I was in Gdańsk with Lucrezia Borgia and Solomon Grundy. We were there for a teleconference with a Dutch Conglomerate. It seems that the chocolate trends were not pleasing. Once again kabuki zero donned the 'genius hat' and formed a focus group. Do not question kabuki's methods! I bring results, and that is what kabuki gets the coin for. "Canape?" asked Lucrezia sweetly. "Oh I'm sorry Luce, I had canapes for lunch" I replied. She swung the tray towards Solomon as I flashed 'danger eyes' at him. "Thursday" was all he said as he took several. The big screen came to life, and the meeting began. "Hallo gentlemen" I began "How are my ideas working out?" I inquired sweetly, because kabuki is very sweet in 'business mode'. Like a cobra dipped in honey. "We had a little trouble with the directors" the chairman began. I cut him off. "Let me guess, there are no hot chocolate stands in the Olympic Village. There are no foil covered chocolate medals for the visitors." I relied icily. "Hot chocolate" said Lucrezia as she sprang towards the kitchenette. "Sit down Lucrezia", I barked. "This meeting is over, call me when you are serious" I added as I walked over and turned off the television. These guys are as bad as the Diamond consortium I thought as I sent the others packing. "Ideas" they pleaded "We need fresh ideas". "Send me a small bagfull for inspiration" I suggested. "Half-carat SI2 okay?" they inquired. "Half-carat is doo-doo! SI2? What ideas can I possibly gather with junk?" I Screeched at them. "Maybe you can sell diamonds to the visually impaired- please feel free. But if you want my help - you know how to reach me" I ended the meeting by politely flipping the room off as I made my exit. How do I waste a day in Luxembourg? Maybe grilled cheese sandwiches with the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. He is simply mad for my grilled cheese. (sprinkle garlic powder over the cheese). Try one today. Maybe with some champagne. Thats how the Dukester and I roll. No 'Grand Duke of Luxembourg' for kabuki. It is kaboo and the Dukester - havin grilled cheese in the palace. Watching 'The Banana Splits Show". We both adore 'Danger Island'. And that is quite enough. You have seen into my private affairs, do keep it to yourselves. Äddi.
