HAH! Awesome! I must see if I can limewire this. Happy stuff.
Heiress Christina Onassis was eccentric, to say the least. She seldom arose before 3:00 P.M., when she would breakfast on a chocolate croissant and a diet coke, which she referred to as “ my one-calorie tipple”. In Heiress: The Story of Christina Onassis, Nigel Dempster tells of the lengths to which Onassis was willing to go to stay in stock. At the time, Diet Coke was not available in France, where Onassis lived; therefore “each week Christina’s ten-seater jet was dispatched to New York to bring back precisely one hundred bottles. ‘Why not a thousand bottles?’ Yves asked Helene (head waiter and cheif housekeeper, respectively, at Christina’s apartment on Avenue Foch in Paris). “Because Madame doesn’t want old Diet Coke” Helene explained, and suggested that he serve it with considerable respect since it worked out at three hundred dollars a bottle.”
