Ey up Basil (Tuesday's letters) - I too live in the fair city of Nottingham and you have confounded me. I suppose some of the posher offices have a water boiler and not just a kettle to cope with the required tea making capacity. And yes, Thursdays are widely acknowledged as prep days for Friday (usually by people I manage). I'd say Friday pm is when work tails off - which is why I'm fond of calling essential meetings then (keep an eye on them eh?). But "gotten up to" as a verb? Really?

I would like to point out an excellent example of organisational addressative* nominative determination. The headquarters of The Geological Society of America is in Boulder, Colorado.
