Ryan,

Geez, unemployed and holding a Visa that only allows me to study and not work. I own a man-slave who supports me. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> He IS allowed to work with his Visa. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

In real life, Market Researcher and everyday freak. Last job was held in a bank managing all marketing and financial aspects for a division, then guess what? Yup! Downsized! Currently changing careers to Anthropology maybe Archaeology, so wish me luck.

Kahz, studying for an exam she has tomorrow and hooked on SpyderForum...

I'm the "Manager of Tire Sales" at a Mastercare Bridgestone/Firestone. Mostly I answer the phone. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

kraziekurtis,
You should read the book. Don't judge a book by the number of pages. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Meh...I read it..it's an alright book! The best mandatory book I have had to read in school so far would be Animal Farm or To Kill a Mockingbird...they are equally good!

RYAN,

I used to be a Fabrication Specialist, but recently got de-moted (laid off) So now I'm on Unenjoyment. People use to say, so you're a Fabricator, what do you do tell lies? I'd say "yeah that's the ticket". Anyway been a Mechanic most of my life. Thought about saying I'm a Petroleum Transfer Technician (fancy way of saying I pump gas).

Downsizing/deregulation in the California utility industry resulted in early retirement offers that I couldn't refuse. What a mess now..... I coulda told 'em. ><g>

I was an investigator, finding, prosecuting, recovering theft of service, electric and water. Butt the last few years were spent getting them computerized. They are still using the computer forms/reports/rebilling/accounting I helped develop. I guess I am surprised as I had no formal training in 'puters

Now I do whatever the hell I want. ><g>

I'm a high school teacher. Here my subject area is called Industrial Arts, not sure what it would be in the US, but it covers woodwork, technical drawing, CAD, engineering and information processing. The school where I teach, Sydney Boys High School, is the oldest government high school in Australia and is the number one NSW school in the "Who's Who" list of Australian leaders.

Andrew,

What are you studying? One of my students from way back when I first started teaching is now Associate Professor of Design (I think) at the University of Alberta.
