You’re a lady, I’m a man, now here’s what I propose…
At the team lunch Friday we were talking about a lot of stuff, which is really what an office holiday outing should be all about. Talking about anything but work. I didn’t attend my company’s party because I typically only work with 6 or so people directly and few more indirectly. While I do smile and greet people and talk to people around the office, there’s been no real build up of camaraderie outside my core group. So I don’t feel the need to get dressed up and go to a party that seems needlessly scheduled and is often at a location where I’d need a car to attend!
Anyway, Betsy and I were talking about holiday tunes and we both agreed that we couldn’t stand Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”, though I admitted that I like hearing it once and then no more. That conversation reminded me of a bit from the last episode of The Peter Serafinowicz Show where as part of his “Ringo Remembers” series, he did a fantastic parody of the ubiquitous video with a rather unexpected slant. Serafinowicz has been praised for his ability to mimic each member of The Beatles perfectly. This isn’t the best sketch to show that off, but hopefully the show will make it to BBC America so everyone can know him for more than being the voice of Darth Maul.
I’ll be putting together my apartment again today after yet another round of exterminations as ordered by the condo board. Much as I love this apartment, the building’s condo board and management company are working my last nerves. I was talking to Michael and when my lease is up for renewal, I’m going to have to give some serious thought about staying.
