Ah, how you introduce the professional note to the conversation! No-one ever let *me* sell books. Boo I say!

My most fun job was doing bus surveys (I had to leap on and off buses and chat to old people, so good).

But my coolest job was as a Getty photograper's model. I had to dress like an opera singer and mime on a fake roof.

Hehe. I don't know! I had a print out, but not sure where it is. Might email him and ask for a copy.
