Happy Post-Pancake Wednesday!

Another Fat Tuesday come and gone. Now we have to face the letdown of Really Fat Wednesday, Boy You're Really Packing Them On Thursday and Medically Obese Friday. After that, there's the long weekend of I've GOT To Get In Shape Saturday and Eat Less and Exercise Sunday, with a brief respite on Say You Look Great! Monday, before it all starts again on Oh God I'm So Fucking Fat Tuesday next week.

I could keep this up all day.

GREAT MOMENTS IN FREELANCE REJECTION

1. Being told by a heavy metal magazine that my pitch was about "the wrong kind of metal"

2. Being told that my article about people who are paid to make up stories about men in longjohns who fly around and fight crime is "too cerebral"

3. Being told that the publication to whom I submitted a proposal was "trying to get away from customer service"

SPECIAL GREAT MOMENTS IN JOB INTERVIEWS BONUS:

1. Being told in a follow-up call "if we were a different kind of company, you'd have the job"

PLUS BONUS ADDED GREAT MOMENT IN SAME JOB INTERVIEW:

2. Being told by the interviewer that "I had to advise the staff to pass, but it's not really up to me"
