I survived the company holiday party. I even had a good time. There were thousands of people there and it was more than a little overwhelming, but the MSG was a terrific date. He put up with me being a nervous wreck over the whole thing, plus he escorted me around all of City Hall, chatted with my coworkers, and even danced with me despite the bad DJ. (Why, after all these years, I still know all the words to “Baby Got Back” remains a mystery.) Perhaps I’ll post a photo tomorrow.
Some other special people helped me out, too. Inkbot spent the time and energy to style my hair so that I felt like a princess. Shannon helped me calm down by shopping for accessories with me. And Hawk, upon hearing about my craptastic week, sent me flowers at work. I am so grateful for all my friends who listened to me vent and offered support.
Today was a good day. I helped the MSG move into his new office, and then at home we watched a wonderful movie called “Gaudi Afternoon”, plus we made delicious homemade mac and cheese. I also bought myself a copy of The Sims 2, which I will now load up and disappear into.
