I was thinking about editing mine to make your comment of "ROFL!!! WEREN'T WE ALL!!" seem odd and out of place, but I must confess I was lacking of the perfect punchline.



I started off as an international supermodel and a incredible super hero... then I lost my ambition and my good looks so I figured "Heck, if Ikepete can make a living doing that there is no reason I could not do it too"


Anyone buying that one?[/b]

Sure PJ. I did. (not Wink)

I just got a new job, working in an office that repairs and supplys mining motors Grin
I'm still casual at my last job, which was as a staff recruiter and trainer for Woolworths.

Doesn't quite answer the question but fits the current theme lol... Grin I discovered how much fun it was to learn to twist after buying balloons one day at work hehe

Honestly, im just a balloon twister. All my income is from the art and I support myself very well on it =). That might be partially why I never get into the big sculptures that I love so much to look at, because its just not my normal genre of twisting. Before that I was an entertainer at 6 flags unicycling around the park performing stunts on the one wheeled beast. I have never had a job outside of entertainment =-D

Well I work on call/fill in at a nursing home recreation dept. and almost full time special education teacher. What they expect of me in both those jobs isn't very far from entertainment venue either. Teachers have to practically stand on their head to get kids to pay attention now-a-days.

Lets see...  College student in computer programming - did some filler time working for the Montana Dept. of Revenue (temp employee - no benefits) and now have a new found respect for data entry (10-12k strokes / hour - Yuck!).  I served in the military and love my documentaries (preferably military ones - love the tid bits I didn't know - or the ones I know they goofed up on).  Now I am teaching my wife to do animal balloons so she can help assist (her idea)!   Smiley

Had a lot of jobs in my time but  being a magician and doing childrens birthday parties was the best.  It was also where I started balloon twisting.  Next step is to learn bigger balloon stuff.

As a older man of 67 I've done quite a bit in my time.  US military, plumber, retired from general motors 40 yr., delivered flowers part time after retiring. Then balloon twisting as a hobby then get a little income and a lot of satisfaction from this
