“As has been well-documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” Obama said in a lengthy profile in the current issue of the New Yorker magazine. “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
Hooray for bad reception
I filled out a short survey for T-Mobile about my service recently. Told them things were pretty good, I’d been happy over all, but reception in my house sucks. My place is built like a Faraday cage. My phone has WiFi calling, which sorta helps. Otherwise, things are good. End survey. Move on.
Fast forward a couple weeks to now. T-Mobile called me up and is sending me a free Cel-Fi signal booster for my house. No contract. No monthly fee. It’s apparently something they’re offering quietly to people with crap reception in home.
I’m kinda dumbfounded. It was actually a really good customer service call. And they called me. I have excite.
T-Mobile has consistently blown me away with their customer service. I remember once when I’d only been with them for a few months I called because I was worried I was about to go over on minutes and wanted to check how long before my cycle would reset. I was over a full week out, and the rep offered me a free 100 minutes to get me through without my having to ask for anything. They’ve kept that standard in the last 5 years I’ve been with them. Verizon can keep their network, I’ll take T-Mobile any day.
I just want one female rapper who raps about things like rocking a fresh pair of Spanx.
The incident was captured during Blanchett’s interview with E! News' Giuliana Rancic. While it's understandable that the network would want to give viewers a complete look at Blanchett's stunning Givenchy gown — the camera is dubbed the Glam Cam afterall — Blanchett's reaction shows yet another subtle moment of sexism that even the most successful of women have to deal with.
