Funk... and not the good kind

Get up (get on up)
Get up (get on up)
Stay on the scene (get on up)
Like a lovin' machine (get on up)

Bobby, should I take 'em to the bridge? (Go Ahead!)
Take 'em to the bridge? (Go Ahead!)
Take 'em to the bridge? (Take 'em to the bridge!)
Should I take 'em to the bridge? (Yeah!)
Hit me now!

Husband is pretty much not going on the job market this year. Long story short: certain experiments are bastards and his paper is not finished. He will miss the vast majority of deadlines for this year's TT jobs. He will have to wait until next fall before he can do a full blown job search. This will delay... everything.

It's disappointing, but it's fine. I am... regrouping.

Get it together, right on, right on
right on, right on, (right on, right on)
right on, right on, (right on, right on)
right on, right on, (right on, right on)

In other news, Bean likes James Brown. She knows how to shake what her mama gave her.

Bummer. Bumps in the road and delays are not always fun, but hopefully his application will be much stronger for the extra time, making the TT job search smoother.
Keep that James Brown going

:( It is way too hard to postpone moving on. I hope it is worth it in the long run!

i think some video is necessary to illustrate Bean's skills...

I second MotV! Video!

I'm sorry to hear about the delay. Uncertainty is so hard to deal with. Will your job hold out that long?

I'm so sorry to hear of the delay and disappointment.


And shake on, little Bean!

Congrats on the 'shoes' elsewhere...

And I am surprised that no one linked your lyrics up..!! How shocking. Though I do note a slight, uhmmm ...discrepancy in the lyrics.
