Just Like Gilbert and Sullivan

March 16th, 2009 | Tags: ,

When asked if I would be interested in pursing a opportunity to work on an overseas project (3 weeks in country, 3 weeks at home, with a projection of 2 or 3 trips), I replied in a manner which would make [Gilbert and Sullivan][1] proud:

> I am not adverse to further investigation of this opportunity.

(As everyone knows, Gilbert and Sullivan are famous for songs “full of words, and music, and signifying nothing”, as first noted by [Tom Lehrer][2] in his song Clementine.)
