The two sides of maid outfits

I think its fair to say that the difference between the 2 obvious images of maid’s outfits, is quite drastic. There is the gorgeous, formal maid outfit, that used to be worn so delightfully in the old days, by maids, in service, generally to wealthy families. I’m sure there are still households where they’re worn today, but in lesser numbers. Yes, I love the whole look, would love to wear one of those gorgeous formal ones, either in service, just for a shoot, or even just to wear one.

But in truth, most people, when you mention a maid outfit, think of the very sexy, ‘French Maid’ outfit, which tends to lack for subtlety, and is probably more used for service in different matters, or just in submission scenes. In a sense, they can be fun too, though not in a formal, service sense. I have a funny feeling I may once have even worn one, but I cant remember any details if I did. I know someone talked about it once, but whether it actually happened, well? If it did, its nearly 15 years ago, and my memory is not quite that good. As in, I did serve as a maid for someone, for a weekend, about 2003/4, but I cant remember if I got given a uniform or not, now.

Yes, I probably would, again, if I got a decent offer, but nowadays, approaching 60, I doubt I’m going to get any sexy maid offers anytime in the future! But yes, if someone wants to give me the chance to get into a formal maid outfit, and serve accordingly, then yes, I’d love to, but I’d want the formal look, not the sexy one! Or if someone wants someone to be a maid, for a shoot, or a play, or a movie…? 😉

What brought this on, I hear you ask? Well, reading the latest chapter of this, might have played a part!

The fascination of this, is despite the situation, she hopes Jane will have got a formal maid outfit, but…I dont think she minds, really, lol!

In truth, the only other role I can think of, with as much differential in uniforms, is a nurse. But if you think otherwise, let me know? Go on, be a devil!

OK, video time. So as someone who would prefer the formal maid look for myself, I choose a song that screams French Maid, from the title! I know, I’m strange like that, lol! 😛

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!
