This morning when I arrived at the office, I was assailed by the stench of shellac, paint, concrete and worst of all: plaster powder.

Yes, the white powdery stuff that is omnipresent at every renovation. The white powdery stuff that settles on practically everything and doesn't quite seem to vanish no matter how many times you dust and wipe.
I'm highly allergic to that stuff. I realised that last month after my boss got someone in to knock down the meeting room partition. Some of the plaster powder settled on my mouse and mouse pad and within an hour of using the mouse, my hand developed welts and started itching like mad. It was hell.
So this morning, I decided to wipe my desk and PC myself. (The office cleaner was so happy. Of course lah, one less desk to wipe.) Anyway, I think I didn't do a really good job because the rag was kinda dirty to start of with and now my left arm feels iffy. Sigh.
I think tomorrow I'll bring my own (clean) rag and some (good quality) detergent.
Or maybe I'll just go on MC for a(nother) week. After all, I DO have a valid reason! *self-righteously*
I feel uber lazy.
