I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

A life-long curiosity drives my interests ranging from creative writing, photo-editing, music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment What's a synonym for “ready to ship”
"Ship on demand"? What are you trying to say - that the merchant does not have to wait on the order to ship and that once the order is placed, it is shipped immediately?

comment What are these vehicles called in the United States?
The third picture could be called a mini-van or a conversion van, depending on the size and customization. Delivery van is also used if the vehicle has a company logo painted on it.

comment Usage of “I'm incredulous!” as an exclamation of shock or disbelief
"Well flip me over and paint me blue!", "You could knock me over with a feather!" are other less formal, yet quite verbose expressions. :-)

comment Less formal synonym for “Confirmed”, “Acknowledged”

comment Can I say “thousands of <something>” to make it sound more dramatic when it's actually “a thousand and a half”?
+1 for "well over $1,000". If I was going to do the bragging, I'd go with that option! :-)

comment Arrogancy vs. Humility
If I was a witness to the event, I might be apt to think the person was taken down a peg or two but if I was the arrogant person, I can't say I would think that about myself.

comment Arrogancy vs. Humility
That's a good expression - but does it describe the state of mind of the arrogant person or is that a judgment of the onlookers - that the arrogant person was brought down a peg or two?

comment Which is the more appropriate word to use “stupidity” or “idiocy” in a medical context
Even "handicap" is avoided these days. I'd probably use "mental impairment".

comment Which is the more appropriate word to use “stupidity” or “idiocy” in a medical context
Idiocy - based on your definition - probably wouldn't really fit a situation where mental and cognitive problems are brought on by a virus.

Not to mention that "everyday" and "every day" have different meanings.

comment Alternative to “thankful for”
Thank goodness there is ALWAYS a better way to write a sentence - otherwise we wouldn't have the abundance of literature that exists for our knowledge and pleasure! :-)
