Interesting list of articles about people with nasty jobs. "Morgue Madness" is particulary disturbing.

Although translation is a wonderful job, I'm sure someone could send a horror story about working as a freelance translator.

Thanks, Timothy! Jun 14, 2005

for the link. In the meantime, I ordered another one of the odd job books.

I am sure that it will make for a good read.

Thanks,
Lucinda
