I’ve got a new job too

Posted: December 9th, 2002, by Marceline Smith

It’s markedly less glamorous than Adrian’s though since I am, woo, a christmas postal sorter. I’m doing mail for London so if you’re expecting anything from the Glasgow area and it’s late you can quite possibly blame me! Now, the more mail there is making its way through the Glasgow area, the longer they’ll be needing to keep me on. So if you all send me a christmas card you’ll be wishing me a merry christmas AND keeping me in a job. In fact, send me a mix tape as well so I’ve got something new to listen to on my rather long and boring walk to and from work. I appear to be walking along the route of the Dodgy Pub Crawl – there’s about 12 of them, none of which I would set foot in on fear of stabbing. Email the diskant Robot for the diskant postal address. Also, me working 6 days a week for the next while means diskant updating/mail replying may go somewhat out the window. My advance apologies for being a lazy slacker. I need the money though. Blub etc.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
