My Roots Are All Evil

I was going to keep it a secret, but you might as well know now. You'd figure it out soon enough when the headlines started shrieking about the economy plunging straight to hell without the handbasket....
I have a job again.
Yes. Someone out there was fool enough in need of my services and I am once again being paid to stand about and take up space in a way that sucks the money out of consumer pockets and into my place of employment gainfully employed.
I think I am part-time temporary seasonal, with a dash of staffing back-up. I don't care. They will pay me money. Not great sums, but money nonetheless. And the best part is, I don't have to touch one single diddly droplet of fairy floss. No longer can they call me the Fairy Floss Floozie.
No, my darlings, I am now a fully certified *insert drumroll here*:
Let the tattletale blogging begin.

Mall Wench? Like, working in a mall? Like Phoebe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High? Tell us you don't work at a pizza place, or worse, Hot Dog on a Stick!

Nope, no food is involved. However, if it would make me look anything like Phoebe Cates, I'd pogo on lemons in a heartbeat.

Hooray for the Mall Wench! All hail the Mall Wench!

Um. What's a mall wench? ;^)

It's rather like a Mall Wrench, only no clutching of nuts is involved.

Tell me you're NOT a cologne sniper.

Anything but that!

Was the WalMart Greeter gig taken?

Jim- you are now first on my cologne sniper hit list... :)

Congrats on being gainfully employed, even if it is as a mall wench.

Are you one of those girls who stands around with free samples of food?

That would be cool!

I once did a gig as a mall wench. Not good money, but good freedom of the mind.

Congratulations on landing another gig as paid business person.

I know that work is necessary to house and feed yourelf, but it's vital to keep your dreams alive and make time for creative pursuits.

You have a rare gift of writing and there has got to be a few books in there somewhere. I wish you well, whichever direction you choose.

Too bad on not getting the Mall Wrench job. That would have been TOTALLY cool!
