The Twelve Days of Tenure

On the twelfth glance at her case, what did we all see:

     12 people asking her questions in her office,
11 times taught Intro Programming,
10 journal articles,
9 pieces of software,
8 book chapters,
7 invited panels,
6 submitted articles,
5 mil-lion bucks!,
4 invited talks,
3 students,
2 post-docs, and
a degree from MIT.

NOTE: The 12 days of Christmas is (easily) the most satirized song ever. I used to maintain a website of satires of it here but it was too hard to keep up? Why? Because anyone can write one. I wrote the one above in about 10 minutes during a faculty meeting to decide someone's Tenure case.
