Sanity - maybe

Compared to last week, where I was interviewing job applicants while starving for a day, then had a colonoscopy, with several major meetings thrown into the mix, finishing with a farewell function that was twice as troublesome as it needed to be, I'm hoping for a return to routine this week.

The more I hear about the way the University is treating middle management staff, the more I think that it might be good if I miss out on the team leader job. Jobs at that level look like a real hospital pass - a reward that will backfire badly when the next inevitable round of cuts comes along. Sometimes it's safer to stay in the trenches, regardless of the potential rewards of the position. (Excuse the mixed metaphors.)
