GREAT NEWS!!!!

12:39 p.m. I just got fantastic news! The medical examiner's office where I live is hiring a part-time investigator and just called me to ask if I'd like to apply.

It's a minimum of 22 hours a week and I'd be working nights and weekends. The office is within walking distance of my house and it wouldn't interfere with my day job.

If it works out and they offer me the position, I can continue on as a supervisor for the company I now work for but I will cut out most of the surveillance work. I will have a foot in both pies. Er. Or a finger in both pies? Mmmm...pie.

Anyway, send me your good vibes, bloglit. I should know something within the next couple of weeks.

I'm going to go do a happy dance now.

Bye, y'all!

good luck, polly! Won't you miss the ice cream bucket and getting the cops called on you, though? Either way, that's some good pie!

errr... make sure your hands are gloved when sticking your fingers into some of those pies.

Hooray, Polly! That's so exciting!

Go-4-it, no relation to the small rodent.

btw - when you get your agent, are you going to write in the style you use here (factual, but names protected) or more like an Iris Johansen.

Woo hoo! Go for it, Polly. More stories to add to your repertoire.

Anonymous-2,

I think that I will continue to protect the identities of those I write about. I will need to be very careful about what I write, actually. I'll really have to think on that.

I don't want to change names and circumstances so much that the case is no longer recognizable, but I will need to be cognizent of ongoing investigations and to respect the privacy of those going through a death.

It will be tricky and I may not be able to write about certain cases right away, I think.

Good luck, Pol!


Damn, you ain't a bit afraid of hard work, are you?

Marie said...

All I can think of saying is "Yayyyyy!", which may not be very eloquent, but certainly describes how I'm happy for you, Polly. :-)

Eleanor said...

Hooray!

*fingers crossed*

You won't need luck, Polly, you have the talent and the qualifications (out the proverbial!).. it seems that your timing is great, too!

*sends vibes in direction of hiring guys/gals* You love Polly.. you need her to work for you.. you love Polly.. you need her to work for you... at double her current salary...
