I can barely keep my eyes open, i ache all over and i am wearing my glasses today because my eyes are too tired to have contact lens in. Why?
My office christmas party was yesterday.
I was part of the planning committee so we all went to town in a bid to surpass last year's effort which was a resounding success.
We had the party at La Scala which is at Muson Center and we tore it up. I was MC (apparently i am quite the comedienne and after what i did last year, this was an uncontested decision). Anyway, i got myself all dressed up after making sure the restaurant looked alright. It looked beautiful and the DJ set up looked promising. I got myself into a pair of jeans, a white top and a pink and white jacket. Jazzed this up with oversized gold hoops, a pink and gold enamel bracelet and my show stopping piece - a diamante "U" on a black suede cord. Pumps that are a bit difficult to describe but they were really hot. My hair is in braids so i had it up and then did my makeup. I hardly ever wear makeup but i got down to it last night and based on the compliments i got and the heads i turned including one indecent proposal from a married man, i know i looked hot.
We even had a simulated red carpet arrivals thing.
Anyway, i did my thing, went through the agenda that included team performances (these consultants really have life outside the office), Awards with presenters, nominees and acceptance speeches (including categories like ladies' man), Lucky dip (where the star prize was an flat screen TV), Dinner and speeches. I had 2 friends make time out to come and the official program ended well. Clients showed up ready to rock and so after we cut the cake, the lights went down and the DJ started. At this point, i changed from the 4 inch heels to flats.
Hey! We danced and danced. I danced with bosses, clients, friends. I danced for like 2 hours straight. The DJ was so great. One minute we were groving to "sexyback", the next it was "why me", then it was "ring my bells". Everytime i would get tired and want to seat down, the music would change and i would stay. Hey! I abducted a table napkin that i danced with and used to wipe my face. We danced and danced. I was one of the last to leave at about 1am and i am paying the price today.
Head aching, feet aching but i wouldnt trade it for anything. It was great.....Wish you all could have been there...
