DATING IS EXPENSIVE. While most guys shell out big bucks during the actual date to impress a woman, women will usually spend their hard-earned cash getting ready for the date. But before you max out a credit card trying to win your date’s affections…or convince someone you’re hot…check out this list of 5 Things Men And Women Really Notice On A Date.
1. Great hair beats a curvy figure. According to a recent survey conducted by Pantene…60% of guys would rather date a woman with great hair than noticeable curves. 74% of them said they notice a woman because of her hair. In fact, 44% of men said that hair was the first thing they notice about a woman. Most of the men who took the poll also said they’d be more likely to approach a woman at a bar with great hair than one who was wearing a low-cut shirt.
2. Guys find pink or red lips sexier than a pair of high heels. Researchers tracked the eye movements of 50 guys and found that within 10 seconds of meeting a woman for the first time, the average guy will spend more than half of his time looking at her mouth. If she’s wearing lipstick, he’ll find it even more difficult to look away: a dash of pink can hold his attention for nearly 7 seconds, while red keeps him fixated for over 7 seconds. Men tire of looking at ladies with completely bare lips after about 2 seconds. According to the study, fuller lips are the biggest preference, though the appeal of thin-lipped women increase by 40%
if she wears lipstick.
3. Women looking for real relationships are more impressed by flowers than a sports car. While women found men with a flashy sports car to be more attractive when it came to dating, that same trait didn’t make men more desirable for long-term committed relationships. In fact, they found that women usually think guys who flash a lot of bling and money are only interested in having casual hook-ups. So if you’re a dude looking for the real thing, then you’re better off sinking your cash into dinners, flowers, and thoughtful gestures.
4. Being physically fit makes you more attractive and relationship-worthy. Looking hot will serve you better that getting your date drunk! Having a fit figure is definitely going to get you more long-term action than a martini ever could. Keep in mind that working out will increase your prowess in the bedroom too. In fact, a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology indicated the length of treadmill exercise increased your length of “lasting” time by over two minutes for each minute of treadmill time. So forget about picking up a six pack of beer and start working on those six pack abs!
5. Bad hygiene is a huge turn-off, regardless of what you’re wearing. It doesn’t matter if you’re dressed in Prada, Armani or Old Navy…what ABSOLUTELY matters is that you’re clean and smell good before you arrive. Brush your teeth, wash your hands, and use deodorant. In fact, a recent Match.com poll found the biggest turn-off on a date is body odor (16%), bad breath (11%), dirty fingernails (1%), or all of the above (72%). No shocker here…bad hygiene is a romance killer.
So if you’re going on a date this weekend…follow these 5 tips and I guarantee a better chance of success.
IF YOUR DATE INCLUDES A MOVIE THIS WEEKEND…here are previews for the three new movies opening up today and getting the most hype.
MIRROR MIRROR: Snow White get a 21st century make-over but it’s essentially the same story. The evil Queen rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince.
BULLY: This is a movie that’s getting lots of attention because of the wide-spread epidemic of bullying in our nation. If you think it’s being overblown then consider that over 18 million young people in the United States will be bullied this year. This movie follows a disquieting year in the life of several students joining this staggering statistic. As teachers and parents grapple with America’s bullying crisis, the students do what they can to survive a school day.
It’s a documentary so it doesn’t have any major stars attached, and don’t expect to see it alongside the major blockbusters at your local theater.
HE DODGED A BULLET LAST WEEK…but wasn’t as lucky last night. If you missed American Idolhere’s what happened on the results show. All I can say is, it’s about time!
A Canadian guy got picked up for public intoxication, shoved inside a police car and taken to the station. After unsuccessfully pleading his case to the cops, he took off his glasses and launched into an amazing version of the song. It wasn’t perfect, if you’re into pitch and all that, but it was amazing nonetheless.
I SAID IT EARLIER THIS WEEK…MEN SHOULD STOP COOKING. And now a new survey makes me feel even stronger about that. An online survey by over 2,800 American women found that 58% of women think their husbands are better cooks than they are.
What? Are you kidding me? While I suppose as men we should be flattered that the majority of women are strong enough to admit we out-do them in the kitchen…but for some reason it just doesn’t seem right. It feels like we’re messing with the natural order of things.
Oh I know that some of the best chefs in the world are men. I watch the Food Network and see guys like Emeril, Bobby Flay and Alton Browncooking up a storm…but I’ve always thought they were the exception, not the rule. Call me old school, but it just seems like women should naturally be better at a few things than us…and cooking is on the list right after giving birth. Let’s be honest…we’re the half of the species that sits around with our hand tucked in our boxers, burping, farting, watching Sports Center and movies like The Hangover. Heck the only recipies most of us have ever looked at were on the back of a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
According to the survey 78% of women acknowledged their mothers could easily fix several different dishes, but only 11% of the women surveyed can cook more than three meals without turning to a cookbook for help. If that surprises you then you may be shocked to find that one in 20 say they fumble when it comes to making an omelet or boiling eggs.
When asked why they didn’t cook more often, 52% said they have a partner who does most of the cooking. Well yeah…if you’re not going to cook…I guess someone has to if anyone is going to eat! My favorite answer is from the 12% who said they didn’t want to have to clean up afterward!
So what’s for dinner tonight at your house? And more importantly…who’s cooking?
THE TOP 9 PERFORMED SONGS from their personal idols last night on American Idol.
I LOVE that they had Stevie Nicks as a mentor last night. I think she really connected with a couple of the kids…particularly Elise Testone. I think if she actually makes it to the finals the producers should have Stevie come back to sing with her.
They make one more roster cut tonight. I look for Heejun Han to finally get his walking papers…but I said that last week too. I guess if I keep saying it then eventually it’s bound to happen…because there’s no way he can win.
Also look for last year’s winner, Scotty McCreery, to perform live tonight at 8 on FOX.
WE’VE ALL SEEN THE VIRAL VIDEOS of military homecomings. They usually include spouses, kids or dogs. While all of those are really touching…for some reason…I really love this one. It’s a sailor sneaking into a family picture to surprise his grandmother on her 76th birthday.

EVERYONE WANTS A JOB THEY LOVE. But these days, just having a job you can tolerate might be appealing too.
Although currently unemployed…I ABSOLUTELY LOVE everything about my job as a morning radio personality. Yes…even the 3 a.m. wake-up call! The only thing I don’t like about it right now is not having one. But it’s not a matter of if I’ll land another show…it’s a matter of when and where. Sadly, not everyone feels the same way about their career. Just take a look around the office…or think about people you know. How many of them are really happy about going to work each day?
CareerBliss just put together a list of the 20 happiest jobs in America based on analysis from more than 100,000 employee-generated reviews over the past year. Employees rated 10 factors that affect workplace happiness, including their relationship with the boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work they do on a daily basis.
CareerBliss is quick to point out that many people appreciate their jobs more in a down economy. They also found that as the economy improves this year many people will re-evaluate their current job situation and may elect to change careers. I’m really surprised by the jobs that made the Top 10. None of them appear particularly sexy…as a matter of fact a couple of them sound downright boring.
Here’s the list of the Top 10 Happiest Jobs in America:
1. Software Quality Assurance Engineer
2. (tie) Executive Chef
2. (tie) Property Manager
5. Warehouse Manager
6. Administrative Assistant
7. Customer Service Representative
9. (tie) Systems Engineer
9. (tie) Construction Manager
Now if you’re a radio station Program Director and you need a morning show personality that’s plugged into pop culture, Social Media, knows how to entertain on air and online, loves meeting listeners and clients, and prepares for each day’s show like an obsessive maniac…take a look around my website and then get in touch. That would make ME very happy!
If you read my post last week after the first night of competition then you know that I predicted who would be the first to leave…and I’m thrilled to say I WAS RIGHT! After just two shows, Martina Navratilova was eliminated from the competition. Just watch and see why for yourself.
I have to be honest…this isn’t one of my must-see TV shows. American Idol? Yes. Dancing With The Stars…ehh, not so much. However, since I know a lot of people really love it I’ll continue to post about it, and undoubtedly make snarky comments. So if you’re a fan of the show take my opinion with a grain of salt!
ONE THING I CAN SAY FOR CERTAIN…I like this woman’s dance much more than anything I’ve ever seen on Dancing With The Stars. If you’re a fan of the song Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO…or you’ve ever been pregnant…then you’ll love it too.
I ACTUALLY POSTED THATlast night on my Facebook page. See…if you had gone over and LIKED my page then you would have already had a chance to share that with your friends. So don’t wait any longer…go like my page and I promise to keep posting funny, cool, and interesting stuff for you to enjoy and share. You should also follow me on Twitter. I post on both multiple times throughout the day…unless something comes up. Which it rarely does!
Jonathan Antoine is a 17-year-old opera singer, and his friend Charlotte Jaconelli is a 16-year-old pop singer. They both sailed through to the next round after their performance of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli’sThe Prayer.
I love it when a couple like that comes out and the audience underestimates them…and then they get blown away by how great the singers are. Proof positive that we shouldn’t judge a book by the cover.
SKIP THE VEGGIES AND TOSS OUT THE FRUIT…then grab a big bowl of popcorn instead! Afterall, you want to be healthy right?
Here’s the deal…a group of scientist got together earlier this week in San Diego at a big convention and reported that popcorn contains more of the healthful antioxidant substances called polyphenols than many fruits and vegetables. Polyphenols are more concentrated in popcorn…averaging about 4% water, while polyphenols are diluted in the 90% water that makes up a lot of fruits and vegetables. They also discovered that the hulls of the popcorn…the part that we all hate because they get stuck in our teeth…actually has the highest concentration of polyphenols and fiber.
In truth, popcorn can’t really replace fresh fruits and vegetables in a healthy diet because of all the vitamins and other nutrients they provide that are critical for good health, but are missing from popcorn.
So before you actually chuck the broccoli and toss out the apples, keep in mind if you make your popcorn in a potful of oil, pour on the butter (even the fake stuff), coat it in salt or eat it as “kettle corn” cooked in oil and sugar…then you’re loading it up with fat and calories. Eat it that way and you’re really hurting yourself.
However, according to the study, popcorn may be the perfect snack food. It’s the only snack that is 100 percent unprocessed whole grain. All other grains are processed and diluted with other ingredients, and although cereals are called “whole grain,” this simply means that over 51% of the weight of the product is whole grain. One serving of popcorn provides more than 70% of the daily intake of whole grain. The average person only gets about half a serving of whole grains a day.
SO MAKE A BIG BOWL OF POPCORN AND WATCH ONE OF THESE MOVIES that just came out on DVD/BluRay today.
EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE. A nine-year-old boy attempts to solve a family mystery. Two years after his father is killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks, the boy discovers a mysterious key hidden in a household vase and begins an exhaustive search for the matching lock.
This movie looks really good. I wanted to see this in the theater but never made it. It’s Rated PG-13, and stars Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock.
A DANGEROUS METHOD. Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, a driven doctor takes an unbalanced, yet beautiful, patient.
I haven’t heard anything about this movie…but it sounds kind of sexy. It’s Rated R for sexual content and brief language, and Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen.
ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED. Dave, the Chipmunks, and the Chipettes enjoy fun and mischief on a luxury cruise before their seafaring vacation takes an unexpected detour to an uncharted island.
If you have little kids this is a MUST SEE! Rated G and starring Jason Lee.
AS ALWAYS…thanks for reading. If you like today’s post be sure to link it up to your Facebook or Twitter and share it with a friend. And be sure to have them like my new Facebook page or follow me on Twitter. See you tomorrow.
THE HUNGER GAMESwas the BIGGEST movie of the weekend. It made over $155 million from Friday through Sunday…making it the third highest debut ever and the most ever for a movie that’s not a sequel. And it’s not just raking in the money…it’s also getting great reviews.
So how does it stack up against movies like Twilight and Harry Potter? Well, it’s not even close! The Hunger Games more than doubled Twilight‘s debut. The better comparisons involve the vampire saga’s sequels. When you do that, Twilight wins some…Breaking Dawn Part 1, Eclipse and New Moon all debuted bigger at midnight and on their opening days…but The Hunger Games still wins the most important stat: opening-weekend bragging rights.
The Hunger Games opened bigger than all of the Harry Potter sequels, except one…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The one sequel The Hunger Games didn’t beat, is still Hollywood’s weekend king. But, Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘s total was boosted by 3-D ticket prices; The Hunger Games got by on 2-D.
With that kind of success you know there’s all kinds of hype coming our way. It may have already started with The Hunger Games Name Generator. You just type your own name and gender in and it spits out a slightly offbeat dystopian name. Mine is Skene Spottiswoode. What’s yours? Find out HERE.
GUYS NEED TO STOP COOKING. A new study has found that women would prefer their husbands cook them dinner rather than make love with them! The survey found 77% of women are “very impressed” by a guy that knows how to cook…and 90% would pick a home-cooked meal over getting flowers from their man.
On the other hand…the survey found that guys also like a woman that can cook…but we just prefer she do it between the sheets! Two-thirds of men said they prefer a partner who is “good in bed” rather than “good in the kitchen”.
I personally cook a lot. When I was single I found that women really loved that…especially when I cooked a romantic dinner just for them. That usually led to a great “dessert”…if you know what I mean. And I think you do! However, it looks as if things have changed…unless this survey is completely off base. Ladies…I’ll leave it up to you to respond and set the record straight.
In the meantime, my take away from this is: guys DON’T become good cooks!
YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD BY NOW that Kim Kardashian got flour bombed on the red carpet at the launch party for her new fragrance, True Reflection.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was called to the hotel where they took the woman, an animal rights protester, into custody. She was later released at the scene when Kim decided not to press charges…mostly because she didn’t want to distract herself from the event.
WHILE I DON’T AGREE WITH THE FLOUR BOMBER…I do agree with a Tweet from actor/singer Will Smith.
A psuedo-celebrity has flour dumped on her head and a woman gets arrested and then released…but a 17 year old kid gets shot dead in Floridafor wearing a hoody and there’s been NO arrest made. What’s wrong with that picture? I don’t even want to start answering that or else I’ll be here all day. But it’s safe to say I think the guy in Florida should be arrested and charged with murder.
AMERICAN IDOL CELEBRATED last week…but today is the actual day. Happy Birthday to Aerosmith lead-singer Steven Tyler.
DRIVING AND TEXTING IS SO DANGEROUS that it’s sparked a huge ad campaign to urge us to stop…and seven states have actually made it illegal to drive and text at the same time.
Perhaps it’s time to take it one step further. Maybe we should also ban walking and texting.
Everyone has seen the videoof the woman falling into the fountain while texting.
Well get ready for one better. Earlier this week, while strolling the pier on Lake Michigan with her husband and 15 year old son, a woman was walking and texting when she walked right off the end of the pier!
The thing about this story is…it isn’t funny. The woman had trouble treading water because of the strong current..and could have drown. Thankfully her husband and a passer-by jumped in the water and helped until emergency personnel arrived to help rescue her. It could have turned out much differently had she been alone.
If you haven’t seen it…documentary maker Casey Neistat recently made a somewhat comedic public service announcement for people that text while walking.
Earlier this year, a research team at Stony Brook Universityconducted a study around texting while walking and found that people veered away from walking a straight path by 60%. The amount of distance traveled increased by 13% and it took about 33% longer to reach a destination when texting while walking. Another study found that kids who text or talk on a cell phone while walking near or on a street are 40% more likely to get hit by a car. That’s not so funny.
I used to drive and text all of the time. But after seeing a couple of those public service announcements, and reading stories about horrible accidents…I stopped. If I have to text while driving I pull over and do it. And while I still walk and text…I think it may be time to re-evaluate that too. I sure don’t want to walk off the end of the pier…I’m not that great of a swimmer.
I’M SO DISAPPOINTED IN AMERICA…and for once it has nothing to do with the Republican primary. The American people decided that Heejun Hanwas more talented that Erika Van Pelt, and last night they eliminated the singing DJ on AMERICAN IDOL.
WTH? Really? I’m still in shock. Some people are calling it the Curse Of The Makeover after Erika cut and colored her hair a few nights ago on the advice of fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger.
I just don’t get it…EVP is a MUCH better singer than Heejun. And she truly wanted to be there. In my opinion Heejun acts like it’s all a big joke. And maybe that’s his appeal; he’s just a fun loving guy having a good time. If he win’s great…if he doesn’t, oh well it was fun while it lasted. I get that…but it is a SINGING competition. If he’s more interested in being funny maybe he should try out for Last Comic Standing. Just sayin’.
I guess just like any election…you can’t complain if you don’t vote. So next week I’m going to be burning up the phone, text and ‘net with my vote.
IT DOESN’T MATTER how many movies are in the theater this weekend…because the only one that really matters is THE HUNGER GAMES. My oldest son has been making me promise to take him to see this ever since he saw the first preview months ago…and actually got mad when I wouldn’t take him to a midnight showing last night!
Based on the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins, it’s the first in a trilogy that has over 26 million copies in print in the United States alone. It has spent more than 180 consecutive weeks on The New York Times bestseller list since its publication in September 2008. It has also consistently been on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.
A sixteen year old girl volunteers in her younger sister’s place to enter the games, and is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor when she is pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for the Games their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home, she must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
ACCORDING TO THE LABOR DEPARTMENT…the number of Americans claiming new unemployment benefits dropped to 348,000 last week. That’s the lowest level since February 2008.
While that’s great news…there are still plenty of us looking for a new job. In the past few weeks I’ve posted tips on how to avoid saying during the interview, what to wear, and ways to spruce up your resume.
Well according to a new study released yesterday by the most comprehensive job-matching service for career-driven professionals, TheLadders…and no, there isn’t a space between the two words…the people doing the hiring claim that they spend at least four minutes reviewing a resume…but a new scientific technique called “eye tracking,” implements technology to analyze where and how-long a person focuses when digesting information. TheLadders recorded recruiter behavior as they viewed online profiles, different types of resumes, and other forms of candidate information…and found they really take just about SIX SECONDS to look at a resume to decide whether or not we’re a good match for the position!
So what are the recruiters looking at in that time? The research showed that they spend almost 80% of their resume-review time on name, current title/company, previous title/company, previous position’s start and end dates, current position’s start and end dates, and education.
If you’re resume has anything other than those items as it’s primary focus…change it NOW. As harsh as it sounds, no one cares that you play on the church softball team, that you volunteer at the animal shelter, or any of the other non-job related stuff you may have on your resume.
Make your career the focus of your resume. Then perhaps during the interview the more personal side of you, and the “what do you do away from work?” stuff will have a place. In the meantime…fix up that resume…and good luck. Despite what the economists say it’s still tough out there.
MAYBE I SHOULD STOP LOOKING FOR A NEW MORNING RADIOJOB and just get one of these instead. Considering how much time I spend each day creating compelling content for a daily show, sharing it on Social Media, going out to meet listeners and clients in person…these jobs would be a breeze.
1. Pro Sleeper: Come on…I’m PERFECT for this. I’ve probably spent half of my life asleep somewhere. I love to sleep. They want to pay me too? Where do I sign up?
2. Chocolate Eater: Ummm hello. Do these people know how much I enjoy chocolate? Although I prefer dark chocolate…I’m willing to expand my palate.
3. Cute Pet Aggregator: Pay me to look at pictures of cute kitties all day? Really? OK.
4. Mansion Sitter: I live in YOUR house, eat YOUR food, watch YOUR TV and you pay me on top of it. Yes…this is the gig for me.
5. TV Watcher: Hey I do it for FREE now.
6. Professional Know It All: This may be hard to believe, but I’m pretty smart. And there are those that will tell you that I DO know it all…or at least think I do. They’re probably just jealous of my big brain.
7. Spa Critic: I go get naked and you rub my sore back. I’m ALL OVER that.
8. Resort Consultant: This actually sounds like more work than the other seven, but I’d still be willing to suffer through it and give it a try.
ONE JOB I KNOW I COULD NEVER DO…and obviously the guy in this video can’t either…is be a lumberjack.
That poor guy spent the entire day trying to cut down a tree that he was worried might eventually fall over, or get blown over, on to his house. Someone cue up the Alanis Morissette song, Isn’t It Ironic.
Obviously Gwen wasn’t happy about being eliminated from the competition, but I think she’s probably OK with the consolation prize…a job singing backup on tour with The Voice judge, and Country music giant, Blake Shelton! Read more about Gwen and her new best friend, Amanda Lambert, HERE.
I DON’T MAKE POLITICAL STATEMENTS…but when I run across something as funny as this…well, I just have to share.
I was almost positive that he was going to sign with Tennessee. He played college football there, his wife is from Memphis, the Titans had even offered to give him a job for life with the team.
But perhaps the old saying “You can never go home” is true. Maybe the weight from the unbelievable pressure that he would have felt from fans, and everyone in Tennessee was too much. There’s something to be said for going someplace new and starting fresh. Be it fewer expectations, less pressure, or maybe just a change of scenery.
A lot has been made of Manning’s relationship with former Bronco’s QB John Elway, who is now the big cheese in Denver. Elway knows what it’s like to win a Super Bowl (or two) late in a career…and maybe he promised to help Manning win another one. In the end maybe Manning just felt more comfortable with Elway and Coach John Fox. And I’m certain they both feel more comfortable with Manning at QB than they ever did with Tim Tebow.
Whatever the reason the ex Colt is about to become a Bronco. Look for a press conference announcing the signing…maybe as early as this afternoon.
THE JUDGES SAID IT’S THE BEST START to a season of DANCING WITH THE STARS in the history of the show! If you missed it…go watch the entire show HERE.

THE MUPPETS. So you’re like me and didn’t take your kids to the theater to see this because they’re a little older and they don’t think The Muppets are cool…and you didn’t want to go by yourself for fear of looking like Chester The Molester. Well good news…now you can enjoy it in the privacy of your own home. Just make sure that if you decide to watch in nothing other than your Kermit The Frog underwear that you watch alone!
On vacation in Los Angeles, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends, discover the nefarious plan to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, they help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways.
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATOO. A discredited journalist and a mysterious computer hacker discover that even the wealthiest families have skeletons in their closets while working to solve the mystery of a 40-year-old murder.
THE SITTER. A college dropout becomes a babysitter to make some quick cash, and takes three young kids on an epic urban adventure. Shortly after he’s hired, he gets a call from his girlfriend promising sex for drugs. Desperate and horny, the irresponsible sitter packs the kids into the car and heads for the seedy part of town. Before he can think about it the whole night goes up in flames, and he’s on the run from a pair of murderous drug dealers with no issues about shooting at children.

I’ll admit it now…I probably won’t watch as much this season like I have in years past. But I’ll still keep up to date with what’s happening and be sure to post results and any behind the scenes stuff I uncover. So don’t worry I won’t abandon the show entirely. Here’s a look at how the contestants have been preparing for tonight’s premiere.
The Dancing With The Stars season 14 two hour premiere event is tonight at 8 on ABC.
AS I CONTINUE TO INTERVIEW for new morning show opportunities I try to read as much as possible about interview techniques or things that will give me an edge over other candidates.
I’m not sure if it’s fortunate or unfortunate…but the majority of first interviews are conducted over the phone. Those still require all of your focus and attention…but the seem a little less pressure-filled because you’re usually in the comfort of your home. You can relax a bit more and just talk on the phone.
Still you need to be aware of your tone of voice and how you present yourself.
The big difference is when you actually do the face to face interview. Besides making sure you’re dressed appropriately, that you’re on time, and prepared…you have to make sure you don’t say dumb things. And believe me…we’ve all said dumb things! I just hope none of them has been as dumb as these:
“My apologies for being late, my husband and I were fighting. It happens all the time.”
“I’m in anger management because I hit a former co-worker.”
And then there’s my favorite…“Oh, that’s because I just took a Xanax.”
Crazy right? Really…who says stuff like that? Well it happens more than you might think. HERE are few more that you need to avoid if you’re going on an interview. And good luck!
SPEAKING OF WORKING…here’s today’s RANDOM VIDEO OF THE DAY.
