Time to party!!!

Absolutely nothing got accomplished at work today... Everyone was counting down the hours until the holiday party. As a joke, my co-worker e-mailed me a picture of a can of Spam w/ the caption below: "You've been spammed by a can of Spam!" (An inside joke since I'm the only one at work who has never received e-mail spam).

At 12:30, the office closed and everyone practically ran out of the office... It was finally time to party! We all met at an (real) Italian restaurant down by Mitchell International Airport and had a blast. The food and drinks were flowing freely as we shared humorous holiday stories, humorous office mishaps (mainly about me unintentionally setting off all the building alarms one night during the make-up finals without knowing it), etc.

After partying with my co-workers, I headed out to visit a friend... The drive was horrible due to the fog! Since I am a pro at gift wrapping packages, I did all her gift wrapping while listening to Josh's "Awake". Later on, some other friends came over and we watched the director's cut of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

By the time I was ready to leave for home, the fog had gotten worse - almost 0 visiblity out by my friend's place (and I had about an hour drive home). I drove slowly out of town using the lines on the road as my guide. The worst part was getting on the highway (0 visibility). Taking the ramp at 5 mph I made it safely onto the highway and headed towards Milwaukee. The further south I continued, the weather improved. The trip took me a little over an hour, but I made it home safely. And, now I'm writing this.

Take care.
