English Teacher in Brazil, China, Korea, Japan, Mexico

Just finished my Truck driving license and can't find a job that will pay me more than I make doing balloons Tongue

Edit: Now Pipefitter/Welder... good money but still nowhere near the $$$ I make with my weekend balloon career...

First of all,

I was a corporate sales producer and corpoarte sales trainer.

But I need to set the record straight.
It is time the truth was told.

PJ,

Prior to becoming the New KING OF POP  ( A title I bestowed upon him)

Was an internationally known stunt double. His most famous clients were Michael Jackson ( PJ actually was the one
set on fire during the filming of the Pepsi commercial. The client that most intrigues me...Vern Troyer. YES! Mini-Me. PJ was performed
all the stunts for Vern in the Austin Powers Movies and Harry Potter! An amazing use of camera angles! With PJ being slightly taller than Vern...by about 4 inches....the camera work was very convincing.

PJ currently is under going extensive platic surgery so he may serve his country as the official security double for the First Lady, Michelle OBama.

PJ obviously has not seen the posting.

Because he would have claimed to be the stunt double for all the love scenes in the 007 movies.

Just saw the postings... I was never a stunt person.  I was a stunted person (I live at home in my mother's basement and work on web designs.)

I was (and still am, just not so often) a fine artist and painted a lot of comissioned animal and pet portraits as well as a little sculpting.  I was also a volunteer and costume mascot at the local zoo (Huh what was I thinking??)  My mom paints too.  But economy tanked and we couldn't do it full time anymore, so we started twisting!  I also started making the jewelry.  We're a family of three (single mom, sis and me) and worked as a team to keep from losing our house!

I am a Special Ed teacher, too. Hey Sara K, what do you teach?

I teach in an appallingly underfunded inner city HS, and the kids I teach are the Emotional/Behavioral disability kids. Hence "Ms. Cracker", as in "that's MS Cracker to you!" Seriously, I love these kids though.

I also am getting my Masters in SpEd with the thesis-writing bit going on now, and so I don't have time to do paid twisting much but I still practice (like yesterday was the school picnic and I brought balloons, and the kids were lined up!). When I finish up my masters, I will start going to hula practice again, finish the novel I started last November (National Novel Writing Month.....I'm at 64,000 words but it isn't done yet), AND start getting my dream of a balloon business going.

This would be really funny if it weren't happening to me!
