    I'd go with 1. Impress on her that you'd kill for the opportunity, and tell her why, but tell her from a company-centric point of view. "I bring X experience and I think I can create value by Z. I thought it was odd that I had been screened out by the portal and when you followed up it reinforced my feelings."

    if you get caught in a lie you're cooked. it's possible you might get away with it but if you don't you get her caught up in your BS and that's a spectacular way to make an enemy.

    you've just always got to be honest, IMO.

    How many people are just complete, certifiable idiots. I don't get it.

    You should go to Speedy Romeo's and order a St. Louis style pizza see if your dream had truth to it. If so, it might be a sign that you are a prophet of our times. (The crust on their St. Louis style pizza is entirely wrong, but they use Provel.)

    My issue with provel might be the cheddar. I hate cheddar cheese.

    Someone sent an email to the group copying me, saying:

    Based on "HRoi's" direction from the meeting yesterday, here is what we are going to do:

    Maybe because HRoi is your handle and not your real name, you silly, little, meat muffin, you.

    It was my real name in the email. Or is it "real name"? :confused:

    If you're starting to think of HRoi as your real name, you're probably spending too much time on Styleforum website.
