I’m so sick, saddened and embarrassed by the results of the election that I can’t even stand to think about it. So I’m trying not to…
Fortunately the new job is so exciting and keeping me so busy that it’s easy to think about other things. Today I actually managed to make a contribution to the company’s publicity efforts in between the continuing rounds of introductions.
The department held a little welcoming fika for me this afternoon complete with princess cake. The atmosphere in the office is really wonderful. Today my boss was dressed in jeans and my colleague Linn brought her dog to work with her. “Smilla” is a black flat-coat retriever and such a love. Evidently Linn had my office when Smilla was a puppy, so she’s quite comfortable there and would wander in and stretch out in front of my desk every once in awhile.
I think I’m going to like working in Sweden.
