I Guess I Should Have Waited...

Though it snowed a lot yesterday and it looked like every class was canceled, the seminary had the final New Testament professor candidate make his presentation. Since no one answered the phone when I called three times, I assumed they were closed so I didn't go.

Here's what I know. Candidate One was a woman who admitted she just turned fifty. (Age I think is less of an issue here but there you go.) During her presentation I thought she was a bit shy and I freely admit her "introduction" to her topic was more interesting than the topic (Cleansing in Luke and Acts) itself. When I saw her again, at our weekly chapel service, it happened to be Ash Wednesday, she was much more relaxed and, to be brutally honest, I liked her more...

Thursday was our visiting professor's turn to be permanent. On paper he's more qualified than the first one. He seemed very nervous and I was very bored. His topic was connecting the Psalms to the Gospels; mainly Mark. One of the professors looked like he was trying to rip the top of his skull off but I'm willing to admit I could have been projecting...

Again, I didn't hear Candidate 3 but my boss thought I'd be impressed. There may have been three students in attendance. Googling the name, and if this is the same one, he has fairly impressive credentials. Obviously, personality is unavailable...

My boss thought a decision on the OT position would happen soon...

In other news, I received my second royalty check today which officially doubles the number of books sold. Remember retailers have 90 days to report sales so Christmas gifts for instance wouldn't necessarily be included. Due to differences in discounts given to various retailers, I received an extra .90 cents this time despite the same number of copies sold.
