Mental Note

Any dose of calm and perspective brought on by three weeks of relative peace and quiet can be undone by a mere 48h of "regular" work.

The quarterly results detail was somewhat surprising, though - business looks to be improving, although I would very much like to see a breakdown of European sales, since pretty much everyone who has talked to me in the past couple of days regarding s was complaining about their complete absence in retail (even s are gone from shelves).

As to tomorrow's announcement (whatever it turns out to be), the best take comes from an staffer I've been talking to: "Whatever they announce (on Wednesday), I'll dress up as a reindeer if it's in Portuguese shops before ".

I'm not in a hurry to find him a reindeer suit.
