Tonight is my company's Holiday Staff Party. It will start with a social hour from 6-7pm and then a "Midwest Buffet" will be served. It will consist of "braised beef tenderloin tips, breast of chicken supreme, fresh sauteed vegetables & rice, tossed greens with assorted dressings, fruit & vegetable salads, and desserts". Ever since my early childood, I've been an awful fussy eater. And these days, when I'm watching what I eat, I want to truly enjoy the foods I do eat. So I plan to go and eat at Friday's (my favorite restaurant),
and then go to the dinner just as it's ending (tee hee).
I have done this before. In '99, I went to the wedding of one of my friends. During the reception, I had dinner at the Kahler, which was, excuse my French, "crap". So I headed to Wendy's and had a burger, fry, salad, and pop. I returned to the reception in a much better mood for some reason.
I did the same thing at the reception for one of my friends' friends in '97. That one was really shit since they allowed smoking and most of the bride's family and friends were Catholic. In case you didn't know, Catholics love to smoke (orally fixated, I guess).
Karaoke will be going on tonight from 8pm-midnight. Somehow, I don't think we'll stay that long...unless they let me sing, "Smack That", that is.
