Paris the Pastor

Paris the Pastor
Originally uploaded by Peacebang.
Remember how you had all those questions about what to wear on your hospital visits during your Clinical Pastoral training?

Just get a gander of the beneficent heiress Paris Hilton making the rounds at a children's hospital in Sydney. What you can't see is that the jeans are cuffed up to mid-calf length, and she's wearing open-toed white slingbacks with a 4" cork heel.

Aside from those details, you know what else really works about this look? The bare shoulders and the Heidi braids and the little insouciant white bow in the hair. Nothing says, "I'm here and I care" like braids and a bow.

Let's ordain her RIGHT NOW.
Because she is so totally called to this work.

at least she's there.
i'm guessing the kids couldn't care less what she's wearing.

if my supervisor could see her...
she'd be out the door in a heartbeat.

And here I was hoping I could at some point wear my crocs to work.

dang it all, paris, you've ruined it for me.

Lisa, you're so much nicer of a person than I am. What I saw in this series of brutally inappropriate photos was "Blonde PR Whore Looking For a Photo Op." I would love to know how many minutes she actually spent on the premises before she went to her next party.

On another topic... Did you see the nice shout out you got at Possible Water? I found her blog through yours, and read it now and then. Take a look.

BTW, I totally agree with you about Paris.

may I simply say that it is worth three or four minutes of hysterical laughter to contemplate the hypothetical scene if my CPE supervisor the Proper Irish Sister crossed paths with Chaplain Hilton.

it's just TOO funny.
I'm with ya PB. no cork wedges in hospital.

Hi Peacebang,

While we're mentioning CPE, could you do a piece on appropriate CPE attire for subway-riding NYC seminarians like me? I am going to need ideas on professional clothes for a short, chubby 30-something seminarian - things that won't make me look totally wilted by the time I reach the hospital in mid-July in the city.

Rev, they weren't even WEDGES! They were slutty white HEELS!!

Soph honey, we talked at length about CPE duds in the archives. Try the summer months of 2006 and you should strike gold. I really need to organize this blog into categories and someone lovely offered to do it for me, but I haven't gotten in touch yet.

Sandals in the hospital--ick!

Imagine what the blood and gore do to to a pedicure. . . .

Note--she's looking at the camera, not at the child in the bed.

You made me spew coffee on the keyboard with this one, PB. I'm seeing Paris in a clerical collar with a VERY deep "v" neck....

The thought of my CPE supervisor seeing one of us in that outfit ... we'll, it would almost be worth having paris show up for a day.

i don't know which is worse for cpe ... the shirt, pants, hair OR shoes.

such a photo op.

you know, PB, you might try adjusting the blogger archive to list post titles instead of dates--then it would be much easier to scroll through looking for a posting topic.

just a thought.

crocs are the way to go, dame olympia!

i found a pair of brown crocs without the holes in it for my summer at the hospital. they were the most comfortable shoes in the world for me. They even looked good with my jacket and tie - very prep school.

oh yes, I know, Jeff. There is much love in the croc world..

I gotta figure out the Non-holy croc option here.

I think Paris sported the Heidi braids because she confused Australia with Austria. And good thing she wasn't wearing a mini skirt - those poor sick children need not see her flashing her goods, which should be aptly concealed by undies.

P.S. - how do I go about finding a picture to go with my comments? Looks like this is what all the cool kids are doing here.

let me rephrase that:
how do I go about POSTING a pic to go with my comments?

Nevermind. I figured it out, although feeling like a meatloaf probably should not be a part of my "better me in 2007" plan, yes?

Hey, PB, at the risk of revealing my complete and total dork-ness, is it possible that that is actually a photo of Britney Spears?

I loooked at Flickr enlargement of the photo and noticed the web site at the bottom: Went there, looks like Britney's web site. Didn't look around there (too gaggifying), but just wonderin'...

That is 100% Paris, honey. As far as people posting photos on the comments, I have no idea! The photos you're seeing are our self-selected images for those with Blogger accounts.

A person looking for a former PB BTfM posting can also do a search. Just put any word in there - e.g. CPE or subway or what-have-you, and voila!
