Happy Hour, Happy Cheeseday

This week, I met with my boss for my annual performance review. The last year has been kinda tough as I fell in and out of love with the company. I’ve been alternately slacking off, having VERY short bursts of motivation, and generally getting ever more snarky with my clients.

Their verdict: My boss thinks I’m awesome (???)

My verdict: I can probably slack off for another year.


To celebrate year-end (fiscally), we had a Happy Hour get together on Thursday starting at 5pm. Considering I was working all evening, I wouldn’t be able to make it. Still, I went down to the bar for 20 minutes to say hi and have a ginger ale. Then I went back upstairs to the office.

At 7pm, a few colleagues wandered upstairs with their drinks in plastic cups. They wanted to know if I wanted a drink too.

“No thanks, I have to finish working.”
“Aw, come on! I’ll go get you something. What do you want?”
“Nothing. Maybe I’ll see you later.”

At 8:30, they came back, and this time they didn’t bother with plastic cups. Their drinks were in glass tumblers straight from the bar.

“Haha.You guys all look like Julian from The Trailer Park Boys.”
“That guy from The Trailer Park Boys who always has a drink in his hand.”
“You’re drunk. Get out of here.”
“Later, sucka.”

At 11pm they were back, this time with the Barmaid in tow. They introduced me to her.

“Nice to meet you. Who’s watching the bar?”
“Ah, that bar runs itself.”
“I’ll bet. Enjoy the tour.”
“I will. This office is swank.”
“No it isn’t. The bar sounds better.”
“Come down after. First drink is on the house.”

I finally managed to pass by the bar at 12:15 and they were still there, and by “there” I mean shit-faced. The barmaid made good on the free drink. And the next one. And the one after that. And…I sort of lost count. How the hell does this place stay in business? Anyway, what a great bar. Thank god I had the day off on friday.


Speaking of year-ends and crap, guess what else it is?

It’s WWFC’s birthday, or cheeseversary, or whatever you want to call it! Yep. WWFC has been around for 1 year as of July 16, 2010.
