I just called Shannon, a colleague here at MTV, and we had a long conversation, in which I asked about her job, some projects she's working on, etc. I ran the names of a few companies by her, just to see what she thought of them. I asked how her boss is doing. I asked about the view out her window. I asked why, when she picked up the phone and heard my voice, how come she wasn't more excited to hear from me... And then, right after I hung up, Patty informed me that I was talking to a different Shannon. No way! Yes way. I just had a long talk with someone I thought was someone else. I called to apologize, but I got Shannon's voicemail, so I left her a message explaining what an idiot I am. Her rely via email: Dear Ross, Got your vmail! Fortunately, Patty was on it right away so I didn't have to spend too much time figuring out how to get around this:) You have made my Friday vastly more entertaining and I will be screening my calls more carefully moving forward. Have a great weekend and get some rest - you're working too hard, clearly. Shannon
I heard about Anni Rossi from my friend, Shannon Connolly.
I can't stop thinking how cool it would be to see her perform here in the office. So Anni, next time you're in America, will you please come jam here in the office?
