Sorry I couldn't meet the people from Disney.

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I know they are one of your most important clients; I know they very much wanted to meet me at this screening in connection with the project you have engaged me to work on, and for which they are paying you a very, very large amount of money, and that my absence was unhelpful, especially as you told them I'd agreed to come.

I couldn't make it; I'm sorry.

You see, I was on top of a cliff on the east coast of Ireland about 40 km south of Dublin dressed up as a nun, having my photograph taken for publicity pictures for a Norwegian dance theatre company who present their plays in gibberish.

Sorry about that.

Methinks the original post was meant as a PM or reply and NOT as a new thread.

Oh no, if I know Hassan i Sabbah, this was a public airing of what he did this week. Wasn't it?

Question: did you tell the Disnoids that you were going to be at the meeting?

If no: who cares what a 3rd party told them? Sod 'em.

If yes: you can't be trusted and it will bite you on the arse one ay.

Dude, he was on top of a cliff on the east coast of Ireland about 40 km south of Dublin dressed up as a nun, having his photograph taken for publicity pictures for a Norwegian dance theatre company who present their plays in gibberish!

Where I come from, that counts as the very heart and soul of "trustworthy".
They spoke of the sayings and doings of their commander, the grand duke, and told stories of his kindness and irascibility.

damn you guys are so fucking l33t. you all get paid tons of money to do cool geeky stuff and when you decide dancing on a cliff in ireland is more important than actual business-type stuff, you can't get fired. i must be on the right track rediscovering my geek roots... i'll hang out more on appleinsider to try and learn the secrets from you masters. well done hassan. i too will make it some day to Eire and dance naked under the stars around a huge fire with pagans, witches, druids and some drunk catholics.

A case? Let's make it a jeroboam and call it even.

I actually have no idea what that means.

Thank you. I'll be here all week.

Why have you mentioned drugs in this matter, it looks like they have become a very usual topic these days. Anyway where a problem, there a solution, so stop wining and start helping. There is plenty help needed in drug rehab centers.

Pay attention kids - you may think pot is a 'happening scene' but one too many of those reefers daddy-o and you too could end your days like this.......

Oh lord, why in the name of all that's really annoying has this thread been resurrected?

But I am a man of my word. Surprisingly.







Happy now?
