Zip-A-Dee-Do-Da Zippadee-ay, my oh my, what a wonderful day! Because it’s Friday, it’s my last day in the office until 2008, it’s pay day, and my cold has nearly gone! I think these are good enough reasons to be in a joyful mood.
I hope everyone else is happy?
I have been working at the speed of light today, to make up for being absent from the office yesterday afternoon.
We had our team lunch at a pizza place, handy location, within walking distance from the office. No prizes for guessing what I ordered - pizza. An Americana pizza to be precise, and it was very tasty. Although the knives were far too blunt (it was hard work cutting that pizza) and I had to ask the waitress to turn the heater down as I kept having hot flushes. I wasn’t the only one though, everyone turned a delicate shade of red, as a result of the boiling room temperature.
As well as lots of tempting pizzas on the menu, the menu boasted that famous diners such as the Marx Brothers, Mickey Rooney and Liberace had graced the restaurant with their presence. Alas, yesterday it was a celebrity free restaurant, there was just us lot from the 3rd floor.
After Pizza, we decided a visit to the pub was required, and a darts match would be fun. We all had to choose a bogus name for the match, so I decided I was 'The Careless Whisperer'. (I can hear the groans, as I’ve incorporated George into my life again!)
But I became too preoccupied with my wine, and with chatting, and didn’t actually throw one single dart. With my eye sight, it was probably just as well.
I had another pizza in the evening, not that I’m complaining, a girl can never have too much pizza (or shoes and bags). This time I ate it in the company of my friend Eve, as it was her birthday. Keeping up the home-made card tradition, I made her card and bought her a purse, which she requested. We watched Hairspray on DVD, which was the ideal light entertainment film. I must say, John Travolta was very convincing as a woman.
And here I am, back at my desk, about to tuck into a gingerbread Christmas tree, courtesy of Someone in the office.
Only another half day to go. But don’t worry, I’ll be blogging from my lap top at home, you don’t get rid of me that easily!
Happy Friday everyone!
