Seer of ghosts & weaver of stories

On the bright side, we have this:
Washington state has passed an expanded version of its domestic-partnership law. And there was much rejoicing!

And my Ph.D. is pretty much finished. Of course, this means the real fun of last-minute expansion and revision in the lead-up to January submission begins, but least it's functionally finished.

Congratulations on finishing! This would be a good opportunity to celebrate with wine. :)

There is one in the kitchen with my name on it.

Conrgratulations :D And best of luck for the editing process :)

Haaah, yeah. That will probably be another story ;) My supervision is on the 13th, so we'll hear what Linne and Derek think then...

Hurrah for functional finishing!

You can not answer this if you want, or answer it privately, or forget I even asked, but can I ask you whether you're on the job market this year?

(I am.)

In theory, yes, I am - but I'm not going to MLA this year, so I suppose you could say I'm on the indie job market rather than the institutionalized one...

Why do people not like to answer that question? It confuses me. It's not like you hurt other people's chances by admitting you're job-hunting!

I know I personally am worried about keeping all my friends through this year. I know so many awesome geeky medievalists, and we should all get jobs and be a new young cohort of awesome geeky junior professors! But, well, when so many of us are directly competing for the same, extremely limited list of jobs, it gets really complicated sometimes. Anyway. Good luck!

To be honest, I really think I'm going to be focusing on the UK market. At least for now! So I suppose we're not really in competition at all :)

Congrats on getting the PhD done. The worst is now over!

YAY YOU!! Congratulations, oh god, that's so exciting!! :D

I hope so. The date of my supervision where all this gets discussed is 13 November - which is a Friday, of course ;)

Congratulations; I'm happy for you!

RE earlier post: Failtastic = USA most of the time.

CONGRATS!!! Celebrate, seriously!

Alas, true. Our country has mastered teh fail.

So far, I have not really managed to do that. But I'm working on it!

And my Ph.D. is pretty much finished.

That's huge. Congratulations!

Month-and-a-half of hardcore editing, here I come. But not now ;)

Congratulations on pretty-much-finishing the Ph.D.!

As for the Referendum 71 outcome, it's not officially confirmed that enough people voted Approve, but they're anticipating it based on the results so far. There's still votes that need to be counted.

I turned 18 last month, so I voted by absentee ballot a few weeks ago. If it turns out to be true that the expanded domestic partnership law passed, I will be proud to say I helped achieve the victory.

As well you should be :)

Congratulations!!! That's awesome news.

Indeed. Although now I have to deal with visa-renewal paperwork :-P

Although I still need to find a suitable way to celebrate.

Many congratulations on the functionally finishing.

Congratulations! That's got to be such an amazing feeling.

Satisfying, anyway. Now, finishing the edits, whatever I'm told they should be, that will be amazing ;)

Functionally finished! Congratulations! *internet glasses of wine*

That's the best kind at the moment, seeing as my stomach has decided this week it doesn't like booze. I hate this on-again, off-again thing I'm developing in my old age :-P

On both accounts, wonderful!

Congratulations! And you have a nice long lead up! Well done. I'm planning on submitting in December, and still have to finish a few pieces....
