Meanwhile, back at work, I get a long chat from M downstairs about how to sort out the problems in my department. She chats on about fundraising, startegies, persistent financial problems. I'm trying to think whether my re-grade included any budgeting responsibility. It certainly didn't cover any management duties, and that ought to include managing upward, surely? (My boss tells me I have nothing to worry about, should I believe her?) The intangibles of the situation are beginning to tire me out. Stretched.
And the news today is too bloody grim.
But, on the bright side:
Somebody decided to let Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom do a pirate film together. I saw the trailer last night (before Identity) and it looked great, like a Vertigo comic come to life.
