Will work for shoes

So this time next week will be my second last day at work. It's been a good 15 months at this job. I've learned some really interesting things about English people (they make awful tea) and their shopping habits (they need some serious help), but it's time to move on. To what I have no idea. So till I find out, I plan to pursue my career as a writer. That sounds very grand, but what it really means is that I'll be in sweats watching Trisha and Oprah and eating oats.

So if anyone needs a writer let me know.Till then cheques can be sent to Shoefiend, P.o Box 222, London. Shoes will be accepted in lieu of money and food. Size 5 please.

Whoa! you're brave to quit a job before you have another one lined up.

All the best! Hope you don't struggle for too long.

P.S. If you find a job that involves lying on a tropical beach and editing manuscripts (my dream job) please share some pointers.

I presume you mean the desi version of size 5?;) I am sure you'll become a famous writer!Skip Oprah though! I sat and watched her for about 3 months(when I was waiting for someone to hire me)and she seriously screwed up my brains! All the best

The ramblings of a shoe fiend said...

GGop - really, 5 is small? thanks! i hope i getpublished soon too

Swathi - Books too of course. But there's this wonderful time of the day - mid morning- that must be reserved for trashy talk shows. It's for research. Promise.

Mamba - Yes size 5 UK. Does that mean I have giant feet now?

Prerona - thanks! and I still want to know what you didn't like about my last story :)

The ramblings of a shoe fiend said...

Punkster - Ok, now I have to know are you fainting because my feet are big or small. Tell me and then I'll call the ambulance :)

D&C - thanks so much.

Akka - I haven't seen Oprah Aunty in a year now so I'm looking forward to uplifting messages :)
Is UK size 5 same as Indian size 5? I think so

Oh and Swathi - Trisha is a cross between Oprah and Jerry Springer.

Arun Verma said...

the wannabe indian punkster said...

Shoefi, your feet are insanely small.

Im not kidding.

:(

The ramblings of a shoe fiend said...

arun - thanks! look forward to hearing from you

kranthi - :) thanks

The ramblings of a shoe fiend said...

Jane - thank you

girl in pink - no need for a plan! heck I don't have one :)

Tilo - thanks! where have you disappeared to? i tried mailing you got a delivery failed message? where are you :(

Punkster - 10? Now if you were a guy... ok wait is 10 a big guy shoe size too? this is awful for a shoefiend I don't know much do I?

Anonymous said...

me thinks men prefer to measure something else and boast, not shoe-size

Szerelem said...

smaller??....i wish!!
i beat Punkster as well...US size 11.
Tis terribly tragic. I need to get most of my shoes, especially the high heels, made.
Oh, and 10 is a prety big shoe size, even for men.

kaaju katli said...

Good luck, Shoef!

Minal said...

madam, I think you might rock in this choice:-) Good luck writing...
Hey the shoe sizes match, if you get duplicate pairs mind dispatching some here;-)
Best of luck:-)

The ramblings of a shoe fiend said...

anon - aren't those two supposed to be directly proportional though? :)

Szerlem - Bespoke shoes? Sigh. Sounds lovely

Kaaju - thanks!

Minal - thank you so much! one load of shoes coming right at ya!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
