Kim Jong II of North Korea "He loves his people so much that on his birthday he permits them to eat white rice two days in a row. "
Like a country living under a dictator, once a year our staff gather together for a celebration of our leader's birthday. If he could, I'm sure he'd make it a public holiday. Bizarrely, he takes on the cooking duties himself. Perhaps not the best use of resources to have a man on a £100k+ salary spending all morning in the kitchen, but he likes to demonstrate his culinery skills.
So today we all ate together. The food was good, especially the cherries in bourbon, but I don't feel any closer to my colleagues on account of this - just bloated.
And in further relation to the title, I did have a bit of a Marilyn moment this morning when my dress was caught by a gust of wind.
