Best Title for Being Retired?

The LinkedIn thread got me thinking (I haven't been on LinkedIn for a few years now) about "titles". I have seen some fairly amusing titles people have used in lieu of the plain 'ole boring "retired". Such as "Personal Wealth Advisor".

What are some titles that you have heard/used that are entertaining?

I think I am going to be the Founder/CEO of the Life of Leisure Institute.

I periodically tell people that I'm the Executive Vice President of Vandelay Industries. Just to see if they get the Seinfeld reference.

I have a T-shirt for Vandelay Industries. Every now and then, I will get a grin when I am out and about it public. I also have a "Penske" file I will walk around with at w*rk when I want to look busy!

Since I have stopped working I feel like my status should be called "ReEngergized". 'Tired' has nothing to do with it.

I just used "consultant." Maybe I should change it to something else (boobie inspector, 5 star resort mystery shopper, etc.), since 9 months later I am about to start a consulting gig.
