Disappointed that "writer" is so low and that "super spy/crimefighter" is surprisingly absent, and anything with me and a foreign language is right out, but not at all surprised by number one, and happy with the overall artistic/creative bent of it all. Not sure you'd want me doing your makeup though.

`Writer' does not appear at all. In any form. Nor does `journalist.' I knew all along, I should have been installing elevators. And what in the name of humanity is an `esthetician'?
And why is the comment section of this site in German all of a sudden? Madness, it's all madness...

Just disappointed that Brewmaster was only at 39...;-)
