I'm sorry that the book and the HoS's reaction to the whole mess are still haunting you. I understand about the depression of the summer starting. It's another chapter closed. No matter how you spell it, that's emotionally draining.


So with you here. A mess. Actually, probably a little behind you in terms of getting through the initial processing of the year. Hope your week is going well!

Argh. This sounds horribly familiar. All you can do is blow off the stupidity -- and make sure that your interactions with other colleagues are such that there's no traction for Co-Author's version of things.

The thing is, none of us are perfect: I know I can be a PITA and tend to be seen as a naysayer because I pick holes in people's plans. But I think the majority of people I work with also notice that I am willing to change my mind, and once decisions are made, I support them. You can't do anything about poisonous assholes, but you can make it so that others can figure out who is actually the cause of a problem.

Coleridge was high on opium when he wrote "Ancient Mariner" ... so, yeah, kinda weird.... Listen to the song "Xanadu" by RUSH for a good synopsis of the poem.
