I have a new Job!

Post: # 175681Post Milims »

I just started today - here: http://www.onestopfunshop.co.uk/index.asp
It's not your run of the mill kinda job - and not for the faint hearted! :lol: Luckilly it's a friends shop and I used to work for her a few years ago - talk about lucky timing!
I had my "interview" last Saturday - Hallowe'en - her busiest day of the year! I had to go in costume - so I went as Fubar the F**k up Fairy - with tattered wings and a bottle brush for a wand! :lol: I think it may have been my accompanying poem that swung it -
I'm Fubar the Fk up Fairy
I am clumsy
I am Scary
I'll trip you up if you're not wary
(And my legs are rather hairy :oops: )
'cos I'm Fubar the Fk up fairy! :lol:

Roll on Christmas - I may be spending my working week in a Santa costume! :lol:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Well done! That looks like great fun! I'd be in a different costume everyday!

I used to work in a toy shop which was fun for a while, spending half your working day on stilts and the other half leanring to juggle made the day fly by!

The funny thing is, the lady who owns the business is working on living the good life - and guess what her favourite reference manual ( that she keeps by her bed) is? Here's a clue.......its green :lol: I'm working on signing her up here too!

it's either one or the other, or neither of the two.
