EPA Christmas Party

Yesterday, at about 11:30 pm, the Editorial Systems Staff (editorial production assistants) had their annual Christmas party after work, of course, at the office’s multi-purpose hall. Since it started, literally and fashionably late, it lasted til the wee hours of the next morning, ahem, today. My house is a far 50-minute drive from work  so I was able to rest much later than everybody else–besides; I was also still a little giddy so an mad adrenaline rush kept me from sleeping.  It wasn’t  exactly surprising that I’m still a little groggy from the euphoric hangover of last night’s festivities.

Last night, I learned the dynamics of office Christmas party-ing:

1. Everyone wins something–no matter how small. No one leaves empty-handed unless they choose to. Yes, my boss left early and waved his raffle prize.

2. No one gets too old for Pinoy Henyo… and even the seemingly simplest Christmas words and terms can leave the most common-sensical person baffled.

3. You don’t always have to go all out to win a Best Costume–case and point–

This photograph is proof that sincerity and pure excitement can go a long way. LJM was so overwhelmed by our warm welcome that she gave out loads more raffle prizes, including P2000 cash!

when you’re not sure that a best costume prize is going to be handed out. Hahaha.

Anyway, I planned on being a snowflake but my glittery Victoria’s Secret-inspired costume of masking tape and tin foil wasn’t holding up very well. I had the Tree left over from a shoot Jason and I had the day before. I can’t wait to see the finished photos of THAT once Jason’s done with his editing.

Merry Christmas everybody!
