You call that a job?

Imagine waking up to a fresh island breeze, as the sun peaks through the blinds. You stroll the white sands or snorkel the Great Barrier reef. After lunch you post an update on your blog with a few pics for the envious people back home, as you twist your toes in the warm sand. Maybe you'll go exploring later, or maybe you'll just sit here and enjoy the island life a little while longer. The best part, you get paid to do this every day, a measly $105,000.

This is an actual job offered by Australia to boost tourism. The successful applicant "must be a good swimmer, excellent communicator and be able to speak and write English." They are touting this as the "best job in the world". So, what do you think? What would be your "best job in the world"?

Best job in the world...besided the one I have...A youth ministry consultant. I would get paid to give my opinion.

Um, I think I'd love to be a personal shopper. All the satisfaction of shopping without spending my own money sounds like fun, right?

I would like this job for a couple weeks and then I would want something more to do I think. I like to see results!
The best job in the world is the one I have right now! I love the work, who I work for, and who I work with!

clearly the best job would be reigning as the head of a multi-billion-dollar company..... while secretly funding a superheroic team that you lead... thwarting evil, high-fiving fellow heroes, using wicked cool weapons & gadgets, traveling everywhere in the team jet, looking totally awesome in toy form... etc etc

ok, geek-out moment over
