to make a short story a wee bit longer
Having already given away the punch line yesterday, I won’t bother to regale you with too many interview details. You know, like, details about how the moment I walked through the elevator doors I knew I’d want to work there. And how when the Pres showed me my future, Fifth Avenue corner office, I was even more convinced. And how I have been completely unable to relax since the moment he said, “I’d like to offer you the job…”
I squealed through three (or was it four?) really tasty martinis with Krissa, not stopping to realize that my nervous stomach was also a completely empty stomach. I hadn’t eaten a single bite all day. To our rescue came the uber cute bartender with Chinese delivery. Really good Chinese delivery.
I spent all Monday night not sleeping. And would have spent last night in the same fashion – tossing and turning, my brain focused on the phrase, “You’ve just changed your whole god damn life, you silly girl.” – except for multiple strawberry daiquiris with the RSF over a nice, “Congratulations” dinner. A Tylenol PM later, and I was out like a light.
My list of things to accomplish within the next three weeks is relatively short. Sublet my apartment in Boston. Find an apartment in New York. Move. You know, easy stuff. Totally doable, right?

Hey Fish.. Excellent Job - Congrats to you!
if you start writing this fabulous blog from new york city, does that make you a carriebradshawite?
mister N, carrie bradshaw? is a krissa/heatherite. not the other way AROUND.
Congratulations! Welcome to the City.
you have SO much help there. youll be fine. im SO excited for you!
Congratulations on the new job....Since I moved to Boston I struggled with the whole, NYC or Boston question over and over and in the end I totally wussed out and never moved to the big-big city. I will be living vicariously through you. Good luck!
(forgive my confusion). sublet? this move isn't permanent?
Yes, it's permanent. but I have a lease that someone needs to take over. It ends in August. I believe that's called a sublet... no?
