I got a job, but if I told you, I'd have to kill you

I got a part-time job writing for a local magazine. But since I stupidly used revised blog posts as writing samples, I have to assume they might be reading here. Also, they made me sign a confidentiality agreement.

So let us never speak of it again.

Hm... This whole blog anonymity thing is trickier than it looks... Good luck in your new job though!

wewonthejackpot - of the confidentiality agreement, or the magazine?

StyleyGeek said...

Oh my god. I decide I'm too tired and depressed to come to trivia and THAT WEEK you win the jackpot? Was it hundreds?

Maybe it's me. Maybe I should never come. You always come last when I'm there.

StyleyGeek said...

Actually, maybe you should PAY ME not to come. Out of your undeserved winnings :)

Is it Women's Weakly? No Idea?

StyleyGeek said...

No, it's just a local rag. You're being far more impressed than you need to be :)

Congrats! I am also doing some freelance work under a confidentiality agreement and it's killing me - I want to shout from the rooftops that I'm achieving my dream of being a freelance science writer! This will have to suffice, can't really post about it at my place...

Badaunt said...

Congratulations!

But you'll still give us all your BEST writing, right? Even though we don't pay you?

For luuuurve?

Hey Styley, that's great!

(unless it's just a cover for some sinister covert thing!)

Congrats, StyleyGeek!!!!!

The magazine, miss.m, although I wouldn;t mind some more confidential personal documents to add to my Styley dossier, to go with the lock of hair and discarded pregnancy test...

And, it was kind of hundreds (if you count $140 as plural hundreds, even if fractions) and we have pooled it to spend on food and drinks next time, so you should come and enjoy the winnings.

And even though we won the jackpot, and the spot question, we actually came in second-last (but apparently we only rank so low because we never buy any answers, according to the MC dude...)

StyleyGeek said...

Hmmm... maybe we should use some of the proceeds to buy answers, then? If this week we buy every answer possible, that will give us an idea of how much of a difference it makes.

And I'll definitely be there to help spend the ill-gotten gains (does that make me superficial?)

StyleyGeek said...

Oh, and congratulations, Cae! That is awesome. I'm hoping this job I just got might open the doors to some more sciencey writing or similar later on.

And Badaunt, I promise I'll still give you guys my best unmagazinable writing :) (I.e. anything too short, profane, or sarcastic to go in a mag.)
