the powers that be called last night
My dad accepted an offer from Arizona State University to be the Associate Dean of Architecture and Environmental Design. For the past 22 years, he's been a professor of landscape architecture and design at K-State. He goes on contract with ASU July 1. Shizers! If I'm still jobless come the end of July/beginning of August, when we'd probably be moving, I'll go with my parents to the Tempe/Phoenix area. This is a fabulous opportunity for him; the president of the university is fairly new and according to Metro | AZ, the Phoenix city mag, he has 'freed up money to attract more academic stars and raise the university's 'intellectual energy.'" My dad, the academic star.

keeping in tune with the other soundtrack post
Each year while in college, I compiled a soundtrack. The songs were ones that marked the year; each fits one of the following criteria: describes something that happened, heard a bunch on the radio, brought up in conversation often, saw band in concert, danced to with Alpha Chi. Here are the yearly soundtracks (I've omitted any incriminating songs):
