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 I’m pretty sure it’s 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 don’t think driving a cab counts as being a Chauffeur, but I'm sure glad that thing dropped of my record.
I have to point out that it's a little strange that they ask for professionals only, but in the next sentence mention free training.
Compensation: $10-20 /hr.
February 25 – Finally my chance to be a Bond girl. You know just last night I was lamenting the fact that I’d never get to be one and then this comes along. Wow.

off with water and soap); you choose an appropriate outfit to go along. Your
job will be to dress the part and attend the party along with the rest of

19 – Ads like this always make me curious, Why does this person want this
sketch? Why just the building and nothing else? Maybe it’s to impress a
girl. In the movies the guy always pretends to have some great talent to
impress a girl.

your surfing instructor would know CPR although hopefully you’d never have

16 – I always thought it would be super interesting to be a
private investigator. I know what you’re thinking, but this is Classy

name to RTV since they mostly show reality shows now.
Do you or one of your friend's drive a piece of junk...as in, you are totally embarrassed to be seen in this car? Do you desperately dream of having a better ride?
Never fear! MTV is here to save your reputation and give your car a MAD MAKEOVER! Did we mention that we pay for EVERYTHING?!

If you meet these requirements then send an email ASAP to:
10 – Only in LA. The whole $200 fee thing seems weird. Is he charging them
a base and they get everything over that? The word fee implies they’ll be
paying for it. Or is that just his way of saying he’ll pay them that.

4 – Make it stop. First of all writers everywhere are going hungry because
of reality TV. And secondly, learn where to DRAW THE LINE (Sorry about
yelling, but this is just soo bad) talk about mining people’s pain for

guy who would be perfect for this, maybe I’ll send him an email.
