@ WORK*

.... Hellooo...hope everyone had a fabulous weekend... I had a lovely one- promise to post about it this week...but just not today- it's another Monday!(...grrr) and of course we can never postpone Monday?! Some of us are eagerly waiting for work to begin
....yeah right?! ~hee*
Monday mornings always seem to be here all too soon. Just when we are getting used to the weekend and Whoosh! — it's already flown by all too soon! But no matter how much we might moan or groan, there is no escaping darlings...
.
......I'd say- don't let Mondays get us down. Let's get our spirits up and moving again! ~Take a deep breath...Darlings and charge on, full steam ahead. And just in case you find it hard, here are some ways to chase the Monday blues away
...perhaps get a MORE interesting odd job???
.
errr...take a look at some :

Odour judge

condom tester

semen/sperm collector

Underwear designer

dog food tester

Artificial inseminator

...Hoping for a Productive & Sunny* week !!!

Sher said...

OMG! Armpit sniffing? LOL!

dapper kid said...

Hahaha. I actually watched a documentary were they had to collect sperm from a horse and then artifically inseminated a mare. It was a surprisingly quick and uncomplicated process! Yick and I would hate to be a dog food taster, but now I wonder whether that means ordinary dog food is actually edible for humans...

poet said...

Oh my, these photos are so weird! :) What are the sweat-sniffing ladies doing, testing deodorants? *ugh*

Greetings,
poet

Sal said...

Lady, those photos are a scream!

Poetikat said...

Looking forward to your post on your weekend.

Lorna said...

I think the job which allows for the most artistic and aesthetic creativity is that of the underwear designer.

Fifi Flowers said...

I'd rather RETIRE or be unemployed!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

I needed a Monday night laugh! I did a double take at the odor testers...whewee...not my kind of job!!

Char said...

definitely the underwear tester....especially for the Beckham shoot.

Teri said...

Can't stomach the thought of smelling pits or tasting dog food. So I would jump at the chance to be an underwear designer.

Keith said...

I hate Mondays. I'm off from work over the weekend. I hate my job. I'm thankful I've got a job since so many other people don't. Plus I know that there are others with jobs that are much worse than mine. You showed some perfect examples of that. lol

sallymandy said...

Good heavens! Where the heck did you find these!? I'm never going to complain about my job again. Ever.

The underwear designer job looks pretty great. But I bet the competition is pretty, ah, stiff.

I am afraid these odd job owners look like they are enjoying themselves way too much, esp. the body odour testers!

kendalee said...

Brilliant!! I won't be complaining quite so hard about my Monday's in future!

*Sandra* said...

Well I wouldn't want to be an axilla sniffer, that's for sure. It's the pits!
