                           ord came late Saturday that the Kat has been officially welcomed as the newest employee at Advantage Sales & Marketing.

The Kat was officially notified by email on Saturday that she had passed her drug test and the paperwork was in for her "I-9", the latter a federal form verifying that the applicant is a U.S. citizen. The Company she will be working for is a  marketing agency in North America committed to building brand value for their clients and customers. One of the ways they accomplish this is to hand out free samples in stores selling the brand. This is where Kat comes in, she will be preparing the samples and distributing them among shoppers as they stroll by.

Kat expects to be busy at her new job during the holidays with business tapering off after the first of the year. She is looking forward to her new experience and comments on facebook by Judy Treml about how she has to get this out of her system so "The Fat Club" can continue were not welcomed by her. She expects to continue meetings of the FC on days she will not have to conduct in store marketing.

That's all the news that is news, see ya.
