Default do you want to do this???

I have just received this email from the UK - any of you fancy taking part?? I am too old!!

I'm a journalist based in England (although this time last week I was sunning myself at the Royal Mirage in Dubai!) and I've been commissioned by the Daily Mail - for whom I do a lot of work - to find four British ex-pat women living in Dubai for a feature. The angle is a real insight into what it's like to live in Dubai with all the glitz, glamour, oppulence, oppressive summer heat, nightmare traffic, Arab traditions etc. The ideal candidates will be attractive, photogenic ladies in their late 20s to early 40s, some who've chosen to move to Dubai for a better life, others who've moved their with their own careers or because of their husbands' jobs etc. I'd need telephone interviews with each (probably 30 mins per person) and also to arrange for each lady to be photographed in situ in Dubai. We would aim to send a hair and make-up lady along too for some pampering. I wondered if you might know of any willing ladies who fit the bill that you could put me in touch with? I need to turn
this around quite quickly so it would be great if you could come back to me in the next two days. Look forward to hearing from you.

Sounds like a job for me!

Paint on loads of slap, frosted lens on the camera.
Me ...Standing in front of the Burj Dubai in a pile of dust, wearing my high heels and carring Anthea Turners trade mark feather duster.
Photo taken as I dust the Burj Dubai.
Caption Housewife sweep up Dubai!
How lovely is that!
