So, seriously, why don't we talk about the Commons anymore...I know half of the group doesn't work here anymore, but come on. Let's start a rumor about people who don't work here anymore. Something completely outrageous...because that's still how it is here.

Love Tasha

4:01 pm - Peace!


So long and farewell, Commons!

I'll be back... try not to miss me too much, and don't ever forget me. After all, I was co-founder of the Information Center revolution, aka the rise of "polite bitchiness."

It's the end of an era...

I was just helping move furniture in Common Ground and John had not one, not two, but THREE smiling-then-frowning attacks in a row.

It made my day a little brighter... and then a little sadder.

current mood: hot

7:37 pm - Cheesy introduction time!


I'm Caitlin, I work in the office now (only not very much this month, since I'm taking two classes, too). I actually started about a month ago, but Tom didn't think I was cool enough to join this community at first. I guess he changed his mind.

Today is Meena's (samusicarus) last day in the Commons.

If you're working today, be sure to wish her well as she heads to the Illustration Academy and beyond!

I think it's my turn to have people annoy me today. Maybe it's because I can't wait to go on the trip, or because I didn't get much sleep last night and I'm starving, but for whatever reason, people are being annoying.

One thing I can't stand is when someone walks past the desk and says something like, "Hey, why aren't you smiling?" Okay, so I'm supposed to sit up here and just smile all day long? Another is when they walk by and see me yawning and say, "Nuh-uh....you can't be doing that!" Wow, you're so funny Mr.! Or, how about the lady who called, wanting me to look up Poppa John's Pizza for her. I am also in no mood to be hit on. Not that I'd like it later in the afternnon either, but it's way too early for that. I mean, come on people!

Wow, that felt good. 1:00 can't come soon enough.

current mood: annoyed

9:19 am - Bored, so I'll bitch ;)

I just got a lovely phone call from such a happy guy. (sarcasm)

Man: "Hello, I'm driving down to VCU, and I'm trying to put your address in mapquest, but there's no address listed on the website for the University."

Me: "Okay, are you driving down for graduation, or what building do you need to get to?"

Man: "No! I'm just visiting a friend who lives near VCU, so I'm trying to find the address. I can't believe that you don't list the address on your website and that I had to freaking call someone to get it!"

Whoa buddy. You sounded nice at first, where did that come from? Okay, first of all, we have so many buildings that make up VCU. There's no "main" building. Second of all, if this person that you're trying to reach is such a good friend of yours that you're visitng, why don't you just put their address into mapquest?

8:06 pm - BORED

I think we need to make that office behind the info desk into something. Maybe a game room with a pinball machine in it. Or it could even be a work-out room. There's absolutely nobody around here, and no questions to answer, so I could totally be buffing up right now, and lord knows I need to. =P Maybe I'll just lift this phone book a couple times...

Yeah, I'm definitely not used to it being so empty here. I think I'll try and find a good book to read for future shifts. Any suggestions?

The Commons Squirrel has been apprehended.

He "dropped in" on the OA staff appreciation this afternoon, made his way into John's office and soon after decided to take a leap out the window.

If only we could all get away from the Commons so easily..

Hm, a commons lj community.

Warning: Tom has rabies. He bit me. Then, it an attempt to gain access to the cabinet while Emily was on the phone, I was forced to tackle and bite her, so she is now rabid also. Then she went crazy and attacked the FAs. With Janet's martini. Nine times. Luckily, Dr. Reed was able to fend her off with his headset.

Some of that was made up. (the nine times bit. she only did it once.)

current mood: rabid

3:20 pm - OMG WTF USCA

Hahahaha YEEEEAUH.

Because we aren't in the Commons enough, here's a community for everyone!

As a trusty staff member, I'll be sure to let you all know when there is free food in the 104 workroom.
