last night they screwed up when they turned the lights out. the hallway lights went out as well as the ones in our rooms, and for a few wonderful seconds it was completely dark. i'm really looking forward to darkness.
the darkness around here today is just the general mood. it has been an eventful and rather unpleasant day.
i was in the shower this morning, around 10am, when the loudspeaker came on. “ladies, to your rooms. everyone to your room.” fuck. that's weird – i wonder what's happening? my first thought is that the very pregnant woman on D-wing has gone into labour, but as time goes on it starts to feel more tense and serious than that. there's a lot of activity over the loudspeaker, asking various important people (like lieutenants aka white shirts, and the head of security) to call various extensions. the guards are not happy. lunch is a solemn affair, behind closed doors with no mass trading opportunity. we are not impressed.
