wanna apply for the ultimate job?   http://now.msn.com/slide-tester-job-advertised-by-water-park-chain
 
If I was a former track engineer for bobsled tracks I'd apply for that, just for the sake of writing full technical reports about tangents and speed loss.

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.

i've had a weird work life.



various babysitting and yardwork jobs, not to mention the art of talking cash out of relative's pockets from a young age

age 17-- teacher's assistant at a girl's school
age 19-- escort
age 19-- bouncer
age 19-- also dealt drugs
age 20-- checkout counter at a grocery store
age 20-- detasseling corn for fucking monsanto (worst job ever)
age 20-- staff member at assisted living facility for mentally challenged individuals
age 20-- escort
age 21-- restaurant hostess....lasted one night.
age 21-- escort/driver for a call girl service
age 21-- restaurant muralist, commercial artist of varying definition, theater tech
age 22-- designer for department store windows for three different (two competing) stores
age 23-- tattoo shop bitch/apprentice
age 23-- tattoo artist
age 42-- tattoo artist/theater company in-house designer/commercial artist of varying definition




edit:  although i state i worked at a checkout counter, in no way should anyone take this as evidence that i am at all capable of actually working a cash register, making change, or in any way dealing with the public.

also, 'escort' doesn't always mean what you think it means.  and, also it totally does.
