I majored in journalism and I always loved our adjuncts. I think it's different when the adjuncts are in Arts & Sciences. Because most of the Communications/Business adjuncts have full-time jobs in the industry and teach a class a semester because they enjoy it or want the extra money. I have had adjuncts who worked… » 2/25/15 9:56am 2/25/15 9:56am

During the Texas premiere of Miss Congeniality I worked in news and my employer covered the red carpet. I remember from that evening that Julia Roberts (who was there with Benjamin Bratt) was rude as hell. We were a smaller local station and larger national entertainment channels were also there. But not like tons of… » 2/10/15 10:02am 2/10/15 10:02am

I used to be able to find a can of the Kraft cheese dust at the grocery store. Like this. It was only slightly smaller than a can of parmesan cheese. Like this. When I was single and lived alone, my favorite meal was to make instant mashed potatoes and add the cheese dust. Knowing that potato dust isn't real food and… » 2/09/15 10:33am 2/09/15 10:33am

As someone who handles brand pages, you just know that a social media manager was so excited about a non-abusive comment they bragged about it to co-workers. "We got a comment! And not one about making money working from home! You guys, we got a comment!" » 2/03/15 2:12pm 2/03/15 2:12pm

I remember asking a guy I was dating once "What job would you have if you didn't work at your current job? What would your other dream career be?" because he worked as a sports reporter and I hate sports so I was hoping that maybe I could find out he has some other interest and I'd have a reason to date him beyond… » 1/13/15 5:44pm 1/13/15 5:44pm

I hang out with pretty casual people but my advice is to not wear jeans. In the summer I'll wear a sundress or a casual skirt. In colder months I'll wear pants. Last baby shower I went to was last year November and I wore skinny black pants with slouchy knee boots and a blue sweater. » 1/10/15 7:41pm 1/10/15 7:41pm

Shit, I had a possum die in the crawl space and the smell of that made me want to burn the whole damn house down after just two days. The landlord removed it and everything went back to normal. I can't imagine the smell from a person and for a year. » 1/07/15 12:40pm 1/07/15 12:40pm

I have to share something about this restaurant! I used to have to go to create some window display in that area and the guy who put the whole display together did a great job so I said "Hey, do you want to grab lunch?" and he suggested Fridays and I said "How about that restaurant down there by the ice skaters" and… » 12/16/14 4:33pm 12/16/14 4:33pm

The movie review is exactly what I expected after reading the book. Cheryl creates a shit-ton of problems for herself throughout the whole movie and then expects to be congratulated on her strength in facing those problems. And we're talking about really idiotic problems. Like "I bought the wrong size hiking boots… » 12/16/14 1:02pm 12/16/14 1:02pm
