My ideal job...

I've always wanted a job like Bernard Woolley from the Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister Series. The title is Minister's Principal Private Secretary, but otherwise seems to have no real job other than being a nanny for Jim Hacker.

Being able to tell Sir Humphrey that Greek, unlike Latin, has no ablative case and generally act smart with no real purpose is appealing to me. That's why I like to blog.

But, unlike blogging, being a Minister's Principal Private Secretary would mean civil service bennies and a steady paycheque!
