Do you think they will restrict me to a 30 minute nap or my usual full hour?

I forgot to ask during the interview.

@Joe Nation,
That's great news, Joe!
Good luck! I really hope you like the job.
And I hope it doesn't interfere with your running! Wink

This is going to take a bit of adjusting on your part. You'll probably feel quite stuffed for a bit as you get used to a work routine again.
Is it OK to ask what sort of job this is?

@Joe Nation,
Congratulations!
You'd be an asset to any company, so I hope they treat you accordingly.
Get a second cup of coffee just before nap time - good luck!

Love you, J.

Now then: keep being yourself.
This of course may not be advisable, but you already understand all of it..
even if being temperate, stay selved.

My favoritist interview ever had the laboratory owner and I going off on what was happening in Nicaragua - his daughter was there. Not to say I was hired for my politics, I was hired for my rather good creds at the time, well, you know, JN, but those were disposed of in discussion after less than five minutes. He stayed a friend until his death. His business partner was of opposite politics but then that guy and I used to taunt each other happily. Good that my work was fine.
I left, but remember that place well.

Happy for you.
Jo

@Joe Nation,
Awesome plan - don't let it interfere with the running (though it may for the first tiny bit).

Break a pinky!

Congrats, JN. Good to know that maybe I have a chance yet. It's been more'n two years in my case and I don't like being "semi-retired" (which is what I tell everyone I am Smile).

I'm kvelling for you (not painful).

Good luck. You might want to start small with the nap and build up. Not sure I should be offering advice. I haven't worked outside my home for many years.

You'll be great.

Wonderful news!

May come as a shock to the system, though!

Report back.

If u r going to nap under your desk,
remember to choose the wooden kind (not glass). Good Luck!

Use a silent alarm clock (no ticking nor tocking).

W00t! Congrats! My own transition involved getting up a lil earlier each day before I started, getting lunch ideas together, buying a T pass and generally doing a buncha stuff that I knew I wouldn't have the time to later.

And then I napped.

Go get 'em! Smile
