JULY 2014 CENTRE EMPLOYEE NEWSLETTER
LIVE CONFERENCE CALL IN THE THEATRE
Straight from Los Angeles, California, where he is summering near the surf and sun, PTB Steven Long Mitchell will be gracing the Centre Employees with his virtual presence on Sunday, July 20th in the SL-15 ShoutBox at https://www.thepretenderlives.com to discuss Saving Luke, the GIFT, and the future of the Pretender. Send in your questions to Mr. Parker’s assistant, Miss Gazp, a email@example.com by July 19th! This is mandatory for all employees – attendance will be taken!
ACTIVITY 1 Mr. Raines, having discovered religion recently (as well are all very well aware), will be leading a multi-denominational prayer meeting Fridays at noon in the Great Room of the Building 52 in the Annex Wing of the Centre. All are welcome.
ACTIVITY 2 Calling all shutterbugs! Our favorite Cleaner-Turned-Upper Management, Ms. Brigitte, will be leading a session on clandestine photography next Friday in the SL-23 Dark Room. Please be sure to bring tripods and extra lenses. Subjects will be provided, and this course will count for Sweeper Continuing Education credits. See you there!!
Miss Russel, the Centre archivist, is out of the hospital and recovering nicely from her frostbite surgery. If you haven’t heard yet, she fell asleep at her desk in the Ice Cube and, when she awoke, the tips of her nose, fingers and three toes on her left foot were turning black from being so frozen! She lost just a very small bit of the tip of her nose and she won’t have to spend nearly as much time at the pedicurist (she should get a discount now – at least 30% off, right?). She’ll be back making her way through the halls soon – so be sure and welcome her with open arms and remember NOT to stare at her nose or comment about her new boot. Oh and flowers would be nice.
RECIPE FOR SUMMER
Served on Rye toast, it is still a family favorite and Chef Dani will be serving it all this month as a special in the Executive Dining Room.
Grandfather Parker’s Pimento Cheese Spread
- 4 ounces softened cream cheese
- 4 ounces diced pimentos
- 2 ounces mayonnaise
- 8 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
Place cream cheese and mayonnaise into a large mixing bowl and beat at medium speed until thoroughly combined.
Add cheddar cheese. Mix till combined.
Fold pimentos in last so they don’t get bruised.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
THE CORN MAN FINALLY GETS A GOLD MEDAL
As many of you have no doubt been told over and over and over again, according to MENSA, Mr. Cornelius was the 3rd smartest person born in 1987 – a distinction he vehemently disputes – felling he is # 1 in everything. (I can see you women rolling your eyes on that one!) Anyhow the Cornmeister has finally won one! Mr. C came in first in the Blue Cove Magazine unibrow competition! If you are near the Tech Room this week, be sure to give him a pat on the back- but be sure not to mention his recent demotion upon the return of Mr. Broots. (He is still very sensitive.)
