Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

That last bit? It's just a joke.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I keep setting myself all of these targets – if I blog up all of these pictures in the next couple of days then I’ll be caught up; or hunting out lists from other people’s blogs, thinking that might spur me into action (I was even eyeing up the Q&A that’s featured in the Guardian magazine every weekend - but that way lies madness). The problem lies, as it usually does, in there being one or two big things happening that I really want to blog about but that I can’t: obviously here I’m talking about work. I can’t blog about work, as I found out recently to my horror that potential employers are googling my name and finding this site.

You forget, you see, when you write stuff on your site that’s just up there to amuse your boyfriend or your sisters or your former housemate who now lives in New Zealand that other people might one day come across the crap that you’ve written and not take it in the manner in which it was intended. I like to think that the tone of this blog is one akin to the tone taken in late night pub conversations. Sure, you mean everything you say at the time, and it all seems like a really good idea, and yes, I am very pleased to hear that I’m your best friend and that we’ll be best friends forever, but no one actually expects you to go through with running the marathon or climbing Everest, even though the night before it did seem like a really good idea.

So stuff said here should always (a) be taken completely serious and (b) ignored completely, in exactly the same breath. Future potential employers should also note that I am very much a team player, but happy to work independently, and I want a job that’s both challenging and stretches me. I’m very flexible in terms of overtime and I do love to be kept busy. I’ll also give blow jobs for promotions.

Many thanks.
