Company Christmas party was today! Started after office hours (so 7/8-ish) and then lasted until midnight. Apparently, if you offer a prize of 10k pesos as an incentive, you can get people to do almost anything *grin* Had group presentations, and almost everyone joined in. That sounds almost... corny, but it was actually fun! Everyone let loose, and by my count, about a third of the guys in the office put on dresses for their respective presentations. Their (borrowed) clothes were all prettier than mine. I am envious. And I want those dresses/blouses/skirts in my closet.
I put on my high school uniform as part of my role. It still fits me, just as well as it did during high school; I haven't grown an inch since then (I don't believe in growth spurts. They are myths I tell you. Myths!).
Had a bottle of beer. It's beginning to grow on me. It's just like Cali Shandy, but slightly yeastier, slightly less sweet, and slightly more sour. And the caterer or the hotel (I can't tell which) had the most amazing
marble cheesecake. I only got crumbs, as I wandered to the dessert table too late, but oooooh.
I asked for the beer while I was in my high school uniform, and the waitress actually paused
and looked me over before deciding to grab me a beer :p (And I think she only gave it to me because I was so obviously in costume.)
Got Christmas baskets to bring home, and ham. (I did not realize Christmas baskets from the office were a normal tradition, but apparently they are)iruka11
, did you go to the Accenture party at Astoria? Ours was there too, and I wanted to ask if you were there, but I was too shy to poke my head in, and since I lost my cellphone, I don't have your number so couldn't text you.
Christmas party with blockmates (from university) tomorrow! Or maybe later. I need to wake up early so I can buy a present for the exchange gift *groan* I suck at choosing and giving gifts -- don't say I didn't warn you, my exchange-gift-mate! I... am not sure what time it is, or where it is. Dudes, someone comment please with the info? I won't have gotten any of your text messages, if anyone sent any, because of aforementioned loss of cellphone.
Sunday evening, I'm treating my family for dinner to celebrate my first paycheck (family = immediate family, grandpa, and one set of cousins). Given the number of people going (about 10?), I may actually spend more than I just earned :-)
Busy weekend. Need sleep, and you probably won't see me around much.
