Barri (yes, that's her) was recently laid off from corporate America - like many others here in New York, she is now looking for work:

"I was laid off from corporate America in Jan 2009. I'm kinda glad. I'm also kinda scared. Things I will do for money include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Go through your facebook friend list to determine who it's time to unfriend.
  2. Write your online dating profile, white lies and all.
  3. Organize your Obama campaign memorabilia.
  4. Set up your DVR recordings in preparation for Lost, 24, Battlestar Galactica, American Idol and Howie Do It.
  5. Sell your stuff on ebay. What were you thinking buying that diamond pave dragon cuff anyway?
  6. Duck tape an umbrella to your bike when you have to get to a hot date in the rain.
  7. Change your Brita filter. Who wants to wait around until the water is clear of carbon? I do.
  8. Go to first base. Second base negotiable for the right hourly rate.
  9. Febreze your suits after your interviews. Dry cleaning is overrated.
  10. Delete all the porn off your work computer's hard drive."

While # 6 might be of particular interest to you, dear readers...the thing is - she's also a brilliant comic writer - and YOU should be paying her for how much you're going to enjoy reading her new blog. Check it out.
