I shall take the step of appointing Shard as Cruise Director (Acting) for 2010.
Overwhelmed as I am by this great honour, I feel that the burden of responsibity will be too great to be borne by my weak shoulders. I shall, therefore, most regretfully have to decline your kind proposal, particularly as we shall be on the briney from later today, and therefore unlikely to be in regular electronic communication with the rest of the Fleet.
In any case, Nick has started making executive decisions, as befits the CEO of a global multimedia enterprise, and it seems we shall be meeting up at Kerrera on Thursday night."Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them."
Cometh the hour, cometh the man!
