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

Dear me! I wish I had a peanut!

The fax machine is broken. Mary's banging on about it to the Acq. Team:

"As soon as it's fixed you need to stop posting the orders and get them faxed through. It's an intolerable delay on our performance."

This is taken with a pinch of salt. Twice a day one or other of the Acq. Team goes into Mary's office to ask her to sign the orders so that they can be sent off. And twice a day she'll "do it in a minute." The orders can be piled up for a week before they get signed.

Just a week? A nano-second relative to some periods, I daresay.
