Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...


I needs me a job

30 year college graduate seeking work. Preferably, job must be high-paying, with little or no office time or work-from-home time. Must require no effort, physical, mental, or otherwise. I will be accepting interviews only from employers in the "no boss" sector.
*I am an enthusiastic sunbather
*I love to dine in good restaurants
*I have a distinct ability to nap at any given moment and I am very tenacious in my efforts to stay asleep
*I am a highly dedicated smart-ass
*I have an unparalleled love for prosciutto
*I am assertive with my opinions regarding wine consumption, odd behavior of Italians, and whether or not Martha Stewart annunciates her Ts out of correctness or pretension.
I would be an obvious asset to any company seeking individuals who have mastered the art of an eloquent, intelligent happy hour debate about why Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston, as well as a honed skill for imitating Donald Trump.
If you are a passive employer who needs to fill a position in your company with someone as qualified as me, please call immediately, as long as it is not before noon, or during the hours of Law and Order (original and SVU), E.R., or The Bachelor.

my hubby read somewhere about a "pizza taster" position. Now that is something worth looking into. ;) well, if you don't mind the extra kilos. (it won't work like wine tasting where you spit the wine out afterwards... ;)

Although my job comes in a close second, my job that i will be searching for once I get my immigration to Canada will be just that! I'll just have to change a few of my tv shows to Dr. Phil, Oprah, Rick Steve's and Don't forget Your Passport...

Yeah I'm odd like that... But I'm not there...

Another ER fan. How I LOVE that programme. Always have, always will.

Am I the only one who really fancies Dr Clemente? (I mean REALLY fancies) He makes me feel odd all over!

...which reminds me that the new season of ER starts tonight! Yay! Although my husband just started watching Gangs of New York so I might not be able to see it. Well I should be sleeping anyway.

Actually with this resume you should start your own company and then hire a bunch of people just like you.

I'm always looking for something good!! I work too hard.

When in Naples, do as the Napolitans do: pretend you work, look very busy, wear sunglasses and sit a café and behave like you're on a constant break from work. Wave that scarf a lot and talk on the phone, hold a pen & pretend you write in an daily planner, then have another coffee, 'cos it's time for a well deserved break!

Tracie the posts are as funny as the blog today. . . . let me know when you find that job. . . I'm sure I could break away from mine to learn a new trade :)

Hey, I can imitate Donald Trump to, watch! YOU'RE FIRED! Pretty good, huh?!

Tracie, if I ever get a business off the ground, and need someone to hangout with, I'll keep you in mind.

I think it might be a while before you find a job, you're overally qualified, but good luck anyway!

In case you found such a job, could you mail me the employer, maybe he needs someone, studying silly things, too.

questa è la prima volta che leggo il tuo blog e questo post fa troppo ridere! Mi sa che scrivi davvero bene! Non vedo l'ora di leggere oltre le tue avventure e di conoscere un po' meglio la tua storia che mi incuriosisce un sacco!
A presto, Anna Maria
