Situation Wanted: When Bulfinch and Craigslist Collide

Remember Living Read Girl, the blog that ran the Almost Moon jingle contest a while back? Lady T is at it again; this time, she’s using the American publication of Marie Phillips‘s comic fantasy novel, Gods Behaving Badly, to invite her readers to submit imaginary job-seeking ads for the Greek mythological pantheon. Among her suggestions: Have Hermes look for a delivery job, send Apollo out to the tanning salons, and make Aphrodite look for matchmaking work. I’m recusing myself, but clearly there’s plenty of opportunities: Dionysus as a sommelier, Demeter as a horticulturist, and so on…there’s probably even a joke about Hercules and the Augean stables to be made, depending on how loosely Lady T wants to define the whole “gods and goddesses” aspect of the contest.

As before, Lady T’s contest has no official connection with the book’s publisher, but, really, if the numbers are there, it’s only going to be a matter of time.
