Are you actually a porn theatre janitor? Previously, didn't you say you were working for NASA?

Man jobs!

I often work around blokey foul-mouthed construction workers and dirty drillers. I sometimes dig holes in the ground and get sweaty. I also do lots of dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) tests - sometimes in conjunction with digging holes. Now that's what I call manly! On the other hand I also spend a fair amount of time on computers and generally being pedantic with calculations and spreadsheets so that balances it out a bit.

I just LOVE the idea that one doesn't exclude the other. It would be all kinds of awesome and explain a lot, too.

Ryan and Ghost:
Yes, there's a huge amount of awesome in my line of work, every sit is a sit, every row has its specific traits and a plastic cup of lemonade may include more than you'd expect. Art has different ways of revealing itself but, when the lights are finally on, the theatre is one brand new modern Pollock set of splashy art!
 
Let's just say that NASA has an interest in Porn and that life is a Theatre.

For the last year or so, I've been a student psychiatric nurse and part time carer for the elderly.

Previously, soldier, EHT, carer, naked model and farm labourer.

Some of those are manly? Maybe manly-lite.

Asclepius, naked model does not apply, my friend. Farm labourer does. Or elephant hygiene technician.

Yes, those elephants were a challenge. So many skin-folds.... I lost some good friends in there.
