I got the job!

I'm now officially working freelance in London. How Yuppie am I?

I'd say 13.

Well done, best learn to fly or beam yourself around though, I wouldn't trust the public transportation system atm for obvious reasons.

no no no, you have a base 30 for coming from the south so moving to london + working there would add a plus 20 taking into consideration the fact that you've talked to me before would lower the score yet then you have to add the modifier from the f.a.g. points you gained from moving nearer London town then that equals a grand total of 87 yuppie points.

I'm sure you can build on them points tho, can't think of things to help off the top of my head but I'll try.. you could:
Drink Champagne.
Have a brazilian boyfriend.
Speak like a twat.

I'll try to think of more things for you to up yourself on the London ladder to glory.

Well done on getting the job mate (whatever your gonna do) I hope it works out for you man.

The word 'freelance' also adds +20 to you Keyboard of Justice, adding +3hp, +4d and +13 Yuppie bonus, taking you to a wopping 107.

However, your secret anti-governmental stance could compromise that at a later date, when you have your gold stolen by Bugbears or Cockneys.

Good luck brother.

You guys are right... I was using the old Etonian scale of Yuppiness.
Having translated it into the more modern "New Media" Yuppie scales it works out roughly 110.

Thankfully I am taking talking-like-a-twat lessons and am developing quite the palate for babysham.
And I'll be trawling Clapham Common late at night to bump up my score even higher.

Cheer up Sam... download Plan of Attack and fight alongside the Oxfez online.... it's hours wasted.

My username is: At Least I Don't Wear Clothes

My job is great... I'm in jizzing distance to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament (therefore perfectly placed for a huge bombing), there are chicks in my office - CLEVER chicks too, and there is a Pret a Manger right next door, so it's crayfish, roquette and avacado sandwiches every day.....

Oh dear, if I thought you actually took yourself seriously at all then I would fear you were in danger of diasppearing up your own rectum. grin

Nah I'm okay, have a job interview myself tomorrow - managers job in town - bloody hell, would be good if I got it although ALOT of blagging needed as I've never really managed anything but myself in the past, and then reasonably poorly by most people's standards. But will let you guys know how I am going.

Oh and Joe, so we hear the girls the lunch etc - how is the actual work? smiley

The work's okay. Not the best, but much better than PC World. Much more proper editing and for an ethical cause, so I can sleep at night... sometimes with wood.

Just to add the the yuppiness factor... two colleagues SHARED a platter of sushi, and knew EXACTLY how to eat it.... WITH CHOPSTICKS!

Now that's Yuppie.

Having said that, I had a quorn curry today... though that's not yuppie, that's being a cu*t.

Good luck with the job Sam, tell them you know Oxfez... they'll understand.

Apparently, I have to register myself as self-employed and do my own taxes etc.... does anyone know anything about doing that and can give me a few pointers?

Princessa, if I can blag manager, you can. Piece of piss - just do what you'd like a manager to do to you, which in my case is letting my staff nip out for a fag as and when and regular tea breaks.

Is it an officey thing, retail or something else?

Fez - I reccomend don't do your taxes. What's the worst that can happen?

What a week I've had! Walking home on Saturday morning and I got jumped by two guys - both significantly smaller than me I'm sad to say - who proceed to beat 5 out of a possible 7 colours of shit out of me before running away.

Bleeding furiously and feeling a tad dizzy I proceed to the police, who aren't really interested in another fight on a Saturday night (even though, to be fair, this was unprovoked) and they call me a cab, which takes me to hospital who declare (after a four hour wait) that I've fractured my jaw in two places.

Sunday was spent lying in a hospital bed, the fracture, which worsened after a shunt in the ambulance carrying my over, was not attended to through Sunday at all - at one point a nurse encouraged me to eat. I could feel all three parts of my lower mandible moving independantly. Excruciating, honestly.

So, having just got out of hospital today (Tuesday), I am one step closer to my childhood dream of being made of metal with two titanium rods holding my jaw together, four very prominent screws proceeding from my gums and, currently, a series of wires holding my lower jaw in place.

I can't speak, yawning is agony and I can't eat solids for the next six weeks. I can open my mouth wide enough to fit a tea spoon in but no further.

Plus side, I can't smoke.

Minus side, I don't like soup.

Dude... sorry to hear about the latest trauma to hit Mattyville....

Those little punks... the cops I mean. As for the assailants... they get the official Oxfez Thumbs DownTM, which means soon they will be floating, bloated and brown in a pool of excrement.

Tough break... your jaw I mean. As for the situation, my condolences to ya buddy. Hope you recover speedily. I assum from the fact you posted that the hostpital has Internet capability.

If you want, you could come back to England where our hospitals have moved on from leeches and ancient Wicca practices. We'll let you receive proper, 19th century treatment, I promise.
Tell them Oxfez sent you... they'll understand.


I actually hope the police pull their fu*king fingers out and do something. NO ONE TOUCHES MY MATTY!
