I like working here in “Connecticut’s Newsroom.” It’s a busy place. Since we’re a TV station, website and the Hartford Courant it’s by far the largest newsroom in the state! A newsroom like this is steeped in tradition.
I got this via email yesterday. It’s a newsroom tradition!
Just a reminder…..
Tomorrow (Wed.) is our annual newsroom holiday party.
Please bring a potluck dessert to share.
See attached flyer.
Happy holidays !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In case you’re wondering my place of business is just like yours. Throw out some food and they’re all vultures!
It was just a little crazy with cakes and cookies and pies. It was too much even for an overeater like me! There are delights I’d love to sample if only they’ll keep until tomorrow.
Eat-a-thons like ours today are the grist of holiday news stories like this one from the New York Times.
[S]everal studies now show that the average weight gain during the winter holidays is just one pound.
The news isn’t all good. Most people don’t ever lose the pound of weight they put on during the holidays, according to a report in The New England Journal of Medicine. Since the average weight gain during adulthood is about one to two pounds a year, that means much of midlife weight gain can be explained by holiday eating.
