If you could have any job, what would it be?

Up until some time in high school I wanted to be a veterinarian. It was herd check day and I realized I didn't want to be doing pregnancy tests on cows for a living. Since then, I've never really figured out what I want to be when I grow up.
My dream job would have the following features:
- An office with a window and ability to work mostly by myself
- Spreadsheets and statistical analysis
- Writing, not standard operating procedures or manuals, but non-fiction
- The ability to spend the day following threads through the internet
- Freedom to make my own hours
- A fun group of co-workers
- Not in academia
- Relatively free of politics
- Technical, even though I would likely be on the sidelines of the technology
- Likely at a small to medium-sized business
- Projects sufficiently detailed that the end is visible, but still allows for plenty of creativity
