We’ve Lost Someone to Highland Park Village, But We’ve Added a Highland Park Graduate

Highland Park Village has added a concierge to its staff, and the shopping center’s management stole her from my staff.¬†In this newly created position, Caitlin Adams will be in charge of coordinating events, assisting clients, writing for the Village’s blog and magazine, and working as a liaison between management, tenants, and customers.

Apparently, the top brass over there became enamored with Caitlin when she was interviewing some of them for a story. Well, that’s the last time I send a friendly face to that dump. In fact, we’re about to launch a series of investigative articles exposing the dark, seedy underbelly of Highland Park Village.

Kidding, kidding. We still love you, HPV, despite your awkward acronym. We love all of your tenants. And, most of all, we love your advertising revenue. Besides, thanks to his new position with the Republican National Committee, I’m pretty sure Ray Washburne could have me killed any time he wants.

As they say, every time a door closes, a window opens. Caitlin’s departure has allowed me to add another Highland Park High School graduate to our staff. The lovely and talented Margaux Anbouba joined the team this week, upping our Scots total to three. (The others are Elizabeth Ygartua and Dorothy Wood.) It’s nothing like the old days, when I believe 10 of the original 12 employees of Park Cities People were Highland Park alums, but I’ll take it.

    Whatever Dan. First Kersten joined up with HPV and stopped posting unless it was a comment in regards to HPV. Now Caitlin….you are next…(insert suspenseful jaws tune).

    Ha ha! I still post, Avid Reader, you just don’t know my nom de blog! We are so happy to have Caitlin here and look forward to the programs she’ll develop here. Thank you for being gracious, Dan. Everyone who has ever worked for you has said nothing but good things about you. That’s a real compliment!

    Dan was the worst boss I ever had. He’s a menace, a megalomaniac, a tyrant without equal. He’s such a monster that he recommended me for *other* jobs while I was still working for him. That should even things out, Kersten.

    I think he WAS all that and more, Bradford, but after the unfortunate “kids laying on the grass at HPHS” episode and the ridiculous backlash that came from it, Dan’s become very docile and kitten-like.

    Bradford – the way to compliment and give praise to Dan is through voicemail….or at least I thought given this past weekend.

    Initialism, not acronym. Yeah, I know, nobody cares. Newspaper editors should care.

    @Z. Acronym is widely used to include initialism, and is defined that way in some dictionaries, according to Wikipedia.
