We asked, PartyPants answered:
What do you do for a living??
"In real life I am a sql dba/web developer/php dork. This is nice because I can do it from anywhere, leaving me ample time to drink, comment on blogs, and leave drunk voicemails. I also write occasionally. At the moment I am also working at a nonprofit hospital that treats people without insurance, optimizing the database for approvals so people get their care faster. I guess I thought that was a good way to use my skillset during a time when most people no longer have insurance due to layoffs, benefit cuts, and lower wages."
