We've had questions on people's age and geographic location, but a recent post from Onionhead got me thinking that I don't know what most of you do for a living.

I'm a reporter/photographer for a weekly newspaper. I started in page layout in 1988, learned graphic design, darkroom, digital imaging, and eventually displayed an aptitude for writing and reporting. I cover general community news, municipal government, features, business stories, the occasional accident or fire, lots of cheque presentations and old fashioned hole diggings. I also write a weekly general interest column and review a bad movie every month.

What about you guys?

I'm a software developer by profession.  Currenty I work for ezboard, a company I helped start a few years back with some basic server architecture I wrote.  I've done stuff ranging from web programming to desktop applications to server applications to middle-ware communications software

Receptionist for a law firm (everybody assumes I am an attornery, or have legal knowledge - I am not, and I don't) and a writer.  Someday I hope to work full time as a writer.

I was a Military Policeman in the Army for a number of years, and have Degrees in History, Religion, Education, & Political Science. I was a teacher for a year, but am now firmly convinced public education stinks. I am currently the IT Manager for an Aerospace Business Unit, of a sort of evil (we're next in line for the truly evil list. after Umbrella files bankruptcy) Fortune 500 company. As a matter of fact I'm sure that Andrew rides in machines with any number of our parts in them. We supply parts for everything from NASCAR to the Space Station. In my private life I'm a lay minister in the Assemblies of God (Yes, the same organization that brought you Jimmy Swaggert & Baker [we don't allow any ministers with the name Jimmy or with wives with two names, "Tammy Faye" for example anymore]).  :-)  I do a lot of charity work with Teen Challenge International. I hope someday to produce my B-Movie script and/or be the dictator of a third world nation.

Uhh . . . if my wife ever leaves me . . . I like long walks on the beach, sharing my feelings, and puppies; if she doesn't I like B-Movies, Guinness and puppies (with KC masterpiece BBQ sauce)!

I'm a CPA specializing in financial consulting, forensic accounting, and fraud investigations.

I have been slowly working toward my B.A. in film by taking courses at Emerson College (Henry "The Fonz" Winkler is an Emerson alumnus) whenever I have a chance (I think I'm only 9 classes away from the degree).

I'll probably never make it into the film industry because I'd have to take an entry level job and a serious pay cut, but I want the degree anyway.

When I discovered this web site a few years ago I was a general manager at a retail store.  Then I realized there were not enough lawyers in the world so I decided to go to law school.  I currently clerk for a legal aid office where I help poor people with their legal problems.

Denis Leary went to Emerson too, I believe....

I'm a postal worker--have done that for almost seven years now.  I like to say that the place has stolen my youth.  I work with a big machine that sorts/mutilates magazines and other large envelopes.   Just about all the crazy stuff you imagine about postal workers is true--there are a lot of wackos where I work.   I make good money but I hate the hours and the working conditions.  

I have an English degree--this fall I'm quitting my job, relocating, getting married, and going back to school, hopefully to learn something more practical.   Actually, I will probably end up going into accounting.  I also write and am going to apply for a writing fellowship, but I don't have many illusions about making a living in writing.

I'm a student at Wartburg College, majoring in writing.  I just recently got screwed out of writing the movie review column for a local paper, and I work at CDGB's, one of the three biggest independent record stores in the country.  Anyone swinging by Mason City, IA should stop by.  That's not just a plug, really, it's an incredible store.

Anyone else notice that most of us work in a technology based job????  Guess the geek stereotype is true.  :o)

I work for an ISP in my area as Tech Support.  Pay isn't great, but the hours are nice (7:30 AM-3:30PM), and it gives me time to take online classes and work on a screenplay.

I'm happy with it for now, or atleast until I'm the head of the democratic party. :o)

Anyone got any ideas
