Random Bits of Serendipity

1) The Dream Academy (a.k.a. Universitee de Medieval Woman) is flying out one of my best friends in the world for one of our positions. It looks very much like she would get this position, because the only other option is a failed search. This means that (if she accepted the hypothetical offer) I would have my wonderful, fabulous friend-for-the-past-decade in my department to go along with all the other wonderful, fabulous friends I've made these past few months.

2) Still no word from ANU about TD, buuuuuut they haven't said "no" yet. It seems very likely that they're not having the best of luck with the other offers they've made, so there's still hope. We're keeping everything possible crossed, which makes it difficult to do anything else...

3) I must go to the grocery store because I'm out of *everything*....my cupboards are barren...my fridge is a hollow shell....and I am hungry....

How cool to have the possibility of a friend as a new colleague! I know it's not the same as TD being in the same state, but it's still a cheery thought!

And I'll keep some fingers and toes crossed for TD's situation, too!

Ooh, yay! It's so fun to bring in old friends to match the new.

Things could still turn out with the other situation, so keep hoping and plugging away!

That would be so! much! fun! *Crosses more digits...*

Please advise ANU that my appendages are cramping, and I refuse to uncross them until TD is offered a fabulous job there and accepts!

I assume that this is...the person I think it is? Fabulous! Yay! And I hope TD gets his job down there immediately!
