You might not want the Drama Queens and the Party Girls, at least during the day, as they would be distracting. And the Addicts usually just sit around eating all the snacks. But the rest of the group are pretty hard workers. If you can keep them busy for a while so I can clear out the pages of email in my box, I would be truly greatful.
