Meet the New Boss
A strange encounter with one of my supervisors last week included a conversation about "Professionalism." A concept with which I have never had a quibble. However, this conversation included many eddying tangents indirectly addressing my appearance. What I gathered, and it was by no means directly communicated, is that administrators at this hospital "should be helpful but invisible to patients."
In other words, not seen, and heard only in passing and then quickly forgotten.
Seeing that this is how I looked during all my job interviews, it seems, in this respect, they've hired the wrong person. Oh, my hair was more of an "eggplant" color during the interviews. And that hot pink streak, well, it was Safety Orange. Fortunately the surgeons I work for all appreciate my look, which is very professional in all its funkiness.
In knitting news: Wolle aus Deutchland ist angekommen! That's Evilla Vorgarn, a skein of 8/2 yarn, and a big hank of Kauni Effektgarn. Chris would not take a picture of me rolling around in it.
