So How Much Money Do You Make?

 

Um, yeah. Don't answer that ... yet!

I read an interesting article in the NY Times this week that said because so much information now is out in the open with social media, we may be entering a time when salaries aren't quite as secretive as they have been in the past.

Do you know what your co-workers make? If not, that may change soon.

Back-to-School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends posted this on Monday, "Um...Did school start?" Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

Worker Escapes A Lion At The Dallas Zoo

Having a job working with animals at a zoo has to be sort of similar to a security guard watching security cameras all day. Most of the time everything is calm and serene and just fine, and very little happens

Jen’s Ice Bucket Challenge Soaks Her 2-Year-Old

Whoops!  I thought it would be a good idea to let the girls drench me and I didn't think about them potentially getting hit with the residuals.

Cowboys Are The NFL’s Most Valuable Team

If you bought any Tony Romo jerseys over the past year, you may have helped propel the Dallas Cowboys to another year of being the NFL's most valuable franchise.

NFL Preseason Is A Big Tease

Anyone else ready for the NFL season to start?  Every time our favorite teams win a preseason game we're convinced our team is great and in good shape for the regular season.  If they lose a preseason game we say, "oh well, it's just the preseason!"

The games don't count, but it is fun to watch guys try to make the team and catch a glimpse of the team as it takes shape.

There is one experiment from the preseason that I hope the NFL decides to keep come September.

Fantasy Football Sucks The Life Out Of The Workday

I'll admit it, Fantasy Football is fun!  So much fun that I had to ban myself from playing.  I was spending way too much time tweaking my lineups each week and dropping and adding players, and worrying about how I was going to beat co-workers named Mike and Amy that I worked with at the time.  I recognized the obsession and quit cold turkey.

And I didn't like that I was rooting for the Ravens defense to intercept Peyton Manning just so I could get a few fantasy points.  Peyton Manning is my boy!  And I became a traitor to him in the name of Fantasy Football, and I felt like a big cheater so I quit.

How much workplace productivity is wasted each year because of Fantasy Football?  It's shocking!
