Come Again?

Let me just start by saying, I am not actively looking for a new job. However, I have been approached several times over the last few months by a particular company who seems to think I am a perfect fit, aside from the fact that I don't want to move to San Fransisco. And I don't want to work for magazines. And I don't meet their minimum requirements. Clearly, they are getting a little desperate to fill this job. Today, they sent me an updated job description, and I found this little nugget:

"Must be able to use standard office equipment such as copiers, faxes, mailing machinery. As part of a multi-media entertainment company, employees may be subjected to work-related images including content such as: sexually explicit images, nudity, and graphic violence. Employees should be willing to work with this type of content. _insert company name here_ does not condone the viewing of this content where not work-related."

But by all means, please view porn on the company dime. . .

So basically, I can make $150,000+ a year in this position, but I have to move my family, hire a nanny, and sell my soul to do it. When you put it that way. . .

Sounds like a great job. But 150K isn't nearly enough to live in San Francisco. I thought selling your soul was a requirement to work in media anyway.

I've been worried all day that I'll forget to bake Christopher's cake tomorrow! And I'm one present short for goody favors so I'm desperately hoping some child's mom will forget to bring him. I have forgotten goody favors for Marty's birthdays not one, not two, but three years in a row. His birthday is the last day of school usually and somehow it escapes me. One year I bought everyone a candybar and a soda from the vending machine outside the Laser Tag place and seriously, they were thrilled. Last year I said they all got to get those special take-home cups at the concession stand. Again, they were thrilled. What happened? They all left them in the car when I dropped them off home. Why have we created such insane party standards? Who did this?!

I very much subscribe to the "Fake it until you make it." mentality. Apparently, they just don't realize I'm still faking it!

Christina- I have been very lucky to work in media and avoid 99% of the crap. I'm hoping to continue that trend.

Angela- I KNOW!!! And it's 3 am and I just realized I haven't wrapped Evan's presents for his actual birthday tomorrow- today. UGH!
