Well boys and girls, the time has come. It seems like I’ll be trading in my flip-flops for Franco Sarto pumps.
Exactly five months after my first blog entry, Four o’clock sounds, I was officially engaged to rejoin the workforce.
I am extremely pleased. So is my bank account.
I will not be working in marketing or public relations, but I will be using all of those skills. I will not pitch media. I will not proof ads. I will be doing what I do best, which is charming the pants off clients. That’s actually my new title. Pants Charmer. I prefer Manager of Pants Charming, but then the business card will look awkward and, really, it sounds awkward too. Like I’m saying Prince Charming or something.
Unfortunately, this job does come with one bitter pill and that is the censorship of this blog. Although my employer has not asked me to, I feel like I owe it to them and to our clients not to blabber about the sausage making.
But, that’s not going to stop me from blogging about other topics. I will continue to use this forum to share my stories with you about my neighbors, my friends and the readjustment of a bohemian writer back into a cubicle.
I thank you for your continued support and readership, your comments and friendship – unless you’re a spammer. If you’re a spammer I could give a crap about you.
For those of you still out on the hunt, I wish you luck and I hope that you find exactly what you’re looking for. For those interviewing candidates, remember to treat people with kindness, and put yourself in their shoes – as you may end up wearing them.
Mari, Manager of Charm

Congrats on the new job. I completely understand about the “sausage making” which is why I refrain from any professional overtures in my blogging experiment. That’s not to say I won’t post humorous items from my work life but…they’ll be ancient history by the time they make into cyberspace. Good luck with the new gig. Enjoy your final days of unemployed freedom!
Thank you so much! I’m totally going to enjoy my two weeks. 🙂
