    I probably have THE most boring job here. I'm an Air Conditioning Duct Mechanic. Basically, I run jobs from time to time, but most of the time I install sheet metal ductwork on commercial job sites. Right now, I'm working at a local college on remodeling the Fine Arts building (the EXACT same stage I sang on when I went to that college 12 years ago.)

    All this talk about going back to school (and working at the college) has made me want to go back. So, probably this weekend, I'm enrolling in an online film school!

    Let's make a movie!

    Nothing too exciting, Admin Asst. But the cool thing is that we are a very small office. 3 employees and the president. It can get super hectic and crazy, but there is some flexibilty, no time clock to punch, and I can get on the internet, when possible.

    I can also take over the spare office at lunch to make patterns or cut out a flightsuit or whatever.

    By dark of night, you can find me huddled over my sewing machine, muahahahahah

    I worked on US Navy aircraft engines like turbo fans, turbo props and turbo shafts for about 16 years or so. After 10 yrs. of active duty I enlisted in the reserves for another 6 years but worked full time as a computer operator which involves working with Cray systems, IBM RS400s and tape silos. Later on, I worked for a financial company as a computer operator working on SQL query language and some SQL server cluster administration. Since the birth of my daughter in 2005, I have been a part-time realtor and a full-time dad...boy I really miss talking to adults and doing challenging things!

    Federal Firefighter for the Navy, same kind of work as the city dose just not as many calls and gets paid a LOT better

    Also im the Station Chief/Team Chief for my Army Reserve unit. Im a firefighter there also. Well not so much a firefighter, more like a paper pusher these days. About to become the acting first sergeant here shortly from what im being told; but ive been told that for a while. All the responsibility none of the pay

    So if anyone on the Houston area is interested in becoming a Army Reserve firefighter let me know. I know cheap plug

    COOL! I too have a B.A. in Anthropology. From the University of Memphis. It makes my fedora and Wested Jacket fit better! My day job, however, is Department Manager(Seasonal Dept.) for Lowe's Home Improvements here in Corbin, Ky (Birthplace of KFC). I did spend 5 years as a Casino Host at Hollywood Casino in Tunica, MS back in the 90's. DREAM JOB for a single guy, however, I was married with children. No longer have the wife, but have full custody of my son and daughter. So it's ALL GOOD!

    I am a product designer, currently working for a product design consultancy called Edge Product Development in Newtown, PA. I'm working on designing next generation Military Body armor, amongst other projects. The armor project just takes up most of my time.
    Previously I've worked as a mechanic for a police department for 7 years, and worked as a product designer for Hasbro toys, Fisher Price toys, Frontgate Catalogue, and Ethicon Endo Surgery.
