I spent 2 1/2 hrs at the high school last night for another Christmas concert, one which I was struggling to stay awake through. It was too warm and too long. Not only was the high school band performing but also the chorus, some sort of barber shop quartets, some old guy (!) that was singing in the chorus and then was granted a solo. Not only that but the old lady music director says that she's in a new group and they're having their competition soon so they'll be up next. OMFG. Seriously.
I assume Sugar Bear did great, but I couldn't see him as he was without a doubt the shortest "high schooler" in the crowd. I never saw him and he never saw me, unlike the night before. Darn it! I didn't even take any photos.
Holiday party is tomorrow and I still have to get a Secret Santa gift, a gift card, decorations and 30 champagne flutes. Ohhhh and did I tell you the receptionist extraordinare is leaving? Yep. So we're doing a slide show of her through the years of holiday parties. Lord help us. This was totally not my idea. A couple of associates came up the other day and approached me with the idea, saying they had so many pictures of her from past holiday parties and what did I think. They didn't really want to know what I thought, so much as wanted me to do their dirty work.
"Isn't that a great idea. Could you make sure it's okay with the owner?"
"He likes you!"
Ugh. I have a feeling these are going to be very crazy pictures of an inebriated receptionist but I did as I was asked, letting him know that I wasn't putting this together. He said it was fine and thanked me for telling him. "I don't like surprises". And then *somehow* the conversation turned to sex. I swear it wasn't me! I don't wanna kill a 79 yr old guy with a heart condition!
*half hour later* My boss Al stops by and says that he went into the owner's office and he had a big smile on his face so he asked him why. His response was "Because Josie just stopped by."
See that? I bring cheer whereever I go! (especially if you are giving me a large holiday gift, like him)
Okay, enough chit chat. There are two important things you need to know if you are reading this blog.
