OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 17:45 And so consummatum est the last hour of my 19th semester teaching FYC as adjunct. Next year the holy land - or at least the Crusades! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 17:50 Refused to compromise my course with said donuts. Instead delivered the sweets of a favorite passage from Chr?tien:+ #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 17:55 Ah, what a valiant knight! How he lays his enemies low, and how fiercely he attacks them! He hurls himslef at them+ #mla12 .                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 18:00 like a lion among fallow deer when it is driven & tormented by hunger.& all our other knights are bolder & more spirited bc of him+ #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 18:05 for were it not for him alone, not a lance would have been broken or any sword drawn to strike.[And the most beautiful of epigrams]+ #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 18:10 When one finds a man of worth, he should be well loved and cherished (Chr?tien trans. by D.D.R. Owen of St. Andrews) #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 18:15 In 10 yrs teaching FYC reading the evals of novice writers, my lessons have been praised but what I love, Literature, never cherished #mla12

OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:05 <hug> to @literarychica who just seems like a nice person.                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:05 @savasavasava You are so sweet! I really feel like you know the secret of hugs. And after this semester, we could all use them, right?                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:10 <hug> and congrats to @whitneytrettien on your fellowship! Youre awesome!! #waytogo

OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:35 @surlyf Im not sure which one of us followed you or why, but your picture looks like you could use a  <hug>                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:36 @savasavasava I think Ive had that all this semester! And another one of #omla may have had it his whole life. *halipula* snds like a curse                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 20:41 @tmcphers <hugs> keep us going, but benefits keep us alive? Hugs & Benefits are best of all!                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 21:00 Wanted a group hug in adjunct office but no room for five-way hug. Does that tell you something about space allotment? #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 21:03 @surlyf Yeah, but we're adjuncts! So it works out!                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 21:05 Also wanted to send a &lt;hug&gt; to @cmleitch who gave a sweet shoutout of support.  #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 21:10 I want a We Are Not Contingent T-shirt so much! Stick an #omla paperclip on the collar. Please someone design one!  #mla12

OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 21:42 @rogerwhitson Tell it to @miriamkp.  Don't look at us.                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 22:05 In this institute for higher education, why must it be that we reach semester's end & still no teaching schedules for the adjuncts? #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 22:15 <limpid handshake> for the chair of this department who holds an online certificate in belittling adjunct faculty! #omla <bite thumb>                      
OccupyMLA 12/9/2011 22:45 <hug>; to @GeorgeOnline even though he gets so disappointed in us! #omla #mla12 That guy's like my dad.

OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 0:48 Sending a <hug> out to @triproftri who tried to chat with us but we snarked. Hope we can talk soon! #mla12 #omla You are a true reformer!                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 0:49 Signing off to get back to the mountain of portfolios.  Keep the <hugs> flowing! #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 4:05 A bit more time left on International Hug an Adjunct Day!  #mla12 #omla Tomorrow hugging might come off as creepy.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 4:46 <hug> for you @the_book_girl just for that RT! Hugging making me sleepy though.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 4:55 & as International Hug an Adjunct Day comes to a close, <hug> to you who reads these tweets closer than our students read for finals! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 13:45 A faintly remembered dream: marking essay exams on the chivalric romance instead of evaluating portfolios  #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 13:50 Students decorate their portfolio binders when they could be ornamenting their prose.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 13:55 In my 10 years at this position, the WPA has changed either the portfolio system or the rubric 7 of the 10 years.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 14:00 When you are not permitted to sit at the table that determines the curriculae, all decisions appear arbitrary and capricious. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:05 Hey, #omla compadres, big thanks for letting me run the Hug day yesterday.  Now what about #omlashirts, eh? I need funds to get to #mla12!                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:15 Huge grading day ahead of me.  Who else out there is in it? #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:25 Not that I'm procrastinating, but we need an #omla chant. How about "Upholding Justice, Truth, Honor, & Loyalty"? Cretien, I think :) #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:30 @elotroalex I'll explain this one to him.  He wouldn't get it.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:45 Can I say, I just love the hootsuite. The collaborative tweeting thing rocks. Okay, last tweet. Back to grading.  #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 15:55 Return to your grading and stop using the account for your rambling.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 16:55 n.b., the post arrived moments ago.  Received my first missive of rejection.  Not particularly surprising, R1, competitive.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 17:00 The Rejection: terse, generic, form letter for a post that was only moderately advantageous to my adjuncting.  Commence recycling.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 17:30 Sorry to hear about a rejection letter for one of #omla.  Its still early. And the best is yet to come! #MLA12 #omla                      
Hazel buys a suit for her interview                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:15 Okay this might not be big news but I found the perfect interview suit, charcoal gray just like @professorisin suggests. Simple but stylish.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:20 Its Nine West and marked down like crazy, tweed jacket, pencil skirt. Believe me this is the only nice suit Ive ever purchased.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:25 It was practically impossible to find something decent that wasnt shiny with a jacket that was the right length for me in the sleeves.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:30 It was perfect but of course, I cant afford this suit, so I put it on a card, a new one so I got the extra 10%. Like I need another card!                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:35 So now I have my occupy overalls (dont judge me -- literally the comfiest clothes I own) and my interview suit.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:40 But heres the thing.. I paid the extra to have it taylored.  I know. Stop.  It just didnt fit right in the shoulders.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:45 Now I think it was all just too much and I should really just try to call and cancel the whole order except this interviews all Ive got                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 18:51 @professorisin No! I didnt think to do it. Ill see if I can find it online later and send you the general look.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 19:00 RT @professorisin: @readywriting @occupymla  For dress/comport. at conf. interviews: http://t.co/DLLgXhHM; For more on interviews:...

OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 19:20 Although I do not doubt this sartorial advice is useful, we shall attempt to circumscribe our future posts to #omla-related issues.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 22:35 Intriguing. #mla12 #s745: Affecting Affect Theory.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 23:20 Im a little concerned abt this tweet RT @jvinopal: @miriamkp @nowviskie @surlyf I guess me neither because I said ppl wouldn't hire them.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 23:25 Whats that supposed to mean?  Wouldnt hire us for standing up for ourselves and other adjuncts? Troubling.                      
OccupyMLA 12/10/2011 23:30 Agh.  That post is really bugging me again.  What does she mean?  Back to grading. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 1:45 @triproftri I wasnt running the accnt, but I do remember we were getting pretty peppered with #altac comments that night. We were defensive                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 1:50 @triproftri But your rt abt rudeness.  If were going to affect change its got to be through respectful conversations.  Even on Twitter.                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 4:49 Cant sleep. That stuff @jvinopal was saying has me freeked out. What did we say?                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 4:50 Unprofessional? This is twitter. Its not like I wrote every post.                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 4:52 But is she right? Is the feeling that were now untouchables because of this account? For standing up?                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 4:54 I am speaking out.  THats her problem.  She resents me.  Well Im okay with being outcast for speaking out. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 5:01 @stinkylulu Its not that.  I finally have an interview.  These other guys have nothing. Im not saying they wont but Im the one on the line                      
Charles Reveals Hazel's Name [Deleted]                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 5:04 And I have deleted mine.  Apologies. It was a slip                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 8:00 We are still and ever The 999 Lines! Join us! #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 15:20 A student had the audacity to email a request to meet with me concerning her grade on her portfolio -- which I have not yet graded! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 15:25 Judging from the creature on the cover of her portfolio, I assume she will have reason to complain. Savage beast labeled "Honey badger"?                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 15:30 Based on its fierce glare, something tells me the beast, with which this student clearly identifies, is an apt choice.                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 16:30 Just finished grading an epically bad personal narrative recounting being 1st generation to go to college. Utter word salad. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 16:30 A clarification from me, one head of the 3-headed cat: this is about betterment for everyone so I am Glad one of us has an interview! #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 16:35 It may surprise some that I too was 1st in my family's American lineage to attend college. My father's collar: caerulean. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 16:40 Nonetheless, I worked tirelessly to ensure that my essays were always rapier point to the prompt and indeed compliant with MLA format. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 17:00 Next semester, I may just have to add Chaucer to the FYC syllabus. How would my prog. admin regard exercises in medieval style? #notgrading                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 18:55 OK. Stepping up to the #omla microphone, gonna write my share for the shared account and sharew ith you all the Model of the Cafeteria.                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:00 So, my gf has driven up to for our annual traditional Weekend of Grading in Bed. Pot of Sumatran coffee. Papers all over the duvet. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:10 And, yes, on our Weekend of Grading in Bed we mostly grade papers. Behave!  But this morning: a deep talk abt TT and non-TT dynamics. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:15 My gf is way into social-psych recently. She says: All academia is just a middle-school cafeteria. Tenured control the Cool Table. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:20 Cafeteria Model: from the Cool Table Tenured rule the hierarchy, keep TT craving to to sit at the Cool Table w/mixed signals #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:25 Cafeteria Model: Tenured don't have to pressure Contingents directly, the TT do that for them, as a way of earning the Cool Table. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:30 Cafeteria Model: What the feudal hierarchy wants from Contingents is clear body language of fear and anxiety. Stomp foot, room cringes #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:35 Cafeteria Model: Face it, we've all managed to stay in school. The adolescent parts of us are all still alive, grappling for position. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 19:40 So either: All academia is like a middle-school cafeteria or we're just sleep-deprived and addled from too much grading. Back to it! #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 21:40 Shout out to everyone grading in bed this weekend! Woo hoo! Hope you have company! #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/11/2011 23:50 Show of hands . . . who's still grading in bed??? We are! More coffee! #omla We are not contingent! Resolve! Our eyes are going to fall out!                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 4:13 For pity's sake let us not re-open a sciences vs. humanities rift! Just when some semblance of solidarity is our only chance. Scholars all.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 4:19 @mrsalander @BendProf @readywriting @afrayn My contract comes through 5-10 days before start of term. Seems about average for those I know                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 4:45 @professorisin heres a pic of my interview suit, diff size. I dont get it from the taylor till Wed, though. Excited! http://t.co/9VaQ4ehi                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 4:48 @keethink You know how it feels when you spend out of what youre going to need, tho. Still, worth it when I walk into the interview!                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 5:49 @keethink thats what @readywriting was saying, long term investment.  But this years especially tight. Thats okay. Ive got a good feeling!                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 12:30 #omla-ers: Hey, are we going to use the paperclip-on-the-collar to show omla support at the conference?                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 12:35 Yes. The other option, if memory serves, was to draw an O on the badge itself before the MLA; however, the paperclip would be more dramatic.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 12:45 I dont want to damage my new suit, but it does have a winning collar. So lets do the paperclip.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 12:50 Okay, make that official, to show you support #omla at the conference, please wear a paperclip on your collar. Or stand with us! #MLA12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 14:30 Now the Student is requesting an audience with my dept. chair concerning my lackluster end comment on her penultimate paper.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 14:35 Adjunct faculty need department chairs willing to defend them against the tyranny of student entitlement esp. on evals. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 14:47 I know we're in Today's Modern World of Now, but still an e-mail rejection letter stings that little bit more than a paper one.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 14:51 The e-mail rejection letters must be sent out in bulk at Sunday midnight. Gives the impression that they work all night, without stationery.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 16:25 Im so upset.  I know we agreed to limit the personal stuff but this is messed up! wtf                      
Hazel loses her interview                        
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 16:30 Just got an email about my #MLA12 interview.   Seems they have some concerns.  Might screw the whole thing up.  #fml                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 16:45 I thoght we were protected by hootsuite.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 16:50 The school mentioned #omla at #MLA12. Now my applications undergoing a secondary review process                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 16:55 Said theyd let me know by the end of the week.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 17:10 Be calm. We are the only ones who can hurt our chances.  Resolve. #mla12 #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 17:15 You did this.  Saturday night.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 17:20 Even if someone suspected the identity of the #omla team, they would not be legally permitted to use that to impact their hiring decision.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:01 Thank you for your DM notes of inquiry about our #omla member. Though matters are uncertain at the present, doubtless she will be vindicated                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:15 The rest of us wait.  Still no adjunct schedules? To what other purpose could you be putting your time? Oh, yes, wasting my life. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:22 Using adjuncts like wads of puttie to stuff the holes in your schedule is one thing; scheduling them the week before classes, cruel. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:24 Membership in a reform movement is an intangible that should be considered a foremost sign of character, not a blight! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:27 @roopikarisam We are members in a movement for reform in #highered. Voices of dissent. A coalition.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:32 @roopikarisam Because Hootsuite does not show users who else is logged in, at times we are not aware of who is until we see a posted tweet.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:33 @roopikarisam Our connection to Occupy shall be in our voices of critique and in our occupation.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:35 @philsandifer Institutions should be made aware they they too will be held accountable for any retributions to #omla members. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:40 2nd rejection epistle received today. Brief form letter, handwritten note appended like margin notes, misspelled name. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:45 @roopikarisam There is plenty of time for elaboration both here and at MLA. Alas, the job forecast is turning a bit grimmer than expected.                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 22:48 mla tip: Many will use #mla12 to amplify their voices. Let us use it instead to turn our attention to those without voices: adjuncts, ntt                      
OccupyMLA 12/12/2011 23:06 @roopikarisam We've had differences of opinion on how to utilize the account. That member was at the time understandably overcome.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 0:32 MT @miriamkp: Petition urging NLRB if grad students @ private inst's have same rights 2 unionize as public http://t.co/LtKY0gQP #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 4:35 Had good long look at the December finances. Worse than I feared. Hundreds away from MLA travel costs. We used to hitchhike #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 13:00 Good morning #mla12 #omla.  Sorry, but no one's responding to my emails, bc, or anything. Trying to figure out what I missed.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 13:05 Pls. email me what's going on with your interview. Is it still on? Did they really figure out who you are? What about the rest of us?                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 14:45 The money sitch is a little sketchy for Seattle. This is the prob: MLA is a hub but it's pay-to-play -- unless you have travel funds. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 14:55 @bendprof @triproftri Hey, why not change the #mla12 #funrun to a "fund run": run for #mla13 travel $ for adjuncts, NTT, grads etc.?                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 15:05 @bendprof @danconnell @triproftri Seriously, why run just to run? $5 a head & you could help an important cause: access to #mla13 or #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 15:15 Don't people run for a cause all the time? Make the #funrun more than just about hanging out!  Try a #fundrun at #mla12 to benefit #mla13                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 15:49 @bendprof Yeah, but why not raise more? It's really rough out there for some of us. Come on, don't just run for yourselves! #mla12 #fundrun                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 15:58 @bendprof That's awesome and those runners are representing the MLA spirit -- why not make it a display of good will! Come on, #mla12!                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 16:55 Rejections notices III & IV arrived today. If you have received any, please add them to my bestiarium. #mlament #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 16:56 @academicdave Is there a link for said wiki?                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:05 Rejection the third: a brief email form letter addressed merely to "list2"  #mlament #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:09 @johnmjones Thank you.  I shall take it impersonally! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:10 @meg_stewart Your finances appear to be in a similar status to our own. We wish you glad tidings this season.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:15 #mlament Rejection the IV: Included a long handwritten note! Put by mistake in my colleague's mailbox, returned opened with a stickynote: :(                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:40 Hey, suggestion in DM that we put a band-aid on our collar beside the #omla paperclip to say we care about adjunct health care. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:45 After yesterday's news, we should scuttle the paperclip-on-the-collar as recognition sign for #omla. Jeopardizes others n'est-ce pas? #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 17:55 I saw about her interview.  How'd they figure out who she is?  We never use our names or any kind of id.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 18:05 It was an accident.  Deleted almost immediately.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 18:10 I have done nothing untoward. Per apologia, she had already tweeted my name, had told a blogger sensitive information. #bc                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 18:15 But that wasn't her.  That was me. I thought it was okay.  You were already DMing him. Thought he was on our side.                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 20:18 Really? RT @mlaconvention:Spots are still available for sustainable-seafood class and wine pairing at #mla12! http://t.co/GxI8ub5P?                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 20:30 In debt & vulnerable to the whims of advisers and programs, for grad students  "support' is a euphemism for exploit! #mla12 #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 21:02 MT @triproftri: #mla12 #fundrun 7am on Saturday 1/7: http://t.co/Jwu41OKr  Who's in? #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/13/2011 21:20 Read: We are not contingent: an adjunct manifesto http://t.co/NF0iKCV3 #mla12 #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 13:05 For as many classes as adjuncts teach across #highered, its amazing how little voice or choice we have! Join us #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 13:15 Sounds like #mla12 is not up to do a #fundrun. Woulda thought they'd go for that.  Tis the season and all, eh?                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 13:55 Let us not promote or permit the exploitation of a perpetual adjunct class without reliable salary, benefits, employment! #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 14:05 Rejection Letter V arrived via email. Worst blow yet. The job for which I had prepared my syllabus for a Chr?tien seminar. #mla12 #mlament                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 14:15 Not only was I denied but a mole tells me they're cutting off the medieval line, calling a failed search, & switiching it to a DH job #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 14:30 Outrageous! I am perfectly qualified to teach #DH or medieval lit with DH. I use Twitter, Hootsuite, and Zotero with Worldcat                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 16:45 It mustve been something abt my mom. raised me by herself, went to school when my brother and I were kids, earned an RN. Worked all the time                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 16:55 Taught me its important to fight for yourself, for others.  Fought Drs., hospitals, admins, still does. Guess thats where I got it.                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 17:00 She never taught me you might get caught up with screw ups.  Anyway, guess thats why I had to come back, even if I lose the interview.                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 17:10 When I got that email,  I was this close (fingers inches apart) to hanging up the whole #omla bit. Leave it to the boys.                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 17:15 Sorrry I cant let this thing go down without a fight. Even if the others go and alienate all of #MLA12 with their funruns and antics.                      
OccupyMLA 12/14/2011 17:25 But I just got a call that my interview suit is ready.  Cant bring myself to pick it up.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:25 Rejection the VI: Nothing remarkable except was the same CC to which I applied upon earning my PhD. 10 yrs later, the record skips. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:28 Comforting to know the team has not dissolved despite our setbacks, perceived slights.  I look forward to our triumphant arrival in Seattle.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:35 Perhaps these rejections have mellowed or tempered me. I must say, I rather like this design for the #omlashirts http://t.co/Ebzfzfd2 #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:40 I gaze at Twitter feeds in Hootsuite from the literati & digerati, like scrolls of ancient runes of a forgotten kingdom in the land of snark                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:43 & it is difficult not to wonder if the rejections do not stem from a fundamental difference between me and this rising band of clerks.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 4:50 #mla12 tip: Ride the zeitgeist like the valkyrjur-- not as though riding a valkyrja but as the valkyrjur ride their steeds aflight!                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 5:42 Adjunct faculty should be permitted (and encouraged) to teach courses in their areas of expertise! Fear not, we will still teach FYC! #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 12:05 I cant take it.  My mollars are killing me now.  What do you use? Ibuprofen? Tylenol? Chainsaw? #fml                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 12:30 You think we adjuncts want your jobs, but what really need is healthcare! # #highered #unjust #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 13:45 #mla12 #fundrun  Runners! Make this run a sign of support for adjuncts & NTT.  $5 a head for travel support or membership cost relief!                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 15:00 If adjuncts make up more than 1/2 your faculty, shouldn't we have more than 1/2 of the seats on the governing bodies? #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 15:10 Oh, and by the way, adjuncts ARE faculty. #omla                      
Charles loses his adjunct slot                        
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:01 Apparently, the adjunct schedules were assigned 2 weeks ago. One of us was not offered courses for the first time in 19 semesters. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:15 WTF?                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:20 Thats terrible.  Im sure it was just a mixup. Your students LOVE you. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:31 I had supposedt it was merely delayed. Thought they would get to me later, and then later, and then later. Nothing.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:40 No "mixup".  Fiscal crisis, says the chair.  Not enough students enrolling. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:45 bc? #omla #MLA12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 16:55 No. It is appropriate that #omla hear what has happened to me.  I am comfortable with the circulation of my private agon #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 17:05 For, this Twitter circle (@rgfeal incl) has awarded me more significance than I evr received from my institution aside from my pupils #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 17:15 Even when they were assaulting me, ganging up, deriding me, sniping & snarking, at least they responded, unlike my purported colleagues.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 17:25 Occupy MLA has given me a measure of purpose and a place in the public agora.  #mla12 Seattle will moreso. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 17:30 Even so, I have not heard back on all my applications yet. I have every reason to expect a positive response within the week. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 18:00 Hey are you serious. I just read. Did it have something to do with that student complaint? Should we be talking about this here?                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 18:15 I have nothing to hide. Who knows, someone on one of the committees might be perusing these lines now. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 18:25 Does that mean we should start using our names?                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 18:35 I dont think thats what he means. He means it might make cmtes look at all their candidates more carefully, right?                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 18:50 Further revealing our identities would not be prudent. One of us has a practically definite interview. For now, we shall remain anonymous.                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 19:00 Okay, but did that tweet last night mean that you want to do #omlashirts after all?  We could still do the paperclip on the collar, too!                      
OccupyMLA 12/15/2011 21:30 To put it all in perspective: Biochem major, great essayist, tells me he switched majors to Lit bcs of my class! HE tells ME: do what u luv!                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 6:04 Assigned Reading: A Circus of Bad Faith Garnished with Incivility by @JohnACaseyJr #mla12 http://t.co/gwQsOf6C                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 12:15 @cantavestrella Its working, mostly. thank you.  Still quite a bit of t hrobbing but manageable.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 12:25 @readywriting This has been the story of this past week for me!  Bad Female Academic: Emotional Wreck  http://t.co/atqZ1odw                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 13:05 Lit. PhDs wrack up twice as much debt as those in science and engineering, and we don't even need particle accelerators. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 14:05 Just got a note about my #MLA12 interview. Its off.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 14:15 shouldve seen this coming, folks tweeting they wouldnt hire me, people were bound to figure out who we were. Shouldve expected it.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 14:17 @readywriting thank you, Lee, guess it wasnt meant to be.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 14:25 Guess being a part of #omla is one of those intangibles. Well, who needs a job that doesnt support a little rabble rousing, rt?                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 14:37 @academicdave just mine. they didnt mention omla again by name but they mentioned online activities.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:01 We gravely regret any harm we have brought our members in the process of launching our protest via #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:10 In every contest, there are casualties; nonetheless, we did not anticipate the levels of enmity that our resistance would earn us.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:15 The many calls for us to reveal our identities, the suggestions that we would be better served in the light, have proven to be ploys.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:20 To all those who seek to speak out on these public channels, be ware.  Your tweets are being monitored by friends & foes alike. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:30 Even when they do not "follow" you, they are tracing the footsteps of your every tweet, waiting for a moment to use it against you. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:35 Its all right.  It was my choice.  I am not ashamed.  My name is out there. Fine.  This is an important cause.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:40 @ProfessorIsIn The fault was mine. I tweeted her name in a  moment of anger.  Believed I had delteted it quickly enough.Most regretable.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:45 No search committee should pillage your dream merely because you associate yourself with a movement, no matter how faulty.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 15:55 Hey, I have no regrets.  Were the 999 lines! Were #omla!                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 16:05 If ever there was a time to use apostrophes, that was it.  Surely, your phone has buttons for that sort of thing. No auto-correct?                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 16:07 @academicdave thanks, that gave me a smile.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 16:45 You should really go retrieve that suit of yours.  You're going to need it.  You shall not protest in overalls.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 16:57 @digiwonk yes!!!                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 17:00 My overalls are soooooo comfy.  You have know idea!                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 20:00 TT faculty needed to solve a problem. They created a magical solution that saved money and took burdensome courses away: adjuncts! #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 20:25 #mla12 #s194 #omla Need tips on how to protect oneself when speaking out.                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 21:15 "TT faculty are not really an enemy, just a competitor on a very unlevel playing field." Be advocates not competitors! http://t.co/ZKLF6zF4                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 21:20 No, TT not enemies. Perhaps just forgetful. Looking ever up the ladder instead of back down. We genuinely want better/best for all. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 22:15 Is it not time for adjuncts at last to unionize? @NewFacMajority @AdjunctNation? #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/16/2011 23:30 Hey, I know I'm late to the funeral but how could any school drop a candidate for supporting something like #omla?  We're the good guys!                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 2:15 Get this: someone wants me to "talk" at #mla12 about my "MacPherson and ancient Scots ballads" (sic) work! But it's NOT an interview                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 12:10 The occupy #mla12 encampment/installation/whatever needs to be Positive! Keep our sense of humor, offer solutions, not just gripe #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 12:15 We're writers, rt? So our signage should be smart, witty. We need compendium of the best slogans. "We are not contingent," etc. Suggestions?                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 14:10 Oh to be #mla12 #165? Imagine my opening quote from Aquinas, my allusion to the Wyves Tale, joke about teaching Sir Gawain to Green Writers                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 14:30 The Abelisaurus, glancing up from its bloody meal toward the massive incoming meteor, roared might'ly to the skies: TENURE. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 15:50 Coming to terms with the realization, accepting the fact that I have not been called in for any interviews. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:00 Ordina l'uomo, e dio dispone.                      
OMLA decides to cancel its plans                        
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:15 Given recent events, wondering if #omla is serving any of our interests. We speak out, we pay the price. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:23 @savasavasava I believe this would be the moment to offer you a &lt;hug&gt;.                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:25 Furthermore, since I was not offered courses to teach next semester, no contract, financing this operation has taken on an ashen hue. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:35 Many believe that our nomenclature #omla signals we are protesting against #mla12. Is not the naming convention: activity-location?                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:45 Perhaps the occupation is not an activity but a status in question. Our very "occupation."  Such a protest would not require phys occupation                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 16:55 Thus, I am considering alternatives.  A virtual protest.  Or something more dramatic. #mla12 #bc                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 18:30 little hard to get up today. chill, overcast, mollar ache. Couldnt shake the fog even w coffee. Ended up back in bed.  Need to grade.                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 19:35 For a dose of reality, follow this link! Campaign for the Future of Higher Education http://t.co/Zvo27zmQ #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/17/2011 20:05 Rejection letter the final. Nothing momentous.  An average missive.                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 0:45 Now I know what it's like to be shut out by really good goal-keeping With yesterday's cancellation our little #omla team is 0-for on appli's                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 0:50 Every job has its tortures, but constant CV self-sales dance of fear-n-hope is NTT living. Restaurant gig is looking better & better. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 4:55 Finals plus job hunt is depressing. Even in college applications you're rewarded for "community activities." But now: don't rock the boat.                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 5:00 & the push to specialze does'nt pan out either. One of my rejections basically said nobody cares abt Scottish Enlightenment Sorry Im dpressd                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 5:10 Sorry. I know. Don't drink and Tweet! I'm Scots studies, though! We have the primo liquid consolation. Occupy #mla12! Drown sorrow!                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 5:30 Last thing I'll say. (I know: 'shut up!') W/a good restaurant job I culd live in same town as my gf. Shout out NTT longdistnace relatinshps!                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 17:15 Over the past several days, we have been debating via bc my proposal to call off the physical occupation of #mla12 #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 17:20 The low response rate, our own lack of funds to travel to the conference, recent events in our personal lives suggest cutting losses #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 17:30 For those of you who tweet "I knew it," I commend your lack of confidence in our abilities as much more accurate, apparently. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 17:45 Our occupation then shall be parallel to our employment, liminal. Uncertain of details, though clearly Twitter will cont. to play a part                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 17:55 #mla12 has made Twitter so central to its conference that it only makes sense to employ that as our staging ground.                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 18:50 Tell every grad student & adjunct you know: Be icily pragmatic! The TT job is a fairy tale for most, like pay equity #omla #MLA12                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 19:00 Need to make a list of new goals for my academic future, brutally realistic goals, goals that dont require a massive retirement of tenureds.                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 19:15 Whered I evr get the delusional dream of a TT job, and why is my self-worth attached to it? Was it the diss. process? Undergrad? #MLA12                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 20:30 @jendrouin i dont want to say the name of the dept. I hold the cmte members in high esteem still. One edits a key journal in my field.                      
OccupyMLA 12/18/2011 21:20 head=brick-slammed, almost fell back asleep finaly for a nap just when gf called. They want me to delete my tweets from last night. #f-that                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:25 What is #omla without the o? A bitter twitter. What's an ongoing stream of tweeted complaints if not just a pest? This sucks. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:28 Backchannel!                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:30 No. I'm here to hold someone accountable. How can we do that if they don't have face our faces at #mla12?                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:32 You are embarrassing yourself & #omla.  When she tweets about US being unprofessional, she is referring to YOU. Pls. #bc                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:34 Oh, ok. You never liked me, my ideas, #omlashirts, Hug an Adjunct Day. Lighten up! it's not a dissertation, it's twitter!                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:37 Our followers do not need to hear about your personal life, assinine drunken tweets, your gf. A shame.  We are a movement.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:38 So what? gonna tweet my name?                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:40 YOU already have, yours AND mine. You mindlessly trust anyone who sends us a DM. You are just as much to blame as I.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:43 What r we doing this for? You promised us we were gonna change things. You said we'd get jobs, interviews, Itrusted you. Look what hapened                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 4:45 Pls utilize the bc! I was not lying to you. What jobs? I thought this would help, but it does not help #omla to show our feuds in public.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 13:20 Following our decision to cancel the physical occupation of #mla12, we are now seriously considering closing the @occupymla account.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 13:30 Such a decision would result from our failure to employ this collective Twitter account coherently & from divergent visions for #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 13:40 It is also a direct result of the exposure of our members' identities, an exposure that is being perpetuated by #mla12 itself.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 13:50 Nonetheless, we ourselves have been at fault for exposing each other through indiscretion & lapses in decorum. #omla                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 14:00 Those who wish to rush to judge our tweets, however, should first look into their own feeds. #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 14:10 In retrospect, the use of Hootsuite made our simultaneous tweeting more muddled than we had anticipated. Perhaps ProfHacks will comment                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 14:15 Hey, we haven't decided for sure, yet, rt? We're just raising the possibility. #bc                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 14:30 Yes, of course.  We are merely raising the possibility for discussion, for tweetback if you will.Still many days before #mla12. Suggestions?                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 18:05 The thought of closing the #omla account feels strangely good to me like a cool bath after a workout thats left you bruised, beaten.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 18:15 Made a new list for myself late last night. Things I could achieve that wouldnt be settling.  Jobs dreams.  A TT job wasnt on the list.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 18:25 But its gotta have benefits, living wage, and the golden ticket: stimulation. Something that challenges me. Thats why I did the phd #MLA12                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 18:35 Spent some time working in a uni writing center.  Could go back, maybe, or maybe private HS, or library. My aunt loves her lib. job.                      
OccupyMLA 12/19/2011 22:05 It has been resolved: we intend to cease posting from the group @occupymla twitter account.  Commencing final posts. #omla #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 1:30 We call upon all of you to use #omla at #mla12 and whenever you wish to stand up for adjuncts, NTT, grad. students, the voiceless                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 4:30 Downs& updates! I got an interview. Pulled the trigger on a job possibility near my gf, same city. But it is a restaurant gig. Stoked!                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 4:35 They need a prep with pan-asian exper & also PR help. Just talked w them. They have an aggressive bus plan despite econ. & perf. location!                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 4:40 The owner spent 50 minutes on phone with me. We bonded. High concept, local growers, idealistic, benefits! Why not? Plus I get to write!                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 4:45 We have the same taste in herbs and adverbs. :)  I'm not saying I'll say yes... but worth a trip down to see my sweetie. #luvyou                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 4:55 We're not contingent! (But life is: taking me another direction, away from #mla12)  I'll write my Scots epic book during breaks. Publishers?                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 5:05 Give em hell on health care! It's why I'm considering bailing on academe! We are not contingent! #omla forever! DM-haters: #kizzit                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 13:30 Since CHE brought us so many readers, we should present CliffsNotes.  First #omla is a shared Twitter account tweeted by 150+ members #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 13:40 In case you have not heard, the time has come for us to close down @occupymla. This account has served us both well & ill (cf. our archives)                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 13:50 A principle cause for closing the accnt: a blogger deceived us into naming one of our own who then sadly lost her job interview at #mla12                      
OccupyMLA 12/20/2011 14:00 In our absence, there are many whom you should follow. They are truly invested in real reform & have helped us begin this dialogue #mla12
