Today’s Quote: Model Says Paralegal Career Fattening

Or, It Pays a Whole Lot Better to Pick Up Men

“After majoring in theater in college, Eve worked as a paralegal, but the position drained her creativity and added the pounds.” ~ “All about Amazon Eve,” San Francisco Bay Guardian Online

So the 6’8″ model ditched the desk job, got buff and now picks up men at the rate of $400 per hour.

Get your mind out of the gutter. She literally picks them up – and wrestles, boxes and otherwise physically dominates short executive-types who have a thing for getting their butts kicked by an Amazon woman.
Hmmm, something to think about while you’re sitting at your desk, steaming mad because an attorney just asked you (again) at 4:55 p.m. to stay late and copy several hundred pages of exhibits he forgot he needs for a hearing tomorrow morning.

  1. Very funny! I can attest that a paralegal career can add pounds (or is that just age??), however I'm not sure it drains creativity – after all, we have to be pretty creative to figure out how to efficiently handle all of those surprise projects we get handed at 4:55 pm!

    Thanks for the chuckle, Lynne!

  2. Exactly, Daphne, I find that we have to be EXTRA creative in order to do some of the tasks we get assigned, but I have to agree that I also eat EXTRA cookies at my desk when things get really stressful 🙂

  3. Wow, 6'8"? No wonder she can pick them up and toss them around. I would like to blame genetics for packing on the pounds, but unfortunately I have only myself to blame. It is easy to sit and work through lunch and don't get me started on the stress eating, oh my! I can gain pounds just smelling the cookies, lol. Thanks for the reminder to get up and move Lynne 🙂

  4. Lori, you're probably smelling the cookies I try to keep hidden from my co-workers in my desk drawer 😉 And it takes a lot of creativity to hide food in our office!
