employee spotlight_Andrea Jaggers

The first thing you need to know about Andrea is how to pronounce her name. And no, I'm not going to tell you. That would take all the fun out of watching you get it wrong. A little advice if you do get it! Along with being a grammatical genius she is super organized. This is evident by the stack of Post-It notes arranged by size and color in accordance with the color wheel and pens, pencils and highlighters arranged by size on her unbelievably tidy shelves. She is also a fitness fanatic! She works out an average of 163 hours a week and keeps the rest of the office motivated and in shape by organizing fitness contests and excursions.

color (kuler)

Do you know color? Be honest. If you answered yes...well...good for you. If you answered no...welcome to the club! Choices regarding color often seem rather mystical, like shaking a magic 8 ball and hoping it says "all signs point to yes." All too often we base our decisions on "it looks right...doesn't it?" Let’s face it; most of us are really bad with color. We'd like to think we aren't but we’d just being lying to ourselves. More often than not we are just playing a game of 'go fish’ with a box of paint samples. Anyone have a Sherman Williams Cajun Red? Whether you are color blind or use it as an excuse for poor color selection there is hope. Check out, it will make you look like a genius!

What do you call that dance move?

Have you ever seen more uncoordinated dancers in your life? I've got a crisp 5 spot that says no. Whether you were embarrassing yourself on the dance floor or were laughing at the people embarrassing themselves, a good time was had by all at this years WP Christmas Party.

Did I mention that there was karaoke, I know...I cringed when I heard it too. For my money it doesn't get any better than our own Jim Williams singing the classic country western tune "Okie from Muskogee" by the legendary Mr. Merle Haggard. Jim's "mello smooth", slightly off key rendition moved some to tears and others were left puzzled. You see, unless you were born before 1962 (or your parents loved to dust of their old 45's every Sunday afternoon) you have no idea who Merle Haggard even is.

Last but certainly not least was the much anticipated (and feared by some) annual WP Christmas skit. This is where the elders of WP insist that the newbies do incredibly embarrassing skits as some sort of quasi right of passage in order to be considered "one of the gang." Suffice it to say that the old timers seriously underestimated just how resourceful the wily rookies were. That's right, we got you good...we got you real good.
