When things are going bad at work...
I really wasn't in the best of moods on my way to work this morning. Still tired from the weekend and I'd got some depressing news at work yesterday, but let's go into that now. I was sitting on the tube ploughing through (and really enjoying) my book (see left side panel) when I read this: "There is only one sure means in life of ensuring that you are not ground into paste by disappointment, futility, and disillussion. And that is to always ensure, to the utmost of your ability, that you are doing it solely for the money." Well that cheered me up no end so thanks to Michael Chabon for that. Or as we used to say at college; "Could be worse. Could be dead."
