The Tripod Insider
As of October 1, Tripod will unfortunately be a Gayle/Gail-free workplace.
Gayle O'Brien (the infamous gobrien) has decided to pursue her dream of
traveling through the U.K. She wasn't able to get the country out of her
system after spending her junior year at Oxford. She will be deeply missed. I
sit next to her, I should know. I will miss her impressive chocolate-sharing
abilities, her sense of humor, her style, her sneeze, but I will NOT miss her
obsession with the Spice Girls. Our other departing friend, Gail Burns, leaves
our weekly flotsam exhibit curatorial duties to Mary Beth. She's promised to
come into the office periodically to give local tag-sale updates. Phew!
I think it's also worth mentioning that both Gayle O'Brien and Gail Burns
attended the same college — Sarah Lawrence. We wish both of our Sarah Lawrence
graduates well in all of their future endeavors. This Friday, there'll be — of
course — more cake for the lovely ladies' farewell.
As Gayle plans to cross the ocean, Billsville has turned into quite a soggy
spot. With the fringe of Floyd bringing minor flooding and now a few dreary
days of rain, puddles have turned into rivers. Walking on the street has
become a little risky. More and more people have been parking next door in the
laundromat's lot, instead of trekking down the street to our lot! That'll all
change, come the new year. Now that the cable company downstairs is moving
out, Tripod can continue its world takeover — or at least assume control of
the building. This also means that the parking lot next to the building will
open up to Tripodians once again, which should help us avoid some serious
ice-slippage this winter!
