Do you know what you're applying for?

There's a job advert in my local paper today. It sounds really good -
challenging, dealing with people in difficult circumstances, gathering
information from a variety of sources, a good benefits package, and £13K a
year (not too bad for a basic office job in Norwich). The only catch is that
it's two late nights per week, and one Saturday in four.
In fact it sounds better than my job - working for a hated department in the
civil service (I'll give you a clue, until last week we were always scouring
our roof for men in batman costumes).
Until you realise it IS my job. Our department is so hated that we can't even
mention our name at the job advert stage for fear of scaring people off. And
if you've applied as a Jobseeker, you won't find out who you are applying for
until its too late to back out without losing your JSA!
So if you were tempted by the ad, ask for more information before you apply.
Who knows, I may even be wrong - but I doubt it. Caveat operae - Employee

Google Bomb!

I'm backing the campaign to get Transformation off the top spot for Google searches with the Anti-Transformation Google Bomb!

The idea is to "Google Bomb" the Wikipedia entry for transvestite with links labeled simply with the word "transvestite". Google should hopefully see all the links for that word pointing to Wikipedia and count it as a more authoritative source of information.

If you have a blog or a web site, and you support the campaign, please copy and paste the code in the box below into your blog. You'll be doing trannies of the UK and around the world a favour!

Click on the word to find out more about being a transvestite.

If you'd like to use this entire message in your own blog to help promote the Google-Bomb, you can download it at Becky's Web here.
