Looking for Work

Some of you may know that I recently interviewed for a job. Sad to say, I did not get the job. I attribute this in part to my failure to wear my kick-ass boots - the ones that say, "Hire me or else."

However, in my long hours looking at weird photos on the internet (I'm unemployed - I've got those long hours to waste), I did come up with a look I think I may use at the next interview - it's sure to get me hired!

If one of these women showed up for a job interview, would you dare tell them "No"? In fact, I think all admin should consider this basic attire for the job. There is historical precedent:

And of course friends are always helpful with suggestions for ways to earn money. Here's what some of my tech friends are doing since they were laid off:

I'm looking for a nice piece of that plastic-coated poster board for my own sign (it's Seattle - it rains - I don't want to have to make a new sign each day or week) - "Will Control Your Documents for food or a roll of quarters for laundry - Thanks!"

As long as I don't end up in a diaper listening to bible verses, I'm okay.

You need to set up a contest for the signage. OOOO. Maybe photo shoots of these suggestions in locations around Seattle. It could be a live "Where's Waldo?" Charge a nominal fee to e-mail where their prose was shown.

Signage in my neighborhood is minimal, except near Whole Foods. Most of their signs are not that inspiring, frankly.

Right now the rock is hanging out with Anne Bonney.
