>My department voted unanimously to promote me and give me tenure! And rumor has it that unanimous votes in my department are a rarity. Wow — cool!

But now I must knock wood — KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK — because there are all the other levels my dossier must still go through.

  1. >That is so awesome! And yes, you still have miles to go before you sleep and all that jazz, but you should be *really really proud* that you did so well at the department level! Yay Virago!

  2. >Great news! The unanimous thing is surely a big deal–if someone higher up tries to stop you, then the department rallies around you. The obviousness of this is enough to stop most higher-ups from doing something stupid.
