Friday Happy Hour: Super-Specific Dream Jobs

Original image

1. Let's talk about your dream job. Forget about educational requirements or your lack of relevant experience. For reasons not entirely clear, you've been granted the privilege of choosing whatever job you'd like. Don't waste this opportunity with vagueness, or punt if you really love your current job. I've thought about this a lot in the last 10-12 minutes. I'd like to be the director of marketing for an expansion NBA franchise in a city without another major sports team in the two years prior to the inaugural game. (With a driver, of course.) Or the chief fundraiser for a children's charity, responsible for convincing people to donate cool stuff to put up for auction. (From home, preferably.) How about you?

2. We've talked about your worst individual roommates before, but let's expand on that. A few years ago, a friend of mine pitched several magazines a story about his rag-tag crew of random housemates in DC. An editor told him that the bar was extremely high for 'group house' stories, because any time you throw a bunch of strangers in together, hilarity and insanity are bound to ensue. So while you might not be able to get the story of your crazy housemates published, we'd still love to hear them.

3. What's the longest you've ever driven without pulling over to sleep? (We will accept group trips, where you shared driving responsibilities with your fellow passengers and slept between shifts behind the wheel.)


4. My wife and I are celebrating Valentine's Day a week late. Babysitters have been arranged; reservations have been made. We just need to decide on a movie. What should we see? (And if fondue and a movie doesn't sound exciting, remember we have a seven-month old. I was less excited for Disney World in 1990.)

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
