Web Watch has been a member of any number of work-related groups and networking circles.
Usually, they serve some greater purpose in advancing one’s career via seminars and learning opportunities.
But the networking aspect of them always felt a little… off.
Very clique-ish, especially from an outsider’s viewpoint looking in. If you didn’t already know someone who knew someone, your ability to join in all the fun and reindeer games would be similar to what you probably went through in high school, with the same insecurities in trying to make it in with the In Crowd.
FOX’s TV show NEW GIRL has become one of this season’s more entertaining programs.
While it started slow, with an unnecessary emphasis on the adorkable Zooey Deschanel, it has grown into itself as the audience (and show writers) have gotten to know all the other characters that inhabit Jess’ 30-year-old life.
One recent episode had Jess wondering how to describe what she saw, when she saw one of her roommates’ friends urinating in their shared, co-ed bathroom.
How often do you lose your keys or your sunglasses?
In the Web Watch household, it’s almost a daily occurrence. Hey, it happens to everyone, right?
One thing that we’ve learned over the years is that no matter how lost something is in your immediate environment, everything will always turn up eventually. It may not be when you most need it, but everything does show up somewhere down the road.
Web Watch has a number of friends who have raised mature, well-adjusted children.
Over the years, as we’ve seen these kids grow from toddlers to college-attending members of society, we’ve often commented on our friends’ superior parenting skills when compared to other families we see out and about at the mall, restaurants, or even Disney World – where the kids are literally terrors on two feet.
There’s a difference between being your child’s Best Friend and being their parent, and today’s society appears to have shifted the blame of this bad behavior not on the bad parenting being done by the adults, but rather as a result of the kids themselves being unresponsive and not receptive to listening to their parents.
We may not remember names and faces very well, but we certainly remember places and all sorts of useless trivia (as you can well attest by reading any of the thousands of Web Watch articles we’ve written over the years).
So how does one exercise their memory in order to become good at remembering things?
Yes, “sexting” is all the rage these days, apparently. Everyone from schoolkids to businessmen and government employees are sending naughty pictures of themselves with abandon, to everyone and anyone they know.
Bed Bugs are making the news all over the place this year, especially with the warm weather that has been seen all across the country this past winter.
So we shouldn’t be surprised that ORKIN, one of the largest pest control companies in the country, is considered an expert on how to control bed bugs.
And now that it’s Spring Break, unsuspecting college kids and high school seniors are going to be traveling all over the country, and may end up bringing home a special friend or two (or three thousand) with them if they’re not careful.
And that’s one reason why Orkin decided to release their list of the TOP 50 BED BUG CITIES in AMERICA for 2011.
A few years ago, Web Watch was visiting Las Vegas with some friends. As is the case when traveling with a large group of people – especially in Vegas – we all found ourselves staying in different hotels.
And as is the case with different Las Vegas hotels, cleanliness standards can be a bit different from hotel to hotel, company to company.
So while Web Watch was enjoying our crisp, clean sheets, one member of our brigade found herself being transferred from one dirty hotel room to another until she ultimately asked to be checked into a different hotel across the way.
Apparently, maid service doesn’t always check to clear the room of used.. (ahem) … from underneath the bed.
Web Watch has talked about the WORST EARWORMS EVER, but did you know that there are ongoing studies to really identify what causes earworms?
You do know what an earworm is, don’t you?
For those of you knew to the terminology – an earworm is just a fancy word that defines what happens when a song gets stuck in your head. The theme for “it’s a small world” is often cited as the worst offender, but we know better.
Well, to run a successful nightclub – you can’t make a habit from giving your drinks away to just anybody. Handing them out for free to Web Watch? Sure – that’s to be expected – but not everyone can get away with that like we can.
Still, when you’re making millions upon millions of dollars a year on $500 bottle service, it’s okay to throw out a free drink on occasion. Grease the celebrity wheels, if you will.
