When It Rains, It Pours... Job Offers

Where has that damn Robin Leach put himself? I need him (snaps fingers) pronto and yes! I am rolling the "r" in "pronto".

Why, you ask, do I need Mr. Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous? A show, I might add, that my parents were once on. Indeed they were having dinner at Ma Maison, which if you are hip to your worthless 80's trivia you will know was a very posh and private and twee restaurant and it was in fact so posh and private and twee that they had an unlisted phone number, and really, having that innocent meal caught on tape was one of the more humiliating moments of my father's life and most likely a highlight of my mother's...but, I digress. My need for The Leach stems from a pretty little offer to discuss the writing of and the telling of glamorous lifestyles.

Hello, My name is Kristin and I feel over my head.

I want to sit down and bang out a fascinating and funny article on "Lifestyles" but 2 things keep coming to mind: The condom brand and I don't have one. Shut up. A lifestyle. I don't have a lifestyle.

But, maybe by tomorrow morning I will be able to fake it.

If I give him the link to this blog, you'll see many entries mysteriously disappear... including this one... these people are, gulp, are part of the school family.

Let me share some of Mom's great advice ...
Fake it till you make it :)

Nicki said...

details....

Oh, The Joys said...

Sure you have a lifestyles. It's the kind of lifestyle where you are running 50,000 miles per minute without enough coffee in order to smash the new bathroom tile three times, decorate an entire Ritz Carlton Ballroom in black and white for $800 bucks or less and only occassionally do you get to pause for toddler twirling.

Kel said...

oh heck - and I was sitting here in the rain hoping from the post title that you were commiserating

Nikki said...

Kristin - Hush and write. Get drunk and blow off the steam if you need to.

You'll be fine.

Kristin said...

Hi All-

Thanks for being so positive... I am chanting, "fake it"...

This is actually a different thing... I will give you the details (here in the comments section) when I get back from my meeting! AHHHHH... MEETING!!!

Kel said...

Sorry sweetie, you lost me at condom. ;)

I wish you all the best, and I'm waiting on baited breath to hear (see) details! WOOT!

Kristin said...

My mantra has always been: fake it. I pretend that I very confidently know what I'm doing and so far, it's worked without fail.

Congrats and good luck Kristin!

Becky said...

lol! thanks for the heads up if it disappears!

Kevin Charnas said...

Go get 'em tiger!
It's allll about attitude.

Lisa & Jeff said...

So I take it this is another job offer? Congrats! I think you can pull off just about anything...I doubt you will even HAVE to fake it!

Joannah said...

Hmmm...

That's a little cyptic, Kristin (Cryptic Kristin?), but it sounds interesting. Who knew your innocent foray into the blogosphere would lead to job offers?

Kristin said...

Joannah,

The other "Kristin" is of Tall n' Lucky... she is an amazing writer and mother of the very cute Nolan... she is on my blogroll and I highly reccomend giving her a read!

I know, it looks as though I am posting memos to myself!

& in other news... wow. It was an interview... for a real person job. I have a lot to think about and to ponder and probably to ask advice over, but not right now... my head is just swimming.

Melissa said...

ANother one? You got another one. You are so cool. You'll be fine. Just breath. Drink heavily. And then write.

Colleen said...

I think the condom connection is pretty funny and might get the attention of readers if it was put in the first line.

Ann said...

Way to go....work it girl, they won't know.

Bonnie B said...

Congrats! I hope the interview goes well.

hautemama said...

Rock on!

Mega Mom said...

Ack! Are you ready to tell yet? I'm dying here!

Nikki said...

Kristin - you're killin me. I'm excited and I didn't get the job offer!

SHARE!

Kristen said...

I have a messy, moody and stressed out with no time to do what I want kind of lifestyle lol. The kind where I always forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. LOL. You're a mom too so I'm sure yours must be something like that? Please tell me I'm not alone! LOL.

Stephanie A. said...

wow, coolness. I always knew you were that glam! can't wait for more details!

lildb said...

Oh, how awesome! talk about someone deserving something. I'm so stoked for you, sister.

:)

p.s. yeah. I would totally be deleting more than a few posts on my blog if I had to identify myself as having written them. it makes me sad to confess to that, but there it be. sigh.

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

Congratulations!

abbynormal said...

Ooh, sounds fun, actually!

Not too sure about your future audience with your lack of details at the moment. Probably best not to use "condom" and "fake it" together, though.

Lisa said...

Glamorous lifestyles? And here, I thought I knew you! HA!!

Congrats, it sounds better than the other one. I want more info!! Because, obviously, I want to use more exclamation points!!

sniper said...

yes it is a small world , and the internet can be something amazing, and wonderful and also ugly.
when it rains it pours-job offers reminds me of someone

Jenn said...
