What Is Your Dream Job?

Rambling Web has moved. Read entire Dream Job article.


"I was recently laid off from a small company where I served as the Web Developer / Web Designer of several websites. While this is my chosen field, I definitely did not grow up thinking 'I want to be a web master when I grow up,' and certainly didn't grow up thinking, 'I want to be a web mistress when I grow up.' Not only was there no internet to speak of at the time, the absurdity of the job titles would have DQ'd them instantly.

So as I work to get my own sites and resume together, I have been thinking: What would truly be my 'dream job.' First up, 'Furniture Maker & Service Dog Trainer.' This job combination truly fits the 'dream' category, as any realistic look at this as an option knocks it right off the potential job list. First and foremost, I have no furniture making skills. Am handy enough that if someone was in desperate need of a table, I could probably put one together. However, I'm not interested in being a lousy furniture maker. Second, I don't have the appropriate set up for even owning a dog let alone training a service dog.

The 'California Design 1930-1965 Living in a Modern Way' is good for adults and children. It's fun, colorful, and interesting; an entertaining history lesson on the rapid development of California based off its unique style . It is also an excellent introduction to industrial design.

Mom and I, Looking for the Hookers in the Windows

Rambling Web has moved... Here's a clip from today's post: Looking for Hookers with My Mother... In Amsterdam

"...One night at dinner my mother, my aunt, my aunt’s friend and I were talking about tomorrow’s activities in Amsterdam. My aunt and mother were discussing how they heard that the prostitutes in Amsterdam stood in glass storefronts. The three of them, I thought, were joking when they decided it would be fun to find these ‘hookers in the windows.’ My mother scheduling this activity would not have been too shocking, but it was unexpected from my aunt and her friend as I thought it was a well known fact that hookers are rarely kept in the nice part of town.

Anyway, that afternoon after seeing the sights, my mother, aunt, her friend, and I went out looking for hookers. The belief was that hookers wouldn’t go on duty until the afternoon, so as it got dark we started trying to find the red light district. As it became clear that they were not joking, I started to protest.

“Is this really a good idea?” … “I doubt the hookers live in the nice part of town.” … “Seriously, are we really looking for the hookers in the windows?...”
