I think I need a more obscure job description.

Went to a meeting yesterday, to prepare for another meeting. I was there because it was vaguely vegetation-related, and I do stuff with vegetation as part of my job. So, in our initial go-round-the-table-and-introduce-yourself, that's what I said.

Unfortunately, I'd forgotten that, in the entire department, I am pretty much the only person who has to deal with vegetation.

I am now in charge of a ten-minute presentation at the meeting, in which I will impart my Vast And Impressive Learnings Of Vegetation to the group we're dealing with.
(Said learnings have mostly been picked up by me reading random documents that landed on my desk, surfing websites about weeds, and having confusing conversations with people who use helicopter-mounted chainsaws and want to sell me things.)

*is suddenly rather nervous*

That's what you get for not just saying "Hi, I'm deird1 and I do stuff. Next?"

It really is...

I've got to learn how to be more vague.

I'm not sure if I want your job, or want desperately to stay as far as possible away from your job...

I thought Mad Max 2 was fictional?

Seriously. Huge chainsaws attached to helicopters. They're kind of awesome.

(Watch the video at the website. It's interesting...)

I'm an ongoing facilitator? Resource enhancer?

Or how about Strategic Development Mgr? We have one of those and she actually does quite a useful and real job. It just took me years to work out what it was...
