I remember listening to Mary J. Blige when I was in highschool, and thinking she was hot on her music videos. This would still be the case, some 12 years later. However, for some reason, MJB has apparently undergone some plastic surgery (like many women in the public eye do) and wasted what I felt were good looks.
Older women can be beautiful. I can think of several examples, like say Vanessa Williams. That woman could be 50 and I would still find her hot. The reason? She ages gracefully, and it looks natural. My advice is to stop while you still can. Plastic surgery eventually leads to looking like Michael Jackson, he is living proof why it is bad. If anyone gets enough of it, they will look like he does, as well.
Plastic surgery kills, good looks.
At one time there was a great deal of speculation concerning AOL layoff rumors. That speculation is no more. It is now clear that all of the Tucson sites will be laid off in the near future (i.e. less than 6 months from now).
It’s an inevitable state of affairs if you look at AOL’s changing business model. They are changing revenue to be advertisement based and not subscription based. To accelerate that, they are giving free service to those who have high speed and do not want tech support. Clearly they are stepping away from a software platform, and embracing one that is web based. Hence no need for techs (us).
To make the possibility even more clear, they admitted to needing to layoff 5,000 people (duh), 3,000 of which will come from Europe. The other 2,000 will likely be us here in Tucson, and whatever callcenters remain (I think Abequerque). It is our belief that India will stay on to be the last techs. Why cut the cheap ones first? (thinking like an idiot bean counter).
So anyway we post here to put any speculation to rest, and plan for the future. Yes we were those guys that walked you through deleting files and reinstalling CD’s. Yes we wrote disgusting articles shortly after talking with you. We were those guys.
We hold little ill-will towards our employer. Much like you would not hold ill-will toward a retarded kid that hits you with a baseball he was playing with. You can’t get mad at him, because he’s retarded. The same holds for our company. I could go into a lengthy diatrabe about corporate stupidity. Let me just say, I have never understood the figure of speech “right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing”, more clearly than I have in the years I’ve been working at this company. For those about to be canned, we salute you!
Looks like Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake are splitting up. Friends close to the couple say it isn’t true. But you know what JT. Dump her! I actually spotted Diaz and Timberlake while on my honeymoon in Maui. At Cheeseburgers in Paradise (yummy burgers and color changing collectors cups!). She denied my wife a picture : (. But I would have done the same if I had not spackled on concealer just 10 minutes previous to the photo. Her skin is all freckly-like and she must have been in the ocean because her eyes were bloodshot. But hey, we would have taken an autograph. I should have snapped the photo anyways, ran out yelling “Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake in Cheeseburgers in Paradise. She’s putting cheese on her head and snorting french fry seasoning”.
So now to who Timberlake is supposedly dating. Mr. Ronco’s daughter, Lauren Popeil. She is the heiress to the Ron Popeil Rotisserie cookin’, egg scramblin, pocket fishin’ fortune. Which I’m sure dwarf’s Timberlake’s singing and acting career earnings combined. Never deny the purchasing power of trailer people. I must admit I have a little trailer person in me too, I like that rotisserie “Set it and Forget it!”.
So go for it Timberlake… For the trailer park person in all of us…
