I decided I need a break. It's been great not reading/hearing/watching about recent layoffs, the tanking market and increased foreclosure rates.
Instead, I went to see Watchmen (matinee screening, of course) this past weekend. Do you want a finance tip? Go to the library and borrow Watchmen, the graphic novel, before you go see the movie. There were many people who came out of the movie theater scratching their heads asking, "What the h#ll was that all about?"
And, ironically, there's been no better refuge from reality than "reality TV". The best show to make yourself feel better about your scruples, morals and ethics has got to be Rock of Love Tour Bus on VH1. After all, it's a show where a former stripper and Penthouse Pet is the classiest contestant.
And that reminds me of this hilarious fake commentary from The Onion about skanks on reality shows.
But... no matter how much runaway from reality, it seems to keep sucking me right back in. My company will be having a company-wide meeting today. I wonder what bad news I can take today?
