Musician
Author
Minister
Physicist
Comedian
NBA star
Stay-At-Home Dad
Park Ranger
Game Show Host(Yes, I realize my current job isn't on that list, but I guess that's why I get paid for it ;))

Well you'll get mine one at a time, because I'm not patient enough to come up with nine at once.

But I saw Wyntermoon's "Artic explorer" and want to modify it to just "explorer." But like back in the days when they wore all khaki and slashed through jungles with machetes and would come home and smoke cigars and drink brandy in clubs afterwards and talk about their adventures.

That kind of explorer.
