Thanks to everyone who participated in this month’s TJRA Book Club: the monthly club dedicated to the appreciation and understanding of books for TJRA employees.
Overall, TJRA Book Club was a great success! Despite a few setbacks, we had a ton of fun discussing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by foreign author Stieg Larsson. Many different themes from the book were discussed and we all enjoyed the home-made lemon bars that Sheila from Derivatives brought in. (Thanks, Sheila. We’ll miss you.) Talk about yummy in our tummys! We all love brain food (the book we read and discussed) but food for our stomachs, tongues, and mouths is even better!
The high point of the evening was definitely when Dave in Natal Care successfully resuscitated Stu from Magnification & Alignment with that crazy chest-punching thing. That sure was a close call, and we all breathed a sigh of relief when Stu coughed up that black bile-looking substance and “rejoined the living” as they say. Let’s just say Dave earned his extra lemon bars this time!
We’d love to get more people to come to the next TJRA Book Club when we’ll be discussing Expression Wash, Stain And Scan User Manual For Cartridge Arrays by Dr. Jerome Masowicz! Especially since a few of this month’s attendees won’t be able to make it next time, due to the unfortunate incident with the lemon bars and the acid and the termites and the hypodermic needles and the German fellow and the kiln. And the strobe light and the collapsed ceiling. And the other German fellow and the chemical fire and the race riot and the vortex and the lemon bars. So come on down to HR today and sign up for Book Club if you’re not attending one of the funerals being held in the Main Lobby. Because “TJRA READS!”
