Tenure Pool Party
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:34:36 PM »
Not sure where to post this, but I think it might be both my first post in the new fora and the first pool party in the new fora. And I know others usually throw the party, but dammit, getting to this point was long, hard, and not pretty, so I'm throwing my own.

Cause I finally got tenure!

Come on in and join me.

YAAAHHOO!

At last.

Very glad for you.

Would you like an antipasto plate, Cobb salad, or 《salad paysanne》to go with that sparkling cider in your goblet?

And the warm fluffy towels are coming off the fax machine now.

Congrats!

Ooh, antipasto and then toblerone and the fizzy alcohol the whole time. Thank you.

Congratulations, Reener! May you enjoy your tenure and use it wisely.

Is this a tenure-specific pool party or are other promotions celebrated at this pool as well?

Congrats!  The big bowl of fuzzy kittens for cuddling will be arriving soon.
And how is that working out for you?

Tell us what you're celebrating and we'll start a Clubhouse party for you, too!

Yay Reener!!  I brought skewered goodies - and the grill will be hot enough to start cooking in just a minute.

Did the HE and the Immoral Porpoises migrate over here yet?

I hope so. Think of the havoc they’d wreak with no one to herd them.

I think the HE is under the towels on the fax machine, asleep.

Should we migrate the pool and the porpoises now? Or check to be sure they're not busy at someone else's party on the old thread, still?

Or....wait......I think there's a canal between the new and the old clubhouses....they're swimming this way now.

Perhaps an ability to bilocate goes along with being immoral.....

After two consecutive promotion attempts, a successful grievance on the first attempt that took over a year to resolve, and a fired Dean, I will be officially promoted to Full September 1st. If this saga was a fiction novel, no one would believe it.
