  • Get a Date...From a Football Game!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    Football season officially started Wednesday, and depending on how big a fan you are, that might make it easier to meet someone, or more difficult.  So we've got four tips on what to do, based on how much you love football . . . or hate it.


    #1.)  If You're a Guy Who Hates Football.  You're in luck, since a lot of women SAY they think watching football is a boring waste of time.  So just mentioning that you'd rather spend your weekends doing something else is a big plus.


    The best place to meet someone:  On Sunday afternoon, when other guys are glued to the TV, hit a farmer's market, a bookstore, or anywhere that'll have a decent amount of women hanging around.


    #2.)  If You're a Guy Who Loves Football.  Face it:  Unless you have season tickets, your exposure to football is from watching television.  So you may love the sport, but really, what you do all weekend is watch TV.


    The best place to meet someone:  It isn't crazy to find a woman who loves football, but you've got to look in the right places.  You MIGHT be able to find an available female fan at a sports bar.  Good luck with that.


    But you're better off scanning an online forum for your team, which often list game-watching parties.  Or head to the game itself with a wingman, and tailgate in the parking lot beforehand.


    #3.)  If You're a Woman Who Hates Football.  There's a difference between HATING football . . . and just thinking it's boring or confusing.  If you actually hate the sport, that's one thing.  But if you learned the game, you might enjoy it more.


    The best place to meet someone:  Start by looking for men where football fans are scarce.  Do things on Sunday afternoon when the game's on, like go to the gym, walk your dog, or hit up a trendy restaurant that you know won't be airing the game.


    #4.)  If You're a Woman Who Loves Football.  We saved you for last because most men see a woman who loves football as a gift from the gods.  It's an instant conversation starter and an easy way to a first date.


    The best place to meet someone:  Find the best sports bar in your area and head there wearing your team's jersey.  You'll be a rare commodity and should have your pick of the single dudes.

  • How to Deal With an Annoying Co-Worker!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    Even if you love your job and everyone who works there there is probably ONE person that annoys you. Find that person on the US News list and then read their solution on how to deal with them! 

    1. The interrupter. Whenever you’re talking with a coworker, this person finds a way to butt in. She answers your questions to other people, and you can’t have a private conversation without her ending up in it.

    The solution: There’s only one way to make it stop, and that’s to address it head-on. The next time this happens, say something like, “Actually, I really wanted to get Jane’s input on this. Would you give us a minute?” If she doesn’t back off, say it again: “Thanks. Actually, I really want to talk to Jane about it.” Say it nicely, but be firm.


    2. The know-it-all. This person has an opinion on everything and loves to tell you how to do your job better.

    The solution: Let it roll right off your back. The more you ignore this person and don’t let him get to you, the better. When he offers an unsolicited opinion, say, “Thanks, I'll think about that.” And if you find yourself getting frustrated, comfort yourself with the knowledge that this person is widely considered obnoxious; you're definitely not the only one annoyed.


    3. The slacker. You’re working away and she’s playing on Facebook or planning her wedding. Every day. It’s obvious to you and your other co-workers that she’s not pulling her weight, but for some reason your boss doesn’t do anything about it.

    The solution: Try to ignore it. Sure, it’s possible your boss is letting her get away with it, but it’s also possible your boss is addressing it behind the scenes; you probably wouldn’t know about it if that was the case. Either way, the answer for you is the same: If it’s not affecting your work, it's really not your business. If it does affect your ability to do your job (because you have to take on her work, or you're dependent on her work in order to do your own job), then raise it with your boss from that perspective, keeping the focus on how it affects your productivity.


    4. The grump. The grump exudes negativity. Suggestions, new practices, the new guy down the hall—he hates them all and he makes sure people know it.

    The solution: Have a sense of humor. Try to see this person as your own office Eeyore. If that doesn’t help, remember that this person is miserable. Happy people don’t behave that way, and remembering that might make dealing with him somewhat easier.

    5. The speakerphone lover. For some reason, this co-worker always plays back her voicemail messages on speakerphone ... or worse, has whole conversations on speakerphone, with an utter disregard for how annoying it is to those around her.

    The solution: Just be straightforward. Say something like, “Hey Meredith, would you mind taking your phone off speaker? It makes it hard to concentrate.”


    6. The blabbermouth. The blabbermouth goes on and on and on. She’s especially talented at roping you into long conversations that never end when you’re on deadline or trying to make a phone call.

    The solution: Be assertive, and don’t let the blabbermouth have so much power over how you spend your time. Speak up! Say, “Sorry, but I'm on deadline and I've got to finish something up.” If she still keeps going, be even more direct: “I need to stop talking and get back to work.”

    In fact, with most types of annoying co-workers, the solution is simply to be straightforward and assertive. Not angry, not hostile, just direct—but that's something that can make people anxious, so it's important to know that it's really okay to speak up for yourself in a matter-of-fact, professional way. And if that fails, just be glad these people aren’t in your family.

    Robert Pattinson's older sisters Lizzy and Victoria do not forgive Kristen Stewart for breaking their brother's heart. In fact, they've told Rob they'll "kill him if he gets back" with her.

    Sources say Michael Clarke Duncan died because he went five full minutes without oxygen before his girlfriend Omarosa could revive him after his heart attack on July 13th. He simply suffered too much damage in that time to recover from. Meanwhile, Omarosa said that her and Michael were secretly engaged.


    Elton John and Madonna may have buried that hatchet after running into each other at a restaurant in France. A witness says, quote, "They were laughing and smiling. They even hugged each other."

And while her body is "not bouncing back like a supermodel," she's been losing weight steadily since she hooked up with Weight Watchers.

  • Don't Call Me Babe!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers


    According to a survey by a British website called Siteopia, only one in five people call their partner by their actual name all the time.  The rest have 'pet names' for each other. 

     One in six men refer to their wife as "the boss" . . . and one in 14 call her "the ball and chain."  One in 10 guys say their friends found out their wife's pet name for THEM . . . either by her accidentally using it in public, or by friends reading their texts.

    Anyway, here are the 10 pet names that women hate most: 


    #1.)  Babe.

    #2.)  Sweet cheeks.

    #3.)  Snookums.

    #4.)  Baby doll.

    #5.)  Baby girl.

    #6.)  Muffin.

    #7.)  Ducky.

    #8.)  Baby cakes.

    #9.)  Sexy pants.

    #10.)  Pudding.
