Rumor has it they sell fairly well in certain areas, particularly with the elderly.

What's the toy/pack-in for an adult Happy Meal? When I was a kid, that was pretty much the only reason I'd want one. What's the big draw for an adult Happy Meal? Whoops, forgot I'm posting on a toy-collecting site.  :P

Getting back to the topic, I'm an editor for a chemical research company. Basically, I edit (and conduct research for) large reports that detail the manufacturing processes, production, supply/demand, trade, etc. for major and minor commodity chemicals. Or a better translation...just try to stay awake during the day.  ;)



Geez, there are a lot of old threads!

The "Toy" for the adult happy meals is a step counter (I'm not sure what its actually called) that you place on you and it counts how many steps you take in the day.  

Also to add to what my job is I'm still working in the gocery store but now work as a Sales Specialist which pays me more then my current job as a Courtesy Clerk which I went back to after a few weeks of on my previous post in this thread.  The hours are a lot better then working nights as will.

I work in the art department of a visual effects/animation studio in Dallas.  We do lots of commercial work, and lots of work with Hasbro.  We're about to wrap production on the full length GI Joe movie Valor Vs. Venom.

I started there a year ago as a lowly intern working for free, but am now on a 1 year contract and have gotten a chance to learn and start working my way up.   Now I'm working more hands on in preproduction work for commercials, making animatics, etc...In july I'll be running outpost editing on....ready for this...

Three Star Wars commercials.  

Eventually I hope to learn a lot of editing, compositing and visual effects.

I was interested in starting a thread like this - just curious to know what everyone does when they're not collecting.  It's neat to see such a wide range of jobs and studies that are somehow linked by an interest in Star Wars toys.

I'm a pharmacist.  Yup, professional drug dealer.  You want some good stuff, come to me.   ;)

I will have been doing this for 3 years as of May this year.  I'm currently working in an Extra Foods, which is a member company of the Loblaws/Westfair corporation in Canada.  My job is usually slower than what most pharmacists endure because we are a quieter store.  There are 3 pharmacies in my town of 5000, and 2 of them are located within 1/2 a block of the only medical clinic in town.  On the other hand, we are located on the outskirts of town, so most people use the other pharmacies simply out of convenience.

The pay is good and my hours are flexible.  These are the 2 main reasons for me doing this job because I only work 24 hours a week and spend the rest of my time at home with my 3 year old daughter.  She is my reason for being!   :)

Do I like my work?  Not really, a lot of people still have the mentality that a pharmacy is no different than a fast food joint, but I better digress.  However, it pays the bills and my manager is flexible with switching hours.

It took me 8 years of schooling to get here, 4 years of my B.Sc. studies in Biochemistry and then another 4 to complete my B.S.P.  My original plan was to use my Biochemistry degree to work in the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) forensics lab, but they've been downsizing the last few years.  So I realized that my first degree wasn't going to get what I wanted, and decided that Pharmacy what be an adequate way to use some of my education.  And here I am.

Would anyone else like to enlighten us?  (But without rambling on nearly as long as I did  ::))

Oh man.... where do I begin?

I work full time in a mom & pop electronics store as the assistant manager/movies & music buyer. I also tend bar when I have some free time at a bar that one of my friends works at. I have a small home based business where I do website design and programming (mostly Java, since I'm a certified Java Developer), as well as some freelance design work for a few different firms. I'm also a "working" musician, in the sense that I have a band that is doing some recording for a record label currently, and we are doing some live shows on a semi-regular basis - and getting paid for it.

I also take some classes in computer programming/new media design at the local community college. But I skipped last semester due to lack of time (geez, I've only got 4 jobs  ::) ) and I'll probably skip the upcoming one as well.
