the packet has landed . . .

in the appropriate departmental office.

Let the Tenure and Promotion Review begin.

As a graduate school mentor would say anytime I submitted anything for review, "It's in the abyss." Indeed, it is. I have to let it go.

I did the best I could.

Now I have to start to forget about it.

I need to focus on work.

i feel terrible about it, but . . .

I just had to.

I had to "Mark All as Read" the 1000+ new blog posts in my Bloglines account.

I want to read all of your posts. I truly do. I just got so behind. And y'all kept writing. And I kept getting behind. And the boldface print indicating blogs with new posts, and the number of new posts, started to give me tummy-aches.

I'm so sorry.

I'll try to catch up at all the moments I can.

Not that you won't learn a bit about me from the Personality Type Test that's been going around.

I've always fancied myself to be quite like Mary the Virgin Mother of Jesus.

. . . so there's no better time than now to see what's up over at Go Fug Yourself.

And I have to agree with Jessica. How in the hellie is this Gwynnie?


How is this possible?

i sincerely hope this is right

More to disclose later.

You Are The Wheel of Fortune

You represent the cycles of life, death, and rebirth.
You embrace change, the the ups and downs of life.
Fate is something you accept, even when you could possibly change things.
Big things tend to happen to you more than other people.

Your fortune:

Something huge is about to happen in your life, and you have little control over it.
You must accept your destiny, but luckily it is good fortune that has come your way.
Big things and big changes are about to come your way.
And while things will be intense for a while, they will be followed by a period of rest.

hey, what happened to my hotness?

I know I really shouldn't care, but I do.

The chili pepper I had on ratemyprofessors.com is gone.

It was there, I swear, for nearly five years!

One out of my six raters thought I was hot.

I guess now I'm not.

Just like hotness itself, so does the chili pepper disappear with time

In the eyes of the twenty-somethings.

Oh, the eyes of the twenty-somethings.
