This year's holiday office party was inspired by a tale of tall wizards and helpful elves,
guys with big hairy feet who follow dwarves around,
trees that walk and sing,
and terrifying, pale, mountain dwelling giants...
We took ourselves to see The Hobbit! We held hands, we ate popcorn, we laughed, we cried, we struggled to understand all the words. Being our own date has never been so emotionally liberating. Here's an illegal photo someone we don't know texted us during the previews, to prove we were really there.
After the film, we were forced to eat even more, seated at this uniquely rocket-shaped table.
Will the festivities never end? Thanks to the wine and delicious food, we took ourselves home and took advantage of ourselves, exchanging gifts, photos of gifts, jokes about gifts, deceptive gifts, and gifts of strong mutual interest.
And then someone xeroxed their butt.
(P.S. Thanks to our good friend Holly Bowman for photos 2, 3, and 4!)
