I work at a movie theater. I'm also currently writing a series of short stories. If that counts. And if by "short," you mean half the size of a regular novel.

The IT side of things isn't a big job, mostly because due to lack of money we can't afford to upgrade any of the computers.

And Windows XP is very stable, plus everyone's learnt that I'm just going to tell them to restart their computers before bitching to me. >:oP

I once worked with a woman who yelled for my help from the other office because her computer wouldn't turn on for her.

I walked out, switched it on at the wall and walked back to my own office.

This is the same woman who ... when we got her a new (then CRT) monitor, it came with a "5 year warranty" sticker in the corner of the screen. She asked if she could remove it, I told her "No, that'll void the warranty" and walked away and thought nothing of it (surely she wouldn't be that stupid to believe me).

Half the day went by until I heard her lose it, rip the sticker off and put it on top of the monitor.

Whoops ...

Literary translation. More specifically, my project looks to create a critical manual for comics translation, focusing on Italian to English, and including sociolinguistics, cognitive stylistics, multimodal analysis, semiotics and various aspects of the brass tack mechanics of comics and translation. :D
