What do you do for a living?

JUST KIND OF CURIOUS WHAT EVERYONE DOES FOR FARKLE MONEY.

ME: FREELANCE WRITER. THAT PAYS PRACTICALLY NOTHING. I WORK WITH INNER CITY KIDS TEACHING WRITING WORKSHOPS AND WORKING WITH THEM ON READING SKILLS. NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, THAT PAYS PRACTICALLY NOTHING AS WELL.

OH, AND I MAKE PRACTICALLY NOTHING AS A MUSICIAN, TOO.


(NOT YELLING, YESTERDAY WHEN I TYPED IN ALL CAPS IT SWITCHED IT TO LOWERCASE...NOW I AM CONFUSED.)<---- EDIT

I pretty much make all my money from moderating here.. Banning pays HUGE!!! Just moving posts covers my house payment, alone!!

In my spare time, I travel all over the USA working on hot, stinky paper mills, sweating for 12-16 hours a day and fixing paper machines so we can all avoid using plastic for toilet paper, have magazines, newspaper, copy paper, cardboard, milk cartons, and books. I also work on fiber machines that make filler for ice cream, toothpaste, and other things that you didn't know have paper fiber in them.

You are my hero. Seriously. If you are what stands between the Charmin and Wally world plastic sacks for "hygienic cleansing", your work is as important as Edison's.

Just worked on a Charmin machine last week in Mehoopany, PA..

One of the most important parts of my job is to make sure there's no holes in the sheet, and that it's strong!! Don't want a finger going through, now do we??
