Just one thing: Fanellis on fridays to garner all the gossip--openings, parties. Was surviving on adjunct teaching jobs--always worried I wouldn't get enough. One time Mike Fanelli came up to me and said "Don't worry, you can always work here" I was SO relieved! Many more things too...
Tell you the truth, I loved it all!
OMG--I have to choose ONE? Well, here goes: looking out the window late one night at a deserted street when suddenly a man came walking down on stilts.
Carrying two by fours down the street, a tour bus comes by, loud speaker goes on "Now if you look to our right, you will see a typical resident of the area in typical clothing..." Who me? In my torn second hand jeans? (who knew they'd become a fashion statement)
