I’m too sexy for my job…

Who knew?  MSN posted an article up called “10 Sexy Careers You Never Thought Of“.  You can read the whole article if you want, but really, this is the most important piece:

Depending on where you work and whom you work with, the words “sexy” and “job” shouldn’t share a sentence. Even if you check all romantic notions at the door when you punch your time card, not everyone does.Plenty of people are just as attractive as — or more attractive than — the profession they choose. Not just the obvious picks, such as athletes, doctors or models, but also some whose attractive quotients rise when they’re on the clock.Here are 10 careers that have more sex appeal than you probably realize:

1. Administrative assistants
When you visit almost any workplace, a smiling administrative assistant greets you. Very often you don’t know if you’re in the right place, whom you need to speak with or even what you need to do. Administrative assistants know the answers and, because they’re your first points of contact, they have to be well-groomed and kind to visitors. Knowledge, good looks, a nice personality and helpfulness? Yes, please. And since they frequently work closely with high-level executives who value their opinions, they often possess a hidden but large cache of power. Administrative assistants pretty much have the whole package.

It’s all true, what can I say?  I have hidden power?  You bet your sweet bippy (sorry Larry, I know you’re not in the business of betting your bippy…)!  Does this make me a gnostic?  You know, the whole “secret knowledge” thing?
I mean…who WOULDN”T want to be greeted by this when they walk into an office:
I’m just sayin’…hot.
Thanks to Abbey for directing me to this article…she’s a hot Admin. Assist, too!

To tag or not to tag…

That is the question. My good friend Susie just tagged me. I’ll give this a shot, but I’m really bad at these things and usually end up just deleting it all before I post it. So, if you’re reading this, you all should feel very lucky I decided to go through with it!

I’m supposed to tell you readers 6 random facts/interesting/crative things about myself.

1. I basically have 3 1/4 degrees. In college (Luther College, Decorah, IA) I received BA’s in History and Religion. I was working on a minor in Africana Studies, but didn’t quite make it. I guess trying to do an entire minor degree your senior year doesn’t quite work! I also have an MA in Old Testament from Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN.

2. I’ve started sewing. I do have a sewing machine that was graciously loaned to me by one of my pastors. It was her mothers machine and it’s been in their basement for years as she has her own. I’ve completed 2 projects: a bucket hat and a tank top. I’ve started a blog about my sewing adventures. If you’re interested, head on over to read about my bucket hat project!

3. My husband and I are attempting to be more green/organic. To that end we have now joined a total of 3 co-ops. One for meat, one for produce and one for dairy. We get our first batch of Raw milk in a week…yippie! We’re also learning to can (we’ve made one batch of tomato sauce). One of the reasons I took up sewing was to help further our goal of being able to provide most of our own goods. I also knit upon occasion. One day we hope to have a garden so we can grow most of our own produce as well. I’d like to start baking bread on a regular basis as well, so we can cut that cost down significantly.

4. I grew up in a small town in Minnesota called Spring Valley. Growing up, I always said I would stay in Minnesota and most likely stay in Spring Valley (Population 2,600). Of course, by the time I reached High School, I couldn’t wait to get out! I now live in Chicago, IL (Population 2,842,518). I LOVE Chicago!

5. I am an Aunt to 2 beautiful nieces and 1 adorable nephew. Nicole is 15, Hannah is 2 and Logan is 6. Logan is the newest addition, as his mother just married my brother in law. He’s a lot of fun and calls me Aunt Mae! I am also the god-mother of 1 amazing little girl. Jannah is her name, and she is the daughter of one of my best friends, Susie, who tagged me for this post.

6. YAY! I’m at 6!! Only one more thing to try and think about…crap…what should I tell you?? I LOVE TO READ!! I just ordered 4 new books today, and they probably won’t last me a month. When I get a new book, everything else takes a backseat and I read every spare moment I have. I love fantasy books the most. The more wizards, dragons, fairies, vampires the better! I also enjoy some SciFi…all fiction though. Not a fan of most non-fiction.

Whew! I made it…I will actually post this one! So now to tag others: Tripp. Obsquatch, Bethany, Christi, Sarah: Queen of Ur, Sister Robbin, David.
