Jessica Simpson and Tom Cruise and You

You just knew that sooner or later I was going to have to start blogging about celebrities, right? Blech. Truth be told, most of my music was purchased when I was still in high school and the last movie I saw in the theatre was "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit." But, this headline amuses me, so I'm sharing.

Jessica Simpson: Disaster Of Epic Proportions?

Seems our friend Jessica may have "oversaturated her market with style (so to speak) over substance."

And then there's poor Tom. You remember him, bouncing up and down on Oprah declaring his love for Katie Holmes, telling Brooke Shields that she should take vitamins to recover from postpatrum depression, and generally being weird. (I'm guessing I don't need to provide a link to justify the weirdness thing.) Tom recently got transitioned out of Paramount because "his recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."

So today's lesson is your actions may affect your job and your income. Tom Cruise may be a great actor and Jessica Simpson may be a great singer, but if you annoy too many people no one is going to want to hire/watch/listen to you. Keep Tom and Jessica in mind the next time you feel your individuality is being threatened by your boss's demand that you provide reports in black ink instead of the hot pink and teal you feel express your true inner self. Singing in your cube may be fun for you, but not for your co-workers. (Yes, I know you were choir president in High School. You are still annoying your co-workers.)

So, stop being annoying and get back to work.

Nah, never got one. But I know people who balk at being told they have to use standard templates, fonts, etc.
