Ah, The Standard tries to be so hip (and probably is host to many photographers who don't allow a shadow halo from their flash to appear in the picture - but that's neither here nor there).   Its multi-striped orange and grey blankets - echoed by grey and yellow and white wavy stripes on the wall - have the legend woven into them: "All people are multi-dimensional."    This allows for all kinds of interpretation: the obvious self-flattery over one's personal complexity; the adaptability necessary for all candidates on the job market; the ability of individuals to do yoga stretches on the bed and with their shoes on.   I have a quiver of conscience in that I assured Alice that I wasn't taking a picture - but that, truly, would have been a foolish thing to have believed.
