I got the Job

Qatar Petroleum is arranging for me to fly out this weekend. This seems to be their way of telling me I got the job. A university in Doha.

I have been out of work for eight months, so that is good.

Think I oughta change my user name?

I suggest “In The Qatar.”

Congrats, Paul!



Hurrah! I am so pleased for you!

Well done! Welcome back (soon) to the Gulf!

Have you been to Doha? It does a good job earning its reputation as the dullest place in the Gulf. Its nicer than the rat race of Dubai in some regards, but it may come as a bit of a shock. Have fun!

But we’ve got Krispy Kreme, which is a great consolation to us.

Congratulations, Paul!


Paul in Saudi, I wish you the best. Now, go get 'em!

I’m starting a job in Abu Dhabi pretty soon. Maybe someone should organize a dopefest :smiley:

Congratulations. Wishing you joy and success in your new career.

Congratulations! :slight_smile:

Not sure what you see in Qatar. Or what you saw in Saudi that I didn’t. Still, it seems to be what you want, so congratulations to you! We had no doubts you would get it.

Congratulations, and W00t!!1111!!

Or whatever one says in Arabic.


This made me YOL… Yay! Out Loud.:smiley:


glad to hear it, Paul. How about Paul of Arabia as a new, all-inclusive moniker?

Congratulations! :smiley:

Hookers and booze?


Congratulations Paul.

good on ya
