A little nervous. Lots of things to learn and a different environment. Gotta find a place to live but I’m in the system at a senior level which is not easy anymore. Did exactly one interview. I expected this to be much harder. It was a brutal interview, tough, pointed questions that I was comfortable and conversant with but I expected to have to interview dozens of times and settle for something at half the pay. I did not expect to walk in at the top.
Appreciate the congrats, I’m a little stunned, nervous and excited
You will be fine.  You know better than most how to walk in, figure things out and roll!
When will you start?

Don’t know yet. I’d like to live in Arlington, rent a condo so you can walk to everything. Probably end up in Md.

I suspect some time in December.
Wow!  That’s fast!
Ask for January 15. 
Will they pay for you to move?
7:00pm Phil
Military pays for the move

Yeah, I want a three-story town home near the METRO with a fenced yard
Let me get out my magic wand…
