I just got a possible job offer (as in, "we're desparate; someone we trust knows you; send your cv") for an academic job. For which I haven't applied. For next year. In Minnesota. With a real salary.
I have to say no, of course. I've already accepted a job for next year here. I can't teach three classes per semester (with five new preps) next year and finish my dissertation. I have a lease. I can't handle snow. Or move to Minnesota in two months.
But, wow. Nobody's ever offered me that kind of money before.
I think I'll sleep before replying.
