Ah, the joys of not having posted in well over a month. One would think that such a dearth in posting would be the results of having an exciting life where I go out and do stuff. This is not the case, look at today for example:


Woke up nice and late at around 10ish, got dressed, and then wandered over to Maggiano’s for my company’s holiday party. Even though my company’s growing rapidly, we’re still relatively small(about 50 people) and thus we have said party during the work day and for employees only(so I didn’t have to deal with the dreaded plus 1 issue). After having a fabulous family style Italian lunch, we did a gift game, where I almost scored a fairly nice cigar, but due to all of the swapping antics ended up with a Far Side calendar. I know that I work for a slightly non-standard company when among the gifts exchanged are one of those classic Atari joysticks, Halo 2 action figures, a lava lamp, a pair of blue Christmas ornaments, and a snow globe that farts. All and all, a good holiday lunch, I just need to find a charge number for it so that I can get paid for it. Now I just need to find things to do on my mandatory paid holiday week off of work next week. I suspect much of this will be dedicated to skiing, World of Warcraft, and a crazy New Years Eve party up in Pittsburgh.

Since I ate enough to that I’d be round enough to roll home, I figured I’d take advantage of having the middle of the day off and finish up my Festivus shopping. Now that I’m done with contributing to the secular holiday present giving festivities, I need to get some wrapping materials to make them presentable for the all of 15 seconds before it all gets destroyed to see the goodies inside. Honestly, I enjoy the holiday season, just not a big fan of teh krazinezz that makes people absolutely bonkers for something that’s supposed to be fun.

Whoever said that you should never go grocery shopping while hungry definitely said nothing about doing such while very pleasantly stuffed(even many hours later). In addition to buying my typical staples, I’ve walked out with all sorts of interesting looking foods including more clementines(even though I already have a bunch), some rather tasty salmon, exciting looking Terra-chips, and a wheel of brie. Damn you Whole Foods for your attractively packaged food to entice people to purchase it and thus consume it! At this rate, I’ll soon be nice and fat to survive the rather chilly DC winters.



I managed to pick up a bunch of Festivus cards(mostly to send one as a joke to aexx), but I’m sure that I’ll get use out of the other ones. So if anyone wants a Festivus card from me with delightful commentary, post an address here, and I’ll be sure to mail you one. I’ll even make sure to mail them after Christmas to make them true Festivus cards.

Wait, DC has chilly winters?

I didn't think the cold was legally allowed that far south...

I've been doing my Festivus shopping. I was a little late in setting up the decorative pole though ...
