Day negative 1?

Two hours at school on a Saturday morning. They promised us a free breakfast, and we got it (biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs with cheese and spinach?, and potatoes), but I cannot tell you the food was spectacular. I mean, I have had worse food, but it definitely could be better.

Mostly it was an introduction to some of the administration. We met the vice-president and the dean. The vice-president was very personable (Wendy Bennett), and the dean (Chef Peter Edris) was very serious. He explained to us the importance of the uniform, and how it must be clean and pressed every day. I definitely got the impression that this will be a very serious endeavor.

The uniform
White shirt with “Le Cordon Bleu” written on the left breast. Pants are a black and white hounds tooth design with an elastic waist. Shoes are all black, very simple, steel toe with an extremely slip-resistant sole. Hat is white, kind of a skullcap, called a comme hat. White cravat tie, which must be tied on your own. All of this is somewhat ridiculous, but we’ll see how it goes on the real day 1.
