Wink What do you do for a living?

Hi all,
I am working as a web programmer, internet is my life, I love social media and online activities, it adds meaning to everything we used to do ...
For me cooking became more exciting after the social sharing got more acceptable ... I love blogging, sharing ...

What about u ?

Retired designer and syndicated writer. Now I do what I please, when I please. And, believe it or not, there's not enough time to do all I want! I can't imagine fitting in a job, too. Yeah, for retirement!!!!!!!

I do Mystery Shopping

I am doing this since I had a shoulder operation a few months back and until my shoulder heals I cant do anything too stressful with my shoulder, so this job is perfect!

I normally work in admin and/or sales

I was a Mystery Shopper for a movie theater that was near us for a few years. They changed hands and the program ended. I loved doing that. I actually belong to another Mystery Shopper site but haven't done any of theirs yet.
