November Odd Jobs
November 28 - It'll be just like that movie about the 80's with Adam Sandler.
I am seeking a
band to accompany me at week-end gigs as a wedding singer. I am just getting
started, following a friend's recommendation, and am tentatively engaged to
perform at a wedding in the Spring. Sinatra, oldies, 80s classics,
etc., are in the right musical genre. I would like to do additional gigs in the
future, perhaps some before then, make a little money on the side, and have a
fun time belting out tunes.
If interested, we can meet and discuss options.
Compensation: Depends on each event ...
November 27 -How many people does this person send Christmas cards to that she has to hire total strangers to address them?
work in shifts ranging from three to eight hours or until Christmas cards are
done. Must be available to work sometime between the hours of 10:30am - 5:30pm,
Applicants must have good handwriting and English as a primary language. Non smokers who like dogs only!
Please fax a handwriting sample along with contact information and availability.
November 26 - If I were a computer geek I would be offended by some stupid ad calling me a computer geek. But then my idea of troubleshooting is yelling at my computer, so maybe being a computer geek isn't so bad.
November 25 - Kickboxing, it's the wave - er uh sport of the future.
November 24 - Uh doesn't this guy know he can buy a dual tape deck boombox for less than $25 bucks.
November 21 -The money's not great, but it sure beats posing au natural.
Did you have an
interesting Halloween costume? Do you still have it? Would you be interesting in
posing with it for a drawing session?
The session is three hours with poses ranging from 2 minutes all the way to a half an hour. We draw in a gallery after it closes for the day. Pay is $18 dollars an hour.
Compensation: $18/hour for a three hour session
November 20 - I read this book once and the main character was a commitment phobic guy who finally decided to propose to his girlfriend. To prove he wanted to settle down he bought a wardrobe from Ikea for her and went over to her house to put it together. 5 hours later when she came home he was still sitting on the floor surrounded by odds and ends. He should have placed an ad like this. I do wish this guy had spell checked his ad first though.
November 19 -Did you ever see that episode of friends where Joey was a cologne sprayer and he was in a feud with another cologne sprayer and then the other guy inadvertently sprayed the cologne in some woman's eyes and got fired. Uh no me either, but the story does point out the potential dangers of a job like this.
2 lovely girls
with good skin needed for new book and skincare launch at party. every major
magazine and tv show will be in attendance. send email and pic. you will spray
guests with perfume.

November 18 - I guess it never occurred to me to wonder where the patterns for men's suits come from.
November 17 - I guess it's not any stranger than running for governor.
November 14 - Come to this party, play one song then go home. They don't even mention if you get free food or not. I mean haven't they ever heard of starving musicians - or maybe that's starving artists. Whatever.
November 12 - I was gonna email them, but I got too anxious when I realized they couldn't even spell study correctly twice in one ad.
November 10 - What do you mean no experience necessary? You mean they aren't really psychic? Dionne Warwick where are you?
November 7 - I think the problem here is that people are confusing 15 minutes of fame with several hours of humiliation. Although the ad is a bit vague so maybe they'll just use the footage for research purposes.
Observational Research - we want to make a documentary about your life
We are a research company who hang out with people and film their lives to see how products, brands and services fit in.

Compensation: £175 for 3 full days of hanging out
November 6 - He says he's shooting a pilot, but something sounds odd to me. Can you say cable access? Then again with so many random cable networks these days, who knows.
Got style and personality? Be on my TV show!
I'm an independent producer/writer/director developing a fashion-oriented TV
pilot. I need men and women who think they have a flare for fashion.
You need to find duds at thrift stores and turn them into fabulous ensembles on barely no budget at all! You have to have A LOT of personality and convey it on camera. I want flamboyancy and attitude!
If this sounds like you, please contact me.
Compensation: Clothing and residuals
November 5 - This is so cool. I mean a professional fiddler probably has a lot of trouble finding work these days. Besides there's no better music to drink to than Irish music.
I am looking for a fiddler (or duo) who can play Irish and other traditional
music for a small audience. May be a few extra bucks in it as I will ask for
tips at the end of the performance but at least $200 is definate for this short
Compensation: 1.5 hours of work for $200
November 4 - Huh?? The funny thing about this job is that they tell you absolutely nothing about it. Uh sure yeah I uh want the job. Whatever. This guy's a dumbass.

November 3 - When I was in Venice I saw this glassmaking demonstration and I thought to myself, now that would be a cool job. If you think that too, then this job's for you.
