Ryan Seacrest causes an awkward moment with a blind guy.

didn't help the interview
Feb 3rd, 2010 by beth the other admin

I was scheduled to have an interview at Panera in the afternoon after I was supposed to pick my brother and cousin from school.  As I pulled up to the school circle drive my cousin and brother decided to run up and jump on to the hood of my car.  Luckily I wasn’t driving very fast.  I thought, “Okay, no problem. I’ll just give them a lift to their bags a bit up the drive.”  I went slowly and it was fine.  Mind you, these boys were in 8th grade and I should have known this wasn’t going to end well.  As I came to their bags and started to stop the car my cousin jumped from the hood off to the side and my brother jumped from the hood only aiming for the front of the car and not the side.  As I slammed on my brakes I realized that my brother had landed just slightly to the left and only his shoe was run down by my tire.  The tire only scraped the side of his shoe and drew a little blood from his ankle.  Well, this was a full-on public school with hundreds of children — everyone freaked out.  The police were called, the fire department was called and an ambulance was called.  We had to wait in the principal’s office until our parents came.  The cops had to question everyone in my car, which included a sister and another cousin, I think.  The cop pulled me into his car and gave me a talking to.  He told me that normally they would have to write up a report about it but since we were family and it was not done maliciously then they would let it go.  While we were waiting for all this to process I had to call Panera to tell them I needed to reschedule the interview because I was involved in an accident. I didn’t know how else to put it.  They were happy to do so.  Well, when I went in for the interview the lady doing it asked how the accident went and what happened.  So I told her, because I couldn’t lie.  She raised her eye brows at me and I didn’t know what to say so we just moved on to the interview.  She never called me back.

Kanye West makes another embarrassing and awkward blunder. I feel sorry for Mike Meyers having to be associated with him.

flaca
Feb 3rd, 2010 by beth the other admin

I lived in Latin America for awhile and over there the people tend to notice when a person gains or loses weight, even if it’s only a few pounds. Every time I went to the States and came back, they would immediately comment on how I had gotten fatter. This didn’t bother me too much because I’m the type of person that appreciates people’s honesty.

Some of you may already know this but every Latin American country’s culture can be different from another country’s culture.  So when I went to Venezuela, I couldn’t help but notice that the people there kept calling me “flaca” which means “skinny girl” in Spanish. After hearing it so many times, I started to think about it. “Wow, am I really that skinny that people are noticing it?”

I honestly started letting it go to my head a little bit. When people would say it, I was so flattered that I would uncontrollably let out this ridiculously goofy smile. I had seen how latins were so observant and had experienced how honest they were, so I thought why would they call me flaca if they didn’t think that I was truly skinny? In conclusion, I was convinced; I’M FLACA for once in my life! How exciting! 😀

Now in reality, I’m an average-sized American. I’m not skinny by any means nor am I fat but I, myself, would say I’m a chunky monkey.

So one day, my really good friend and I went to the market. It was filled with people, we weaved in and through the crowds. We came to this really large woman sitting on floor, making some bracelets to sell. We needed to get around her so my friend asked, “Excuse me flaca, can we get by?” This threw me off! WHAT!?!? My mind was racing. Why did he just call her flaca? She was the opposite of flaca, she was huge! He just lied to her. So I asked him, “Why did you just call her flaca? She’s not flaca!” and he responded, “What was I supposed to say? ‘Excuse me fatty, can we get through?’ I said it to make her feel good.” I looked at him and while laughing said, “You call me flaca! So, you just call me that to make me feel good?” He shrugged and kept walking.
