What strange tasks should I ask my new PA to undertake for me?
Must not be sexual or anything that would get me fired.

Alt: If you were to arrange a bash, where would it be and what would you plan?

Please note: this question does not ask about lunch, as you're all a bunch of lardies who could do with skipping a few meals.

Ask her to pen an email for you, then just start reciting lyrics to something ridiculous, but in a perfectly sensible voice. 'Bohemian Rhapsody' would work well for this.

used Sonic Stage, which is by far the shittest piece of software anywhere. For some reason it decided to convert every6 piece of music to atrac as well, which meant it was completely incompatible with anything.

Dear Naked Ape
I have taken the time to read your question and have noticed that you seek the dual functionality of an ipod dock and radio, perhaps for use in your kitchen? You can head bang to sepultura and dice the carrots at the same time. Given your budget the speakers will invariably be shit, why not go for a hassle free roberts.
