Where they as bad as you expect or did you get so drunk you can’t remember?

Just got back from my “Mamma Mia” themed Xmas party lunch… yes I wrote “Mamma Mia” theme. Funs. Food was excellent though, and we had cake. Mmm cake.

My partner’s work (an international company) cancelled all Xmas parties for all of its branches everywhere to save money. I guess if cancelling the parties means it saves one persons job then they are doing the right thing.

Southern Cross Club room hire let us down this year. Food not as good as I remember it and becuase there was no bar, the drinks service was very, very slow.
Had a better time at the in-office Christmas lunch, made it ourselves and took all afternoon to eat, drink and be merry.

No Christmas party for me…or my missus for that matter. Seems like companies no longer like to promote good will and team morale anymore since when we left 5 years ago. Profit margins seem more important these days!

don’t get me wrong, we would have a christmas party if we were a large branch, but only 3 staff, bit of a waste.

A friend of a friend had to be carted off in an ambulance from alcohol poisoning after about six too many champers. She was so embarrassed and mortified she forced herself to go to work the next day to save what was left of her reputation.

And no, it wasn’t me. I have no reputation left!

Last Friday night, excellent restaurant, excellent wine, a little too excellent, I forgot I was drinking wine and not beer so subsequently got sh!tfaced.
Nearly pissed my self ’cause I got lost looking for the toilet despite the fact I had been there many times that night…
Missus wasn’t real happy with me on Saturday though, many chores to get back in the good books. She was ok by Monday.

…..or tried hitting on your bosses daughter/son/wife/husband/father/mother at your work Chrissie party.

@$50 a head I chose to not go to mine – and save telling what I really think.

Ours is tonight, everyone at work is cranky with each other and like to drink a lot.

Hopefully it should be an amusing evening.

Ours is this afternoon. Just finished shoe-horning two cases of coopers and a dozen bottles of wine into the fridge. To make rook I had to chuck out some lunches from home that I reakon must have been brought in when John Howard was still in power.
