Lacking inspiration...

since my daughter has given me the cough-from-hell as a lovely Christmas present, I'll take advantage of the fact that Buck was nice enough to tag me with an interesting meme: Work

It’s simple. Just list all the jobs you’ve had in your life, in order. Don’t bust your brain: no durations or details are necessary, and feel free to omit anything that you feel might tend to incriminate you. I’m just curious. And when you’re done, tag another five bloggers you’re curious about.

My list will be in no way as interesting as his (I *grrrr* at him for not providing more details on some of the more....intriguing jobs he's held) but here ya go:

-Volunteer at the Tempelhof AB Recreation Center (so I could spend time there and play AD&D, even though I was under age!)
-Airshow announcer
-Garden worker
-Hedgehog rehabilitator
-Organizer of and entertainer at children's birthday parties
-Chocolate factory worker
-Department store candy stocker
-Miss Sissi Bay (or rather, half of Miss Sissi Bay!)
-College student
-Air Force Basic Trainee
-Apprentice Cryptologic Linguist (Korean)
-Wedding singer
-Stay-at-home mom
-Football stadium cleaner
-Library aide
-Commissary vendor-stocker
-Blockbuster CSR
-Receptionist at polyurethane foam factory and sales office
-Clerk at insurance office (eleven eternally long days, before I got fired)
-Certified Nursing Assistant
-Unit clerk on the respiratory unit at rehabilitation hospital
-Medical front and back office assistant at Internal Medicine practice
-Pizza delivery person
-Beer -Beverage cart driver on golf course
-Waitress/bartender at same golf course
-Massage student
-Spa coordinator
-Massage therapist
-College student

That's it, I believe. I won't tag anyone, but feel free to partake, this was FUN!
Thanks, Buck!

You need to explain this one "Hedgehog rehabilitator". WTF?

Christina RN LMT said...

Hedgehogs are a protected species in Germany. They are excellent pest-controllers in gardens, but they have fairly large territories and are often flattened when they try to cross traffic. My English teacher found a hedgehog with a litter of babies in his garden in the fall, and it was too late in the season for the babies to be able to survive the winter (they were too small, the mom would hibernate and they would die), so he farmed out the kits? puppies? cubs? (no clue what baby hedgehogs are called!) to his students. So I had a hedgehog in my room over the winter. Little fucker kept me awake all night, since they're nocturnal. Finally, I had fattened him up enough that he went into hibernation. The following spring all the babies were released into the wild. It was an interesting experience!

Thanks for the linky lurve, Christina! This, of course, popped RIGHT out at me:

Apprentice Cryptologic Linguist (Korean)

Did you go to Monterrey for linguist school? Or elsewhere? The AFSC for linguists in the waaay-back was 203X0, and I knew a TON of Russian linguists when I was in the spook biz. They were ALL crazy... every danged one of 'em... and the best partying folks I ever knew in the Air Force, bar none.

As for details on my list... all ya gotta do is ask and I (might) would tell ya. Depends on the question, ya know. ;-)

Thanks for playing!

And... lastly (for this comment): MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christina RN LMT said...

Merry Christmas, Buck!

Yup, went to DLI at the Presidio of Monterey. That's where I met the Ex. It was one of those techschool things...;)
And all linguists are nuts, that's a given!
Details, details...I'll get back to you on those...:)

Christina RN LMT said...

Merry, merry Christmas!
