Cracklin' Rose

It's finally time to let slip the news: I will have a new position this fall at The College of St. Rose in Albany, NY -- Go, Golden Knights! It's a small liberal arts college in an urban setting. The English department seems welcoming and flexible. I'll have many more opportunities to teach courses in medieval literature and culture than I do at present (and to smaller classes!) We're very excited about the opportunity to be back in the Northeast (and near family and friends), but it's hard not to be a little sad to leave the many friends we have made in Houston (not to mention the plethora of restaurants!). I will miss my UHD students, but not the weather or the 4/4 load. We'll probably be heading back across country in June or July at the latest, so be prepared for that knock on the door!

You can't knock on the door, 'cuz it's already open!

Thanks -- now, if only we can find a wonderful house like yours!

Oh, and the title of this post is a nod to Shane, not Neil.

I think for the first game we should go for the more formal flamingoes and hedgehogs. Black tie and boaters will also be required! I'm working on the finger foods now...

And by the by, check out the patron saint for which St. Rose is named. Guess I better take up needlepoint -- ha ha!
