Some people have said there are no "dream jobs," and I don't know if I
agree with that. Depends on your dream, I guess. But if your idea of a
dream job is spending the entire day doing exactly what you love doing,
and *never* doing anything boring or uninteresting, I agree you'll be
very hard-pressed to find it (particularly while working for someone
else). You'll probably be happier in the long run if you can change that
expectation.

Instead of giving up on this job, why not try to make it more like the
job you thought it was? You say you've had some success getting projects
by complaining to your manager. Try it again, but change your tactics
from complaining to proposing. If you want to write something, find
something that needs to be written. If you want to do different kinds of
web work, make a proposal.

And when you get really bored, balance your checkbook with a big grin on
your face. ;-)
