Writing about web page http://www.jobpredictor.com
Just a little advice for my friends with this useful careers website:
Eleanor O'Donnell your ideal job is a Prostitute
See, you could even write your own book like this nice girl, critically acclaimed 'A STUNNER!'
Anna, your ideal job is a traffic warden
Well ud get to piss people off all day, think that would suit you down to the ground! Anyway, looks like fun!
Karl Nikklas, your ideal job is a Drag Queen
He he, I do believe i have some pics on here of you dressed as a girl, uve got the diva quality and the experience, no prob getting gigs, can I be your makeup artist??
Benjamin pearson, your ideal job is an office bike
Have NO idea what this is but sounds like it would suit you down to the ground!
Beatrix Martinez Gatell, you ideal job is a concrete mixer
Forget about film, feminism and faires, this IS GUARANTEED to be your ideal job, at least you get to meet lots of half naked boyz – but remember to always make sure they put a hat on their hard head!!! (deliberate play on words!)
Rahcel Hull, your ideal job is the rear end of a panto cow
Oops a DAISY!! Sorry Rach, maybe its destiny but at least you have another year to think about careers, maybe jobpredictor.com will have changed its mind by then – heres hoping!!
Well, my ideal job is a chef, so with a lack of better advice from uni careers people, as we speak I am filling out applications for Mc Donalds, Burger King, Whimpy and KFC, but it appears im over qualified, they are only looking for microwave operators – well f@*%k them then!

OOOH Lordie, what a quest!
The story began this evening at 8.15 pm, our obsession for the OC took over our senses! Rachel and me decided that we MUST watch some, we had cake and wine, but no OC. Now, we've gone a couple of days without watching any because we had episodes up to 219 and had watched them all.
After phoning the blockbusters in Leamington and Kenilworth and all to no avail, we decided to turn up at Red Fern to rinse Tammy and Zoe's DC++. After ringing the bell continuously it seemed that they had better things to do than obsess over he OC. And so, I decided to call Ambrose, from the first year who I have only spoken to a few times. However, we thought we were in luck, he was in, so we bumbled over to Rootes to download it, armed with blank CD's. But, damn and blast it, we couldn't work it, even after raiding various Rootes kitchens and enlisting a guy who seemed to be clued up, DC wasn't working (gone are the olden days when we could always count on good ol' Dc!)
Determined not to give up there, we texted Andy to get Jess' number (who I had on good authority, had the missing episodes!) Her housemate answered as she was at the shop–awkward conversation, I sounded like a complete OC junkie, the conversation was along these lines, after intros I said 'I know for a fact that you have the oc episodes that we're dependent on, Jess said I could copy them sometime but what she doesn't know is that I'm on m way to yours now–hope thats ok!' He was very friendly and helpful so we dashed across town and when we arrived he had already started copying them for us–such a nice guy!! I think he understood our pain, empathy was our friend tonight!!
Ran out of petrol on the way home but luckily Rach had her wallet and a petrol station was at hand. So here we are, two hours and many miles later, with our wine, cake and episode 220–peace at last…so thats us set up for the night and tomorrow morning, very happy compared to how desperate we were earlier, this is a little taste of just how bad that felt:
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the OC lovers come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message our OC dreams are Dead,
Put crépe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
OC was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song,
I thought that the sunshine would last forever: 'I was wrong'
The stars are not wanted now, put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
But no, complete happiness has been restored to our lives!!
Mmmmmwwwwaaaahhhh, we love you all!!

Hi, just to let you all know, I will soon be approaching the ripe old age of 22! Not so happy about this, it's all about being 21, or 18 even, NOT 22!! Got lots to look forward to, being pushed around in a wheelchair, got some saga holidays in the bag, free bus tokens and my pension (which is prob worth more than my student loan!!)
However, I am looking to relive my youth, everyone is invited to my 21st (shhh, i won't tell if you don't!) birthday. Its not a party, just happens to be on the 25th of Oct, which is a Tuesday so going to sugar.
Here is my wish list for presents, I have included a range of gifts from many price ranges, so however much u wanna spend is up to you
1. Incontinence pads – This week's top seller so I hear
2. A Classic plastic rain hat in a groovy pink, complete with neck tie for those extra windy days
3. A stenna stair lift- this particular model is available on ebay
4. To be on the safe side, a waterproof chair cover for those lil accidents of nature, this one is quilted and fitted for extra luxury and machine washable, what more could a girl ask for!
5. A walking stick, gotta have a minging animal head on the top, apparently thats the latest fashion
6. And if you really want to splash out, the 'Shoprider Sovereign' from www.mobilitybuddy.co.uk!!
Thats all folks, hope to see you all at Sugar to help me take my mind off the fact that I am soon to be a wrinkled old prune!!

Had to post a follow up becasuse I feel this is going to be a bit of an ongoing saga!
So, you've seen the house problems. The guys here last yr had money taken from their deposit but never told what for. Upon asking what the money was taken for Claire sent them pictures of the dirt that needed to be cleaned. However, of the pictures sent by her, half of them arent even of our house!!! Nice job Claire, check out Eleanor's blog (first on my faves list) to see the pics and if anyone recognises thier house and their dirt, let us know bacause apparently they have been charged for it!! Also, if the money was used to comprehensively clean the house then why did I spend my first day here playing cinders and cleaning the whole place and why did I have to pick up fag butts, needles and general skank off my floor when I got here??
What is that woman smoking?!
