If you can find it in your heart, please pause for a moment and send positive karma toward this group:
With a record number of job seekers this year, it's a pretty lengthy session.
Those of us not in the meeting are taking entirely too much pleasure in our freedom today. I'm a little ashamed to admit I've text-messaged Jason several times asking how it's going and informing him about the lovely weather today.
The latest response: "We're on J." Now, I don't want to read anything into this, but since it was not followed by a little happy-face emoticon thingy, I'm guessing the festiveness of the get-together has faded.
Poor Eric snapped this photo on his iPhone and emailed it to me.
I think if we studied the photo from above we'd realize all the Mountain Dew bottles are arranged in a giant "SOS."

One of Matt's departments, as GM, is entertainment. So he goes to the auditions. He comes back from these all Hollywood, every third word is "lovin'."
He's lovin' this one's voice and lovin' that one's personality. He's lovin' how the cast is pulling together.
What are you, some kind of McDonald's commercial?
Matt just laughs and tells me to "get with it, dude."
This from the guy who still pines for Cindy Brady.
So when I saw a media lead that a reporter in Canada was looking for quotes from folks who love their jobs, Matt was top of mind. Totally.
I heard back from the reporter this morning. She received hundreds and hundreds of responses...and Matt's made the cut.
Needless to say, he's lovin' the attention (and yes, they saved the best 'til last).
Okay, so let's make this a two-fer. Bryan over at Amusement Park World recently posted this glowing review of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari.

Our hometown (almost) boy left the county in 1830 and went on to greatness. And today's the bicentennial of his birth. (Abraham Lincoln, not Charles Darwin.)
In honor of this, the folks over at Lincoln Amphitheatre are holding a contest on YouTube. You can try to win tickets to their new show, LINCOLN, and also to Holiday World.
All you have to do is post a video of you or a friend reciting the Gettysburg Address.
There are a few videos posted so far; there's a lot of creativity out there, though, so let's fill the page. Maybe even a future star of LINCOLN will appear.
In honor of the day, here's our friend Andy doing his best impersonation.
Andy knows, though, that he can't win ... being an employee of Holiday World and all. He just likes wearing the hat and beard.
