New Dream Job

I started this post last week before moving and before I disconnected my computer ....

I think this is my new dream job. It consists of people sending in relics that are somehow associated with a family story or some historically significant event. Then, this group of investigators start to undig the whole story. They travel all over the U.S. trying to track down exactly what the origins of the relic are and how, if at all, it relates to the person who submitted it.

It would be the perfect job for anyone who likes history and travel (2 of my hobbies). Of course, I'd have to have some sort of background in something like antiquities or history. Plus, it would give you the background to do some family investigation yourself. Maybe it's just the thought of traveling around the US on someone else's dime that I like. Either way, this is my new dream job to replace being the manager of a chocolate factory run by big breasted hookers ....

I agree -- it would be such a cool job! And I love that show! Haven't seen it in awhile, but I always get drawn right in. It's so interesting.

That sounds like a cool job and hopefully it would bring ya to London!

How can this job top your other dream job of "being the manager of a chocolate factory run by big breasted hookers ....".

Oooh, I've never watched that show. The premise is intriguing, but I can't say it'd be my dream job. I would love the travel part, but the history part...maybe not so much. History always put me to sleep, so if I was on the show it would simply be me traveling around the country asleep. Lower ratings I would think.

Elenamary-
It would be pretty cool. Any word on your big party in Columbus yet?

Mo-
It is addictive. It's sorta like Antique Roadshow .... I always get sucked into that one.

NML-
Are you kidding? I'd sweep floors in the subway if it would get me to London!!

Ruben-
I think the only difference is that the history job has a better 401K

Andi-
Aaaah, history was always one of my fave subjects. I always did well in those classes and still read non-fiction from time to time.

Cincy,
I loved history my junior year of college: hot prof that was interesting to boot. Had a dream about him last night as a matter of fact.
