My committee had been taken over by a drag queen dressed in a yellow and purple mini-skirt and a yellow nylon wig. I dare not object, however, because she was also a senior member of academic staff.
Her first task was to dispute everything that I had written in the minutes of the past meeting. The corrections that she suggested were going to make the updated set of minutes twice as long as the original.
Then she broke the meeting up and took half of us downstairs. Here we ate chocolate tray bakes while waiting for our turn to give a five minute presentation on the three most important aspects of our work. With so little notice I decided that my only option was to say something about Athena SWAN, my knowledge management class, and the impact of the work of the Library and Information Science Research Coalition.
When Lord Sugar winked at me I knew that my choice of subjects was perfect.
