7 FOR me making progress towards promotion and tenure. 2 not.* YAY!!!! This is the first positive vote I have ever gotten. There was even mention that it is likely that I am the *best* researcher in the department. Still some moaning and groaning about my teaching evaluations that are in the 'good' to 'very good' range (opposed to 'very good' to 'excellent'), but overall, people are ready to give me tenure. AND nobody made a motion to have me fired (like they did last year, where THREE people supported that plan). Whew. What a freaking relief!
You guys rock at the good thought delivery. I owe ya big time.
*(The two NOs are dudes that I bowed up against years ago and they are not. letting. it. go.)
