I get to go to work and see patients rather than sitting home with the newspaper (its NYT online, but still) and a cup of tea. Ugh.
A called yesterday to remind me that we are going to this five diamond resort next weekend, where his research paper will be presented in a conference. They have several fancy restaurants, one with a nine course vegetarian degustation menu.
Um, what do people wear in such places? The website says 'Jacket required for gentlemen.' Hey, what about the not-so-gentle woman accompanying the gentleman? I've never been to a formal restaurant here ( I know, I know, my education is sadly lacking). My wardrobe consists of two kinds of clothes- those that I wear to work (pants, skirts, shirts, the occasional sweet blouse), and those that I wear to go grocery shopping (denim, cargos, tshirts, casual shirts). Can I get by with dress pants and a girly shirt, or will I need to buy a dress?
