Faint Hope

Well here we are with three days left to go before the break and how much work on the white papers did we get done today? Grrr! Meeting after meeting, with Administration folk who seem to imagine that since teaching is over we have all the time in the world to sit and chat. Similar thought from alumni who drop by and must be chatted to.

Taken with the fact that the car had become incontinent over the last week (it pees on the ground every time it stops) this was not a productive day. A new water pump, etc etc and at least the mechanic should have a happy holiday. (Daren't we say Christmas any longer ?)

Humph, well there is a hint that the Duchess has kept her job. Not really sure that this is in our best interests, but that is the way the steam rollers. Further the suspicion is that a lot of the opposition was stirred up by the Dauphin. Which is interesting given that he is currently the internal candidate with the best chance - again so rumor would have it - of becoming the next Tsar (you think I picked some of these nicknames by chance?). But could this be a fiendish plot by the Prince Regent, who is also an internal candidate, to weaken the Dauphin in their mutual race ? The plot thickens . . . .

(And the White Papers wait, this was a nice break).
