    one time I got two lawn chairs, put them in the front yard, got my PB and WiFi'd it up.

    The other lawn chair was for my feet.

    I got sooo many mosquito bites.

    it was horrible!

    /creative? ME?

    I'm a web designer, both with the design aspect and the coding part. I also work with video production, both for commercials and with short films I write/direct/act in.

    Hmmm... also do a lot of photography.

    And, I'm a potential MFA candidate for creative writing, and I do that on a yellow notepad but the finished versions are always typed up on my powerbook. :)

    I create slideshows for people in iMovie. Surprisingly, they pay me for that.

    Web Design via TextEdit, Safari, FireFox, IE, Netscape, Terminal
    Computer Programming via XCode, Terminal, TextEdit
    Music Composition via Allegro, Sibelius
    Image Editing via ColorIt!, Photoshop
    Graphic Design via ColorIt!, Photoshop, Illustrator
    Game Design (sort of) via Forge, Anvil, Marathon

    Nothing too overly advanced. I get a little bit of pay sometimes for web design, but nothing else as of yet (hopefully in the near future though).

    I edit short videos with Final Cut Pro 5 (less than 30 minutes long) and do a lot of photography work with Adobe Photoshop CS...I don't get paid for either, but that's my creative outlet. I usually edit on a dual proc 2.3ghz G5 and do my photoshop work on my iBook G4. :)

    That's most beneficial thing I got out of my composition class. ;)
    Also, be sure to include a very detailed definition of any word that you wouldn't use in everyday dialogue, a dialogue being a conversation between two or more people as a feature of a book, play, or movie or to take part in a conversation or discussion to resolve a problem.
