They're Smoking Crack, I'm Smoking Crack

I'm watching Platinum Weddings on WE. I have to admit it to tell this story. The bride's name is Mili Icecreamwala. That's what the graphic said. I'm still not even sure that wasn't someone trying to make fun of her name. And her wedding cost $1.2 million. So we're both smoking crack.

Stick A Fork In Me...

I tease my husband that ever since he's become more of a manager-type, he's started talking like a press release. But honestly, he's started talking more like this, Seth Godin's Encyclopedia of Business Cliches. My favorite has always been "highly leveraged."

Local News Hires Stupid Woman To Anchor News

Tons of things are bothering me lately about the media, but just the previews for Anchorwoman have me squirming. They've hired her because she's beautiful and they know she's an idiot.

No More "Couldn't Be Reached For Comment"

Google News Allowing Story Participants To Comment

That's really cool, but also kinda scary. I don't really want the news to turn into blogs. I still like that separation of church and state.

How To Ask For A Raise

Wouldn't you like some good advice on how to ask for a raise? How about a reality show on how to ask for one. Of course! Is it possible that no one has thought of this before? TLC is on it, and the channel has been running the commercials. But I can't find mention of it on its Web site. Tune in Tuesday, August 14th, 8pm.

Where Did The Web Come From?
