Yeah, I got the impression that while she was giving her canned movie publicity spiel they both just realized how stupid the movie premise sounded and started giggling like kids instead of taking it all seriously. I bet there are some big wigs (who probs pitched the idea totally straight faced, etc.) that are less… » 1/22/15 10:58am 1/22/15 10:58am

I am the parent of a 13 year old. This does not surprise me one bit. I encourage my kid to be friends with whoever he wants, happily ferry him around to hang out, etc. I always feel lucky when I meet a parent who is groovy to hang with, because most of them, at best, I have nothing in common with and at worst, are… » 1/19/15 2:49pm 1/19/15 2:49pm

This flu season (all kinds) is horrible. One of my co-workers puked at work the week before Christmas break; it hit her so hard and fast she had to use her wastebasket, didn't even have time to get to the bathroom. And same thing, the smell filled the entire office building, it was so gross, way worse then regular… » 1/03/15 7:11am 1/03/15 7:11am

I'll never forgive Arthur Blank for his senseless, classless move in letting the news "leak" that they'd hired a consulting firm before the game yesterday. What a dick. Totally demoralized the entire team. Smitty may have already been out the door but the players loved him, that move guaranteed we'd lose. » 12/29/14 10:09am 12/29/14 10:09am

Nothing to some of the tales I've read on here but still put a major ding in what was shaping up to be a lovely Christmas. For the past three months, my kid has been bugging all parental units (parents and step-parents) for an iPad Touch. Now, my household has had a pretty tight year, money-wise, and I am also really… » 12/26/14 9:02am 12/26/14 9:02am

Yep. I learned about them when our company had to do work out in Kansas. The project manager included a bit about them in the cultural context section of the report, and the client had an absolute fit. He was nervous about anything holding up approval for the project and made our PM take it out, never mind that it'd… » 12/15/14 1:27pm 12/15/14 1:27pm

I need this on a continual loop through the holidays for morale. Why does this time of year bring out the monster/asshole/idiot in so many people? It should be all boughs of holly, pretty lights, good cheer (alcohol) and yummy food. This stuff isn't hard, why do people go to such lengths to make it unhappy? Genuine… » 12/11/14 3:35pm 12/11/14 3:35pm

"I don't know exactly what did happen, but I know that's not what happened." A direct contradiction, mid-sentence, said with a no doubt straight face and complete sincerity. This side of the debate can't even maintain logical sequence or coherence. Jesus, our country is fucked. » 12/03/14 10:29am 12/03/14 10:29am

I'm thankful for my health and the good health of my family and my job (very grateful to be decently employed). This stands for every year I enjoy these things. This year, I am especially thankful for all of the fantastic books I've read; seems like a new and amazing book was published every week. For anyone looking… » 11/27/14 9:13am 11/27/14 9:13am
