For some reason I never forget that the downtown Seattle Public Library, the Rem Koolhaas one, is great to work in--I can write on my laptop in the lustrous top floor, which feels like the inside of a disco ball, or I can do research (as I was today, for an upcoming article I'll mention more about when it's coming) to my heart's content. Good thing about the latter, too--I have a number of other things to look up still. And even if I'm just situated, in this case, on the eighth floor, where the music reference books are, it's really easy to kill time there, especially when looking up stuff that interests me. I'll be there at least one more day, more likely two--hell, maybe that's my workplace for the rest of the week. You won't hear me complaining.
