Or Holiday parties depending on your company. All of the people in my office are Christian or were brought up celebrating Christmas so we call it a Christmas party. It isn't even a party really. It is dinner at a nice restaurant and the company pays. I don't go to nice restaurants often so it will be nice. That reminds me, I was going to dig out my mini-tree this year and put it in my office. I don't have a lot of room in my RV for a tree and I wouldn't want the cat to attack it while I am gone.
At last year's dinner I decided to eat my entire meal instead of saving half of it. I also ordered dessert (after all, it was free!) and ate that too. Then I felt sick all night. This year I am determined to pace myself, eat half of my entree and take the rest home. They sent out an email with the restaurant menu so that we can plan ahead. Most of it was seafood or veal which isn't to my liking. The last thing on the menu was filet mignon for $25. Well, I'm not paying so I guess I'll be ordering that one. I don't think I have ever ordered a $25 meal. That's a quarter of my food budget for the month! Too bad filet mignon is so small. I'm going to have to fill up on the appetizers. Would it look bad if I took a big purse full of tupperware and plastic baggies to carry off the leftovers? :) I have an idea, I need a date who doesn't eat much...then I can take his food home too!
