little background on the title. at a work party this summer, a coworker and i were playing around on the jukebox and for whatever reason, we both chose ABBA’s “Dancing Queen.” therefore, at any future events-including last nite-one of us has to say the title of this post.
as for last nite…little mixed. music was good, had a fun time dancing. food was decent too. paced myself well with the drinks…yeah, that was a sore spot. seemed like everyone was watching me to make sure I wasn’t drinking too much or too fast or whatever. what…just because i was dancing and having fun, it meant i was wasted? not so. anyway, i thought i was imagining things, but no, the hr manager gave me a mini-lecture when i mentioned going to the after-party…at that point i was like “f*ck it, i’m going home, sick of being baby-sat.” you know, i will be the first to admit i made a mistake at EB’s party…but do you really think i want to re-live it? no.
plus part of me is thinking i am really outgrowing these work events…a good part of the evening i was thinking how i can’t wait for the Flyers’ holiday party and awards party and how much fun i will have at both those events.
fun stuff coming up this weekend…tomorrow morning, the flyers’ annual “toys for tots” event…i won’t be participating in the running, but will partake in the caroling and hospital visit 🙂 later that nite, will have 1 drink on the early side for my friend’s b-day (though other teammates are taking bets on whether or not i will be out til 3 am like the nite before the Mother’s Day 5k.) then the 10k sunday (which i’m feeling optimistic about…albeit cautiously) followed by brunch with the other nyc bloggers!! how cool is that 🙂
oh, and i stumbled upon what i consider chocolate perfection. Chelle has Coffee KitKats…Uptown Girl has peanut butter Hershey’s kisses…for me, it’s the limited edition Mint Hershey’s Kisses. And if i had any say, these would be available year-round…they’re *that* good.
