February Odd Jobs


February 27   Points for writing a very amusing ad. Although I must say the whole nudity thing adds a slightly disturbing note to it, but Im pretty sure its a joke. They might be serious about the no work release candidates thing though.

the wheat from the chaff

..packing up and moving north, to where my kids can rub their grubby little hands in the rich silted soil of the fecund pioneer valley. i need help -- non-flaky, no excuses, self-motivated, enough common sense to put the breakable stuff on top -- in other words, a few kindred spirits who can find their behinds with both hands, can pour beer out of a boot if the directions are on the sole, etc. no mandatory nudity. moving isn't so much fun -- so no sighers, whiners, rotarians, or work release candidates. for those who help me out in this pinch the rewards will be in this world; of this one may rest assured. let's hear from you; time's a'wasting.

Compensation: ten bucks an hour plus some great gimmes


February 26   I dont think driving a cab counts as being a Chauffeur, but I'm sure glad that thing dropped of my record.
