I'm curious about my friends on SP....
Tell me, what is your occupation?

Well, I am striving to be a successful musician- :smt035 success meaning, eventually quitting my dayjob, and traveling the world singing-making enough money to buy a horse farm, and support my parents when they're old, and retire-

BUT, till then I am actually a office manager for an amazingly talented photographer. It's a pretty cool job. We rent our studio to others and there have been some cool shoots here!

SO-tell me what you guys do for bread and bacon on the table!

*"I fly a starship across the Universe divide...."

Actually, B-52 Simulator Maintenance Technician.

"Stimulation through Simulation"

* Johnny Cash portion of "The Highwaymen":

I was a highwayman, along the coach roads I did ride,
With sword and pistol by my side.
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade.
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade.
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five:
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor, I was born upon the tide.
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico.
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
And when the yards broke off, they said that I got killed:
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide;
Where steel and water did collide.
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado,
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below.
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound:
But I am still around.
I'll always be around,.
And around and around and around and around.

I fly a starship across the Universe divide.
And when I reach the other side,
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can.
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again.
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain;
But I will remain.
And I'll be back again,

And again and again and again and again.

During the day I work in a warehouse inspecting car filters. Had no idea there were so many shapes and sizes. I love the people I work with and the bosses treat us with much respect.

At night I fly with the faeries and hang with the elves.

Long-haul, Over-the-road truck driver.

I love my job, I get to hang out with my best friend everyday (hubby), see the whole country (all 48 at least), great pay, beautiful scenery, etc etc.

Yesterday I drove through Wyoming, right now I'm in Reno, tomorrow I'll be in California somewhere. Fun, fun!
