Just got back from my work holiday party. I work for a city, so they can't treat us too well on the taxpayer dime. The city buys the ham and punch, and the rest is potluck. Still, good food!
Unfortunately, I love food and I'm a lazy fuck.
Wow, it's like you took the words out of my brain, Crumps.
I'm gonna need a
slogging partner in Chicago, since I won't be playing hockey.
I plan to run up Lake Shore to Lincoln Park and go to the free zoo.
Ugh, city departments should be able to have the same holiday parties that the private sector does. I used to work in government so I know what that's like. I mean, potluck is good and all, but still. /rant
Why no hockey?
City department is a revenue-generating utility, so our department can afford to actually treat us. Our department
holiday breakfast is next week.
No hockey, at least at first, because I don't want to commit the time and money until I know if it's even feasible. I'd have to find a men's league that doesn't mind women (not a big fan of all-women's hockey), at a rink accessible by public transit, and buy a smaller hockey gear bag that I could take on the bus/train. Plus there's the issue of paying for league fees with student loans.
We'll see. Definitely not first term, anyway.
