APB: Seeking Good Mojo From the Blogosphere!

Okay, folks - TD comes for his campus visit and job talk this evening! Tomorrow is THE DAY. He didn't sleep at all last night because he was up working on his presentation. I just Skyped with him and his little face on the video screen looked so tired, nervous, stressed, you name it. He feels like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders and he doesn't want to shrug.

So, what I'm asking you is if you'd take a moment over the next couple of days and send us some really good thoughts, mental incense sticks, prayers, cosmic bribes, whatever! This could be the end to all the uncertainty that has been a part of our lives and relationship (either implicitly or, lately, damned explicitly!) for the past 5 years.

I'm picking him up from the airport tonight, feeding him and giving him a drink, and then taking him to his hotel so he can get to bed by 9. Then tomorrow it all starts for him at 8:30 am and doesn't stop even for a second until 8-9 pm. I'm happy they're wanting him to meet as many people as possible, but it's stressful.

Okay - that's all! I'm going to teach today and then go back to grading jail without passing go.

May Dutchman's interviewers feel extremely warm and happy and brilliant in his presence.

I'm setting my offering of chips and salsa (slightly nibbled already, but oh well) on the altar of the job gods as a sacrifice.

Wafting good thoughts and the scent of chipotle your way!

Good thought waves are beaming your way and TD's way forthwith!

Aw - you guys rock my casbah.

Seriously - I mean that from the heart.

I'll keep you posted - we will kick ass in little wooden shoes!

Belle said...

All pliable appendages crossed (and my eyes, if that'll help) that things go well. Good mojo, earnest prayers, margaritas to go w/sis's chips & salsa before the job gods... whatever you need.

Hopefully, TD will get some sleep. I'm sure he'll knock their socks off!

squadratomagico said...

Friday's dose of mojo is on the way!

Flavia said...

Oh no! I got to this late. But I will double my mojo-sending as a result. I'm sure TD will rock everyone's collective world.

Pilgrim/Heretic said...

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, how did it go? I'm all trembly with anticipation and hope of good things for you.

squadratomagico said...

Yes, DO tell -- he was all roeren und klaar, right?

medieval woman said...

Sq, how did you know?? And do you speak Dutch and we didn't know it??
