People in your neighborhood

Posted by laura on Mar 26 2008 | Uncategorized

Some of the friends who came to our party on Sunday:

  • architect
  • photographer 
  • programmer
  • teacher
  • surgeon
  • artist
  • writer
  • mother
  • dog groomer
  • event guru
  • scientist
  • father
  • IT specialist
  • finance wizard
  • inventor
  • project manager
  • program director
  • human resources 
  • graphic designer
  • lawyer
  • sales director
  • accountant
  • musician
  • journalist
  • entrepreneur

This isn’t everybody, and some of these people hold more than one of these jobs. Also, I’m just looking at what they get paid to do, not what they are, in the interest of space. (With the exception of the mothers and the fathers – that gets a little complicated when it comes to compensation, but they’re full time gigs.)

How cool were the conversations?! I particularly loved it when the artist complained to the scientist that her job description was inconvenient – “I can’t put you into a box!” said the artist. Going by stereotypes, you’d think it might have been the other way around. But then, the scientists and the artists always seem to have much, much more in common than stereotypes allow.

    How do I get a job title that includes “wizard”?

    Also, it’s risky to invite both a surgeon and a dog groomer…they’re always cutting up!!! HA HA! Wheeeeee!

    Actually, you already do. The basic requirement is to do something I just don’t understand. Plus it sounds so much better than ‘guy.’
