We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Who's the spook with the clipboard?

I've not said very much about Tilly's replacement as Library Secretary. Maudie Ebbsworth is, for the most part, OK but she has picked up one of the local habits very quickly.

The shopping centre we live in is hosting a promotion by a big insurance company. One of the organisers was just ushered into my office. We eventually worked out that he needed to speak to the shopping centre manager.

"Sorry," said Maudie, "I couldn't quite catch what he was saying so I assumed that he had something to do with computers."

Cow is thinking this could be a big opportunity, a window into a whole different world, entree to which previously would have been restricted.

When the organizers are ushered in, have a resume at the ready. Charm them with promises to take care of whatever they want done, immediately. Ply them with writing samples and your resume. Gently show them to the door.

Who knows?

His suit was even cheaper than mine. It didn't inspire confidence.

Cow has to admit she's impressed with anyone who wears a suit.

Even if it IS cheap.

So much better than....leather.....
