xmas party raider
I really like the holidays. And there’s no better embodiment of the holiday spirit than holiday parties. I like dressing up and looking good; seeing everyone else dress up, too. I like the drink and food — all for $free-ninety-nine. I like watching coworkers get inappropriate with each other. Sometimes, I even like the music. So, when I hear of other company parties, I can’t help but crash.
The Future Network Magazine Xmas party was last night, at the W downtown. I got my start writing there there as an intern at a great computer magazine years ago. It’s felt great to show up, say hello, and take off.
So if you hear of a party, don’t be afraid to crash it. Dress right. Show up late. And remember to say hello to a few people to blend in. Keep your head up high as you stride towards the open bar. Meet some new friends, and if anyone asks you what department you’re in, just tell them you’re there to have a good time. Cheers!
