Personal E-Notebook Diary of Aileen B

House Mother; The Complex

Mon, 20/07/09, 0830h

I got back last evening to be told that no further courses are planned at The Complex. I and most of the other resident staff are being given full paid gardening leave on the conditions that we live off site and do not speak to any news-people. No other explanation than that we will be paid for our full annual contract if The Project does not recommence.

I haven’t fully decided but I’ll see about going to my mother’s home and enjoy the sunshine as it’s way too late to get a flight to Goa and watch the solar eclipse; shame!

  1. Full minutes of today’s Project Management Team meeting will be circulated in due course.
  2. To summarize the principal conclusions;
  • It is likely to become publicly known that there have been a disproportionate number of deaths amongst attendees at The Complex.
  • There will be speculation that this is “caused” by the energy drink.
  • Currently the precise content of the study mixture is known only to those with Code Ochre clearance.
  • No evidence exists of compromise of the security level.
  • The Project will continue to offer places for selection but no new courses will commence until after the inquest on subject M8, Frank Smith, currently scheduled for about 4 weeks time.
  • Covert surveillance of the solicitor for the mother of M8 will continue and be commenced on Dr Ridge, the specialist medical adviser to them and Aileen Blaze, the House Mother.
  • All public agencies involved with attendees at The Complex have been instructed to refer any and all enquiries to the Culture Press Office, where they will be stalled, pending.
     Acknowledge receipt.

House Mother; The Complex

Thu, 30/07/09, 1647h


How odd! Here I am in North Norfolk and who did I see at the local shop today but one of the security guards from The Complex in Cheshire! At least I think it was him? When I looked back out of the window he had gone; perhaps I imagined it? Anyway, mother is far more concerned about the possible impact of this damn Swine Flu on her free-range turkeys.

All recipients are to be aware that covert surveillance on Aileen Blaze may have been compromised. She may, correctly, have recognised one of The Complex staff; that operative has been withdrawn. Subsequent monitoring of her telecoms has not disclosed any evidence of breached security. No further action is indicated.

Inquest on subject M8, Frank Smith, is scheduled for Thu, 20/08/09. We anticipate that his mother’s solicitor will convene a case conference before this.

All participants in The Project are to remain vigilant about media enquiries and continue to refer all to the Culture Dept. Press Office.

    uh oh putting in minutes that you are using stall tactics might not be good.

  2. davehambo says:

    Hello bearman; I was trying to give an idea of some of the incredibly stupid items that are included in the minutes of some organisations. I saw really amazing errors in some official health service documents in my time!

  3. Gardening leave sounds like something I could really get behind. I’ve always dreampt of a job where I’d get paid to lie by the pool somewhere sipping a Red Bull.

  4. starlaschat says:

    I agree Gardening leave does sound lovely, sign me up. It is getting a bit tense, I bet gardening leave at this point would be very welcomed.

  5. Jillsy says:

    sounds like a sweet deal for all employees!

  6. Dan McGinley says:

    Looks like damage control is getting sloppy. I just had a gardening break myself, and the potatoes are going to be fantastic this year. The peach trees are actually overburdened. Sorry . . . off track. Those memos better stay confidential, or at least self-destruct in 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . phhhht! Great chapter, Dave. P.S. Did you ever see Peter Sellers in “Being There”? I think it’s one of the most clever movies ever created.

    • davehambo says:

      Hello Dan; despite a sodding cold winter, very dry spring and then scorching hot last 2 weeks, our garden (shrubs and flowers) is doing better than ever! According to IMDb, the fount of all movie knowledge IMHO, “Being There” was never released in Britain which is why I had never heard of it… shame as the synposis reads well. One to watch out for?

      • Dan McGinley says:

        Absolute genius! I need to get it from Amazon . . . the word play and intelligent humor is amazing — the way things are percieved by people who assume quite a lot from just a few well spoken words, which in reality mean something completely different. I’m glad the garden is well!

  7. Lisa says:

    Is it just me or does Aileen Blaze sound like a porn actress name?
    Story still going great, just one of my weird observations.

    • davehambo says:

      Hello Lisa; Aileen who sets men Ablaze? She’s had that effect on Tony from Tasmania, so yes, why not? Glad your still enjoying it and thanks for your visit.

  8. Tony says:

    Currently the precise content of the study mixture is known only to those with Code Ochre clearance.
    And Bearman who knows it contains chicken

  9. Tony says:

    Aileen busts the covert surveillance guy. Way to go baby!!!!
