Rainbows & Puppies

Well, we have a verbal offer from the job place.

I will be going to work as a Violent Crimes Analyst for the gov. What that means is that I will be gathering data from violent crime scenes; fun stuff like homicide, suicide, gunshot wounds, sexual violence, bioterrorism and the like, then analyzing it in the context of surveillance and prevention on a national level. Basically CSI, America.

Its a life of rainbows and puppies for me! :)

I will move to Atlanta in May.

Suzy, I think it will be fascinating but I'm not sure how much people will be interested in hearing about the dark side.

I'm sure some aspects will be disturbing, Sorted, but hopefully we will help prevent some of the nastiness that happens everyday.

Oh my... Atlanta is the place that nearly did John Douglas in. In another life that would have been my career of choice. I'm in awe.
