Welcome news indeed!
XP from the FC.         It's Friday, so I must be in Shanghai. What time is it? I can't tell by looking at the window. My fake Rolex has stopped - maybe I never got it started - and all I remember from last night is the martinis, that girl's thighs, and the sound of fireworks exploding. But they weren't exploding for me.   I can taste the hangover like miner's gloves on the back of my palate, and as I rifle through those dim recollections of all my yesterdays...

But one does need a set of frames to put them in.   I just happened to walk past a little...
@Darkside, that's a great first effort. Suit fits well, everything is the right length (including IMHO the jacket - ok, it could be 1-2cm longer but it's fine as is). Lapel gorge is very high indeed - that's fashionable now but may not stand the test of time. Tie choice was appropriate for an interview, but you could lash out a little more here next time.
