My Life In A Nutshell:
I have an unholy fascination with license plates. Unfortunately, plates don't have much chance to generate random words. Three numbers and three letters means the only words you'll get have three letters (Vanity plates don't count.)
See? Unholy fascination. Who notices this kind of stuff?
I have two cats, Snickers and Widget. Snickers is fond of punching holes in paper or cardboard with her teeth. Widget prefers shredding it. Now all I need is one that collates.
I love thrift store shopping and dumpster diving. I'm currently converting someone's old front door that was chunked (a VERY solid and heavy door) into a monster bookcase. Which brings me to: I read. A LOT. If I'm not eating with someone, I have to be reading. If I've forgotten my book (which doesn't happen often), I will read the backs of sugar packets at the restaurant.
I am a member of Mensa, which means I am by definition a "genius". This comes in handy in any argument with my parents that ends in, "What were you thinking?"
However, it doesn't take a genius to figure out to turn your trash cans upside down so they don't fill up with water when it rains.
I have yet to master that one.
Feed me chocolate, and I will love you! (Or you can just
give me chocolate, and I will still love you.)
These guys are just as hilarious as their characters are. TBS' new show, Men At Work, premiers tonight at 9pm, right after The Big Bang Theory, with back to back episodes.
Is it just me, or does Danny Masterson look like a cross between Curt Copeland and Justin Timberlake in this pic? (He plays Milo, the guy who's dumped in the very beginning of the show.)
Adam Busch is convinced that his character, Neal, is modeled after Seth Green. Breckin Meyer, the brains behind the show and the executive producer, said that the characters are all based on good friends of his. Seth Green and Breckin have been buddies forever.
James Lesure just oozes that easy-going ladies man kind of appeal. He plays Gibbs, who's a photographer at the magazine where all four guys work. And he's a total ladies man in the show.
Michael Cassidy plays Tyler, the metrosexual stylish feature writer whose apartment is the scene of one of Gibb's hookups in the pilot episode. The only hiccup is the hookup is with Tyler's cleaning lady...who gives Gibbs the key to Tyler's apartment. You know, just in case he ever needs it for other hookups.
After meeting the cast, TBS threw an awesome launch party on the rooftop of the London Hotel in LA. If you've ever wondered what a Hollywood launch party looks like, this is it!
We've got the results from a study that covers pretty familiar material . . . men want one-night stands with wilder girls, but want to settle down with women who have more substance. Meh. We've heard all that before.
BUT . . . researchers at the University of Texas used the answers to identify the main signs that make a man THINK a woman is EASY. Now THAT'S interesting.
Here are five of the signs men look for . . . sometimes subconsciously . . . when they're trying to find a woman to get-it-on with that night:
-Acting and dressing goofy or childish.
-Looking extra DRUNK.
-Licking your lips a lot, or doing a lot of lip biting.
-Touching your own breasts.
The kids at Abby Kelley Foster Charter School were told they were filming testimonials for their school. What was really happening was a series of video bombs by their teachers, dancing behind them.
In case you missed it, SNL's 100th digital short:
What happnes when you combine the buttered side of toast, which always ends up buttered side on the ground when dropped, and a cat, which always lands on its feet?
Want to confront your husband because you think he's cheating on you? You should know this going in. There are TWO WORDS he might say that are the single biggest giveaway that, yes, he's having an affair.
And they are . . . "You're crazy."
If you accuse someone who's not cheating, he'll be hurt and mad . . . but his instinct won't be to say you're crazy. His instinct will be to figure out why you thought he was cheating and reassure you that he's faithful.
When someone IS cheating, they want to make you doubt YOURSELF instead. So by saying "you're crazy" over and over, they're trying to make you question your own judgment.
Arthur was injured as a paratrooper in the Gulf War. His doctors told him he'd never walk unassisted again. For 15 years, he believed it...until he decided he was in charge of his own fate.
This guy decided to show off how different waves of sound affect the way water looks. He can make it look as though it's frozen in mid-air, or even flowing upward.
Tourists who visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa invariably pose with their hands held up so it looks like they're holding up the tower in the picture. These guys decided all of them needed a high five while their hands were up in the air.
#1.) Stop Using Fake Tanner. According to some experts, your boss is more likely to view you as self-absorbed if your skin doesn't look natural. In other words, your boss might not give you a promotion if you look like Snooki.
#2.) Swallow Your Pride and Start Sucking Up. A study in the "Journal of Management Studies" showed that people who brown-nose DO get promoted more often. And they also tend to be happier at their jobs.
#3.) Say "Thank You" When Your Boss Gives You Feedback. This goes hand-in-hand with brown-nosing, but you should do it even when you don't want to.
A new study at the USC Marshall School of Business found that when you say "thank you" after hearing something critical from your boss, it makes them think you're more intelligent and more competent than they did before.
#4.) Cut Your Bangs. Or at least make sure they’re not in your face while you're at work. If you're a woman, apparently bangs that cover your eyes or obscure part of your face can be a signal that you have something to hide.
Or worse, it can make it seem like you're trying to be flirtatious, which isn't how you want to come across at the office.
I'm torn between thinking the lion was trying to eat the kid, and trying to pick it up like it was her cub.
Imagine trying to pass a part of a driving test that includes texting while driving. Here's how it would go.
I can't imagine someone hasn't adopted both of these dogs already. The dog who's been blind since birth, and the other dog met while at the shelter, who took to him instantly, and guides him around.
