Colleague announcement...

Tannoy announcements aplenty in bargain boutique Primark today. Like many major retailers they like to give their employees a feeling of ownership in the store's success. Hence, the announcements were for "colleagues" rather than staff, which must make the low pay a lot easier to deal with. Is "staff" such a bad noun?

Spent much of the afternoon refamiliarising myself with post-production nightmare Adobe Premiere, which was enormous fun. Wasted about an hour working out how to make noise-free digital footage look like damaged celluloid, which just shows how mad modern life can be if you're willing to put in the effort.

Still flirting with research - stockpiling thousands of words and press clippings and scribbles in notepads, all of which will be put completely aside when the time comes to start writing.
