See me do my goldfish impression

Get this.

One of my co-workers, in all seriousness, suggested the perfect job for me: manager of a rockgroup.

Honestly, she said, you are the perfect candidate -- you know a lot of indie bands, you've got an outgoing personality, you're not afraid of taking risks, and you have the right hair. Excuse me? The right hair?

Yes, she said. Thick and shiny, and…hippie-like.

I'm completely flabbergasted.

And you dress like one too ;)

Hehe. That's kinda cute :)

I'm sorry, did somebody forget to tell me this is Take The Piss Out Of Hedwig Day? ;-)

I dress like one? Hee -- but one skirt does not a hippie make, you know...

I'm trying to imagine that... Ugh nearly... Almost there... Nope.

Feb. 10th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
Yep. This is like far out, man. Like totally.

Peace, sister! Chill out. Get back in the goove.

Hmmm...that would certainly be a different career path. Lots of travel involved...NYC and Starbucks...

Too bad I've got no business sense, no contacts in the music industry, and an annoying tendency to fall asleep around 11:30 pm...but other than that, yeah, I'm up for it! ;-)

Period hippie hair, for reference purposes. (see icon)

OK, once upon a long ago, I had the long hair and parted it in the middle...but I wouldn't have called it 'hippie hair', exactly. (BTW, we used to refer to the long hair hippies wore as 'Jesus-hair' in my day...).

But the idea that any kind of hair should immediately qualify you for any particular job -- nope, I'm still completely mystified by that! ;-)

Hippie like? This friend couldn't possibly have actually been around in the 60s and seen the real thing.

I mean - yours is clean!

She's French. Might that help to explain it, do you think?

Huh. Just...that's interesting. What people will come up with...
Feb. 10th, 2005 08:42 pm (UTC)
Indeed. But then, there's nowt as queer as folk, is there?

Ain't that the truth.
