Company Holiday party #1
Dan and Melanie as Christmas IdiotsDan's company put on a bash for all of its employees yesterday. The silly season has begun.

Dan's boss is a generous guy. He foot the bill for an extravagant buffet dinner and hotel rooms for his employees plus one guest. Dan and I were looking forward to a bit of festivity and dressed accordingly. We are unabashed Christmas Fools.

The food was pretty good (lots of fresh seafood), the bar was Open, and there was a live band that covered such modern classics as "Satisfaction" and "Mama Mia." We spent the night chatting with the company office manager and one of her friends. I got to meet Dan's boss's grown kids. But other than that, there wasn't a whole lot of mixing going on - and nothing remotely resembling the holiday season. The place wasn't even decorated, and while I had a nice time with Dan and the other two women - it was just a night out - with a motel room so that no one had to drive home intoxicated.

Dan's boss disappeared at some point during the evening. It was a little surreal. I didn't get much sleep and today I feel a bit like a zombie. Which just proves to me - the holiday spirit doesn't come from a bottle.

    It was kind of tame because you didn't grab the mike and start singing, Melanie.

    Next time, you must do this. THAT and start tearing off Dan's clothes.

    LOL! I was half tempted, but wasn't up to fighting off all of those middle-aged women. ;-)
