    Well done sir.
    Arrow+Knee jokes are only good when they apply directly to the conversation, as this did.

    Just like "that's what she said".

    I have to say that it's unusual for me to come across anyone who expresses surprise that I'm a woman working in technical IT these days... which is why this guy's reaction flummoxed me.

    Perhaps, he wasn't aware that kitchens can have decent tech too?

    You Say that but alot of Professional Chef's are male - just like the IT Industry. I'm all for Females in the Industry! Google is actually running a graduate program to encourage more females into the profession!

    Professional Kitchens are one of the best places to work IMHO (having been there done that) not for this reason though! Its hard work though for not great amounts of money!

    Females rule males
    Geeks rule non-geeks
    Therefore:
    Female geeks rule EVERYTHING

    My academy envy has manifested itself as a horrible cold, so it'll be a while before I recover from it. Still crying myself to sleep...
