ok, so...i've been MIA

Posted By Whitney Fletcher, asba, Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Go ahead and call me a slacker now. I'll own up to it. However, in my defense I have been too busy to blog because I've been putting together some BOMB DOT COM things for you, the asba member. From the Holiday Mixer at the MIM to the Annual Meeting to our upcoming section in InBusiness Magazine. These past few months have been busy...not to mention the holidays thrown in the loop.

Now that those excuses are out of the way here is a synopsis of the last four months at asba:
1. Our "beloved" printer Cera officially died. We managed to find a new printer. Her name is Roxi. She's a Xerox printer...get it? Xerox? Roxi? Haha, oh man! RIP Cera, you won’t necessarily be missed.
2. Kristen Wilson and I determined we can no longer go into meetings together because we look ridiculous. Kristen is super tall while I am super short. When we roll in together we end up looking like some lame office superheroes. Which means I am the dorky sidekick...something I am not OK with. See the attached picture to get the full effect.
3. We hired a new VP of Marketing and Business Development, David Drennon. I don't really have anything funny to say about this because we really like him and I don't want him to leave :)
4. Rhette Baughman (Member Services Manager) and I had the genius idea to get everyone goldfish for Valentines Day. Let me say that there are some people in this world that I shouldn’t be allowed to converse with because we come up with ideas that sound great but in reality are dumb. Rhette is one of those people. In short, two fish died before we even transferred them to their bowls, two jumped ship and had to be rescued from the floor and a week later all but one have gone to fish heaven. What we thought would be a cute Valentine’s day gift has turned out to be depressing with multiple fish funerals in one week.
5. It was determined that the asba staffers shouldn’t ever drive. In the past year, three asba employees have been in a total of six car accidents (5 of the 6 were not caused by the asba employee). It’s so bad that our resident Safety Director, Harold Gribow, is deathly afraid for our lives. He even went as far as to give us a safe driving class.  We are just all looking forward to the day that we can transport ourselves from place to place like they did in StarTrek. Yep, I just busted out a StarTrek reference!

Now that we are all caught up I will try and not wait four months in between posts. Keyword, TRY ;)
