A little closer

Today's earworm courtesy of the movie Elf, of which I watched two minutes last night: "Baby It's Cold Outside"

In less annoying news, I got a step or two closer to the Christmas spirit last night, at my client's Christmas party. Sixteen of us had dinner together in a private room at a nearby country club, which could have been stuffy and snooty if not for the fact that these people are in no way, shape or form "country club" people. In fact, the dinner was held at the club for one reason: the club is one of their clients, and offered to host the dinner in trade for some ad work.

I really love working with this client. They are the nicest, most down-to-earth people you'd ever want to meet. And they genuinely like each other, and like working together. Such a change from the back-stabbing corporate world I grew to hate at the cubefarm job.

I brought my husband, and in the car on the way home he said "that's a good bunch of people." I couldn't agree more!

Isn't it great to have a great group of coworkers instead of a glob of grinches? :)

Man, they sound great! Can we adopt them?

I have a great bunch of cohorts, too - my writer's group has an annual get-together that's not anything more than food, drink, and gabbing. We're family, and we admire and respect each other. They're the best "coworkers" I could ask for. :)

I am so glad to hear you had a good time. See, the Christmas spirit can strike at any time.

Um . . . I'm good, thanks. How (and I hope this doesn't sound rude because I don't mean it to be--but who) are you?
