I have just exchanged a long series of emails with various persons at Cold University, trying to get the speaker's schedule; my boss is speaking here tomorrow and I would like to corner him for 15 minutes and try to hasten this whole graduating thing. (Apparently I get exactly 15 minutes which, if you have ever met my boss, is typical.)

One of his hosts here is a former postdoc from the lab, now Cold U faculty. After asking what the heck I was doing in Cold Utopia if I was a grad student at Snooty U... he asked if I'm looking for a postdoc.
