Squee! I got the job! I got the job! I'm going to be an Editor for the Office of the Legislative Counsel of the State of Georgia!

I'm gonna get paid to be a Grammar Nazi, with full health benefits and everything! And I'll actually be doing something that I consider worthwhile, making legalese more accessible to lay people. Plus, I'll be working with terracinque, who's the wonderful-fabulous-awesome person who recommended me for the position in the first place!

Happy dancing in the streets!! I'll be working in the beautiful Georgia State Capitol building. When I went in on Wednesday for the test/interview, I was ga-ga to wander around the place to soak in the ambiance. Rose marble! Sweeping staircases! Ancient, dark-wood furniture! Writerly inspiration galore!

I'm going to celebrate by buying a new pair of shoes.

Don't you mean "legalese"?

I'll be working with terracinque,

Beth told me that when she recommended your hiring to Sewell, our big boss, she told him "the only thing that gives me pause about her is that she's apparently really excited about working with Glenn."

Rose marble? Health benefits? The ability to annihilate bad grammar with a single DELETE stroke?

That's fantastic.
Congratulations.


You will be amazing.
