Wow, is it that time already? Sorry, I’ve been busy. Having more things published in The Local, for one. And look at those comments! They love me over at The Local; I’ll be running the thing in a year or two.
So my job flew everybody down to That Other City for the Christmas party. Having the company Christmas party on a Friday was a controversial move, since it meant that we missed half of Saturday also. However it saved the company having to pay us for 2 missed work days, so hurrah for them. And we got comfy hotel rooms, so hurrah for us.
Good things about the party: They dispensed with the whole Julbord (which is a Smorgåsbord, only with Christmas things like pickled fish and great big slabs of cheese) and served us a proper 3-course dinner instead. Which, hating buffets, I heartily approved of.
Bad things about the party: The cringing corporate awards ceremony; the terribly boring city; the appalling DJ who was clearly playing a compilation CD called “Songs that make you want to die, volume 5”. And the fact that it was held 3 weeks before Christmas.
But hey. And if you want an ironic summing-up punchline, then you’d better think of one yourself, because I’m tired of doing all the work around here. Plus my head hurts.
