Happy Blogiversary to me! No, really I know no one reads this blog but I am amazed that I am still at it a year on. And well if we think back to what inspired me...

So, I am over at Crooked Timber, taking a quiz that means nothing to me, and it appears I am Tyrion Lannister, not Ned Stark. And I suppose I can live with being a clever evil dwarf but what are these books? Am I missing something? Should this go on the summer reading list (lot of time in airplanes, who knows how much time in airports)? Who knows.

And well, I am a bit stressed. Lots of work. Again. We are actually interviewing for a couple of posts today and tomorrow and while going over the questions and the model answers (here's a hint, the Review of Public Administration is really, really important) I realise that this wouldn't really test candidates in a way that would indicate approbriateness to wrok with me. I feel quite strongly that a good interview question would be, "How cool is Brass?" I, of course, think he is way cool, even cooler than Warrick but I could be open to alternative beliefs. I am open-minded. Well, as long as we aren't discussing the genius of Elvis.

The books are the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin - really good, Lord of the Rings plus dynastic politics and sinister magic. Definitely recommended for long plane flights.

Just like the state of nature, nasty, brutish and short...I was always fond of the nickname 'Craxi'...Sometimes I cook, sometimes I tend bar, sometimes I even knit. Mostly I try not to read the plethora of government publications that cross my desk and write one page summaries.
