Subject: My laptop is broken

Due to marauding monkeys here in Tunisia, my laptop is in the local shop being worked on. If you need to contact me (and you should, being that I run this dog and pony show) please feel free to use my personal email account.

Otherwise, the vacation is going fine - and now with the laptop out of service, I can actually begin to relax. Of course, that won't happen since Krista came down with some sort of stomach bug (unwashed dates we think) and Kathy has been playing nurse.

It wouldn't be a vacation without Krista vomiting I suppose.

Best to you all,

Subject: Re: Invitation for Valentine's Day Office Party - Monday, Feb 14th

To be honest, I hate that I am not going to be back in the country in time for this lovely Valentine's Day celebration.

You know, when I first started this company back in the late 60's, we had, shall we say, a more racy Valentine's Day party - centering around a grown-up of version of spin the bottle. Alas, that was then and it's something that just isn't done anymore (the free-willing making out with co-workers that is).

I have to tell you though, those were some fine memories. As you can imagine being the boss had it's perks.
There's a joke in there somewhere, but alas - being that this is a company wide email, I digress.

Things here in Tunisia are fine - my laptop is still in the shop and I am beginning to wonder if it was such a good idea to drop it off at a place who's name when translated is "Wonderful Fixing Computer Camel".

Live and learn.

Hope all is well in New York.
See you all next week.
