Sorry I couldn't meet the people from Disney.

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.

    Where I come from, that counts as the very heart and soul of "trustworthy".

    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.
