Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Got so bored in the nth unproductive meeting at work the other day that I started taking photos of anything and everything in the room!

The heads you see are three of my 70+ language teaching colleagues, from left to right you see an English man, a French women and an Irish man. Their heads of hair are as diverse as they themselves are. Some have more, some have less. Some are blond, brunette or greying.

What unites us all is a desire to have our work recognised and be fairly paid for it...not asking for too much, is it?

Nothing worse than being stuck in a boring meeting. At least you got something productive out of it(photos!)

Tanya - it's everywhere, isn't it? ;-)

Marley - you're right!

Med.kiwi - well, at least I know I'm not the only one then!

Elaine - I've worked at this university since 1992 and we've been meeting interminably for all these years...progress is slow when most everyone is against you...

Magiceye - thank you! I appreciate that!

Blognote - sounds like you know what I'm going through!

Jm & Trenta & mumbaiiteanu - thanks!

Saretta - this is too funny! I love the blond hair - wish I had as nice a head of hair. But I do have brown hair with very little gray (thanks to my maternal grandmother) even at 50 (that I just turned.)
BTW - some waiters MAY have been Italian @ NYC Tr. Daniella... I only asked one if he was Sicilian & he said NO. But some definitely looked South American.
