Fly me to the moon (and other silly job options)

Earlier this week, while spending too much time on Facebook, I came across some quote from Richard Branson, something about going for the job you want, not the job you have to do, and yes, you know me, I made some witty comment about, in that case, he should offer me a job as a stewardess on his Space Shuttle thing, because I would certainly enjoy doing that. No, I doubt he ever saw my comment, I’m pretty sure it was one of his many minions that posted it, not him, and I doubt very much that anyone ever looks at the replies there, anyway! Besides which, I’m pretty sure that at my age, and given my state of physical health, I wouldnt be the ideal candidate for that role!

Anyway, my friend Stacie saw my witty comment, and said that it would certainly be one of my dream jobs, and she’d be right on that. The outcome of all that, was that a few hours later, I found a photo posted to my timeline from her, saying that this was me, doing that job. This is it!

Airline stewardess

Yes, I know, I wish I was that cute! Besides which, that plane looks more like my era, than any future craft, circling the Earth, but thats besides the point! One thing did come to mind, with those space flights, will every passenger, and therefore, presumably the stewardesses, have to wear a full space suit? Or will they be pressurized in some way that they wont be needed? Cant see that, as surely part of the thing, is the whole weightlessness bit? Not that I’m sure, do the modern space shuttle things require a full space suit to be worn for flights? Yes, you can tell I’m someone that grew up on the Apollo flights of the 60’s, cant you?

But yes, Mr Branson, or whoever is doing the HR for those space flights, I could be very interested in flying into space as a worker. 😉

Oh, and as a space thing, which might only work for those who read my CJ stories, this could just be her, Todd, and her spacecraft, just saying!

CJ and Todd

The other silly job option that got mentioned this week, was actually at a serious place, when I signed on at the Job Center yesterday. My Work Coach and I, were discussing options for me, yesterday afternoon, and I admitted that its got to the point, where any legal offer, and I’d consider it. I did jokingly say that I’d pass on the (fictional) role of French Maid, but in truth, at present, if the money was decent, then yes, fine, I’d do it! Fine, I’d hope for a nice uniform, but anyway…

So anyway, she retaliated by asking me if I’d be interested in working in the Job Center, instead of just signing on there. You guessed it, I said yes. So application form done, test completed, lets see what happens! To be honest, even if I wasnt desperate, it would be an interesting role, so it would have appealed regardless.

But yes, anyone reading this, got any kind of legal opening, try me! Yes, that does include French Maid roles, believe me! In a sense, the crazy, and left field stuff would appeal to me more than the hum drum, but besides that…anything at all is good!

Right, the video. Getting back to the first half of this, lets go with something vintage (60’s), and classy! A great lady!

To be like a robot!

OK, if you thought you were going to get a boring birthday post, sorry, I’ll disappoint you. But given that most of the popular (even years on) threads on here seem to involve brainwashing, robotization, and the like, this might please some.

Recently, I’ve been a wicked woman, and started reading a few mm sex stories, even if that sort of sex holds even less interest for me, than anything involving women. Which lets face it, with my love of sex…rolls eyes! I’ve picked on a few that play to my personal perves, and just hoped (successfully) that they didnt get too robust with the sex, which thankfully, they havent. One author who has taken my eye of late, is The Guardsman. Stories at,

http://192.155.80.152/Authors/theguardsman.html

These I can love for so many reasons. Not only do the men get to wear rubber clothing, as their normal garb, they also get to wear armor, with a visor over their faces, for complete dehumanization at times. To add to that effect, they dont have names, only numbers, once transformed. So yes, no identity, armor bodies, just like, err, robots! And yes, they even get controlled by an AI on top of all that!

OK, fine, big snag for me, that you will have noticed, this delicious treatment is handed out to men only! Well yes, I guess thats likely to be the case, if thats your preference in life, guys? I must admit, the previous time I wrote to someone about their methods, and adapting it for women, he explained that idea held no interest for him, not that I was totally surprised to be honest, but anyway. It involved, err, extracting cum from men, by a rather delightful piece of technology, I must say. If you want to read his stuff, its at

http://192.155.80.152/Authors/The-Extractor.html

So, when I wrote to the Guardsman, making the same suggestions about adapting it for women, I was expecting much the same reply. Wrong, I’ve got into quite a session of emails about the subject, though to be honest, most of it would leave the women in a very butch manner, if not more manly than that! So no, ideally I’d pass on the mastectomy, and the stuff, and head shaving wouldnt be my first choice either, but…robots, especially like Maria dont have hair, so just maybe…? Would I do it? Yes, probably, though I’d wince at the genital mutilation, and mastectomy, I suspect. The hair shaving, oh, at a push…Well, most people think of lesbians prototypically with cropped hair, dont they? Yes, because I’d look like, and be controlled like a robot, and be nothing more than a number!

Fine, despite talk otherwise, sadly, its not for real, because if it was, especially at present, I’d do it!

Right, video time. This video, I have to thank a fellow author for discovering, she being Tabico. It has some great outfits, looks like something out of Metropolis (though it isnt), or some crazed 30’s film! Oh, and a little bit of electricity, too. The music isnt my thing, but the video sure is!

Just hooping around

Well, given that the stats seem to suggest that most of my readers on here, come from the US, this might make sense to most. Pretty fair to say that most non North American readers will say “what the hell?”, and move on! Yes, college basketball playoffs!

I’ll be honest, my interest in NBA basketball is pretty much zero, which only very slightly less than my interest in the college game, to be honest. But for some strange reason, whenever ‘March Madness’ comes around, here I am filling out my bracket, of college names, most of whom mean little or nothing to me! I sort of follow the 3 teams from the state of Kansas (Kansas, Kansas State, and Wichita State), but that really is about it. I guess I ought to look at the LA teams, but I dont! Oh, and this year, Kansas State were so awful at basketball, they havent even made the playoffs! Equally, Kansas are one of the favorites to win it all!

So, why then, did I spend a while this afternoon, filling out my bracket for the tournament, and my round by round one, for something I have no interest in, wont watch, and will probably only laugh at how badly I do. You tell me, but it seems to be something else I’ve been Americanized into doing!

No, you dont want to know my clueless selections, honest you dont! Not sure that even I want to do that, in truth! But every year, seemingly without fail, I give it a go. One of these years I might work out why!

Right, not only will you have to suffer my college basketball musings, you can suffer the video too. Oh fine, its awful, but at the same time, so cute. So yes girls, lets put a ring on it, in basketball terms at least!

Everyone could be a winner?

You know how every so often, you find an article that revives your faith in human nature, you might say this is one of them?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/news/12187042/Chocolate-makes-you-smarter-study-suggests.html

So yes, in that case, if anyone wants to make me smarter, then you could always buy me some chocolate for my birthday on Wednesday. Because, lets face it, at 58 (as I will be then), I need all the help I can get! It doesnt even have to be expensive chocolate, I’d take any offers at present! I know, anyone in the US reading this, or reading it after the event, then fine, you missed it, but knowing me, I still wouldnt say no to an offer of chocolate!

Alright, fine, if someone wants to do the exact opposite to me, turn me into a mindless obedient being, then that would be good by me too, especially at present, as I could then have no further concerns about all this ghastly job hunting lark! Oh, and besides which, I’d enjoy every moment of it, anyway! If anyone wants to do that to me for real, or in a really intense play session, then I’d say that could be the perfect birthday present. Mind, unless you’re in the UK, you’re going to have to pay for me to come, and be brainwashed, but feel free to do so!

Just maybe, I wouldnt say no to a full body, metallic silver bodysuit, with, or without mind controlling electrodes, just saying… 😉

Oh, right, if there is some wealthy person out there, with more money than they need, and the desire to spend some of it, 4 more weeks in a Hollywood apartment would probably do me the world of good! I know, I know, no expectations whatsoever. Mind, if there is a Hearst (of either gender) out there, looking for their Marion Davies, let me know lol! Mind, a job offer from LA would just be amazing!

Yes, I cant say I’m overly looking forward to my birthday, because lets face it, at the moment, life isnt great! Agreed, a job could pick things up a lot, but just at the moment, the words, hitting my head against a brick wall, seem apt on that count! Maybe thats why the idea of having all those nasty thoughts removed from my head might seem so popular with me at present! So please!

The video, is going back to where we started this blog, something that could make us all feel like winners. You buy me some chocolate, I get smarter, and probably happier too. You feel good for making some poor church mouse’s day, by buying her a small treat. Yes? So as the song says…

Job application forms, or how to save trees!

I’ll be honest, I have no many trees have been sacrificed to create all the application forms that I’ve filled in over the last year. But yes, I should imagine its been more than a few! Even if they were what I called a sensible size, it would be a few, but in truth, they seem to have grown in size, to a ridiculous extent over the years. What used to be a maximum of 2 or 3 sheets of paper, now seem to be a minimum of 6, and for example, the application form for the job I went for on Monday, was 10 pages long! And given how many applicants a building society must get through in a year, especially as this includes all the rejects (yes, me again), its a frightening thought.

Even more depressing, in an ecological sense, is the fact that I have another interview with the same firm tomorrow, for a shop job, as opposed to a head office job, but no, they cant use the same form again, I need to waste another 10 pages of paper, even though they got all my details 4 days earlier.

But just when you’re thinking that 10 pages, for a prospective job applicant is a crazy amount of paper, I can beat that! I have got an interview on Monday, for a job on the outskirts of Leeds, and their application form is 15 pages long! Seriously? I want to give this job a go, but given the location (need to rely on a company shuttle bus to get there), I’m not sure how viable it will be, and I dont want to get someone to print off 15 sheets of paper, for a role I probably wont take up, in an ideal world. But its Catch 22, I need a job, so, aargh! Not sure what to do!

I guess what frustrates me more, is the whole modern thing. Yes, back in the 70’s, and 80’s, when you did a paper application form, that was the record that was kept of you, they had no choice. Nowadays, those applicants that actually get selected, will have all that data entered on to a computer database, and that will be it. I know, some of it might get recycled, but I suspect that given all the private information on there, that it ends up being destroyed?

Oh, and secondary rant. Why does it all have to cost us? In the old days, if a company wanted to waste reams of paper on job application forms, they had to provide you with the paper. Nowadays, they attach the form to an email, and expect you to print off, and fill in the forms, and return them! Which might be fine, if you own a printer, and can afford reams of paper, but those of us who cant, and have to rely on someone to print them off for you…

Last amusing moment re modern job interviews. This morning, I had a phone interview for a shop job at a building society, which I actually got through. I know, amazing. My reward, a psychometric test to do, which I battled with, and an hour or so later, getting told my answers didnt meet their desired parameters, so that was that! I dont get these things, there were times when choosing between 4 things, all of which were fairly relevant, and others where none really fitted me, I dont know! I get this feeling I’m not cut out for this modern world, and I’ll be glad when its all over, seriously!

Right, a treat, 2 videos tonight, though neither are the original group. Blue Monday was a massive hit in the 80’s, using all the modern music technology at the time. But what if it had been recorded in 1933, with the instruments of that era? This, I guess?

While tracking it down on You Tube, I found this, from 1999! Yes, I know, but its something out of a mind control story fantasy, this video! And given where I’m posting it…

Its no fun, with(out) illegal aliens

OK, so fine, its a Sunday, its a slow day for news. But as I will not get anything done tomorrow (job interview, ghastly journey, at weird hour) for sure, I thought I’d throw something out, and then if I dont post again till Wednesday, no one can say anything!

Fine, I know, politics, not a good idea on something like this, but each to their own, just remember my political views dont necessarily match yours! Yes, I match Jean Harlow, Democrat by nature lol. And no, that doesnt make me a Hilary fan, either! In fact, if it was her, against say, Kasich, I’d vote Kasich! Yes, I know!

But this isnt about a quiet mannered, sensible politician, this is about Hurricane Donald. Thats right, cant stand the man! But one of his claims is that he will rid the US of all illegal immigrants. Yes, I saw an article about this, which doesnt make this idea so great.

It seems if this happened, the US farming, fishing, care, and construction industries would just about grind to a halt. Yes, large percentages of workers in those industries are illegal immigrants! And I’m talking at a minimum level of about 16%, some a lot, lot more! The other one that got mentioned that had special meaning to me, was the food service industry. Especially the fast food industry! Why does that have special meaning to me? Oh, maybe because I was offered a job in that industry, back in 2003, despite no paperwork to do so. No, I’m not naming the franchise, but its a well known one, and they knew I didnt (at that point) have the paperwork to work there, but they didnt care, they offered me a job!

Yes, in hindsight, I did the crazy thing, and said no, and flew back to the UK instead. I guess the thrill of handing over fast food to customers didnt quite hold enough appeal for me! But yes, fine, I could have got in the US as a worker, and who knows where it might have led from there?

Oh, the other amusing fact, if all the illegal immigrants in the US could even be found, and were dispatched over the border, on 650 buses a day, and none got back in, it would take over 20 years to clear them all out! So seriously, its not going to happen!

No, I’m not saying I want to come in as an illegal immigrant, but I’d love to come in, even only temporarily, as a genuine one. So if any businessman (I think I’ve burnt my bridge with Mr Trump somehow) wants to sponsor me, to work, in the US, doing anything reasonable, please, give me the chance!

Someone tells me the US gives £20,000 to anyone moving to Alaska, is that true? If so, I assume thats only open to Americans, right? If not, if someone in Anchorage wants to offer me a sponsored job, even better! Please, let me know, someone.

OK, the video. Yes, no originality in the choice here!

To take you to his mansion in Nome

Fine, challenge, anyone that can work out what the video is tonight, before you look, I’m seriously impressed, because this is about as cryptic as they get. There will be a possible clue before we get there, which might help, but even so…

Last year, I achieved something that I never thought I would, as I’m not one of those workers who flies everywhere (Yes, Kate, I’m only teasing you x), I always thought that gaining any real status on the couple of airlines I’m a frequent flyer on, would be way beyond my abilities. Then of course, I flew to LA twice, in the same year, with the same pair of airlines, and lo and behold, I hit silver status with Delta Airlines (video clue, here), until the end of 2016, with of course, the possibility for more. Except for the fact, that as things stand, getting to fly anywhere this year, seems to be becoming an impossible dream! Yes, so frustrating. Even more so, given that I so want to make a flight in my new name, but anyway…

Oh, for the curious, the other I have membership of, American Airlines. I used to have both them, and US Airways, before they amalgamated, but I’m not even close to any form of status there, all the same. But yes, Delta is the one I want to fly with this year, given the chance!

And this weekend at least, where would I love to fly to? Why, Anchorage. An extension to Nome would be even more heavenly, but being in Anchorage would do me just fine. Why? Because as I write this, the ceremonial start, through the city, of the Iditarod is taking place. The race proper, starts tomorrow, a little way out of town in Willow. Then 85 incredibly brave teams, will set off, for just under 1000 miles of Alaskan wilderness, until they reach Nome. No, are you kidding, I wouldnt do that for a million dollars, even now! But would I love to see them set off, or even better, finish, you bet I would!

Maybe one day I will finally get to Alaska, its my dream. Being practical, at my age, and with my health issues (joints), I’d have to do overnight stops en route, both ways, if I did. So fine, even if the financial situation ever improves, its not likely to happen until post retirement, simply because of time issues, in my life. So I suspect it will be one of my dreams, to my dying days, somehow, getting to Alaska. No, not in March, too cold in all probability, but at any point in the year, would be good.

Oh fine, the video. If you managed to get the cryptic clues worked out, and come up with this song from 1973, I’m impressed. Somehow, I doubt anyone did!
