Drama Drama Drama Drama Drama Drama Drama Drama Drama

Kelly and Richard are both crazy. Flat out. Let me back up. A coworker of mine, Richard, dated a girl named Kelly. A few months ago, my husband's best friend saw Richard and Kelly at an arena football game, and asked me to relay a message to him: "RUN LIKE HELL." Apparently, our best man went on two...

Phishing Scams--Do Not Delete!

Yesterday I received in my inbox an email promising millions of dollars if I provide my personal information to some random hotmail account. The sender was info@pepsi.co.uk. Of course I suspected it was a fake, but decided to take five minutes to research. I found the UK website for Pepsico and... Sign in to see full entry.

A Blast From The Past

Rinnnnnggggg. Rinnnnnggggg. "Honey, do you know this person?" (My husband is a screener). I didn't even hesitate to pick up the phone. It was my old roommate. Until Saturday morning, I hadn't spoken to her in over 5 years. Two hours later it was as if no time had passed. That's how it is with old... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darker Side Of Pain Medication

After my rather harrowing dental procedure last week, I have no doubt that pain is the most powerful motivator. I can definitely understand why pulling teeth is a sadistic torture specialist's tried-and-true torture device. My sister, having survived the same procedure several years ago, swears that...

Nightmare At The Dentist

I have hated going to the dentist since childhood. Not because the dentists are evil, sadistic monsters revving their drills and laughing maniacally. For the most part, all of my dentists have been great people. The problem is my teeth. I was born with a hereditary condition whereby 4 of my molars... Sign in to see full entry.

YES! FINALLY CAUGHT UP!

What a nightmare. With an extra department to market, a new CRM to learn and a whole lotta trade shows to attend, the marketing world has been a bit on the crazy side. I'm thankful I have a good job, though. I have a fulfilling, well-paying job with a profitable and growing company during a terrible... Sign in to see full entry.

SWAMPED!

Hey all---the last two weeks have been a little on the completely insane side at work, so my blogging time has seriously been affected. Not to worry, I'll be back. Sign in to see full entry.

Office-Wide Plagues

Two and a half weeks ago, one of our VP's came to work with a terrible spring cold. He apparently contracted it from his kids. He had a meeting with both my boss and her boss while he was at the peak of his sickness and gave it to them both. Last Monday my boss stayed home from work, but still had...

Exit Polls and Religion In American Voting

A post by one of my favorite Blogit writers sent me off to do some reasearch this morning while I covered the switchboard. I found exit polls at cnn.com for the 1996, 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. As I reviewed the data, I noticed some interesting facts: 1. The religious demographics see...

It's The Little Things In Life That Make Us Happy

Our operations officer walked into my cubicle with our new promotional pen in his hand. "I love this pen!" Pure bliss radiated from his face. "I usually use a customer's pen, because ours never work." He floated out of my office with a hanful to give away on his various service visits. In marketing,... Sign in to see full entry.
