    Actually I was quoting Dave Barry. I am a professional bullshitter and liar. In other words I am in advertising and communications. Edited: Communicashuns Expirt Kan't Spayle
    I was in the ad racket for a while. But then they found out my parents were married when they had me.

    I keed.

    How about down near Kamakura? I remember seeing a lot of surfing going on down there.

    I know people surf there, but I never have.

    It is technical, whatever it is. My management changes the name and description of what I do on an annual basis.

    Right now I do leasing for a real estate developer. Hopefully if things pick back up in the economy, I want to start flipping houses.

    I don't spend all that much on clothing, but that may (somewhat) change soon.

    I'm a label designer for a medical manufacturer that produces pharmaceutical, surgical, and consumer products, as of this morning. Prior to that, I was a retail sales associate.
