tra la la

I've been for two very promising interviews this week. One for deputy-ed of some business this-is-so-boring-I'm-going-die magazine, and one for editor of a retail-consumer magazine. The latter obviously way better.

Thing is, the managing editors of both publications are hard-ass chauvinists. After working with such a great boss, I feel that my tolerance for these cretinous human species will be nul and void. Anyhoo, they know what I want and what I need out of a job, so I suppose I'd better think positive.

Been doing way too much bitching and moaning lately, and now it's time to shape up or ship out.

Oh and I need to stop smoking. I'm going to be hypnotised. Apparently this works.

g'luck with the hypno, though i always thought you looked quite sexy with a cancer stick in your mouth... as sexy as a hetero female friend is allowed to think you are, that is.

Read the Allan Carr book - it's brilliant! I stopped smoking completely after reading that book and can now have the occasional few when I'm hammered but not crave more. I used to be on 20 a day (on a good day...)

you could always move in and take over and kick them out once you're the queen editor.

You are getting sleepy....You will stop smoking...You will stop smoking...And you will get the job at the great magazine...And then you will become the boss...and then you will take over the world....
Hey wait a minute...

Well I say you can train the cretins to understand the new ways of the world by not taking any crap from them!

And I bought a hypnosis CD to quit smoking but I haven't listened to it yet. Are you going to go and see an actual hypnotist??

third world ant - yes, I also thought I looked dead sexy with a cancer stick hanging from my mouth. But people have been telling me otherwise lately, and I'm getting a complex.

Zuzula - Allan Carr! I've heard he's a miracle worker. Perhaps I should just read it, then if that doesn't work, I ll get hypnotised...the options are endless :)

Ho - damn straight. but I have to give up smoking first.

Nettie - I know, it could be a dodgy experience. What if they brianwash me into becoming a pornstar???

Binsk - yes an actual one. But I'm starting to like the idea less and less...
