By George Grattan: 
Dear Classmates: 
Be Careful What You Ask For Department: Many classmates have responded to recent calls here and in our class letter for more green slips and more information. Taking the cake and the bakery it came from this time, however, is Katie Connorton, who really ought to consider private investigation as a career. Katie writes: "Sue Stewart Durkin and her husband, John '90, had a baby boy named John "Jack" in April. Erin Cahill O'Hearn and her husband, John, had a baby boy, also named John, in February. Caroline Kersten Delaney and Mike Delaney recently bought a house in Manchester, N.H. Kate Carrington just bought an apartment in New York City and is working at Spin Magazine. Meg O'Hara and John Sasso bought a house in Long Beach, L.I. - John is graduating from Hofstra University in May with an M.B.A. and Meg continues to work at HBO. Last year her documentary Roe V. Wade (which she co-wrote, co-directed and co-produced) was bought and aired on CineMax.  Tere Matta and her husband Ian had a baby girl named Sophia. Stephanie Bormann is still with Hewlett-Packard in San Diego and just bought a condo. Anne Riley, who is back in Seattle, has graduated from law school, and is clerking for a judge. Kellie Donnelly left the U.S. Department of Interior recently and is now with the Washington, D.C., firm of Verner and Liipfert. Caitlyn Gilhooly Parker and her husband have moved to Seattle, where he's stationed with the Air Force. Katie Morris, who is living in New York City, works for Sumitomo Corp., and is in her second year at Stern Business School." Whew! It seems that the Katies (Connorton and Morris) garnered much of the preceding information enjoying springtime margaritas on a balcony in D.C., which just proves that a blender and an open ear are valuable commodities in that town. Katie (Connorton) and her husband, Mike Fogarty, provided the balcony and the blender. Mike's working at America Online and has just finished an M.B.A. program at the University of Maryland; Katie's graduating from American University with a masters in (you guessed it) broadcast journalism this July. Thanks for all the info, Katie. Megan Clark writes to let us know that she's now practicing labor/employment law in her hometown of Cincinnati, and that she recently spent some time in Paris with Eileen Hattan (who was taking a break - or is that a junket? - from her job working for Senator Kohl of Wisconsin). Megan's also bought a house and, having turned 30 like so many of us, is "finally accepting that adulthood has arrived." (Did I miss the memo on that?) C'mon Megan, you'll always have Paris! Want a second opinion in the D.C. area? Check with any of these classmates: Amy Burke is in her medical residency at Georgetown University, and Tim Donahue is spending his third year of urology residency at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Tim reports that Mark Miller and Mike Biondi are also at Bethesda.  Tim and his wife, Christine (who's a pathologist at Johns Hopkins University), seems to manage a mini-menagerie at home: two dogs and six fish.  (That's either a line from a Dr. Seuss book or a great name for an alternative Rock band.) Being Shown the Money is Doug Lilly, who just became an agent with the National Football League. Doug, also an attorney, represents artists and business managers in the entertainment industry, so he's going to have to sue me for the Jerry Maguire copyright infringement above. Doug tells us that he sees Gerry Giaimo in court on occasion, but declines to elaborate; we can only assume the worst: Gerry is a courthouse groupie. Anne Marie Lizzi is now the production manager of Time Warner Advertising in Albany, N.Y., and serves as the Albany Chapter President of American Women in Radio and Television. Anne has run into Lisa (Duffy) Dilley, Mary Frances Carney, and her old roommate, Kim Davis-Basso, over the past few months. And rounding out the general bits of news is a guy who has no excuse for spelling his boss' name wrong: Joe Spillane, formerly an A.D.A. in Worcester, has joined the Worcester firm of Spillane and Spillane, LLP. When caught performing an unauthorized musical number with some wacky neighbors named Fred and Ethel down at the courthouse, Joe was told he had a lot of 'spillane-in to do.  (Hmmm, first I swipe a Cuba Gooding Jr. line, then throw a Ricky Ricardo reference . geez! There's almost a motif going here.) Weddings, Weddings, Oh We've Got Your Weddings Right Here: Tom Weber D.M.D. and his wife, Elizabeth Ann, were married in Florida on Nov. 28, and then sank their teeth into a honeymoon in Costa Rica. (Thus almost giving me a Cuban pun trifecta, but not quite.) Tom raves about the cigars, the rain forests, and the waves of Costa Rica, but wasn't thrilled with the roads. Well, Tom, the road doesn't always rise up to meet you, sometimes it plunges you off a switchback into a ravine. Chris Farrell and Kurt Grochowski were married by Holy Cross' Fred Enman, S.J., in September 1998 and had Ann Farrell Leslie, Maura Damiata, Rose Baker, Maureen Cavanaugh, Roseanne Achin-Houseman and Caroline Edward Kurzwell as attendants and guests . Marty Teevan and Shevaun Mellifont were married in Holmdel, N.J., on Apr. 17 . Julie Solinski joined Robert J. Faller Jr. at the altar on Dec. 5 in White Plains, N.Y. Thomas B. Miller married Wendy Ann Messina in Fairfield, Conn. on May 23, 1998 . Rosemarie DeCicco and David Crowley '92 were wed on Oct. 18, . and the dual '91 couple of Lisa Dunn and Sean Mckeon made things legal on June 27, 1998 in St. Joseph Chapel. And now, the moment that none of you are waiting for: an update on the contest for the most unusual greenslip. Given the absolutely underwhelming number of entries thus far, I've decided to extend the judging period - look for the winners (and losers worthy of honorable mention) next time.
