Last night, we had the annual Studio Christmas party. There are five businesses in our huge open-plan office, and they all pitch in for a big Yuletide bash. It ran from 5:00pm to about 11:00pm, but being a Christmas party we seemed to have three sets of guests that arrived and departed throughout the evening.
During the setup, I helped make the punch. Apparently we acquired the mix from a so-called ‘private label’ or no-name brand of soda–some kind of 7-Up knock off. I became a little obsessed with the name of this product: Choose Up. Peculiar, eh? I connected it with a kind of ‘pay it forward’ soft drink ethos, but that line of thinking went nowhere.
Thanks to Travis for that photo, and for making me look like such a playa (as the kids put it) in this photo. I uploaded a few photos as well. They’re all pretty average, though I’m pleased with one in particular. That’s Jada, age five, trying to peak into the room to which Santa retired after distributing gifts for the kids.
