    Romancing the Job

    I think everyone who loves their job has to have a certain almost romantic flair for what they do.  Some jobs just sell themselves as fun, but when you have certain jobs most people would say were boring you really have to love what you do.  For example, I'm an engineer...

    I love what I do and
