many of you know, I am an English prof and have been in the tenure process the whole time I have been sick. well, I was told I would hear in March 2008 if I got tenure, and I was voted in this week! what a fabulous thanksgiving gift.
I am sure my intestines will be in far better shape now that THAT is over.
thanks for being here, yogaprof (with tenure! tongue )

Congrats on your early Christmas present!!!   What a relief that must be for you.  What university do you teach at?  (just curious - I work in the Registrar's office of Indiana University)

You go, girl!  I have a good book for your students to read.  Do they read creative non-fiction, travel writing?
