We watch a ton of hgtv. I have it on right now. My nephew likes all the bright colors. House Hunters Intl is one of my faves.
So What do you do for a living?

(I really like this one, just because you really get to see the details of what people do, and the good/bad about it)
Job Title & Industry: "Senior Consultant" - It's so generic but it's what is on my business card, but I guess "Computer/Business Software Consultant" is a little better.
Describe what you do in a few short sentences:
When companies need help implementing, upgrading, merging, customizing, training, etc. ... or anything, their software (I work with PeopleSoft right now) I go in and help.
What are the bests parts of your job?
- the pay; it's good money
- the flexibility; i'm very independant
- hourly pay; if i work, i get paid
- networking; i meet people all over the world
- i like problem solving, and i do a lot of that
- frequent flyer and hotel points!
- my "standard" schedule is M-Th, i do my 40 hours in 4 days, then have Fridays off
What are the worst part?
- Consultants don't often get a lot of respect or thanks; people look at us like we're there to take their jobs, or tell them what to do
- risk; if i am not working, i don't get paid - i've known people to now be able to find work for 6+ months - that means no paycheck!
- travel; for 10+ years (except for the last few months!) i've worked out of state - i see a lot of airports and hotel rooms
- lack of personal time; i often have to work crazy hours
Do you think you are compensated appropriately?
Yes - we get paid well mainly because of the travel and sacrifices we make and hours we work
How much vacation time/time off do you get?
no set amount - i can work as much or as little as i want; but if i don't work i don't get paid. like i am probably taking the rest of Sept off - maybe more, depending on the next project that comes along - but no paychecks!
If you could do it all over again would you pick the same field/career?
Probably. I complain a lot - but overall I like it and I get paid well.
Are you limited to a particular region of the country or world?
Nope, I am all over the place.
What is your dream job (if all barriers were removed)?
I wish I knew this answer!

I'd like to do something like environmental toxicology after grad school.
