Here’s an e-mail I received last night (re: my CafePress store). Apparently the word ‘glee’ is solely owned by Twentieth Century Fox:

Job Scam #2: Secret Shopper
December 16, 2010, 6:00 am
Filed under: Life

Ready to hear about job scam #2? Again, the company in question contacted me via a resume I posted on a job-search site. To make this one appear more legit, it was actually for a job I applied for (secret shopper). I received an e-mail from (before it was over with) like 8 different people, all working the same scam. In reality it was most-likely one person using multiple names. Whatever the case, it became annoying after a while.

So, I skim over the e-mail and it’s allegedly for a secret shopper position. My first “assignment” is to go to Western Union and send money to some woman in Haiti. …um, yeah. I read on, and it goes into detail about not letting them know you are a secret shopper, what to pay attention to (the number of people working there, store condition, interaction with customers, how long it takes to conduct my transaction, etc.).

Oh! I can’t believe I almost forgot to mention this: There has been one positive in the last 3 months: My online store (SeulBoy) has been doing gangbusters! I have to assume it’s because of it being Christmastime. In November alone, I had 1-3 orders per day! Of course since my customers are accessing my merchandise via the CafePress main page instead of through my actual store web page, I only get 10%, whereas if you order through my actual store, I get up to 90%.

Job Scam #1: Craigslist Copywriter

Filed under: Life

Okay, here is one of two job scams I received, but luckily intercepted before things got outta hand:

First off, I got the ball rolling by uploading my resume on various legitimate job-hunting sites (Indeed, CareerBuilder, etc.)…and then there’s JobNab. And that’s where the scam artists saw my resume and consequently contacted me via e-mail. Continue reading

The First Cut Isn’t Necessarily the Deepest

I‘ve been watching A LOT of movies. Well, movies AND seasons of TV shows. I never realized how much I wanted to punch Bosley (Charlie’s Angels) in the fuckin’ face! Goddamn those goofy-ass faces he is ALWAYS making with those fuckin’ ducklips and walleyes. On the other hand, I love Kate Jackson. She was the coolest one, as far as I’m concerned. You can have Jaclyn Smith and her makeup trolley.

I finally got around to watching In the Cut. You know, that movie that came (no pun intended..and trust me, if you’ve seen the movie, you know what I mean…geesh!) and went. The one that was such the controversy because it was Meg Ryan’s first nude scene (yawn). I seriously OD’ed on the movie when it came out (and subsequently on DVD) because it was all people could talk about. Now that things have died down, I gained renewed interest because I love thrillers and have been watching a lot of them lately.

Well, I found it used for $3 at one of my favorite used book haunts, and was like “What the heck!.” It was the R-rated, not the ‘Uncut’ version, which I have to assume had even more sexual content, which I can’t fuckin’ imagine (no pun intended). Don’t get me wrong. I can deal with sexual content and it has nothing to do with it being “straight” sexual content. I guess I just find very few things genuinely erotic or taboo anymore.

Yes, Virginia, There is a Blog -or- Electronic: Disappointed

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written a blog post. My excuse is a combination of 3 things: Busy, Uninspired and “Seasonal Affective Disorder” (AKA ‘SAD’…LOL!). Sorry, that last one makes me laugh because I swear to god, just when I think there can’t be a friggin’ disorder for everything, I hear about this one and it makes me roll my eyes. Though it’s true I do get bouts of depression, I’d never be so pretentious as to tell someone (picture me in a lounging robe, wearing a fez and sporting a John Waters-style moostache, holding a martini nonchalantly while ‘chewing’ some phantom food) “MmYes, I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder.” I just call it “not feeling good” or “down in the dumps.” Geez!
