Yikes. All of these serious debate threads at once are crowding out the fluff and making me nervous. It's time we had more FLUFF!!

There was a thread that asked us what we did for a living. Now I ask you my fellow Hatrackers, what WOULD you do? If you could get paid to do anything for the rest of your life, what would it be? (Sleeping doesn't count. )

Me, I would be employed at a University with and elite, but small, wealthy, but small music department. I would be head of choral activities and conduct the elite (and small) 40 voice choir...and we would tour around the world singing all the greatest stuff that has ever been written. Yeah, that would be great.

I would invent horrible screaching sounds on a Moog Synthesizer and play them for people.

Dedicate my life to religious research and math.

You know, figure out some way to connect the two, maybe figure out the Meaning of Life and the Mysteries of the Universe.

Or, maybe I can work in a cubicle!

Yeah, that would be fun.

If I could do anything and be paid for it, I would be as sexy as I am all day long and get tons and tons of money for it.

I would smack Paul everytime he turned into a grammar/spelling nazi. If I was paid a grand a day I figure I'd be scoring at about a dollar a pop.

Oh, and I would frequently use terms such as "upside your head," "show you the back of my hand" and the beloved "my pimp-hand is strong."

"my pimp-hand is strong." -- Hahahahahaha! First rate!

I'd play a game of mafia a day, get enough sleep every night and make a movie.

I would actually have the discipline and the skill to write the novels and screenplays that I come up with.

Either that or I'd be a perpetual mooch. Oh, wait, that's probably what I'll end up being, anyway. I love that my friends adore me enough to pay for things like plane tickets.

I would write novels, in reality.

In my fantasy world, I would color giant posters in a variety of markers and sell them for thousands of dollars. With the money, I would pay for the arthritis treatment I would need from coloring in all those little details.

I'd spend all day on Hatrack.

No, I am not addicted. What makes you say that? Huh? I'd fight, but there are so many threads needing me to post on.....

I think, if I could do anything, I would work in the Library of Congress, in the audio department.

I would also play in an orchestra.

edit to add: and sing in Narnia's choir, playing oboe for them whenever needed or wanted.

I'd have a studio and paint for a living.

Probably while listening to Bob's Screeching Moog music

I'd be able to write all of the ideas running around in my head and have it be good. Or lacking that, I'd be a publisher of young adult fantasy and science fiction.

I like Shigosei's choice:

And, of course, during down times, I would spend lots of time at Hatrack - and more time making plans to get together with Hatrack friends.

You know, I was reading this without looking at the date. My first thought was "Oh my gosh, someones gotten a hold of my password."

Then I realized just how vain I was and suddenly, all was right with the world.

Holy moly, this is an old thread!!

Anyone still interested in being in my choir? You'd have to re-enroll in high school, and wait a couple years until I'm done with grad school...oh, and you'd also have to wait and enroll where I eventually get a job, which could be in an exciting place like Kalamazoo! Sounds great! [Smile]
