Jack of All Trades I thought I was pretty broadly skilled with my work spanning software engineering, network and systems operations, some DBA-duties and variety of other do-it-cause-it-needs-to-be-done endeavors.

Well here's a something funny: Chef and Missile Treaty Compliance Inspector. Yea, this is an actual job that is posted right now:

Job Description: Responsible (sharing duties with one other chef) for the preparation of three daily meals (brunch & dinner only on Sundays) for approximately 20-25 personnel at remote, self-contained site in Russia. Duties include menu planning, food ordering & resupply, inventory management, kitchen maintenance and sanitation and catering support to infrequent special functions on and offsite. As treaty monitor, may occasionally operate the On-Site Continuous Monitoring System in accordance with official START treaty missile inspections at Votkinsk.
Where can you sign up? HotJobs (what do you mean by "hot"?). I took the liberty of mirroring the job ad, since I'm not really familiar with the lifecycle of job ads posted there. I thought it was good enough to keep!

If that's not your cup-of-tea, Technorati has some great jobs open right now. Most of them don't even require you to

walk, cross-country ski, or walk with snowshoes, a distance of 2.5 - 3 miles without rest in all seasons, including winter temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit
shoveling sidewalks and building entrances and digging out snow around satellite dish area and other equipment
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
