Dreamland plaudits

I was pretty disappointed to wake up this morning.  I dreamed that I had won a Nobel Prize — it might have been for Peace, but the exact category was actually a bone of contention that never got worked out.  I was pretty well pleased, as you might imagine, but my strongest thought before waking was, "Wow, this will TOTALLY enhance my job prospects for a tenure-track position!  I can't wait to add this line to my CV!"

I think I deserve some respect for not letting the worldwide fame go to my head, don't you?


  1. Academe fucks with our priorities. Like when I fell down a staircase the other day and my first thought was not for life nor limb, but for the laptop I was carrying and its un-backed-up hard drive. We're basically doomed.

    But congratulations on your award!

  2. Congratulations! I'm guessing it was the all around award, like they give in Olympic gymnastics.
