    I don't know if this will help, but it's a funny story... One of my clients owns an ad agency... (his accounts range from IN n' OUT Burger, Fantastic Sam, to Kawasaki... not that it matters, but it's a pretty big company anyway...) So, awhile back... they noticed one of the employees... would act kinda weird or guilty everytime one of the upper management people walk by... and would always appear to be "x-ing" something off her computer screen... So, the discreetly asked the IT to see what da heck she had been on... and sure enough, she was on Myspace all day long... But they didn't confront her about it right away... They went to her page/profile... and between her and her "friends"... she was making comments like how bored she was at work and how cool it was she was gettin' paid for being on Myspace all day... So, they started off by blocking her computer from Myspace... I guess he said they would watch her sneak from one computer to another just to log on... This girl was totally addicted, she had no clue that they were on to her... all along they were reading her comments and talking shit about her work and her bosses. I mean... she would make comments like "...I don't understand why, but I can't seem to log on Myspace from my computer..." Needless to say, they eventually fired her but they had their fun watching her like a lab rat.

    i work for the studios (movie tv etc) decorating the sets. some of my favorite are snowboarding for 2 days while we filmed in bigbear, gambling on horses while we shot in the parking lot of santa anita race track, and drinking beer and playing video games at dave and busters in san diego. theres also the run to vegas when the accountants think youre finishing up a years worth of paperwork in the office (ah... laptops)

    it's funny cause, on many employment applications now-a-days...they have an optional e-mail blank space, or people automatically include their email addy in their resume even when it's not required. What people don't know is... most employers now look them up on Myspace to see if they have a profile, thus "getting to know them" a little better long before the interview.

    And yes... I've heard a lot from my clients on some of the applicants on their "double lifestyle" :wub:
