    So I am curious, what do you do for a living, assuming you don't mind my asking? And, really, everyone feel free to share their career choices with us all! I happen to be a Data Storage Engineer that works in the government sector (contractor) in the DC area.

    As an informed close source-

    I know as the rent day draws closer Luke can be found down at the corner of Hollywood & Vines working it for all he's got. I think his street name is "Fancy Pants."

    Oh Lordie! Now that is funny.

    ***Files the name "Fancy Pants" away for next March...***

    I think that is a little bit of transference there my friend. I am not the one who joined the male underwear model fan club on facebook and raved about how much he loved Elton John- and not just his music.....

    Seriously though, I am a Soldier- that's how I earn my living.

    With my user name, can you guess what I do for a living?

    Yep, that's right. Full Time United Methodist Minister. I pastor three churches.

    So, Luke, how long have you been in the military?

    Yeah Dale, what was that all about, NAMBLA?

    As for me, I work a warehouse for a small company that sells and maintains coin and currency counters. Yes, it is as exciting as it sounds. It doesn't get the reactions I used to get when I told people I worked as a receiver at a gay pet store. That was fun.

    Apparently that's my evil twin who only comes out when I leave my laptop running in a hotel with Luke running amuck. ;)

    Well, thank you for your service. Do you have some notoriety around base as the son of AD&D? And I echo Falconer; what level are you? Army? (the only true service) :D

    I'm just a "factory grunt." Warehouse specialist. I work for a small injection molding company that makes syringes & other items for the medical industry. My resume' is very extensive with experience in everything from shoveling pig feces to owning my own delivery service. I preferred the second option. :lol:

    I did that as well! Although, I have to say on the "poop scale" its not as bad as a room full of dogs with diarrhea!

    I'm mostly in science crap for the past twenty years but not a scientist more like a super tech specialist that does day to day shit.

    I still like the thought that Luke walks the night looking for some strange for a piece of change!

    Or, maybe I'm still looking for payback for leaving my laptop in the hotel with him. :p

    Wow we are going to have two gaamer geek ministers on the site! That's cool.

    I am in the Army (more specifically I am an AGR in the CA Army National Guard). I am a Captain- I am not sure where that puts me level wise. I think I would prefer to assess myself using a point sytem with skills due to the fact that I have 11 years enlisted prior to taking a commission. SO I would benefit more from that kind of a system. Perhaps the old school Traveler system could be used as I am getting close to being able to muster out. Anyone remember the old traveler with the small black books? That was the last time I played it- roughly 1982 or 83. I think it was at Gen Con at UW Park Side

    I remember those little black books. Some kid in elementary school had them and we played it a few times. The only part of your military service that counts towards levels is your enlisted time. You don't gain XP for officer-loafing! :lol: ;) I was in the VAARNG. Made Specialist and ejected. I was infantry and got tired of having my love of camping ruined...

    Okay, for those of us who never had the honor of serving our country, (NOT THAT WE DIDN'T TRY, 4-F MY ARSE!), whatssa AGR?

    IIRC, AGR stands for Active Guard/Reserve; or he means he is on active duty in the Army National Guard or Army Reserves.
