Two days in the job.

.

I'm still here. Just a little dizzy and bewildered.

I am now "Laboratory Director" of a reasonably large laboratory in Melbourne; part of a worldwide chain of American laboratories; so, who knows, I may get to the US yet.

I have tried to sever the links between the 'work me' and the 'blogging me' - my picture's changed, all links to my website gone. Just in case my various forays into sex, religion or politics touch any unnecessary nerves. Likewise I need to be a little careful with the Chemist's Kitchen blog, dealing only with generic issues, not specific products. Nor will I write about the company or the staff here.

But it has been an interesting two days; lost and floundering as one always is when new at a job. But the people are nice and it is a pleasant work place so it bodes well for the future.

And the coffee is excellent.

  5. AMERICANS?!?
    Watch your back and wallet, then.

    Still, you can't beat an office with good coffee.

  16. hey lee,
    what a lucky company to have seduced you into their midst! i'll look forward to your wry observations on the "peculiar" ways of the working world. my observation?: the bigger the company, the more a miracle it is that anything productive occurs.
    take care, big hugs,
