I have a very exciting interview and am horrified at the prospect of not being offered the job on the spot.
Dear God.

Anita Pallenberg, b. 1944, Italy

Actress, model and fashion designer.

Pallenberg is known for her romantic involvement with Rolling Stones band members Brian Jones, whom she met in 1965 in Munich, where she was working on a modelling assignment, and Keith Richards, for whom she left Jones in 1967 while on holiday in Morocco. She remained in a relationship with Richards until 1980 although they never married. There were rumours that she also had a brief affair with Mick Jagger during the filming of Performance, although Pallenberg denied the affair in March 2007 when Performance was released on DVD.

Pallenberg and Richards were together from 1967 - 1979.  They had three children: son Marlon (born 10 August 1969), Angela (née Dandelion; born 17 April 1972) and a second son, Tara (26 March 1976- 6 June 1976), who died in his cot 10 weeks after his birth.


The Blues

I'm feeling more than a little down today.
It seems that trying to break into the fashion industry is really only for the wealthy, who can afford to live in London/commute whilst earning nothing for, perhaps, a year before finding paid employment.

Otherwise people have somehow managed on waitressing by night.

This does not fill me with confidence.

I just don't seem to have the energy to hold down two jobs simultaneously.
So I've been applying to whatever permanent positions I can find that are at least half-relevant to my chosen career path.  I thought maybe I could find a way in sideways rather than head on.

But I had an interview today for a job so dire, so boring and business-like that I think I won't even manage that.

Maybe I sound spoilt. But I think I'm a good candidate.  And there's certainly some jobs out there that I've applied to that I feel I deserve a response from.

I'm feeling quite desperate and am worried there's only one antidote for that.

Off to dinner at a friend's tonight and we are having spicy sausage pasta with pancetta.  I'm sure that might do the trick.
