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.

I'm driven by a life-long curiosity about the world and people around me. My passions range from creative writing, photo-editing, performing and listening to 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 Name for people who cannot pronounce one particular sound
If we have to go with the OP's example, I'm not sure I'd consider someone who couldn't roll their R's as having a speech impediment, but if we're talking in generalities, I'll agree this is a good choice. +1.

comment Why do we have two words to describe post-mortem medical examination?
I always saw the distinction as the same reason that humans are not spayed/neutered - we're sterilized or have our tubes tied or have a vasectomy...humans seem to need to differentiate ourselves from (other) animals.

comment Is there a literary/rhetorical term for the purposeful elision of the doer (human or otherwise) of an action in a sentence?
Your example is not exactly an elision of the doer, IMO - it's more of a literal replacement with the action ("went and threw itself out") being directly attributed to the gift.
