Staff Party

Well, since not much happened today, and since last night really wasn’t all that exciting, I’ll try to keep this entry short. Last night was the staff party at Sammy’s Rec Room, and basically it can be divided into two parts: the eating part, and the gift exchange part.

During the eating part, big plates of chicken fingers, nachos, quesadillas, and chicken wings were brought out for everyone to enjoy. The food was awesome, and I really enjoyed it. I’m not sure what the rest of the food is like, but if it is even half as good as the stuff I had, it’d still be good. This eating part lasted for quite a while, which is good, because food is always meant to be savoured and enjoyed. Scott downed at least 14 chicken wings (that was the number the last I heard), and Oliver dared me to eat a little cup of sour cream, which I then proceeded to do. Garth then dared him to eat the salsa, but that really wouldn’t be much of a challenge, considering that there wasn’t all that much, and it could basically be slurped down. I had to get in and basically scoop the sour cream out with my tongue. It wasn’t all that bad, because, well, it’s just sour cream anyways. But whatever. I finished it up, and continued with my meal. ‘Twas a challenge well taken.

The second part of the night was the gift exchange. We did it in the style where the first person picks a present, then the next person can either steal that one or open a new one. This continues until the last person, who can either open the last present, or can choose from any of the other ones. It was pretty fun. I ended up with a mug and some hot chocolate and stuff. Probably the best present was Oliver’s, which was $10 of Tim Horton’s gift certificates – and a big blown-up picture of himself pointing outward in kind of an Uncle Sam “I want you!” style. It was hilarious; the size of a movie poster, it was certainly the most creative gift there. Nikki opened that one up, and she wanted Oliver to autograph it for her as well, just to make it that much better.

All in all, it was a fun night. The Leafs game was on as well, so we watched them crush the Islanders on a big-screen TV. The final score was 9-6; Scott made the comment that they were getting into baseball scores there. But anyways, I think several of the people went bowling afterwards, but I declined, saying I had school tomorrow and had to go home. I think it was a pretty good party, and more importantly, it involved free food. Two thumbs up for that. But anyways, that’s all I have to say for today, so you can stop reading now. Thanks.
