My future career?

I have about a zillion things I need to do so what am I doing? I am sitting here contemplating my navel....soooo.....I've decided to do something useful and compile a list of things I could do for my future career...

So far I have

A Lipstick Namer
Can you imagine how cool that would be!! I think I would be fantastic.........you could have things like Purink (which is a combination of purple and pink obviously) or Zombie Blue or Road Kill Red!! (See, told you I'd be great!!)

I could be a Fashion Detective!! (or maybe constable??)

I could arrest people for having incredibly stupid hair (there seems to be a lot of that about at the moment - I saw a girl today that was obviously trying out two different styles on either side of her head), I could insist that teenage boys go wild and actually buy trousers that fit and I could ban shell suits for life!! (I think the world would be a better place without shell suits!!)

A
Hairdresser Torturer
Not all hairdressers just the ones that wash your hair. They always seems to manage to spray the water down both your front and back before then going on to try and give you a frontal lobotomy whilst pretending to give you a scalp massage!! (and I'm not even going to get into the scalding hot vs freezing cold water thing)

A Singer
I'll follow people, whom I find mildly irritating, around all day singing annoying little ditties that they can't then get out of their head for weeks and weeks (Like Wigfield's Saturday Night or The Chicken song)

or maybe I could just be a Fairy Princess......what do you think?

(Can you tell it's been a LONG day!!!)

  4. Debs - Me too! You really could have lots of fun naming lipsticks :-)

    French Fancy - Hehehehe, I thought so too! As I said on FB...I would totally buy a lipstick that was called Road Kill Red :-D

    Mel - OMG...what have you done to me?? I followed the link...all I can think about is llama's (and a duck)

    I think I might have to go and lie down!

    *snigger* I did like the line 'Alarm a llama'

  9. lol, Carol! I always wanted to be the one who came up with obscure and crazy names they give to paint chips...but that's just because we're forever renovating and paint chips are my close buddies now :)

    Are you sure you aren't already following me around and singing annoying songs because I had a Lady GaGa tune stuck firmly in my head today! :)

  10. Talon - Ok, I'm gonna half to ask...what on earth is a paint chip? (I have never decorated in my life..well, I've helped friends paint..but have never heard the term 'paint chip')

    I have definitely not been following you around...I don't find you irritating at all so it must have been someone else *winks*

  11. I'd quite like to be a fashion detective! Great options.

  12. Talli - You could be my partner in 'fashion' crime :-)

  13. Carol, I call them paint chips, but what I guess they are actually called is paint colour sample cards -- and that's a mouthful, isn't it? They have obscure names for the colors like "Hollow Hills" and "Fresh Breeze" giving absolutely no clue to what color they are.

    Okay, you're off the hook for the "rah rah ah ah ah" Gaga tune that keeps running through my head. I'm sure it will be replaced by "fa la la la la" as soon as the feisty holiday singing fairy gets close to me :)

  14. OMG I think you would be great at any of those jobs BUT imagine how awesome we would be if we worked at them as a team? Huh? Go us!

  15. I'd like to be a fairy princess or to have my own fairy princess. In college my friend and I played fashion police. We never went up to anyone, but we had a good time offering suggestion to each other about what would help them. Sadly, I'm sure someone could do that for me. LOL

  16. Talon - Ahhhh, suddenly it has all become clear...yes, paint chips is a much better term for them! I hate those paint names...there was a rediculous one I came across a few years ago that has stuck with me...Vanilla mist...I mean what the hell? It turned out that Vanilla mist is white mixed with lilac!

    Arg, I read your 'rah rah ah ah ah' and it has now stuck in my head! I'm going to have to go and listen to something else now or I'll be singing it for the rest of the night!!

    DJ - We would be unstoppable!! Right, I demand that you quit your job straight away and that we form our own company...now...what shall we call it?

    Sharon - Yep, fairy princess would be good...but I think perhaps witch would be better...then I could have ruby shoes :-D.

    LOL...my mate and I still do that! (I'm sure no-one would do that to you!)

  17. Hi Carol, thanks you so much for leaving such an encouraging comment and for being my ist follower!!! I popped over to your blogs and checked out your drawings: they`re great, really different. I love the narrative aspect of them and especially like the one with the butterfly and the person sitting in a hand, (sorry, I can`t remember what it`s called now!) Anyway, good luck on your return trip home and take it easy - it`s very difficult to readjust after being away in a different culture. I`m still adjusting, but you just take every day as it comes...

  18. Judith - Your very welcome :-). As I said, I saw your comment on Ian's blog and thought 'ah ha...a kindred spirit'.

    Awww, thank you so much for your incredibly kind comments about my art you have made my day :-)

    We've been back now for nearly three years (Gosh, has it been so long) but your right, it did take some adjusting to!
