Same here, but I've transferred from a Diploma to do the Masters this year so the bananas will all be miiiiiiinnnne in a couple of years* ...


I imagine they'd not be worth eating by that point. I think bananas go bad after only a few days left out, weeks if cooled, and months at best frozen. I mean, they'd be more a black, primordial ooze by that time, I'd expect.

Ah yes, but they would be my black, primordial ooze. I would know its bananaish origin and I would be happy.

Horsewoman. Handler, sorter outer of stroppy wotsits, teacher (especially of beginners), and still an apprentice after forty years. With horses as your Master you never stop learning.

I'm going to do all the Monty Roberts training courses and work my way to becoming a Monty Roberts Recommended Associate. That means people will be willing to part with money when they ask me to help them. :D

Exactly

I'm in a University Library stacks department so i have a complete lack of contact with people, hopefully something will come up and I'll be able to move to the regular library but that's a while off yet.

Isn't this the same as the "What do you do" thread? :?

I have never been so humbled as when our daughter started taking riding lessons. I thought I would know how to handle horses and they made sure to prove me wrong. :lol: Four years into it and they're still proving me wrong. :roll:

Of course it is! In reply to 'what is your profession'?, my response is:

However, in reply to 'What do you do?', my reply would be:
Laugh at myself, tease others at every opportunity, as well as confuse, amuse & inadvertently irritate people!! :whistle:

See? TOTALLY different! :lol:

Words mean things. I do lots of things; like convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. This is a thread specifically asking what you do... and then get paid for doing. Plus, the purpose of this thread is to get as many people as possible to profess their non-Spartic professions so that I can feel justified in kicking them in the chest into a pit of death.
