#69: What's Happening - A Footnote...

I need to add a footnote, of sorts, to my 2009 Things To Remember post. I realized this weekend that I managed to forget one of the biggest things that happened during '09 in the micro-universe that is the GOT. And how could I?

How could I forget Andrea?

No, not the Andrea Doria...

Andrea the Diver! Well, I suppose "Andrea the Penguin" might be more accurate, if it didn't sound so strange.

While Chris was off on his five month walkabout, Andrea - an intrepid penguin staffer - came 'upstairs' to fill his shoes (hence this being a FOOTnote...) in the GOT. And though Chris was missed by us all - it's equally important to say how great it was to have Andrea with us for five months. She was always smiling, always good natured, and dove like, well, like a penguin. Not to mention her mad skills at trivia!

So though she's now back down in penguin land, and her smiling face can still be seen through a sea of webbed feet, feathers and flightless wings, she has cemented her place in history as a GOT diver and should top the list of 2009 Things To Remember.

Safe diving.
