Christmas Grinch

I'm just not in a Christmas mood. I was last week, but its been and gone.

Tonight is the office 'party'. It isn't really much of a party - nobody changes clothes and its in a very civilised restaurant - last year it was in the meat-market hell-hole On Anon, so I suppose the safety of a restaurant is preferable. But I'm really not in the mood. Despite being here over 2 years, I don't really know many people very well - most of the people I know well and like aren't coming. The others I either know and don't like, or are incredibly clichey and only talk to people in their own teams. I always go to these things though - firstly in an attempt to socialise with more people here in the hope it will get better and secondly, I'm incapable of saying no to free food/booze.

But at the minute, I'm thinking I'd have rather gone for a wander round Topshop, then home to one of my rice concoctions and an episode of Law & Order on the Hallmark Channel.

Christmas parties are very strange- we socialise with people we would never normally mix with and expect it to be a success. Just enjoy the free food, make the best of it and then get the hell out of there.

Yeah so know what you mean tho at least you get free food and booze -we had to pay for ours! (although I do work for a charity so that's probably fair enough...

Have a good evening

Christmas parties are just odd. They've always killed my Christmas spirit completely. I still have nightmares about seeing my boss trying to put on huge pants on the outside of his suit.
