Friday evenings at LegalMatch are typically dead. Most arrive at the office early with hopes of leaving early to start their weekends. Things were not so on the evening of December 16. Although many left work early their agenda was not to go home. Many LegalMatchers pre partied at local taverns and pubs to wet their whistles and warm up another chilly San Francisco evening. Around 6:00 P.M. they made their way to Harrison Street where all recount hearing the sounds of laughter and general Holiday cheer echoing through the hallways.
As for favorite Holiday Party moments. I heard stories about spilled liquids and inebriation. There were whispers about a skit put on by one gentleman wearing cheetah print and a lace tank top while “Don’t stop till you get enough” was on the jukebox. Guess you really had to be there….Maybe someone took a picture. All in the all the party was a success. It is nice to see your co-workers having a good time outside of the daily grind of the office environment.
I know you are all wondering about the canned food drive to support the Salvation Army of San Francisco. Well all of your hard work paid off. I believe the last can count stood at 119. Not too shabby for a weeks worth of collection. I say next year we double or triple that number although I applaud each and every one of you who donated to any charity this Holiday Season. Congrats go out to all who won prizes. Enjoy them. Nobody in my vicinity won anything. Maybe next year.
As 2006 fast approaches I asked my colleagues about their New Year’s Resolutions. Here is a sampling: Many are in search of a healthier lifestyle (exercising more, eating less, quitting smoking). Others are tying to get those smokers to quit. Good luck with that. Some want to further their education by obtaining another degree while another LegalMatcher wants to fulfill last year’s resolutions on top of new ones. We are an ambitious group. But one of my favorites of course was to never make another New Year’s Resolution. As for mine…To spend more time with my friends and loved ones. I recently received an email from a good friend who reminded me that “Life is Too Short.” Boy is he right.
