I will be less present for a few days because I am having some work done in my flat, and my desk and computer are under a sheet of plastic, the same sheet under which I am sitting at the moment. Right now the whole place looks like Basra, but today was the worst day, so I am hoping for some improvement later in the week.
What I endured this week was unspeakable, and it is still not completely finished, because there is a cleanup and reinstallation session tomorrow morning. I suppose the head honcho will also show up since I have not paid for all of the work yet. Among other things, I will tell him that it is not good business practice to leave me alone for two days with a worker who speaks no more than 20 words of French, no matter how conscientious he is.
