Well, there may have been a few other forces involved in the selection of today’s ensemble: I needed to wear something comfortable and washable as I had to move offices (more on this later). But I couldn’t wear jeans as my faculty’s “Holiday Party” (horrible title – why can’t it just be an End-of-Term Shindig?) was this afternoon, and I promised my department Chair I’d go and do some hobnobbing (gah).
In short, this is what I’ve got on now as I sit happily in my new office*:
~ I had to take approximately one zillion pictures this morning because this kept happening. I was VERY careful during the soiree.
* Professorial Aside: I cannot believe I finally have an office with a window AND a desk that’s neither constantly squeaking nor made of dented steel. I know a LOT of university faculty don’t ever get any of these things. But for whatever reason, these resources are available in my department. Until very recently, however, there was no one in charge who was interested in allocating said resources. Hurrah for new leadership!
