I didn't bother mentioning the interview because I thought I didn't have a hope in hell of getting it- I was just doing it for the experience. It looks like I aced the interview, though.

A new job is mine. Have a drink and pretend I bought it for you.

I'll have that extremely expensive Tokaji you were getting for your birthday, thanks. :beer:

What's the job?

Risk Analyst.

That's what I already do, but this is a much broader remit and a bigger role. And a rather handy five grand pay rise.

I guess his job is "so if I roll a 4 and a 3 and he rolls a 5 and a 4 I could lose Irkutsk! Too dangerous!"

So what you're saying is it's riskier...

A Riskier Analyst?

Congrats!:beer:

That's not fixed yet- but I'm replacing someone going on maternity leave, so I'd guess within the next 2 months.

Congrats. :beer:

I just hope that, being maternity leave, it's not a temporary 12 month job and you get kicked out in a year when she returns. Like happens a bit here.

I also got a new job today, but my title is not as exciting as that of a board game analyst

Your move, chump

Fortunately it's a department expected to expand. The whole financial services sector is under very close scrutiny following the banking collapse, and as this job involves trying to stop my employer from doing illegal, unethical or just plain stupid things with large sums of money, it's a growth area right now.

Btw, I've always found the safest investment is to be buying beer.

anyway, replacing a pregnant female with a snipped male, that sounds sound and wise riskwise

No, Japher...he will be in indulging in risky anal. Diseased cocks ahoy!

Anyway, congratulations on the new job!

Best things happen when you don't give a fuck. Also when you pursue them with mania.
