Alex, I can't remember exact context in which I was befuddled, but what do you think about these:

1. People who (follow through?) consistently get things done.
2. (Doers?) consistently get things done.
3. (Productive?) people consistently get things done.

Oh, and if I may make an adscititious statement, you didn't seriously consider my post in the sabrage thread, did you?

Hogwash is very serious business. After all, the points don't matter and everybody wins. But I have a sneaking suspicion that you voted for one of the fake definitions. But it is an interesting one though.

How would you describe a person who consistently gets things done? - a dictator, since they usually have others do it ;).

Yes,nharrens first post leaves that possibility open.
I wonder though, how consistently Alex Williams is brushing up his poetry to get the HW finals consistently done.

How about factotum? From Latin roots fac, imperative of facere, to do + totum, neut. of totus, all, the whole. A person hired to to all sorts of work, or a handy man [Webster's}.

She about 5'4", brunette, I guess maybe 115 lbs. She dresses well, but not overly professional; on Fridays she wears jeans that accentuate her curves & make me drool. She works in the office two doors down from mine, and I always hear the Supervisors complimenting her on her timely and high-quality work. She make me sick.
