It's been a while since we had one of these threads.   What do you do for a living?   I'll start:

I am the Manager of Production Network Engineering at Go Daddy.  It's the equivalent of four jobs in one, that's for sure.   I also occasionally teach martial arts at a not-so-nearby studio.  Oh, I also run this place.

Go Daddy, huh? When I hear of that company I think of the owner (who is supposedly a real...) and the NASCAR girl commercials. Not sure how fair that is or not. I am not even sure why people don't like the owner.

Retired/student here. Currently taking the summer off.

Too bad they have that Anomalous Materials test next month.

I'm working for a credit union in the DFW area as a programmer, moving on from working as a programmer working on lending and Sales & Service software used by the Big Banks.  I've been a big boy programmer for 6.5 years now.

I'm a housewife.

In my spare time I'm the Chief Executive Overlord of Kraken Enterprises, the corporate parent of Curio City Online.

But mostly I'm a housewife, and I have to go get dinner started.

Maybe he'll let you do something with his stream.

Jeebus Ron - I don't doubt that there are things out there worse than Tub Girl and Blue Waffle but I like to pretend they don't.  I can't unsee those 2 things either. Ugh.

I was this close to googling a picture of an actual blue waffle to post as a joke until I realized I was about to make myself see whatever it is we're hoping to never see.
