Having an intolerable day:

Started by booking a registration. Then a hotel. Then wrote an e-mail asking someone about the work they're doing for us. And another asking someone else the same. And another one explaining to someone else exactly what they need to do for us, as if it wasn't perfectly obvious.

If I'm going to be a secretary, should be paid like one rather than being paid like a scientist.

Something along these lines on Ana's website. My favourite quote on her link:

I'm now 31, and have never recorded a hit album, acted in anything that was seen by more than about 12 people, written a best seller or indeed done very much of any merit whatsoever. However, by the time he was my age, Kurt Cobain had been dead for five years. At least I've out-achieved him in one respect.Pete Hazell, London, UK

And some favourite quotes from a list I got today:

It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?

This all ads up something. When I've figured out what I'll let you know.
