REAL Dream job

Learning how to MAKE WINE!  This kid knows everything there is to know about drinking it…so learning to make it would be AMAZING.  Unfortch, the deadline is TOMORROW!  Damn thee, fates!  I’ll never get anything together in time. Maybe my parents can help me throw something together tomorrow on our rapid fire tour of Red Hook.  This job really is so cool.  $10,000 a month PLUS accomodations for SIX MONTHS.  I’m such an assclown for just finding out about this.  Check out the videos and submit your own.

A Really Goode Job.

Get Paid To Talk to Old Men in Bars

Grandpa's...the gin in me says "Love 'em!"OMG!  DREAM JOB!  I LOVE GRANDPA’S!  And, anyone who’s gone to a bar with me, knows that I flock to them like a moth to a FLAME after I’ve knocked back a few.  I drink gin-aka grandma juice-coincidence?  I think NOT!  Unfortch this isn’t a real position…but it sounds damn fun!  The other problem is that $50 doesn’t even get you close to hammered here in NYC.  But I’m totally applying!

TO DO: Eat more deep fried stuff

Next step on the FAT-ASS EXPRESS!  DONUTS!  Seems strange to be posting this so soon after the ‘spring clean your liver’ article, but since it snowed today, I think that means it’s technically not quite time to deep clean my innards yet 😀  SO DONUTS!  Here’s a map of the ‘best’ donuts in the city.  Donuts count as cheap food, right?

Dream Job or Nightmare…

I had no idea there was such a thing as a cat circus…I have one cat and I can’t get her to do shit other than nap, eat, and bother me when I sleep.  She’s a dream.  I can’t imagine trying to train and TRAVEL with cats.  On the other hand…the pictures are completely amazing.

Dream Job: Talent Scout?

 

 

 

As someone who is overly critical of everything/everyone around her, this might be a winner por moi!  This article pretty much flies in the face of everything else I’ve read about the recruiting industry but I guess it makes sense that as the few companies with open spots are being indudated with three times the amount of job applicants, they need some help spotting the keepers and the losers…oh-sorry-less qualified applicants-which is pretty much everyone since you’ve got former CEOs, lawyers, and grad schoolers applying for everything from UPS delivery man to receptionist.  Good times.  Anyhoo, I also LOVE the idea of “hunting for game-changing stars”…sounds so Predator…so carnal.  Love it!  Unfortch I’m pretty sure the reality is that it’s a lot of paper fights just like lawyering.  Either way, sounds like an intersting gig…and I’m happy to hear this industry is still alive and thriving in areas since everything I’ve been reading implied that recruiters themselves were job hunting for other careers.

Dream Job: Professional Gambler?

I HATE Delaware.  Pretty much anyone who knows me can tell you this.  BUT…if they introduced sports gambling…now that gives me a reason to bury the hatchet.  Delaware would still suck but at least it would give me an excuse to stop in rather than pass through.  Strangely enough, I seem to do pretty well when it comes to sports bets…so if they pass this…perhaps I can become a Professional Gambler and really make my parents proud!  They make it look so sexy on all the poker tournaments.  And, of COURSE I would WIN ALL THE TIME, right?  The house NEVER loses.  Ever.
