    ACK! If I hear one more stupid thing about audit prep… time for another Shit List: Cancellation of the Holiday Ice Skate and Chili Party. Apparently not enough people signed up. I saw the list in Cindy’s outbox. It was me, Needleburn, and Kyle’s new assistant Darren. I am trying to NOT take that personally. Gingerbread Lattes. Yeeuck. Divisive office […]

Tyra, or Rhonda (as she was known around the office- at least to me, until yesterday!) joined […]

    An emotional week with Terry O. leaving (thanks to all who joined in to get TO the very nice YD Hologram lapel pin. It DOES look she’s winking!) Now…since I’m feeling low…and not just my blood sugar…I present another SHIT LIST. Office Baby Boom. As if it wasn’t enough to have my neighbor Carlita telling me how I need to […]

    Enough already!

Listed are a few of my favorite campus adjacent food haunts. I’ll add to […]

Thanks to intern supreme Terry O. for the helpful hint! And now back to my Spring Spectacular edition of the Shit List. The New OrderUP Cafe. I kind of liked it when […]

    So here was an interesting bit from a recent email. Seems my recent flurry of eBay purchases has set off some kind of alarm higher up. TGFTN (Thank God for Tom Needleburn)! Begin forwarded email: YD Mail Services provides a wide range of mail processing, collection, and delivery services to the greater YD campus and beyond. Like many departments, Mail […]

    First off, thanks to the Sunshine Committee for spreading the word about my recent ailment. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the awkward glances in the elevator these past few days. Here’s a few other things to gnaw on: Number 1, it is great to receive a generic card from gift shop signed “your friends at YD” in […]

I am really looking forward to finally getting some work done with the able assistance of Terry O. WELCOME TERRY O! Terry is getting a degree in sales focused accounting at BPI, and will be here throughout the […]

    Say what? Let me explain. I have received a LOT of positive mail from readers of the YD Intranet. BUT nearly 77.8% of that mail has indicated that I may be headed for heart trouble if I keep holding onto anger. In an effort to address this, I am compiling a list of things I like, rather than loathe. Hence […]

    Some people may look at this and think “Gee, HV, nice balloon collection.” Others, of advanced intuition and superior intellect will see, as I do – the limitless potential of the human imagination. In other words, I have begun taking classes in the fine art of inflatable sculptures. Look for more updates as I gain strength and ability! Requests will […]
