Default New staff... will it ever end?

SPLASH!

That's right, no door sound this time, because we had to take a boat trip on the S.S. Adventure Gamers (our motto: "Iceberg? What iceberg?") to continue this insatiable hiring frenzy. That sound you're hearing is the waves crashing off the west coast of Canada.

Climbing aboard today and straight onto the Underground deck is Deirdra Kiai. We plan to put Deirdra right to work, since she's been lounging around on a Cruise Ship and comes to us fully rested. (Or did I misunderstand that somehow?) I know, I know, Underground is getting crowded, but it's a universal truth that you can never have too many women Canadians great writers on staff, so we're thrilled to have Deirdra with us. Besides, it's a long ride home, and the gangplank could still get some use if any scallywags get out of hand.

Welcome, Deirdra!

Oh, and you can find Deirdra lurking around the forums under the name "Squinky".

I feel so loved.

Hopefully, Celine Dion hasn't snuck aboard the S.S. Adventure Gamers to sing during the end credits.

Yeah. 'Cos, you know, we're all misogynistic idiots who couldn't possibly deem a woman worthy of welcome .

Or, perhaps, it's just that we missed the topic or welcomed her elsewhere.

Either way, welcome !

Or maybe everyone's just tired of new staff announcements.

This is a surprise? All the guys are tongue-tied and staring at their shoes with their usual display of panache around women.

BTW, on behalf of my otherwise-speechless fraternity of guys, I welcomed her first.

We're just all stunned that she managed to escape from the kitchen.
