You wanna go where people know, people are all the same

Also in my local headlines, my sister Meagan applied for and got a job as a Desk Assistant on campus. Yesterday, she found out that she was going to be working at my old DA stomping grounds: Carson. While I am happy for her and confident that she won’t be uber-poor next year, I’m mostly happy for me. This means I know where to go for free DVD rentals. “Hey Meg, can you rent the first two seasons of Sopranos for me?”. Kidding of course, I’m mostly happy for her.

I actually really liked working as a Desk assistant at the U of O, despite the connotation of a continued career through housing. I could work on my homework, watch movies, play corny computer games… that was the life. You could also get a good slice of everybody’s life working as a DA, you saw who was not paying their university bills or who had been in trouble the previous weekend. I’m sure she’ll have fun, delivering mail, renting out videos, making room changes. My only regret is that Pat Payne won’t be there, so Meg could bare witness to his legendary throwing up on the recycling bin, post-carson gorging. So many memories.
