The way I figure it, the only reason to grow up is so you can afford to buy yourself all the crap your parents wouldn't buy you when you were a kid.

Here's something that's making the rounds today at work: Money Magazine's "Best Jobs in America" list. Top job: software engineer.

What grabbed our attention was technical writer (#13) and and editor (#19).

Per the magazine, the criteria include, among others: pay (duh); projected growth; stress level; creativity; and job flexibility.

Nice to know that one has what's considered to be a good job.
