I'm not sure why, but this clip cracks me up.
Why did I post it? Well, I will tell you. The fam is attending it's first office party for Marc's new job at the local PD's office this evening. I'm sure it will not be nearly as whimsy and exciting as this clip, but it will be WAY more fun than the office parties I remember from the local Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association that I used to work for. (DAMN! Those were some BORING parties) I get bored just thinking about them. Anyway, this will be the closest I've come to an office party in over 5 years.
Fortunately I know many of the people Marc works with because he worked with a handful of them at his last real job, investing capital cases for the State. Anyway, they are a lively and liberal group so I am actually looking forward to it, and since I have nothing else of note to say at the moment, I'm saying this.
It's funny that if you Google First Friday you will get many links to different cities promoting their local art and art districts with a monthly celebration. The reason this party is named First Friday is because it's when the State workers get paid. They feel that this is worth celebrating... I do too! I also think it's cool that they do this each month at a different person's house and that occasionally they even get a few wanderers from the DA's office! That is very encouraging!
It's good to stay cohesive and celebrate the little things, the good things or just getting together because you can. I think it's also great office policy. People who party together, STICK together! They pretty much have to don't they? I mean they know too damn much about each other not to...
Life, ain't it grand?
