Deja Vu

Another wednesday off work after a party. This time we had two days of party. Both seemed a little lacklustre and routine…and all in all a bit sad. Monday was the christmas lunch. It all started off quite well with the starters, wine and christmas crackers. Everyone was jolly and relaxed. But the main course took over an hour to turn up. The only reason this bothered me was that I’d organised it and was aware of everyone’s impatience, albeit due to pre-arranged meetings etc.
Poor Margot, the landlady, was almost in tears about it and it really wasn’t her fault. She’d never done a meal for so many people. Overall most people enjoyed it but the next day I had to deal with lots of tedious comments from people about waiting for food…everyone had heard about it. I also lost out financially. Oh well.

The next day was the IS christmas party, which is generally pretty crap but made pleasurable by being an afternoon off work and involving many bottles of wine. This year, there were only 2 wine boxes and everyone fucked off by 2 o’clock…apart from the hard-core of people that usually stick around. In my role as the Dead-Horse-Flogger General, I literally had to go round and persuade people to come back. Jesus I’ve got to leave this job…

But today is another relaxing day of listening to nice music (I’d forgotten how good Bongwater is) and writing loads of old crap like this. The birds eeking, a new hard-disk installed in teapot, nice cup of tea…ahhh…
