because it pays my bills
I have been informed that the same satellite radio station that employs Howard Stern and Martha Stewart has hired me as their copyeditor. Their *only* copyeditor. They are giving me a complimentary satellite radio to listen to all day long.
I wonder if some announcement on Mediabistro will appear? And I guess the copyediting class (remember the gunshots boom-boom-boom and strip club thump-thump-thump) paid off.
Also, one of the above-mentioned celebrities has also interviewed me for a copyediting position. I was really hoping that Conde Nast (read: Vogue!!! Vanity Fair!!!) would snag me first. Sorry, Ms. Wintour. I will be a little delayed. And then I will betray you by taking a job with Carine Roitfeld in Paris. Seriously, that's the plan.
A will be busy this summer, what with rowing, math, possibly fencing, and weekends in Boston, but I feel the ache of taking a day job. Meh.
