    Watching the Ryder Cup golf matches today, I heard Johnny Miller say, "maybe Dr. Evil stole Phil Mickelson's mojo."

    I couldn't think of a more apt description for how I feel today.

    How is your mojo today?

    "Mojo" in the Austin Powers movies is the mysterious substance that gives Austin his vitality, energy, and virility. I guess the French would call it our "elan vital."

    In the song, "LA Woman," by the Doors, "Mr Mojo Risin'" doesn't really mean anything; it's just an anagram (same letters in different order) for "Jim Morrison."

    I just learned that "mojo" is a term that goes back to American blues of the 1920s. Some think that it is a corruption of the word, "magic." In Delta blues lyrics, it refers to a love spell used against someone, or it's a euphemism for sex or the libido. It can also refer to a good luck charm or an object used for good or evil in African-American hoodoo practice, i.e. in a bag of amulets.

    (Slang dictionaries are helpful).

    I use that word all the time when describing how my meds have stolen my libido.

    I was in the chat one day and the person was trying to say that ADs and decreased their libido without being offensive...so I just asked...Have you lost your mojo? LOL
