Last Night’s CCSC: A Prelude to Pie
Written by Bwog Staff
Satow Room Bureau Chief Martha Turewicz attended last night’s CCSC meeting.
It’s that special time of year again, and last night’s CCSC meeting was infused with some of that special holiday cheer.
The meeting began, as it so often does, with President George Krebs pounding out a peppy little drumbeat on the desk.
Notably absent (at least, until near the end of the meeting, when he tried to enter the room through a part of the glass wall that was not, in fact, the door) was VP of Policy Adil Ahmed, who was bidding his parents farewell at the airport before they embarked on a hajj to Saudi Arabia. “A little bit of a higher calling than a CCSC meeting”, quipped Krebs.
Another higher calling than a CCSC meeting: the free pie event in Broadway, in concession to which the meeting would be ‘kicked out a few minutes early” (again, the ever-quotable Krebs).
Further Krebs-ing: since we are “nearing Christmas-time”, which is a little “teary-eye inducing”, CCSC decided to host secret Santas, into which yours truly will be “up in the mix.”
And what’s a holiday without cards? Krebs suggested future resolutions to congratulate his friend and freshly-minted Rhodes Scholar Jisung Park, perhaps in card form. He suggested that the same honor be extended to Dean Quigley, who will be leaving us after this year.
On a less festive note, Sean Udell noted an exciting new development in McBain, namely that wastebaskets will be installed in each stall of the female restrooms.
Such exciting updates are now sent out by Krebs via e-mail, a development which considerably shortens the meetings (something we can all celebrate).
Despite the newfound brevity, Krebs still noted a certain ennui among the crowd: “Everyone has a glazed, ‘pie’ look right now.”
