I could not be bothered to eat with the staff last night. I stayed in my suite and had the chef prepare something light so that I could get on with some economic planning (given the number of requests I get for help, I though a bit of additional planning was sensible). Once finished I tried to have a bit of a work-out, but the Indian Clubs left marks on the ceiling and there really wasn't enough room to work up a sweat.
Busy day today. I decided to extend my beneficence at this time of financial instability for so many and brought in some new members of staff. They seem like good coves at this point, but only time will tell (let's see if they are up to the hard work, the total devotion, and respect that I demand).
