Odd Jobs

Okay, with all this talk about working and the craziness that is my life it got me thinking about all the weird stuff I have done since I began my illustrious days of bring home a paycheck. That thinking made me want to make a list, so here it is...

Some of these may be slightly out of order and I may have forgotten one or two...But I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours...
