( Letters! )
Last night was the Power Packer holiday party and I would have to say it was a lot of fun! We got there right at 5:30, which is when cocktail hour was starting, and plenty of other employees were already there with their 3 drink tickets already in hand. Guess I'm not the only one who follows the motto: early is on time, on time is (fashionably) late. :)
So Nick ordered a Brandy Old-Fashioned and I got an Amaretto Sour and we talked to Greg, one of the engineers, and his girlfriend, Kayla. Kayla seemed wonderfully sweet and we totally had one of those: girls-go-to-the-bathroom-in-packs moments, only we didn't apply make-up or talk about boys or anything. It was just one of those things that Greg ended up teasing us about.
The food was pretty delicious. I had salmon in a dill sauce and Nick got the Prime Rib (the slices were way too huge for me. They covered half the damn plate.) My favorite part was the red potatoes though. Mmmm...goodness.
During dinner, there were plenty of 12-year-old moments as Virginia, one of the cell leads, started cracking jokes about her cones getting fixed. This went on to me revealing all the things I'd found funny since I started working there and we had plenty of laughs about those too.
After dinner was the raffle and I did end up winning something. :) I got a hooded-sweatshirt that says "Fight Like A Girl" and it has the breast cancer awareness ribbon beside it. I also got a matching beanie. It's super cute and way comfy.
Then there was dancing, though there weren't a lot of people on the floor. In fact, I was the only one dancing to Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" for about 2 minutes because I apparently have no shame. :) I was rescued though by Virginia who didn't want me to dance alone. It seemed to me that the only dances that really got people out on the floor were the slow dances, country songs, and polkas. But my favorite part was when all the wives of the corporate men came out and danced to Flo Rida's "Get Low."
Good times, my friends, good times.
