What’s a good Valentine’s Day in Cheapskate-Intellectual-land?

a) The IRS direct-deposited my income-tax refund, first thing this morning.  One chunk goes straight back to savings.  Another chunk goes to bills (including my accountant, because of whom I have this money in the first place.) Maybe the rest can go to a new rug for my living room, to replace the old, now-frayed one that was here when I moved into this house. But only if it’s on sale.

b) I received official confirmation that our college’s Board of Regents has confirmed the vote of my colleagues and my dean — I’m being tenured and promoted, effective this August.  The best part of all has been the warm congratulations from family, friends, colleagues, and students. Thanks, y’all.

    While I’m sure you believe you affected my life in only the most superficial ways, I assure you, you have done far more than that. I doubt that I will ever become a writer; however, I no longer doubt the power that writing has in my life. I owe this completely to you. It may seem insignificant to you… It is not to me.
