shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


another one for the king of the road...

Okay, I can't resist linking to this story about an NIH scientist who claims he's paid to do nothing. (I'm sure it's true.)

This, however, is the part I'd like to call your attention to:

McSweegan said he struggles to fill his eight-hour workdays by reading, exercising and writing fiction. He has self-published a bioterrorism thriller and a science fiction novel, and is working on a third book.

But he says his six-page job description is the ultimate work of creative writing and describes his position as "a bizarre, surreal situation -- part Orwell, part Kafka and part Dilbert."

That is all.
