Worry about my referee's comments about potential jobs?

I've been offered Job A. Job B left a voicemail at the 11th hour today asking me to ring back on Mon. Based on what my referee told me at work drinks tonight, he thinks Job B is very likely to offer me a job. He said Job A were perfectly nice but felt like they were asking questions to catch me out, while Job B sounded like they wanted to hear nothing but good things about me, as though they *actually* wanted to employ me. Having said that, Job A is interstate so I don't know if they're just trying to make sure I'm not a dud. If I get offered Job B on Monday, would you make anything of what my referee mentioned? Could it be a reflection on them as people to work for? Thanks (and sorry I can't wait till Mon, it's been months and months of frustration and anxiety, to the point that keeping busy doesn't even work)

How to explain on cover letter I've just started a year off?

I started a year off a month ago to take some courses I've been interested in and do some travelling too. A PT position in my old industry has come up in the city I'll be studying in. This city is also the city I've always wanted to live in, which is why I'm making an exception to apply for this. How do I explain this year off on my cover letter? [more inside]

Am I ready to settle for such a long contract?

I was enquiring about a 2 year position and got a really refreshingly honest, detailed and enthusiastic response from the manager. In fact he was so convincing I am almost tempted to settle for it. However, given all the pros and cons, I'm wondering if a) I'm ready to settle or b) he's done a really good marketing job, or c) I'm just desperate because I'm in the middle of hunting for my next contract and haven't been successful so far.
