christmas party ...

The annual company Christmas party is a bit early this year -- this Saturday, as a matter of fact.

Once again, for like the 5th year in a row, I will serve as emcee for the event.

Being a natural ham, I'm the perfect kind of guy for the gig. I'm also quite extemporaneous and locquacious, which is needed in a good emcee.

This also means I have to get a ton of stuff done over the next day and a half, as we set very early deadlines on the day of the party so as many employees as possible can attend. Remember, I work for a daily newspaper. There has to be a paper put out every day, and it has have actual news in it, so we can't shut down for a day, not even for the Christmas party ... heck, not even for Christmas.

So, I'm cutting back slightly on my World of Warcraft (heh) and giving up a little sleep over the next few days to get set.

And then the weekend will be pretty full for me too; I have to get some work projects finished up before Monday.

Hope you're not going to be as busy as me ... bleah.

Well have fun doing it, that's what it is all about anyway! Ha! This time of year is great, but it can also be a pain in the extemporaneous ass. Sometimes.

I didn't really mean that Santa!
