I sell/buy investment grade real estate. Specialize in Apartment Complexes and Self-Storage facilities. Money's good, hours suck, but hey - I can mud whenever I want! Living on 100% commission rocks. Too bad all of it goes to the Uncle Sam. I think this is a good outlet for me to crush stuff and cathartically (thats not a word) chill with my peeps.

I started a biotech company 2 years ago. We specialize in determining protein structures via computational analysis. Most of our Scientists and Engineers are from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, so we don't have many 'cool' parties in our offices.

Since I don't do much at work any more since the company is running pretty well (hired good managers) I started to mud at work.. been a bad habit lately.

Original post
Hehe, I would, but I live in Ct now. My kinda-sorta g/f still lives out there tho, I'll let her know.
Is the age out there 18 or 21 for a tattoo? I've heard conflicting reports from different places...
But I was thinking of the Jade Dragon because everyone's been telling me it's "one of the best in the world"
I'd rather take the time to explain someone exactly what I'd like tho, and have it done right.
Altho, I am going out there in July, I could finally get my dragon colored in

I spend all day writing the stuff that you see written in fortune cookies!

So when you crack open a cookie and read, 'NOKIE IS OKIE!!' You know who did that!

Oh, and as a side-job, I analyze the weights of batches of toothpicks for variations when determining cost.

If you count all the clerics on the mud and me, myself, and I, that makes around 100 combatmedics on the mud!

In my copious spare time, I'm father to 2 toddler daughters, homeowner, husband, graduate student in CS (working part time on Master's degree), and player, coder, area-builder for Sojourn3. I'm not sure how I find time for all that, and many times I don't. Despite my full load, I hope to have a new zone ready for you all in the next couple months. =)
Uthgar

I can answer that: I am mother to two toddler daughters, homeowner, wife and household accountant... full time. I just realized how much I do in a day since I'm sick with the flu, haven't done anything but the bare minimum for two days, and the house is on the edge of a health code violation :P

I honestly don't know how anyone does it in families where both parents work full time... unless you hire a housekeeper, sitter and accountant. At that point it would cost more for me to work outside the home than it does for me to stay home with the kids.

Of course, Sarvis already had a thread dealing with exactly that, can't find it atm tho.
