a brief hiatus...

I've been out of the office for a couple of days, with other things on my mind. Unfortunately when this happens there's always a pile of stuff (that needed doing yesterday) waiting on one's desk. So I'm afraid that I might not be in a position to post anything here for the next couple of days. But don't go away - I'll be back :)

Congratulations!!!!

As for the pile up of stuff on your desk, I suggest the following method:
Throw everything up in the air. Anything that lands face-up, you deal with. Anything that lands face-down gets filed in the shredding bin...

Sounds like a colleague's (claimed but unlikely) method for marking large numbers of assignments: stand at the top of the stairs & let them go. The ones on the top step get the A+...

The Stair method is usually attributed to Oxford, though only by those losers from Cambridge.

Ah, that explains it :-)

Who's calling people from Cambridge losers? Bah!

I'll leave you & herr doktor to sort this one out between you. Renee & I will watch & pass the popcorn round :)
