So a far amount of us just all bunched in together. It was a godo time... a few bottle caps placed in precarious places. A little perturbing that there was some plotting against my personal property. That's very off-putting to be honest. Especialy when my wife was asked to be recruited. Anyways, I'll try not to dwell on it.
What I will dwell on is the total lack of the dress code. We had said this was to be a Christmas themed party. It was my idea to put the attire on the bill. I had even gone out and picked up a sweater, some boxers and a tie, plus I had some stupid elf hats from earlier. I think only Mandy wore something. There were some talk of socks and maybe a green or red shirt spattered into the crowd, but that's about it.
All in all, it was still a good night. I printed some Christmas cards with Trish's reindeer pose. The food was a big hit, and it got pretty noisy... nothing loud, just the typical cocktail party din of voices. I'll have to go and put some pics online at some point. Didn't take too many, but enough. There's a video of it... maybe I'll start that youtube account yet.
(now onto the New Year's preparation)
