To thank me, my managers bought me a bottle of this (the divinely sippable Ardbeg 'Airigh Nam Beist') and a bottle of this (the eminently guzzlable Highland Park 12 year old), which I think shows how well they know me.
I had to fill out a self-assessment form for my annual performance review today. I think this is the first time in my life I've dared to rank myself at the top of an achievement scale.
They agreed with me.
I know these forms are fairly meaningless. It'll get filed away in some adminstrative office cabinet and no one will ever look at it again. But it meant something to me, to insist to others that I did something, and I did it exceptionally well.
I'll be raising a glass of Beast to my Cluster efforts tonight.
