Originally: Journalist.
After the Great Newspaper Crash of the Early 2000s: PR director/manager/flack
Currently: Freelance writer, PR consultant, dog walker, errand runner, movie-subtitle typist, whatever work I can get. There are no jobs in Memphis. I should have stayed in Phoenix, which was the land of plenty-of-money for me.

Past jobs of interest:
Emcee of the trained bear shows at the Memphis Zoo
Freelance writer for Star magazine back when it was a seedy tabloid (my most scandalous article was a Dennis Quaid foot fetish story)
Paid laugher for "America's Funniest Home Videos" (Those people you see laughing in the audience? They're not necessarily laughing at whatever's going on. They may be paid stock footage "actors" like I was, sitting in a small room being filmed laughing at videos of people falling down and cats being funny.)

Favorite story interview: Stephen King
Meanest story interview: Lou Ferrigno

That's all I got.
Oh, my second cousin (Dad's cousin) is the great Jo Anne Worley of "Laugh In."  ;D

Hard , i worked in a sewing plant when i was 15 sewing fancy pajamas ..it was stressfull and monotonous ., then i worked in a cotton mill when i was 16 ..now that was scary , the machines are huge and loud and everything is greasy and dusty .you could easilly get maimed
And you get bitched at constantly for not being fast enough

Whoa.  I've worked in a sawmill as a kid (making pine-box coffins, he hee), so, yeah, big scary machines are... scary.  Hope you still have all your limbs & digits!  Glad you made it through all that.  Intense.   :o  Thank you for telling it though, brings perspective to my first world probs working at home these days, lol.

 Not another chicken joke!   ;D 

Man, you have to be about five decades old to even remember Laugh In.... 

We have all had such interesting workplace experiences...  Having read the postings here, I do not feel nearly as accomplished or as ridiculous as I sometimes think....  (And I don't mean that in an insulting way at all, BGers.)

Writing nonsense on a forum.

Where do I sign up for this job? What is the pay and hours like? Is there a union and health benefits?

Now I can't stop imagining you as a bartender, JazzyMunda.  Bet you were a great one, too.

Fuck it.  I have a resume 2 1/2 pages long of office support staff positions I excelled at.  Used to work for my friends' bands loading & unloading gear on the weekends (Been known to back-up sing on occasion, as well).  Can't do that anymore because of my injury & pain.

Now, I am reduced to working a fetish phone sex line.  There.  Now everyone knows. I don't give a shit today.  Sling your stones and arrows or whatever else is handy.  Go ahead and hate me, think less of me.  Doesn't matter to me anymore.

What's my expertise?  Survival.   :-\  I gotta eat, man.

1)  2 pages?  No self-respecting HR recruiter would look at that...  If sorry, a secretarial job=1page.  Admin specialist with technical support skills, 2 pages MAX.

2)  Did the injury help her "relate" with Art "better?" Was it her pills that killed him? 

3) Roadie? FCS, if she's so slight in stature (like referred to on BG), they must have been a metal band, no self-respecting band would "hire" a petite woman to roadie.  ...presuming that this was post-transition

That would make me the happiest person on Earth.

Coming from someone who actually does work in radio, your compliments are like rain falling on the Mojave.   8)

Ha, ha, ha!  "Rain falling on the Mojave." ;D  Oh my, we must be in the dry season now.

I'd forgotten about The Drone.

....Oh, and I forgot, I own and operate 13 pinball machines in a local arcade.

I'm a happily married man who doesn't need your services redacted, but to be 100% honest the first thing that popped into my mind when I read that was "what's the number?"  LOL.  Nothing wrong with that profession, or being in porn even.  Do what makes you happy, pays the bills or both.   I bet you have some really funny stories to tell.
No doubt.  :D

To keep this from looking like a CV, my background is neuroscience focusing on pharmacology, biophysics, and molecular biology. When I'm not cutting up rats, I do endurance running, black diamond skiing, build/ride motorcycles, ingest pharmaceuticals, and watch bad movies.
Like many on here, before that, I've dug ditches, done farm work,, worked in factory, sold my body, etc etc. I almost forgot, that I just bought a cheap second hand wacom tablet and I'm trying to learn to draw. I haven't been successful. I can't even draw a smooth line with the thing.

Legit? That's cool. I'm sort of in the "death" biz, as well.   8)

Geog & sociology major.  Dabbled in telemarketing (collecting for FOP, and an AIDS charity), property management, food management, looooooong stretch of being a mom, and now in the Thanatology arena.   I also do crafts and sell on the side.



*Was this thread "dug up" because of (Redacted)? ;)

And she does have a great voice, when she's not trying to trick it up.

As far as Ms. Wade's recent antics, well, there's a lot of that in show biz, no need for them to haunt her forever.  I wouldn't hire her, but it doesn't seem to be a disqualifier for many.

My career's gone mostly the opposite direction.  I'm a Ph.D. biochemist who could be down to ditches & factory work if I weren't a klutz & now in only so-so health.

I know someone else w a background like that whose wife lurks here.
