Guy’s forehead inexplicably dirty all day
Friends and co-workers of East Nashville’s Gary Bauer noticed all day Wednesday that his forehead had a dark smudge on it.
“I saw him at a midmorning meeting and took him aside and whispered that he should go wash his face,” a concerned co-worker says. “He just said thanks and went on into the meeting.”
“I thought maybe he’d had to change a flat tire or something on the way to work,” another co-worker says. “We were meeting with some pretty important clients and I thought he’d want to know, but he just kind of smiled. It was weird.”
$7.8 million required to improve cheerleader surveillance at GEC
The ability to spy on the cheerleaders’ locker room will be greatly enhanced by the proposed $7.8 million improvements to the Gaylord Entertainment Center, sources say. Since the original cheerleader spy-cams were installed when the arena was built in 1996, technology has far surpassed the GEC’s current setup.
“Right now we’ve got these cheesy little black-and-white cameras hooked to a standard household VCR,” laments one GEC employee. “It’s 10-year-old technology, and every arena in the country is further ahead than we are with this. We badly need an upgrade.”
Nashville not talking about Nashville Is Talking
A quick lunchtime survey of Nashvillians at several restaurants found nobody talking about Nashville Is Talking, the WKRN-Channel 2 blog that links to a variety of other local blogs.
“No, we weren’t talking about Nashville Is Talking,” says Nancy Karlotti, a diner at J. Alexander’s on West End. “We were talking about stuff that happened today at work.”
“We were talking about that Arabs-taking-over-the-ports thing,” says Dylan Vannoy, who was having a sandwich with co-workers at Vandyland.
Another diner, Laura Hernandez, says she had other things to talk with her friends about. “We weren’t talking about Nashville Is Talking, and we weren’t talking about Tiny Cat Pants or Pith in the Wind either,” she says. “And we definitely weren’t talking about that Fabricator jerk.”
