Everybody's Gonna Wassail Tonight 

Office Christmas party tonight. Holiday, Winter Solstice, whatever. We used to have them at the Windows on the World at the World Trade, but ever since 9/11 we've just tricked up one floor like the Senior Prom at Hollywood High and partied on.

I avoided it for years and years until 2001 when I decided to go so the terrorists 'wouldn't win.' Score one for the West. Turns out it was a hell of a party, been back every year and the Goddess is going for the first time this year.

Hell of a party, yes, but it's not like the ones we had when I first came on board. Gone are the days when you could count on at least one new associate throwing up on a partner's shoes. When at least one secretary would express her long supressed desires with magnificent inappropriateness. When at least one quiet little guy from Duplicating would decide to finally express his frustrations and disappear in a puff of smoke.

Good times.
