Ying and yang, yo and yo

My Japanese obligations are fulfilled and I have winged westward. In a well-ordered world I would have continued east, to interests in California, but Precision Handling's domestic operation is under-staffed. Our Sales Director, Dr Bruni, is keen that this should not be neglected, and a woman with eyes and sapphires like hers is not easily contradicted. It is possible that I have a tiny crush on her, but she seems to be in love with her husband. I met him at the firm's Christmas party; a poisonous dwarf named Sarkozy, who claimed to be President of France. Not in that appalling car he drives, he isn't.

She has said she is easily "bored with monogamy", and that "love lasts a long time, but burning desire - two to three weeks". you could be in there Mr Inky.

Carla Bruni is your Sales Director?? Coincidentally, one of Gordon Brown's ex-girlfriends, Princess Margarita of Romania, now cleans our office toilets.

Inky I am torn as to which is more ridiculous . To spuriously claim you are the president of the ghastly French or to actually BE the President of the ghastly French.
The man is damned iether way

Do you work in rubber Mr Inky?

Pirelli tyres perhaps?

Put him down, Scarlet, and just know when you're beaten.
Inky and I have a shared business interest in helium which, if you bothered to read previous posts, you would know about. However, we don't often go to the plant because we don't like the way they speak to us.
However, we are spoken of very highly in other milieus.
There are two extremely weak jokes hidden in that paragraph, Scarla. Can you spot either of them?

Scarlet, burning desire for 2 to 3 weeks? I'd be a wreck.

Gadj, yes, her first name is Carla. But if you've got a princess as a lavatory cleaner, why shouldn't Precision Handling have a Harvard particle physics PhD as a sales director?

Beast, he is damned, and on his merits too. I'm so glad we agree on this.

Scarlet again, when required, yes. Precision Handling expects flexibility from its staff, both physical and intellectual.

Nurse, possibly not. Not the calendar, anyway.

Mrs P, a sympathetic shoulder to lean on, I'm so glad. Dr Bruni has been frosty lately, since she heard me say "jumped-up gasket-changer" in a context where it could, and did, only refer to her husband.

Inky, do wake up dear. While you're fawning around on Mrs P's shoulder, you've been challenged to a duel by a Frenchman over at McChe's place.

What? Did I miss something? Again.
Sorry, it's the time of the month when I'm practising my fouetté rond de jambe en tournants... or something.
