Christmas at Work

The following blog was originally posted from my old blog, The Geejay Journal:

With only a couple of days to go till Christmas day, I think I’m only just beginning to finally feel a little bit of Christmas spirit in the air.

Tonight, we will have our company Christmas party at Her Majesty’s Theatre a few blocks west of the office. I’m not so sure how that’ll be like but hopefully it’ll be fun. My only problem with the Christmas party was with the schedule. Tonight, a double episode of Stargate SG-1 will be shown on Seven while the Apprentice Season Finale will be on at the same time on Nine.

And since we’ll be out at the Christmas party, we were thinking that we’d have to decide which one to record on the VCR. Fortunately though, I was able to setup my PC to record TV shows, too. So we were able to schedule the recording for the Apprentice on my PC and Stargate and Joan of Arcadia on the VCR.

Anyway, back to the Christmas theme, we had our Kris Kringle distribution of gifts a couple of hours ago. By the way, I didn’t know that they had that here. Back in the Philippines though, we reveal the giver of the gift to the recepient. Here it’s anonymous.

The limit was $10 and I bought a deck of Uno cards for my recepient. I’m not sure if he liked the gift. Well, certainly he wasn’t overcome with joy. But what can you buy with $10 that’s worth ooohs and aaahs. I decided on the Uno cards because it’s a gift that I’d like to get myself. And by the way, the gift I got was a joke book. It was all right but I think the humour is very Australian (and I just didn’t get some of the jokes) or the author is just not that funny. Still, I like the idea of getting a book.

That’s all for now.
