I have:

  • An offer of a college place to accompany my faculty place: I will be at Linacre, which was my first choice for not much more reason than: it's a graduate college, it has a pretty building, and it's on the correct side of town.
  • A scary financial guarantee form which [livejournal.com profile] smiorgan is going to have to complete to assure them that he's going to be housing and feeding me.
  • A sneaking suspicion that the combination of the Women's Studies course and the financial-guarantee-from-husband is rather ironic.

I think if you make [livejournal.com profile] smiorgan wear a skirt while he completes the guarantee, you'll probably be ok.

Not when you're around, no.

(Oh, shit.)

it's also a choice by a man

If you've left him any choice, You're Doing It Wrong.

I think you should submit a full scholarship application on that basis!

But in 30 years time, Professor [livejournal.com profile] triskellian can write a witty piece on the ironic nature of it all in the Oxford Magazine.

Linacre is just up the road from my work. We will have to do lunch! It's also very handy for nice walks in the Parks and Mesopotamia.

Woo! And you'll have to come knitting in Blackwells on Wednesdays, of course; we don't get very long in everyone's lunch break but it's definitely A Good Thing anyway.

Ironic? Yes, but

Given that 40 years ago my mother was supporting my dad through his post-graduate qualification, only to be told once he'd got through it and got a job that he didn't want his wife working, I still see some movement.
