Ooooh! I went through my inbox at the office and I’m getting a whole YEAR’S sabbatical from July 2007 through June 2008! Isn’t that totally awesome? I applied for a full year, and of course I deserve it, but I honestly only thought I’d get a semester. I’m so glad I applied for more than I thought I’d get! Let that be a lesson to me.

I have a big exciting project (that I’ll blog about soon) that I had hoped to do during my sabbatical, but that it turns out has to be finished in September 2007. So now I’ll get to figure out something really good to spend my year on after that. I think I’d like to pick up the distributed narrative things and do that properly.

I reckon I can live with another year of this head of departmenting (which I do enjoy at times, though certainly not at other times; I had no idea, the drudgery) knowing I’ll have a whole year with no meetings or teaching ahead of me. Yippee!!!
