Ryan was quoting Leeroy Jenkins in his infamous YouTube video and said, quite loudly, "I'm sorry - I'm so stoned"...because that's what Leeroy said to his gaming buddies during a Halo battle online.
So Brenda heard him and asked him if he was stoned...because she thought he was being plain old Ryan talking to the rest of the newsroom. That's how rumors get started.
The newsroom is being slightly re-arranged today to accommodate our new intern, Kirby. Kirby is pretty cool. She doesn't know I blog about the newsroom yet and will likely be writing about her from now on. I believe she will give me some interesting material to work with. She has plenty of attitude. Typical writer.
