month swap

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Yeah, February. Not a month with much to recommend it this time around, I’m sorry to say. On the plus side, Olympics! On the minus side, WEATHER. But as February draws to a close, I’d like to give a shoutout to change. For the last six months or so, I’ve been changing my email backgrounds […]

It’s Iron Bear! 1. It’s really hard to take a photo of the black bears without their eyes completely disappearing. 2. Thanks, *Andrea! 3. Yes, that’s some patriotic swag Iron Bear has going on there at the collar. Gotta support your teammates!

notes from the meeting of the staff

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

That’s right, it was Staff Meeting Day! Very glad I did not volunteer to get the food; apparently it was quite a task. The big news: new!guy showed up for the last few minutes of the meeting (apparently that’s when he was invited for? idk what my boss is thinking ever) and had the chance […]
