Party Times

Ok so last week we had our annual work do, reason to celebrate for some , reason to loathe post celebrating for others but still glad to have had some form of paid for entertainment to say thank you for your hard work during these past twelve months...We had a fancy dress themed party - movies that Lipsync worked on - and in true personal style I chose not to comply although as the hour drew closer I felt the peer pressure to at least show some sort of effort, so I got creative with some safety pins and some badges I got at that disastrous "Christian rock" gig last Wednesday...the irony is that my outfit was meant to represent a hardcore punk scenester from the good ol' days of Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll starring Andy Serkis...
There were some really good costumes on the night to be fair, my favourite has to be Jonathan as a Spaceman, showing true dedication there, Julia as Juno from The Descent, Scott as Meryl Streep's character in Mamma Mia, I mean it was uncanny...Pete has to be given top marks for play on words, Cashback, get it get it?! Cash on his back....although it was Julia's idea really...oh dear....
Needless to say that after a relative slow start, the night got into full swing before things quickly degenerated into a messy, drunken whirl of silly dancing and unrequited love confessions making the next day tea making times in the kitchen reaaaaaaaly aaaaaaaawkward and only a few were left standing by the end of it. The good ones of course like me and Pete and Angela and John Stanley who had to go home sans lovely black coat - but got it back the next day, some drunken colleague went home with it don't you know - all in all it was a good night and we had fun the next day swapping stories about oh you know the usual, who went home with whom, who got sick in the toilet...you know the pretty standard post work Xmas do tales...
And here's some evidence from the night. 
Happy Christmas everybody!
Cashback...
Doing ok still...
Crazy times with the Boss man...
Wrongness...
Mess...
