It's hair slicked back day.
The office Christmas celebration was fun. First we had our monthly company meeting and it was revealed that everyone gets a $500 Christmas bonus. Nice. 

Then the company bought us all lunch and drinks (even rented the huge private dining space) at Scotty's Brewhouse next door. I had a bison burger, no bun, add bacon and jalapenos, with a side of steamed broccoli. And a couple of shots of Patrón tequila.

Next we walked back to the office (short was since it is next door) and had our gift exchange. We did a Yankee Swap this time rather than white elephant. The white elephant exchange last year was more exciting since due to not trusting the unopened gifts (some of them were duds, like a collection of Arbies coupons) there were a lot of steals (choosing someone's already opened gift and sending them back to choose another one to open). This year there were only three steals because the gift rules meant there was no risk of getting a dud. Ah well, it was still lots of fun to exchange gifts.

Finally everyone stood around and chatted while listening to music and drinking. I had a third Patrón and to maintain my little tipsy feeling of joy. One girl became a slightly angry drunk on beer, lol. O_o She was only angry because one of the group wandered off and didn't come back for 30 minutes or so.

I'm sure there will be lots of hangovers today (I'm not one of them). Lots to do today. I thought it was going to be a light day but more pop-up work happened overnight. That should make the day go faster.

The American Horror Story mansion is for sale (4.5 million). We should all pool our money and buy it. :P That would be a dream, but not realistic I suppose. It would be fun to live in the bloggers mansion though. Rethinking it, we wouldn't need to blog if everyone lived in the same house, lol. I like us far enough away to make blogging worthwhile.

Today's meals total 80 protein (60-90 grams per day is ideal for me) and 6 carbs

Laura's lean ground beef [20g protein]
green beans [1 carb]

Quest bar [20g protein][4g carbs]

  1. Triple tequila shots = nice way to get thru the day.

    Happy holidays!

  2. I prefer Jack, Jack!
    Glad you had a great time!
