Ahem

ahem



I am in shock. Not exactly sure how I feel -- there's so much to think about. Sad and ecstatic all at once. I can now stop looking, if I like. Nothing in writing yet, and I have the weekend to think (and look over the holdins in the library so I can negotiate some purchases to make sure I can teach my classes ... but, yeah. Got to talk to the other places in the running, too, but I don't know that they can move fast enough to make me turn down a sure thing. Yay, SLAC!

YYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

La Lecturess said...

Hooray and congratulations! You deserve it.

The Bailiff said...

that is awesome ... yeah for you! any chance you'll reveal the general location of the SLAC?

New Kid on the Hallway said...

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

(Will go looking at other blogs for more details!!)

Another Damned Medievalist said...

Bailiff -- it is east of the Mississippi. That's all till I get the paperwork finished and know it's a hundred percent for real!

NK -- more to come, but I actually have 15 papers to grade by tomorrow! And I am feeling a little shell-shocked. But you can call me (e-mail me if you don't have my number, or P/H and B* have it). Wow.

Another Damned Medievalist said...

Oh, duh. Thqanks, everybody. Just excuse me while I go hide in a corner and assimilate all these new feelings. Shit. What do I tell my boss and the wonderful colleagues I have now? The committee here hasn't even met yet ...

George said...

Congratulations!

Tabitha Grimalkin said...

Yay!! Congrats!

Ianqui said...

Congrats! Great news!

Ralph Luker said...

Congratulations, ADM! There's more good news on its way -- eventually.

Jonathan Dresner said...

Fantastic. Absolutely.

Anonymous said...

Yay!!!! Does this make you Another Redeemed Medievalist?

Longtime lurker

timna said...

I am so thrilled! You are really a role model of persistence. And you'll be in a closer time zone!

Ancarett said...

ADM, super news! Re: other places where you're in the running -- if you really want them to have a chance to snag you, call and tell them that you have a T-T offer with a need to respond by early next week but, if there's anyway they could give you an offer in that timeframe, you'd love to accept it. If you want to pull out of upcoming interview, call now and tell the place that you have another offer. Otherwise, wait until your offer is in hand (in writing, signed, etc.) and tell the other locations that you've "accepted an offer elsewhere". (You may reveal to them, if you wish, that it's at SLAC, but it's not necessary.)

Caleb said...

Congrats!!

wolfa said...

Congratulations!

Kelly said...

Congratulations!

If there is one of the other places you would rather go to, do contact them to let them know about your offer. On the other hand, don't feel an obligation to do so. Everyone involved knew you were "on the market" and you're suffering from what Dean Dad has discussed in detail - the assumptions that non-full-time that are alredy working for an institution aren't leaving and so don't need to be woo'd.

It's hard not to take it all personallly but it does speak to institutional and bureacratical limitations more so that not wanting you.

Another Damned Medievalist said...

Wow! Thanks, everybody! And anonymous, I'd never really thought of the 'damned' in that way ... I always thought of it as in, 'one damned medievalist after another'!

Ralph -- I hope you'll be e-mailing me with the news!

Dr. Virago said...

Just wanted to add another YAY!!!!!!

Nathanael said...

Wonderful News! Congratulations

greythistle said...

Such good news! Yay!

Dr. Richard Scott Nokes said...

Huzzah!

Pilgrim/Heretic said...

you ROCK!! Congratulations!! I'd second (third?) Ancarett's and Kelly's advice about nudging the other places you're interested in - that's totally fair game.

Way to go!

Rebecca said...

Yay! Hurrah for employment!!!

Sharon said...

Fantastic news!

jim said...

Add my congrats. I'm very happy for you.

Jane Dark said...

Das ist sehr ausgezeichnet!

I can't wait to hear more.

timna said...

This really is so exciting. I'm so glad that you've gotten an offer!
(I know, I said this this morning, but I didn't mean it was only about persistence!)

cheers all around!

Cheeky Prof said...

Aaaaaaargh! Congrats! What great news!

(Guess I'd better get on that email reply, eh?) ;-)

What Now? said...

ADM -- Fabulous news! Congratulations. After the year you've had, you soooo deserve good news like this!

Another Damned Medievalist said...

Cheeky -- no worries! The job is not the one in the NE, which was a really cool CC. This is a 4-year also East of the Mississippi, but not as east and not as north ;-) Yer off the hook!

Another Damned Medievalist said...

Oh -- WN?? My year has not been nearly as awful as yours, so if I deserve it, then you should be expecting showers of goodness!

jo(e) said...

Oh, congrats!

Steve Muhlberger said...

When you finally decide what to do and it's all nailed down, do announce this in propria persona on Mediev-l.

BrightStar said...

yay yay yay yay yay yay YAY! woo hoo! This is great news.

Overread said...

Woohoo!! Congrats!

Miriam said...

Excellent!

MaggieMay said...

Alison said...
