If that's who you are, then that's who you are. I still always automatically write 'student,' because that's who I am.
Yeah. Of course I'm also an artist, a writer (just because I can't write, doesn't mean I'm not still creating... must get around to using voice recognition), entertainer, etc.
Sometimes I crave a simple, totally mundane existence...
Actually, that's total bullshit *grin*
I was very tempted by part time Father Christmas... because it's just so cool:-)
Yeah, that was my number 2 vote.
I kind of feel like storyteller covers an awful lot... and yet not everything...
I love this moment you've shared. I'm too tired to explain, but am sending big red buckets of love.
Forgot one , writer as well .
Although there so many ohters you fit into , problem is they don't that much room on the forms :(.
My occupation sucks right now , I am a bum :(.
ahhhhhh forgot parttime father christmas .
That'll teach me to post a comment at 2:48 in the am .
I'm glad I don't have to fill that form in, I'd run out of room to write my 'occupation'.
Weird, I can't remember that being on the birth certificate. Oh well, must have been!
Even though it isn't something you do for money I suggested "blogger" because it is a major part of your writing, and because Lex will be able to see so much of his life in the blog.
I've suggested "entrepreneur" because I think it gives you a bit of leeway :->
I am not sure what you should put. A different perspective however is that I am starting to work down my family tree, geaneology, and I know the occupation on a birth certificate can help track down information of the parent.
It may not be embarrassing for Lex, But to a certain extent, and this will probably make the decision harder, what do you want your descendants to know about you? How do you want to be described / identified 100 years from now?
I just checked what I put, because I coudn't remember, and I left it blank!
So there's an option. Probably not a good one though.
This is how Lex will identify you to his friends.
Age 2: My daddy. Not your daddy.
Age 3: That's my daddy. He has long hair/a beard/a penis (believe me, Cassie used this to describe her father).
Age 6: This is my dad. He's Father Christmas.
Age 10: My dad's name is Danny. He sells Dr Who stuff.
Age 12. That's just my dad.
Age 15: Don't walk near me, dad. I don't want people to know we're together.
Age 20. Let me introduce you to my dad. At the moment he's the judge of the Miss Australia contest. Nest year? Who knows.
Notice the one constant. No matter what you choose to call yourself, to Lex you'll always be dad.

I usually say I am the AV guy-yes its for the cool toys.
yeah Dad is cool and important; you have family and you are someone's family.
On your quiz I did put down part-time Father Christmas, as well as writer, that is more how I know you these days.
Identity is an interesting thing. "I often tell people I met my wife at a science fiction convention, she was a Romulan and I was a Vogon" No-one is suprised my daughter loves Red Dwarf and will ask questions like "which one is you're favorite, Cat or Kryten?"
I thought not the Father Christmas answer (although it is very cool), because what if he still believes in the one true Father Christmas? :)
I like the idea of Drover/eBayer as a way of linking past and future...
But I voted for Story-Teller. Perhaps 'Bloke', but you've already got Oz in your name :)
Oh, and you forgot Slaveen :)
