My boring yet cushy job was due to expire at the end of 2009. And I really have no idea what I'm going to do when its done. My resume is a little shoddy and I may well have to take another entry level job in my 40s, which is not the worst thing in the world, but still far from ideal.
But yesterday (caloo calay!) we got the news that my job will likely last five years longer than expected. Woo hoo! So, assuming my boss stays healthy (knock wood), I'll be safe 'til 2015 and, let's be frank, the Earth will almost certainly be destroyed by a rogue asteroid or vengeful Aztec gods by then.
