Patience Is A Virtue, Be More Virtuous

I Traded in my Job Title For a Great Story

“So...what do you do?” was a question I did not want to hear from 2009-2012. It was the first question a stranger would ask me, even before my name. I was put on the spot and I had nothing.

How is this ‘Remotely’ Possible? Virgin Mobile Creates BlinkWashing

The bare-footed hippy geniuses at Virgin Mobile did it again.   Try BlinkWashing here. Must have a webcam and two eyeballs to properly use it. The concept for BlinkWashing originated when Mariah Carey was sloshed off expensive champagne in the bungalow of Sir Richard Branson's privately owned Necker Island. For Mrs. Cannon, manually changing channels was passé. Thus, BlinkWashing was born. *wink wink ...
