the hallway where I stood. I closed the door without a sound and returned to lock myself in the web office. I will investigate in the light of the morning. Co-workers are still two days away. For now, goodnight.

This is some Black Swan shit right here. Let's hope there aren't any glass mirrors in the Stranger offices.

You've likely disturbed the beast now there's a good chance that it will slither out of the crow's nest. Luckily, you can locate the beast by its murky singing of the Hall and Oates hit parade.

"And all though the house,
not a creature was stirring,
not even a Brissey?" Hmm.

Greetings, boxing day sloggers! Glad to see Grant is still alive, magic is afoot, and headless dolls abound. Obviously, just a regular day at the office. Did everyone survive the holidays with their sanity intact?

Ah Brissey, we hardly knew him. But, we will remember Traffic Watch fondly. Or not.

Too late for that now. You will not make it to the morning. The dolls...they are coming for you.

Hola, gus! I would have answered last night, but I am apparently in a batcave with sketchy wifi, otherwise known as my neice's bedroom...
When does Grant's intervention start? Should I FedEx donuts?
