Work functions are so much more palatable after your fifth drink. Suddenly, everything you spend eight hours a day doing seems hilarious, and all the intimidating suits in upper management are fair game for mockery and drunken wit. To hell with their histories of blank stares and inability to remember names. Chrismas is the great leveller of corporate horseshit, and the chance for true brilliance to shine through, jump on a table, kick off its shoes and do a fantastic rendition of Janis Joplin. So to speak.

I love making a gregarious idiot of myself.

I know someone who, when inebriated, doesn't walk. He perambulates.

Ah, the joys of being an employee of unimelb... at least you're guaranteed a crapload of booze at the end of the year...

ahhh yes... booze. No food, mind you, but enough booze to drown a giant squid and perky little blonde girls zooming around to fill up your glass. Like you're some kind of festive alcoholic royalty.

Luckily it was University House, so you know there's a Breughel in the next room should you need to void your stomach. I can't think of a better artist to throw up on.

Ahh... takes me back to my first year, where the University threw a huge party for all people who participated in Discovery Day and underestimated the scope of damage that could result in giving a hundred or so students a lot of booze and inadequate security to stop us roaming around University House.

They didn't invite us back the following year.

the question is, are there any photos and why haven't they been posted yet?

tomorrow will put my endurance to the test - both in
drinking and social areas.
seeing i'm kicking off the day at 8:45, there's arts party
until we head to the restaurant at 12 then lawn bowls at three.

i may have to spread the janis christmas cheer to the cheltenham staff.

I'm cheering for you in your day long booze-train.

No photos, because no table-on-dancing actually occurred, but I can assure you there were a number of saucy show tunes going through my head as I wove gently back to my desk. In my drunken state, that mentally equated to actually using a breadroll as a microphone and draping my scarf around the neck of the manager of Student Administrative Systems.

Still... there's always next year.
