Having a ball ...
We had the works annual summer ball yesterday. It was a black tie affair, which is a tad strange for our office - most of whom are Essex louts! But we managed to behave ourselves for the most part, and the ball was a great success. The bar was free and we used it to it's limit. I was more than suitably drunk by the end of the evening. The food was excellent (which was a nice improvement on last year) and I had a really enjoyable evening. I gambled fake money, and wound up just about everyone I work with (I was on top form for the wind ups). I took some very blurred pictures of people I don't even know. (I think someone must have borrowed my camera at one point - cos I definitely don't remember talking ALL the photos on it) I managed to nick a couple of beer mats, although I think I remember promising to give one to Tony.

When I got back home I came online to chat - I'm not sure why - I just had this urge to chat, and no-one was here ... er.. that's not strictly true - but no-one I usually chat with. So I chatted to Cali for the first time in about 5 years. I wish I could remember a bit more what we talked about - but I'm afraid the alcohol really does fry my memory cells.

Today has been spent mostly nursing my hangover ... and installing stuff on my Laptop. I have refused to get dressed today - and wandered around the house in my bathrobe. The weather was terrible - it rained most of the day - sometimes it rained so hard the splashes from the floor reached 7 or 8 inches off the ground. There was a storm about 6ish - but it never amounted to very much.

Current Mood: groggy groggy
Current Music: Vangelis - bon voyage

<laughs> Sounds like a good time, 'cept for the hangovers & such. Not unlike me at New Year's, I'd imagine. ;) <smoooooches> I love you, Mr. Park.
