What's it like to be a flight attendant? (Present day.)

Watching Pan Am (new show about flying in the '60s) has me curious about what it's like to be a flight attendent today. I know there are a lot of sites out there detailing this, but I always appreciate the Hive Mind perspective. Are you a flight attendant? Do you know a flight attendant? Here's what I'm curious about:
a) What's the training like?
b) Did you have any flying fear before or even during your tenure as a flight attendant?
c) What's an average week like?
d) If you're female, what kind of sexism or stereotypes do you find yourself facing? (Same question could be applied to males, actually.)
