One of our brokers was telling me about a conversation he'd had with the Chief Executive of an Australian company. The man said how much he enjoyed going round in his PJs. The broker assumed he meant his pyjamas and muttered some suitably sympathetic comment. He subsequently realised that the CEO had in fact been referring to his private jets. It was a clear sell signal.

Maybe in Scotland, KL. (No acquarium here)
Glad you enjoyed it ED

.. We have none of the above, especially the private jet. If you have no aquarium, you are in the zone of WB's preferred investments

This is isn't the rapacious idiot who owns YTL/Wessex Water is it ?? How these bastards have been allowed to hoover up our utilities is a scandal of epidemic proportions. But then if you will have somebody like Peter 'Bildeberger' Mandelson in a position of authority, then what can one expect ??

In fact Anon, this was my mistake. It was an Australian company.

Well I love going around in my pj's too - in fact if you ever come to my house unexpectedly, that is how you will find me. Now I did have to give up the Private Jets - very hard to get comfortable on the couch when you are wearing a jet - so have returned the the pyjamas!

Love the post WW and as an Australian, I just wish to advise that only the very very pretentious and somewhat ridiculous members of my community would ever use pj's for anything but pyjamas. In fact I have never heard it before (but then again I am neither pretentious or ridiculous ha ha ha) :-)
