In our newsroom we have an assignment board that lists what stories or projects each reporter is working on. For example it might say "Bill: Dog Fighting Ring. Pat: Indigent Defense Fund" etc...
We also sometimes are assigned to come up with stories to air in the upcoming week -- a sort of evergreen or undated piece that can run at any time.
We recently upgraded our assignment board to an electronic display. One of my co-workers from the music department ambled in this week and noticed the new display. He studied the assignments and then said (in his very British accent) "I'm so glad the assignment board gives us all an update on Laurie's relationship status."
I looked up to see what he was talking about and realized he was right. There on the assignment board it said "Laurie: Undated."
