Living the dream
The thing about living the dream is that it can be intense, and the 40 hours a week mentioned in the hypothetical contract most likely refers to cat hours. (You know, like cat years, they last much longer than human hours).
The other thing about living the dream is that, after three years of working towards it, I wouldn't even think about complaining.
But sadly it does mean that blogging may be very sparse and sporadic over the next couple of months or so. I'm afraid you'll have to improve your own lives.
But while you wait, now would be a very good time to air any views about what your ideal coffee bar would be like. And if you're lucky, I might just listen.
