Amanda Barnes
Buddies gather round, it’s time to cheer
For a buddy who brings joy whenever she’s near.
She’s smart, she’s kind, she’s allergic to gluten
Do we think she’s amazing? YOU’RE DARN TOOTIN’

She wears many hats and tracks every note
When it comes to writer’s rooms, she’s the GOAT.
Now let’s bring her on down, so everyone will know
Amanda Barnes is this month’s Spirit of the Stoodio!

Nathalie Eckert
Some Buddies are so great, they become renowned,
Through Camera, Production, Edit and Sound.
You’d thoroughly agree had you beheld her,
This woman’s “Nacho Libre,” – so christened by Helder

Velvet shoes and glasses, her style’s a treat.
This USC Trojan sips her whiskey neat.
This Buddy deserves three cheers, we assert –
So congratulate this month’s Spirit of the Stoodio, Nathalie Eckert!

Congrats Nathalie and Amanda! You rock that totem!
