There’s a quiz on Quizfarm.com (thanks for the link Rik) that tells you which Discworld character you most resemble. Turns out I’m Lord Vetinari. The judgement call on this that I think that’s probably right, apart from the dog called Wuffles. (I would never have a dog called anything, especially not Wuffles.) One of my early bosses was known for being Machiavellian in getting the results he wanted, to the point of sometimes pretending he wanted the opposite. That was a trait I admired and tried to develop in myself. When I became a boss myself, (later quite a big boss) my deputy always called me devious, and she was right. It’s an art – don’t knock it. It gets things done.
For those who don’t like Terry Pratchett’s creative fiction, you have my pity. It must be awful being dull all the time.
Just because I feel like it, here’s a photo of a goldfinch in the garden. Exotic-looking thing, isn’t it? Photo taken through the window, hand-held.
