The best thing about our jobs, DC, is that we get to enjoy the outdoors. Working behind a desk is OK in the winter, but I prefer to be outside in the summer. The only thing I dislike about my job is the insects, especially this year. The mosquitos are so bad that we have to liberally spray each other with insect repellant to keep them away. Our crew people were thinking about getting mosquito netting to put over their hardhats.

We saw a show the other day (local in SC, I think). These 2 guys are comedian/fishermen. From what I understood of the show, they get paid to just go fish with different people and tell jokes. Where can I get a job like that? Not necessarily fishing, but wow, the ideas some people come up with, and make money with!

I just started work as a credit fraud detective as I like to call the position. Basically I recieve paperwork that can range from "Oh the atm didint give me my $20" to "People stole my card from the mail and went on a shopping spree". I have acess to ATM records, security cameras and all that and well I figure out what course of action needs to be taken.

Edit: btw this is either ironic or "a full recovery" since one of my first buisnesses was fencing stolen goods when I was in highschool (besides scamming tourists by "reading their palm or tarot").
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

I cook a couple of things very well. Hubby does most of the cooking but I will say that I can bake well enough that you would weigh 300lbs at my house! Lots of yummies and I almost always pawn them off on other people.

I used to be in nonprofit management and health education but am home now (long story but a good ending at least!). I still do a little consulting and grant writing on the side but I'm keeping things quiet until the baby comes in the fall.

I am a primary school teacher which i really love. I have 2 kids so I'm a housewife and a mum too I guess!
if anyone has any easy recipes for 30 people to cook together with very little equipment I'd love to have them.
