| Britton Laine Carducci is a recent graduate of Rutgers University. Approximately one month after graduation, she packed up her car, put her dog on a plane and moved from a small town in New Jersey to Los Angeles, where she is now having a bitch of a time finding a job. Recently, after botching an interview for a waitressing job, she put her gold-embossed degree into her mouth and began chewing it into a fine cud, starting with the frosted-flowery, highly caloric and utterly useless words: high honors. She is hoping to find a job soon to finance graduate school, because she's always has a bitch of a time learning her lesson.
