And most people think I'm the right man for the job, so that's pretty buff! I bet Henry Schacht voted "No" in that poll. He's gone now, though, 'coz he quit the board when Pat and Serge wrote their goodbye notes, so I don't care what he thinks any more. (See Russo, Tchuruk to Leave AlcaLu.)
Not only that, I'm even getting an annual salary of €1.2 million (and maybe some bonuses of up to €2.4 million a year, too, if I do really, really well), so I'll be able to afford to live in Paris. It's almost as expensive as London, and that's saying something!
At least the wine and the food should be good here – mmmm, food – now I'm hungry.
Must try not to think about food: Snacking between meals is not good for you – at least, that's what my wife Helena says.
She likes Paris better than London, but I think she still prefers New York. I'm sure I can sort out some trips to the "Big Apple."
Oh, there I go, thinking about food again...
Right. Must concentrate. The first thing I need to do is write a really cool "To Do" list – that's what all new CEOs do. Now, where's my favorite pencil...
Got it, and it's already sharpened! Great. Here goes.
Right, that'll do for now. All this talk about food is putting me off my work. Time for some Moules Mariniere and a glass of vino collapso methinks! Yum!!
