    1. You're welcome :) I love your blog.

      Lol! Well, I saw an ad in a paper and applied as I've read cards and practised clairvoyance since I was 12....but to be perfectly honest, the line I worked for made it very clear that actually being psychic or reading cards was not a requirement to work for them! It was a big con! I lasted about a week :D
