Wow, I am impressed by some of the jobs mentioned here. Not terribly surprised though, given some of the intelligent conversations that occur on the board.
Title: Project engineer Reality: Electrical Engineer designing industrial control systems, specializing in tracking and routing systems for float glass production. Six years and running in my field, just made 4 years with my current employer.

Like my bio says, I attempt to teach college students how to speak and write in a fashion that indicates some familiarity with the American language. Currently, I'm teaching Presentation Techniques and College Composition, but I'll be picking up an Ethics class and an Organizational Comm class in the fall. I also moonlight as a general laborer/jack of all trades at a Christmas Tree farm. Most importantly, I'm also the parent of two children.
Trust me on this one. If you ever go adventuring, always try to find the situation where the appropriate words are: "Damn! We're too late! The villain hath done his villainy and decamped to parts unknown!" --Ignace, agent extraordinaire
I'm currently in the process of dropping out of high school, looking to get my GED and head off to Fitchburg State College to major in Communications or some other field that'll eventually have me hosting Jeopardy and running the show behind the scenes on Wheel of Fortune. It's this dream I have. :)

Lets just say when you here the word "shortage" it's BS. Granted crude oil is up a little bit which does add to some of the cost, but not near enough to equal what you are paying now. The national average for gas come July will be over $2 a gallon (which I know it already is some places) you can bank on that.
WIENER OF THE DAY! July 6, 2002!
Wienerville Survivor League Co-Champion If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
I'm a Production Coordinator, a fancy term for "everything," for a weekly alternative paper in the Upstate of S.C. I design ads (inlcuding logos), layout pages, draw and photograph covers, and maintain the website.

And probably work about 60-70 hours a week making somewhere between 2-3 bills a week...I'm not mocking, this is "been there /done that/ own the t-shirt/still have the badge of honor in my storage boxes somewhere" sympathy.
I am an accountant for the Dept. of Treasury and I also stock shelves at a Toys R Us on the weekends
"I'm not that big, but I'm fast, I'm pretty sure I can outrun the whole Dallas Cowboys team." --high school senior RB (and possible future Boomer Sooner) Adrian Peterson on his thoughts on his chances in the NFL
Am I the only person who hope this kid signs into the NFL and Roy Williams and Parcells get to let that comment stew for the next 7 months?
I'm a biologist for a chemical company. I will be sitting for my boards in nursing come June and then move into a clinical setting. And finish my grad work in cell biology. Oh, and push out a kid in August so then I'll be a mommy, too.
Does anyone ever read Simmons' articles on espn.com's Page 2? This guy is great. He is hilarious, in the way that you're like "Yeah, I thought of that, too." I really enjoy his 3 columns a week over there.
