Our CEO normally joins us Christmas Eve lunchtime in the boardroom, for Xmas nibbles and drinks. But not this year.

He's snowed in. In Kentucky.

Is this the same CEO who flies you to exotic restaurants on the continent for good reviews, or whatever it is? He seems like a good guy. I hope he gets home for Christmas.

The same one. He's been visiting a small printer company in Lexington ... Lexsomething IIRC ... and was somewhat worried about getting stuck. And he is stuck.

The meal was a bunch of colleagues, who were supposed to be attending the Gordon Ramsey place at Versailles. The trip involved travelling Eurostar, but alas for ogranisation, there was a fire in the Channel Tunnel the day before, which rather messed that up.

I've dropped him an email expressing commiserations, hope that he gets home in time to spend tomorrow with his daughters, and a hope that it wasn't that famous product of Kentucky that was the real reason for the delay. However, he's a loyal Scot, and deeply convinced that Whisky should never have an E additive.

Ah well, I've now got a bottle of Speckled Hen open in front of me.
