I'm still waiting for the invention of an automatic paperwork handling machine. Or something like that.

Like... an instant secretary, maybe? I'd really like an instant secretary. That would come in so, so handy. It would mean I had someone to do that heap of typing that is waiting for me and the hundred and fifty small and more or less annoying other tasks that are not yet done.

Oh well. If anyone knows where to get an instant secretary... please tell me.

I once worked for an ambassador who also complained about the paper work and the computer work. "Yes," I said everything was better in the old days. You would have had a secretary.
"Indeed," he replied dreamily, "and what's more she would have sat on my lap..."

Hah. Well, I'd pass on the lap-sitting part, but a secretary would really be great sometimes.
