lies, damned lies and my resume

I'm writing my resume at present. A hard task at the best of times but on this occasion it is for an internal position (the one I am acting in). My problem is that I would usually over emphasise my brilliant points and ignore the negative. And this is how I expect that other applicants will manage their applications. How do you manage that in an internal situation? Everyone already knows what a screw up I can be and if I'm honest on the time management part of the job they'll just laugh. But I just know those other bastards are lying through their teeth in order to get MY JOB!!!!
I guess I have in my favour "Better the devil you know"
It's not much but it just might work.

It isn't ADHD or Library related (as such) but I think that Douglas Adams was a little bit ADHD and a little bit librarian. Perhaps?
Anyway, the hitchikers guide is being filmed at the moment. Cinematically this is the best news I've heard since I found out that LotR was being done by Peter Jackson.

The cast is,
Anna Chancellor .... Questular
Warwick Davis .... Marvin the Paranoid Android
Mos Def .... Ford Prefect
Zooey Deschanel .... Tricia McMillan ("Trillian")
Martin Freeman .... Arthur Dent
John Malkovich .... Humma Kavula
Bill Nighy .... Slartibartfast
Steve Pemberton .... Mr. Prosser
Sam Rockwell .... Zaphod Beeblebrox.

Work wise all I have to say at the moment is that "the hours are good"
