SPELLS FOR SECRETARIES & WITCHCRAFT FOR WORKING WOMEN

 SAN FRANCISCO, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- If Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton had the opportunity, "The Goddess in the Office" by Z. Budapest, one of America's best-known witches, is the resource they would have turned to when they tried to do in sexual harasser extraordinaire Dabney Colemen in the movie "9 to 5." Or that Melanie Griffith would have resorted to when Sigourney Weaver stabbed her in the back...
 The perfect gift for National Secretary's Day on April 21, "The Goddess in the Office" is a book for every woman who works in an office -- it's dedicated to two celebrity victims of sexual harassment, Anita Hill and Dr. Francis Conley "and the millions of women who tell the truth." Had Anita Hill had access to Z. Budapest's goddess gorilla tactics 11 years ago, we might not have Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court now!
 If Hill had only sprinkled hot foot powder around Thomas' desk, Budapest speculates things might have turned out differently. Hot foot powder ("purchased from an occult supply store or specialty catalog") is just what its name suggests, a powder that will cause the harasser to hot-foot it out of the office!
 Or Hill could have worn bergamot oil, which is "powerful enough to protect against all evil." Budapest even recommends a strategy for "Full Force Hexing" involving a doll made out of black cloth stuffed with stinging nettle herbs as a last resort for those very serious cases. It takes nine nights, and Budapest admits that "nine nights in a row is a long time, and you will find yourself wanting to fudge it. The hexing will interfere with your nightly routine or your favorite show on TV ... However, if your life is on the line, or at least your career, you have to stand up against your oppressors."
 The book was actually inspired by the Hill-Thomas hearings, however, most of it is whimsical and witty, focusing on suggestions for creating harmony and good will within an office. If harassment is not your favorite secretary's problem, and she would just want to know what color clothes to wear to increase her chances of getting a promotion or what scents will enhance her communication skills, Budapest has the answers.
 Your favorite office worker will find advice on everything from what do to when the computer is down or won't behave, or how to protect her job (especially relevant during these precarious times of increasing layoffs), to throwing an office birthday party and even creating a love spell if she's attracted to a co-worker.
 So go out and buy your secretary a copy of "The Goddess in the Office" ($10, Harper San Francisco Publishers), then take her out for a "tender loving lunch," which Budapest recommends to foster tender loving care and to help show your favorite office worker how much you value her.
