If you didn't hear CBS renewed a whopping 18 shows yesterday . . . including some of your favorites... "Survivor", "The Amazing Race", "Elementary", "The Big Bang Theory", "How I Met Your Mother", "2 Broke Girls", "Mike & Molly" and of course the two "NCIS" shows.
The shocking part is that "Two and a Half Men" was NOT on the list . . . but CBS is "discussing" another season with the show's production company.
Also, "CSI" will be back, but the jury is still out on "CSI: New York".
(For a full list of CBS' renewals, you can find the press release, here.)
Have you been thinking about trying something new? Making more money doing something you actually enjoy...SHOCKING, I know! It's possible and it's possible with Brensten Education!
I had the opportunity to check out their newly remodeled school yesterday and I was blown away. I remember going to lectures with 300 people in the dungeon-like basement of some ancient building listening to a professor drone on and on about...well...I have no clue what about. NOT at Brensten! Their classes are usually 12-15 people, in bright, high tech labs with HANDS ON LEARNING!
This isn't a school with, like, 500 majors. Brensten Education's focus is on getting you a job in Digital Marketing and/or Help Desk. They will get you the certification you need to GET THE JOB! If you follow their program you will succeed and they're not going to give up on you until you get that new job in your field!
Too good to be true? NOPERS! See for yourself. They're having an open house Thursday, March 28th at 6p. There will be free food and one lucky person will win FREE TUITION! It's only going to take 45 minutes and could change your entire life. Head to http://www.bse.edu to register.
So I was at the store the other day and as I walked past the oreos, I couldn't resist buying some. Maybe it was a pregnancy craving or maybe I'm just using that as an excuse. Either way, I haven't bought oreos in YEARS and I couldn't believe how many flavors there are now! It took me about ten minutes to find the plain old oreos. In the end, I found them, but I don't know if I'm gonna be able to climb back into that oreo dungeon for awhile!
1 … have bad breath or unclean teeth — it’s the equivalent of hooking up in underwear with skid marks.
2 … lick your lips before going in — this is not dinner.
3 … drown your lips in gloss or lipstick.
4 … tongue jab.
5 … have chapped lips.
6 … aim for their uvula with your tongue.
7 … slobber all over your partner’s face — spit is cold and nasty when it gets outside your mouth.
8 … make your tongue hard and pointy.
9 … head straight for the boobs, the ass or the crotch as soon as the kissing commences. 10 … immediately ram your tongue inside.
11 … open your mouth as wide as possible, like you’re attempting to eat the other person’s head.
12 … kiss with a cold sore (i.e. oral herpes).
13 … fail to mention that you have oral herpes, even if you’re currently asymptomatic, as there’s still always a chance — albeit slight — of transmission.
14 … run your tongue along their gums.
15 … sneak up on someone so they don’t have a chance to deflect the incoming kiss.
16 … hold their head in a headlock or press too hard, especially if beard stubble is involved.
17 … withhold tongue altogether.
18 … conduct the oral equivalent of a limp handshake — it’ll make your partner feel like they’re kissing a dead fish.
19 … look around or over your partner’s shoulder during the kiss. (Some people like to kiss with their eyes open, but we recommend keeping your peepers shuttered during a first or early kiss, as wide eyes can freak some people out.)
I know, you're sad/mad that the weekend is over and Mondays are annoying in general, but they're even worse if you run into one of THESE people.
Here's a list of five annoying types of people you're going to run into this week, and how you should deal with them.
1.) Line-Cutters. Your first option is to just ignore them and let them cut in. But if you can't let it slide, do three things: First, make sure you don't act angry or they'll get defensive. I feel like old people are the biggest line-cutters, and they try to act like they don't see everyone else!
Next, ask someone else if they saw the person cut, so you have some back-up. Then confront the person about it as soon as possible, because if you wait five minutes, they'll be even more defensive about it.
2.) People Who Love Arguing, Even When They Know They're Wrong. This one's tough, because you're dealing with someone who's irrational. So the best approach is to try avoiding the argument altogether.
If you decide to argue away, just make sure you're right, or they'll be even more adamant during your next argument. Perfect example of this is the guy I work with Wes, listen to us in the morning, and you'll notice he loves to argue!
3.) Overbearing Family Members. The best thing to do is set clear boundaries so they don't get under your skin too much. But since you don't want to create drama, you also have to choose your battles and let some of the small stuff slide. Sorry, but this more often than not is mothers and mothers-in-law!
That's especially true if you'll only be around them for a short period of time, like Easter Sunday or Thanksgiving. But if it's someone you see all the time or live with, then you HAVE to say something so they don't drive you crazy.
4.) Friends Who Are Never on Time. Argggg, this one ticks me off! If you want to teach them a lesson, just stop waiting for them.
For example, if you're supposed to have dinner with friends, the whole group shouldn't sit there hungry just because one person is late.
Obviously if it's a one-time thing, then you SHOULD wait for them. But if you stop waiting for someone who's chronically late, they'll eventually adjust their behavior. Or there's a chance they'll just get angry and say YOU'RE a jerk.
5.) Noisy Neighbors. Chances are they don't know they're being so loud. And if you just knock on their door and ask them to keep it down, they will. (sometimes, some of you just live next to some jerks)
Or if it's late at night and you don't want to actually confront them about it, it's okay to bang on the wall a few times.
Just don't call the building manager or the cops unless you absolutely have too. Because you're almost guaranteed to make an enemy if you do.
If you didn't fill out a bracket, or don't follow sports that closely, March Madness starts today FYI, good luck to Marquette and the Badgers!
Hopefully it's a great month for Wisconsin sports, because new research shows that it's going to be a bad month for Wisconsin business!
Why? Because the games will cause a LOT of us to ignore our jobs!
One in three of you plan to spend more than three hours each DAY watching basketball at work . . . and another three million people will watch between one and three hours at work.
Most of whom will watch on their work computers, and all that extra streaming video will slow down company internet speeds . . . which means that even people who AREN'T watching basketball are going to be less productive than they usually are.
Overall, companies will lose about $134 million in productivity today and Friday, just because of the tournament. Yikes!
And that doesn't even include all the time that workers will spend BEFORE Thursday, organizing office pools and researching which teams to pick for their brackets.
Surprise! I'm pregnant! It has been so hard keeping it a secret, but I'm happy that I can finally announce it! I'm due September 22 and very excited that Owen will get to be a big brother. Get ready for all my "pregnancy" posts! ha!
How's your year going so far? Yes I know, you're ready for winter to end, but other than that?
If you haven't heard about this yet, back on April 3rd 1988, the "Los Angeles Times Magazine" had a cover story predicting what life would be like in 2013.
A class at USC is looking back to see how accurate the predictions were, here are five things the article got right.
#1.) Every car would have a computer in it, and be able to drive itself. Cars have had computer systems for years . . . and there are self-parking cars, as well as the Google Car that drives itself.
#2.) Computer navigation systems for driving . . . similar to GPS.
#3.) Video chat systems . . . like Skype.
#4.) A, quote, "personal portable computer about the size of a three-by-five card" . . . which sounds a lot like a smartphone.
#5.) Schools with satellite campuses connected over computer networks . . . and computer screens for walls. Most colleges offer long-distance and online courses now . . . and wall-mounted "Smart boards" are part of many classrooms.
Now here are three predictions the experts MISSED on 25 years ago.
#1.) Robot cooks and maids. They thought those would hit the market in the late 1990s and be common by now. Other than Roomba vacuum cleaners, we're still waiting.
#2.) Hover cars. Experts said that magnetism would be used to lift cars off the road for a smoother ride . . . That hasn't happened, but apparently the technology is expected to be ready soon.
