Meetings in my PJs

My close friends (and now blog enthusiasts) are familiar with my favorite part of a pair of pajamas. They’re a pair of green flannel pants with monkey faces on them, lovingly referred to as my “monkey pants”. They look something like this:

MonkeyPants

Upon arriving home from work – most typically in the winter, I’ll relax by slipping into these comfy pj bottoms. Once this happens I’m not leaving the house. I’m already in comfort mode, and there’s no going back into restricting jeans. So as great as these pants are, why am I telling you all this? I promise I’m not a part of the vast monkey pants lobby.

One of the best changes about being back in New York is attending meetings at CERN. Since ATLAS is a global collaboration most of our meetings have access via the CERN phone system or the internet. This is now how I access all the usual meetings I would attend a few months ago. Lucky for me, most meetings at CERN are held in the afternoon (so that the North American colleagues don’t have to call in at 2 a.m.). They usually fall from 9 – 11 a.m. I’m usually on campus for most meetings. Nothing really special about this scenario… However, every once and a while a meeting  falls at 7 or 8 a.m. in New York, I’ll attend the meeting from home. Which means…. meetings in my monkey pants!

Could it be any better? Maybe with one of these…

Unfortunately last time I checked, there were no complimentary sundaes from the LAr group. But with that exception meetings in my pjs (with no guilt about it) are a big bonus to being back in the US. Until next time 🙂
