Office Christmas Party

We are having our office Christmas party in San Francisco, and to be honest, I think this is my first Christmas party since Chuck E. Cheese, which strangely enough I remember being really fun.

I’m pretty excited but also nervous. I don’t want to be a wallflower but I also don’t know to embarrass myself. Could I have made that sound any more generic? What I’m trying to convey is that I would love to challenge someone to a whiskey shot, but while it may show them a little bit about me, I think it is a bad idea. I want to talk to people, but PC conversations and conversations with women don’t come as naturally to me as I’d like.

Man… Well, thank you Internet God and your lovely wisdom. Here is a Forbes article that discusses this issue. I will be taking its advice – and look damn good. Key points of this article:

  • Don’t drink too much.
  • Eat before drinking.
  • Don’t be a wallflower.
  • Don’t put your guard down.
  • Have fun.

If Marcia Miller had to pick up everything and leave, then she'd make sure to grab a few things before she left. First, the duffel bag is a must, followed by her laptop and iPod. She grabs her journal next, along with every CD she owns - just in case. Miller pulls off the pictures and concert tickets that adorn her walls. A towel is going to be handy too - this she learned from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Finally, she grabs a handful of pens and her trusty AP Stylebook, throws her duffel back over her back and picks up her purse. Closing the door behind her, she leaves her apartment, heads down the stairs and... Well, Miller heads to your office because she's ready to do a job. She is ready to move at a moment's notice, write what needs to be written, edit what needs to be edited, promote what you think the world needs to know about. Miller's got the personality, the skills and the spunk to succeed in any situation. She's not afraid of trying new things or getting her feet wet. Her moto: If an opportunity doesn't present itself, then create one.

    I share your fears, Marcia! I’ve been worrying about what to wear and chat about all month. The Forbes article does help; thanks for sharing it!
