a couple months ago, when things were pretty dire for me job-wise, i started perusing craigslist to look for additional income. before ever even responding to the cookie ad, there were a few job postings i hesitantly went after. i say hesitantly because at this point i wasn't fully committed to finding an additional job, and therefore i didn't really expect much from the one or two other posts i responded to. when i was looking, i perused the food service area (for bartending and hosting jobs), the media area (because that's what i know), and the writing area (because i think that's something i could get into). one ad was searching for a witty blogger that knew how to do internet research and was familiar with celebrity and entertainment goings-on. well, if that's not me, i don't know what is. so i responded to the ad, leaving a link to this blog for some writing samples. i didn't hear back from them, but didn't really give it a second thought. then, the cookies found me and i stopped looking.
a couple weeks ago (aka about a month and a half after responding to the original ad) i get an email in my email box regarding this ad i responded to. they were asking if i was still interested, and if i were, could i please let them know when i would be available for a phone interview. for a second i considered taking on what would essentially be a third job doing witty celebrity blogging, which i feel i could kind of do in my sleep and might be worth the extra effort. that is, until, i got to the part of their email where they dropped the name of their site. it's taken me a while to write this post because i didn't really want to immediately be like 'omg guys go here!!!' so soon after i'd responded to them (i link to this blog in my email signature), but i feel like they probably don't care, i don't care, and enough time has passed. allow me first to let you guys see the site that wanted me to write for them: flisted. i'll wait til you return...oh and, PS, that site is generally NSFW.
ok, like seriously? seriously? listen, i can sit around and talk about how hot a girl is if you want me to, but all those posts are like 'look this girl has huge tits and i want to bang her'. seriously, i would just have to write that about 10 times a day!! "monday - here's a picture of some 'hot' chick with fake tits. i bet i could totally bang her." "tuesday - this chick is so hot, i'd bang her clear to next week" "wednesday - this chick may not be that hot, but damn she's got some huge tits. i'd bang the hell out of her"
so i guess my question is - should i have taken the interview, seeing how easy the job would've been? or is it good that i politely declined? on the one hand, it would've been a totally easy, mindless job. on the other, i could never tell my mom about it and seriously, i couldn't do that every day.
also, can you read five posts there and tell me if wittiness was required for any of them?
