Kinda good news kinda not.
Got a phone call from another possible employer.
Here's the thing. 
1.  I applied to job "G" and accepted offer, and am waiting for background checks to pass, and I think they should.
2.  At same time as #1, I kept talking to employer "L" and was pursuing possible job there.  Now they are calling me for this Thursday for interview.


It would sound cool, except,  honestly it is very nerve wracking.
Both jobs needs same level of background check, and if employer G can't pass me, neither will employer L. And I can't be employed in both places since both are competitors .

Sounds like I need to preemptively stop one job path to make this work.  But thing is, I do not officially have either job.  I just have a piece of paper that says employer G will hire me pending good outcome of background checks.

Maybe I do interview with employer L anyway and see what happens?
If at first you don't succeed, you have the diode backwards, again! -- Me.

It would seem that I've earned another Certificate of Merit. That's the word from headquarters anyway. To be announced officially in CAP News. This also suggests they're returning to a monthly newspaper format again. They call me "Colonel Coyote" behind my back btw.
