One of the dudes I was working with in Tech Support is a dead head. I wasn't really into the dead, and I placated him a whole lot. Then after he got canned I went to Archive.org to listen to what the whole fuss was about. After listening to my First Dark Star I was hooked. Now it has been a year since I have started listening, and my mother in law (a true dead head) is in shock at my live collection up to now. Man, where have I been all my life. I still work at the Tech Support place and I havent talked to my old coworker since he got canned, but i carry on the dead's spirit here. I guess I'm a Tech Dead Head....
I am the Assistant Golf Professional at a private golf club in Victoria BC Canada. I also manage the bag room where the members golf bags are stored. In winter we are short staffed and I work only in the bag room. It is pretty chill I have computer speakers with my Ipod plugged in and I listen to the grateful dead whenever I am in the storage room probably 4 hours a day. In the summer I am very busy working in the proshop assisting members and selling merchandise. This summer coming up is the first time that I will be a qualified professional instructor so I am excited about being outside teaching golf and running junior camp for kids. Thare are not any deadheads who I work with however I am surprised at how many members of the golf club come into the bag room hear my GD playing and recognize it and like that is always a fun time of my day.
I toil on the line for Chevy. It's a job and hopefully my kids will never do. Right now as I can figure I'm the only Deadhead in the building---scary.
I am a plant Supervisor for the local CATV provider.
I work inside the belly of the beast otherwise known as a predatory credit card company that shall remain nameless. I work with the customers who unwittingly have been financially steamrolled. If you get me on the phone I'm the best friend you've ever had. I used to play music semi professionally but now my hearing is shredded and I've lost the desire to be around high volume music.
I am the Assistant Forester for a city in Illinois. Mainly I coordinate our tree planting program, Arborday celecration, help with snow operation, and supervise the mosquito abatement program. I love my job beacuse I get to go out in the field when I want and I have enough paperwork to keep me inside when its nasty out.
If it were not for having such a great job and my family I would not be in Illinois. I love the west and plan to get out there as soon as possible.
Wow, the title is loooooooooooooooooooooooonger than the body of the comment, heheheheheheheheheh :).
Anyway, I'm teaching English to non Anglo-Saxon "knuckleheads" in the EU right now!.
"May your dogs be with you"
I toil by day heading a software development team for a prominent Canadian telco. And yes, it's as exciting as that description made it sound! ;)
Drop me a PM if you're up for consulting with some folks long distance. i have a good friend in Colorado with a very ailing dog, and she's already using eastern remedies for her. You might have some more current info than what my friend can get in the middle of nowhere Colorado.
I just got a new job managing an acupuncture and Chinese herb treatment center for dogs and cats. So far, so good, though I'm working towards the day when my primary calling -- writing -- lets me move from project to project and place to place working via a laptop and mobile blogging capabilities!
