    I work in American Higher Education which is where my cynicism toward American Higher Education stems.

    All aspiring actresses need to impress you first? With their acting skills I mean.

    I'd be asking for a huge side of chips and ketchup, and perhaps a bun to make chip butties.

    chips as in fries, not crisps

    Not interested in cuisine moleculaire (a.k.a. molecular gastronomy)? Such a restaurant is open in my town and I recently sampled such delicacies as smoked hay ice cream, arugala jelly, peanut butter powder, and the omnipresent staple of all such restaurants, the mozzarella balloon.

    The only time I tried it (in barcelona a few years ago) I found it disturbing to be honest. And it wasnt that impressive, except maybe a chocolate cloud I had in dessert that was really incredible.
    Maybe I dont like to think and eat out of the box...

    ^^ it's a cuisine that regrettably seems more intended to amuse and please the chef ("look, everyone, at how clever I am") than to please the customer.

    Diamonds are an excellent currency for activities you don't want traced. Sentinel, I know a trustworthy fence based in Dubai. In order to maintain his anonymity, I will refer to him as R. Federer. Would you like me to set up a meeting?

    That is very energy consuming job :p


    OP, I think you started this thread to see what major you want to do in the college and job availabilty.

    First, you have to think about what kind of things you like to do most of time.
    Second, you have to find out if the things you like to do can pay you good consistently.

    If the things you like to do doesn't pay you good, you have to choose different field. You are going to have your own family sooner or later.

    If high paying field doesn't interest you, then you have to find next interesting field.

    Most consistently high paying field is Petroleum related field, Medical field, computer programing and Nursing ( depends on the state but around $56/hr starting pay in CA Bay Area), chemist, phamaceutical+ something I don't know.

    If your brain is not meant to be physician, try nursing ( that is not easy as well but less stressful). If you are planing to live in *******, forget about becoming a nurse. RNs get consistent job security.

    I'll come to the Jumeria Hotel dressed as a Priority One exec, with a bunch of Wilsons. Under the buttcap will be the "stones". Now how to I recognize this fence of yours. DOes he have any distinguishing features, like perhaps a large nose or something.

    I didn't partially, because we have so many Americans here and apparently our economy and job avaliability for undergrads is better than yours. :) But thanks for the advice anyway.

    Is that the curved building in the sea or is that Al Burj or something?

    And I will not take anything which you have stuffed up your butt, including diamonds.

    I've got a small very private spa on Av. Vieira Souto in Ipanema. My specialty service is often imitated but never duplicated...Brazilian waxes have become very popular since I perfected my "techniques". Gotta go now, my next appointment just walked in the door!

    I'm really a college student at Arizona State. My plan is to teach creative writing or film at a university level, in addition to my writing at home and film-work. I also have a part-time job as a fitness/tennis attendant at a resort. It's a great job!

    Once Chuck Norris met Rajnikant. From then on, Chuck Norris survives only as a joke on the Internet.

    What do you do for a living?

    Obviously, without giving away too much detail; what do you do for a living?

    Me? I'm a marketing manager for a women's clothing company. Also a stringer and parent.
