Things to Do Instead of Talking to Your Family: 5.47

On this Thanksgiving weekend, why not waste time on the Internet instead of talking with your family? Because really, you know you're just there for the food.

So try these fun Internet time-wasters...

The folks at Heavy.com are rapidly expanding their pop culture-mocking offerings. They may not have destroyed TV as we know it just yet but if they

Check out this link for Heavy.com's "The Superficial Friends", a zany send-up of the SuperFriends with the Olsen twins, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie taking the place of Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the rest. And from the looks of the page set-up, the Superficial Friends have more episodes on the way.

It's here: http://www.heavy.com/heavy.php?channel=superficialfriends

Or maybe you could do some learning on your vacation. Why not try a nice educational video about the scourge of PMS from "the 1950s" on YouTube?

I'd always wondered what PMS stood for.

Or if videos aren't your thing, why not do some random web surfing. My favorite method for this is the downloadable tool for your Firefox or IE browser called StumbleUpon.

Basically, with StumbleUpon, you input your preferences, from art to animation to porn (okay, I don't know if porn is an option...but it should be). Every time you're bored with a site, click the StumbleUpon button on your toolbar and you'll be magically transported to a site you've probably never heard of, but, thanks to your selected preferences, will probably enjoy.

And finally, because if you're reading this you must like blogs, several have kept up with posting over the holidays, including...
Defamer
Gawker
The Superficial
and the always-entertaining, catty-tastic Go Fug Yourself

Enjoy. And Happy Turkey Day everybody!

I apologize for posting something that has nothing to do with your current posting, but I like the idea of being anonymous. I just had a question regarding the WMA agent trainee program, and maybe you know about it, or you know someone that does, and you could post some info. about it.

I have a friend of the family that sent my resume to the Beverly hills HR dept. (because she works at the NY office) and from that I got an interview over the phone with some HR dude. Then he scheduled me an in person interview with the head of HR coming up in December. Coming from the east coast, and not knowing much about the program, i'd love to read your opinion on it, and any other info. about it. I already know that its like go get coffee for this agent, from what i've read. But if there's anything else u can tell me about it, i'd love to hear about it. I really wanna be an agent, and so i didn't apply for the Floater program. so i already know about that, and how working at WMA is great if u wanna get into anything else. bla bla bla. i guess i'm just looking for any other advice. maybe like questions they're gonna ask me in HR, or how to increase my chances of definitely getting into the program. Any info. you could provide, would be great.

Thank you.

-hopeful future agent.
