Today I had a lengthy meeting with Bert about the auditorium “punch list”, the list of imperfections in the upgraded auditorium. He is banned from taking it to staff any more. As chair of the AV committee I am going to present it under the idea that these problems need to be fixed because they impede our work.
To that end I am rewriting his original list, which contained a lot of grumpy comments and implied criticism. I also wanted to drop several items. Today he persuaded me to put several of them back in. Sigh. Which means lots more editing and writing. When? Sunday, maybe, or Wednesday.
In the afternoon I went out for an hour long spin in my motor-car. Such is our exciting life.
