all! With this newsletter you'll get to know a little bit more
about our new co-president, Karen. But before that we'd like to
get word out about our plans for Andrew's birthday. First, we
will be having a chat on Saturday the 18th at 6:00 PM Central. It
will be at JABB's chatroom which is web-based and can be found at:
you think you may attend please email the co-presidents
there's a change and we need to
inform you. If you live in a really different time zone and
that's just very inconvenient for you, email us. Maybe we can
arrange to meet you at a different time to celebrate. :-)
also want to do a festive newsletter. What we'd like from you is
to write something nice or funny for Andrew to mark the occasion.
Like imagine you're making out a birthday card for him. It
doesn't have to be long. Be as creative as you want. We'd
to have this very first Andrew's Birthday Newsletter have input
several people. :-) If you plan on submitting anything
please email it to this address by the 15th.
Now for an
Hello Karen! I'm glad to meet you and would like to welcome you
as JABB's new co-president. I don't actually write much for the
newsletters so I hope my interviewer skills are up to the task.
JenniAnn usually does but she's... (awkward pause) Well,
know we all need some time to ourselves sometimes. JABB is
important to me so I hope you don't mind if I ask you a few questions.
No problem. (Karen slightly blushes) Besides, I know about
JenniAnn's ... umm ... situation. I'm just so glad to finally meet you.
Great, thank you. So, hmm, let's see... I'm sure our members
would like to know a bit about you and I would certainly like to get to
know you better. So what would you like us to know about you?
There really isn't much to tell. I've been a resident of Dyeland for
several years now. I share a small place with Bunny called Bunny Haven
in a part of Dyeland called Hara Leah. I am also looking forward to
working with you and JenniAnn to keep Dyeland a fun, safe, and relaxing
place to live.
And I look forward to working with you. (smiles) What do
you feel qualifies you to be JABB's latest co-president?
(With a slight and knowing smile) My mental and emotional state is very
stable. There will be no need to worry that I'll suddenly
disappear because of some mysterious happenings some where. I also get
along with a diverse group of people. I'm sure I can help keep peace
and tranquility that the citizens of Dyeland deserve.
(nods appreciatively) Let's see... another question...
sorry, I just really don't normally handle these things. Oh, any
thing you'd like to see happen with JABB during your tenure as
I'd like to see things stay pretty much as they are. Dyeland has so
much to offer the citizens. It would be nice to invite some big
name entertainers to perform here in Dyeland a few times a year.
Sounds great! Y'know, JABB members are really wonderful people
and I've been blessed to spend time with them but... umm...
(blushes) I mean I'm just not... (all out turning red
now) Some of them are very devoted and, well, that's all very
flattering but... Can you help me? Or, umm, them?
Uhh... (looks rather helplessly at Karen)
(Karen flashes a knowing smile at Andrew and places her hand lightly on
his to let him know she understands) Perhaps I might start a new
support group for those citizens of Dyeland that are a bit "over the
top" regarding their feelings towards you. This might be a good time to
remind them of the 12 step program we offer. Of course this would be
totally voluntary on their part. This would also be free to those who
choose to participate.
(looks relieved) Well, thank you so much for agreeing to meet
with me Karen. I really do appreciate it and can tell JABB will
be in good hands with you and JenniAnn. Anything more you'd like
ask or say?
I would like to say again that it has been an honor to meet you
finally. I'd also like to let the citizens of Dyeland know that I take
this position seriously. I'm very excited to be working with you and
JenniAnn and getting reacquainted with the citizens of Dyeland. (On the
spur of the moment and without thinking about it, Karen gives Andrew a
big hug, smiles, and waves good-bye to Andrew)
