I found it so hard to get up this morning. Lucky I still managed to call up Doug in his hotel and informed him Sophie’s contact number and the address. Phew! Really wanted to take a decent breakfast (after living in a lower life standard for such a long weekend) but I did not have the time. In fact I was 15 minutes late.
The joke today was the SIR 505 that William and Sophie has been arguing for so long (at least 4 months) and William finally admitted that this is a bug. So I spent two days in designing this new spot advice and in the end, after telling the Function Team that they need to test it thoroughly, i.e. all cases, they freaked out and placed the SIR to the lowest priority.
Anyway, managed to get Claude and Mohamed to involve this Spot SIR. Should be fun, I hope.
Doug came in SocGen for a meeting and it was kind of a different mood throughout the whole SocGen Team. T hey all know that my boss was coming in and everybody was a bit tensed up. They thought Doug would discuss about the invoices. We joked that Sophie has got the whips and chains ready with Aurore carrying a machine gun. But no, he talked about cemetery and how was La Defense being named. Bizarre! At the end of the meeting, I showed him the coffee room and while having a coffee, he told me that if his boss knows about the real situation, his boss would definitely cancel the contract. He is a peaceful guy I suppose and he wants a good relationship.
The Aerosmith album which was due to be out today, not today. Damn!
And I went out and had dinner with the BNP team. How boring. Really boring. Cheap food and what a waste of my precious time.
