The lab xmas party begins
This is me and my officemate B* in our Santa hats, which we wore to the bitter end (around 9:30 PM). Our lab Christmas party begins in the office with Irish coffees, after which we traipse across Hyde Park to a seekrit squirrel location (aka a pub) for 1 PM, when we commence eating and drinking in earnest. Later, there are Bananagrams, arguments about politics, and maudlin reminiscences about Christmas parties of the past. (There are no photos of this.)

Anyway, between organising, participating in, and recovering from, this party, there hasn't much time for updating Dreamwidth. I'll endeavour to rectify this over the next few days. Happy Solstice, everyone!

* In case you're wondering why he looks like a giant, he is. He's about 6'5". I'm a foot shorter than him.

That's about the height difference between me and mine, too. :)

I wish my Christmas parties featured Bananagrams.

We tried to play an acronym round (far too) many drinks into the evening. It was difficult, although I was rather proud to have worked in FAC (field-aligned currents) for geek points.
