Spelling errers

Posted on

For a PR, spotting a spelling mistake after pressing send is a horrible, briefly heart stopping experience. I assume. Having the mind of Archimedes means I’d never do anything so stupid myself. But I feel for others out there with their tiny pea brains as they try to make their way in the world of […]

Sindy sparks Madeleine moment at Rhizome

Posted on

She may be 50 but she doesn’t look a day over 15. Her light is still burning bright, turning heads and winning hearts. Joan Rivers, she keeps getting younger. Not really. I mean Sindy.

#RoyalBaby madness!

Posted on

Why bother putting up a boring Joe Bloggs job ad up when you can act out your own zombie video to draw in the […]

If you’re female and you want a job, wear pantyhose

Posted on

Ah, let’s hear it for casual, everyday sexism – because it does make an exceedingly good blog. The sort of sexism that tells women that wearing some make-up is better than wearing no slap at all, and that ‘pantyhose’ will “seriously impress” employers (even if your CV doesn’t). And, that if you’re a recruiter, it’s acceptable to tell grown women how to […]
