Just like the title states, what do you do for a living?
Title States? Oh well something else I've missed...
Errm my job title has never stabilised but now I do a whole lot less gopher and admin work and now mostly do CAD and a bit of IT.
Do you enjoy it, or do you wish you did something else?
Off and on for 9 years almost I've mostly suffered it but now I'm enjoying it.
If you could have/do any particular position/job by flicking a switch, what would it be?
So multi millionaire dilettante is not available? Damn.
Err I guess I'd like to be a programmer... well programming project manager.. know why? So I can try and get a bunch of programmers to remember that a human may at some point wish to use their program and they may even be unfamiliar with even the most basic concepts of .net programming etc.

I N T P to the max. She looked like she was in danger of walking into a stationary object at any moment while at the same I could tell she'd be able to efficiently dissect anything that succeeded in capturing her attention.
Elderly though - perhaps if something "unfortunate" were to happen I could inherit the position.
As to what I do now. Piece together grants, keyboard manuscripts and proposals, electronically draw chemical structures/schemes from pencil sketches, accounting payables, and the department website. Other duties as assigned.
