Screwy Computey

The internet is on the fritz, so who knows how much blogging we'll be able to do before this site goes down...

The Skev Report - We have "elfed" Skev! Check it out on our Facebook page or click here. Skevvy Lou Who popped in today not only to update us on the growth of his beard, but also to share his MTEL triumph. He feels that he did well on the test, so congrats to him. He played with Stella, chatted with us and watched the now famous video of Marconi Radio. Pretty soon he was off to U.S. Taekwondo and we don't expect to see him again until after T-Giving.

Josh has started stripping wallpaper in the main office. Woo-hoo!

Only a few more days to vote on the Beverly Superbowl poll. Come on, show your school spirit! To the right, bottom of the green box.

Say a Little Prayer for Skev!

Josh left a copy of the Oriental Trading catalog on my desk yesterday morning, open to a page advertising “Relaxable Pickles.”

Apparently, Molly is reverting back to Snooki mode (leopard-print dress and now pickles!) and planning to buy these stress-relievers for x-mas gifts. Josh is worried that next she’s going to ask for her own tanning booth. GTL and Merry Christmas, Molly!

The Skev Report – Skev-a-reeno popped by and he is sticking with Beard-vember. He's trimmed a few stray whiskers, but is rocking a much fuller array of facial hair. Skev’s taking the MTELs tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed or say a little prayer for him, Dionne Warwick-style. He’s looking forward to his 5th year BHS reunion and all the after parties that are sure to follow. We watched a slew of YouTube clips, and laughed our heads off. Speaking of clips, I found this short one of Skev at this year's VIP Dinner. Enjoy!

Last week’s poll indicated that on Thanksgiving, most of you plan to watch football, some will sleep in and only one will run the Wild Turkey 5K. No one is preparing the feast, so maybe we need to run more cooking classes.

New poll on Beverly football, to the right in the green box… black, black, black, black, black, let's go black...

No Shave November

The Skev Report - We were blessed with a visit from the Skev Piper this morning. He almost immediately declared that he is sporting a beard because it is "No Shave November" and then clarified that it only applies to guys, ladies don't have to participate. He's considering becoming a member of another club, maybe the ICC or the Gloucester Elks. Mike showed us his new western, snap button shirt, which we all liked. Everything is going well at US Taekwondo and he has been busy catering, as well. He is so busy that he only recently caught up on the social scene with Josh and his buds. Skev has challenged me to go to Kitty's on Thanksgivign Eve - my most unfavorite time to publicly socialize. We'll see...

THE PENALTY BOX - Is in da house. Is this good news or bad news? You decide.

Have a safe weekend, y'all. The weather is supposed to be very nice, so get outside to your favorite Beverly park!

Tomorrow is Veteran's Day and our office will be closed. We'll be back on Friday, 11/12.

New Thanksgiving poll, to the right, lower part of the green box.

Our last poll was interesting, showing that many people DO give candy to high schoolers, for fear of having their cars egged. What about the Montserrat kids who were canvassing the Cove neighborhood? Is that a case of poor college kids or Halloween enthusiasts? I don't know.

Under the section “Remarks you would like Santa to make to your child during their phone call” a parent writes: "...please keep trying to eat vegetables." Sounds like Santa Josh must threaten to leave this kid carrots and celery, no chocolate. Poor kid!

Johnny Be Good!

Holidays are here and North Pole Calling forms are rolling in! What's that, you ask? A wonderful, FREE Bev Rec tradition where our staff act like Santa and call unsuspecting children, wishing them a Merry Christmas and promising toys if they are good boys and girls. Guardians fill out a form, describing their kids and the behaviors they would like our Santas to help them reinforce or avoid. It can get pretty funny, thus the new blog feature…

Under the section “Remarks you would like Santa to make to your child during their phone call” a parent writes: "I hear you have been potty training." I have to be here when Skev Claus says that…

There is still time to vote in the latest poll. Look to the right...

Josh has painted the door! Woo-hoo!
