Buzz on the Web The Funniest Lateness Excuses from RWC Users! You Should Definitely Check Them Out!

Excuses for being late from RWC writersI realize that some of you might object to this post. Let me reassure you that these are selected from long deactivated accounts at

As you might infer, the main reason they are no longer active writers is their tardiness. Saying that they were endlessly creative in offering these excuses hardly captures it. There are literally hundreds of similar messages. I am actually considering creating a Hall of Fame for these folks, if management approves. Of course, I am joking.

These are listed in numerical order, so, if you want to, you can leave your vote for one or more of them in the comment area. Let us know which ones you liked most, and I will inform you folks which one is the “winner” – just for laughs! :)

These all come directly from the text of the messages, with minimal editing for readability, and an occasional comment.

1. “…I left my keys in the car and I closed it. I can’t open the apartment – so I can’t access my Mac. My BF has spare keys to my car! I will have to wait for him. He lives on the other side of the town, so it might take couple of hours for him to get here…I’m sorry, I’m really, really sorry.

Buzz on the Web Happy Halloween, Guys!

RWC Halloween preparations I hope that you love this holiday as much as I do! I mean, what other official holidays allow you to wear ridiculous outfits and get wasted with your friends, and that’s all at the same time (except for maybe St. Patrick’s Day) :)

Since practically no one will be at the office on Sunday, we’ll have our party for the Halloween organized on Friday. Since the trend right now is…zombies, we have got everything prepared – ketchup as a substitute for blood, hands made of jelly, because zombies need a snack too :) and tons of other stuff.

How do you celebrate your Halloween? What’s your all-time favorite costume that you wore, or maybe someone else did? Share your thoughts and ideas!

Buzz on the Web The Environmental Crisis – What is YOUR Personal Impact on Our World?

How environmental friendly are you?Green is so fashionable these days! Whenever checking out the Answers section of LinkedIn recently for interesting topics (more info on in this article), I notice a multitude of environmental questions.

People are evidently trying to educate themselves about bio-fuel, pollution, and other such issues.

Plenty of evidence, on and off the web, demonstrates how humans have damaged the Earth. This has set me to thinking about our individual impact on our world, through our daily actions and choices.

It’s too early and too uncertain yet, but may soon partner an environmental NGO. We may work with them to help the world go “green” by increasing each employee’s environmental awareness. If this actually transpires, I will be sure to highlight it in our blog.

In the meantime, I’d like to share my thoughts on how each of us can help our planet!

Buzz on the Web Kenya Gets a Democratic Upgrade!

Democratic Update for Kenya is On the Way!You know how some folks are always vocal about our democratic rights and Constitutional freedoms being” taken from us by our government”. Well, in some places around the world, the government is actually doing the opposite!

For example, I stumbled upon a series of articles highlighting the national referendum in Kenya which was to decide whether the citizens should accept a new Constitution. Kenya, like many other countries on the African continent, is far from democratic. With its crime levels and corruption, it struggles to achieve a decent level of stability.

That is why the new, updated Kenyan Constitution was crafted to overhaul the way the country is governed. It may have a wider impact in the whole region. It is considered to be a progressive document, for the most part (although it has been criticized both for giving special preference to Islamic law, and, on the other hand, for allowing any abortion at all).
