I have some kind of a job! woot, as I believe the kids say nowadays. (if not, don't disillusion me).
I am now adjunct faculty at an American University. Disconcertingly this mean that they call me a Professor. In the UK that means you are distinguished, important, and generally over 50. Apparently in the US system it simply means that you are teaching in a university?
All good news however. And more than makes up for the rather limp 1-1 with United last night.
Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts and multifarious good luck messages.
