On Friday we had our company Christmas party. It was supposed to take place after work, but we're wild around here so we decided to do a little activity every hour during the day. It started at nine in the morning with a carol sing-a-long, then a couple of short contests, including musical chairs, which, lemme just tell you, is still a lot of fun a quarter of a decade or so later. In the afternoon we went full-on Mad Men and drank glögg and took jello shots to get us in the mood for an evening of bowling and an Italian julbord. I have awesome colleagues who I like even more when we're singing Christmas carols or running around the office carrying clementine-laden spoons in our mouths together.
