Making me happy today is the following (redacted) email:

Dear Dr (Zengum),

You have successfully completed your probation period and are now confirmed in position of (General Smartass) in (Miscellaneous Academics Division) until 31-DEC-2049.


Effectively, tenure, so long as I keep working and don't screw up (or one of my students).

Should I tell them I hope to retire before I'm 77?

Now, Wolf, hurry up and get that job you mentioned so I don't feel bad about being happy about this.
