>At work, I heard about a small title company that is going to shut down soon. It sounds like the real estate downturn has now jumped from mortgage companies to title companies. I suppose it’s the next inevitable step. I just hate to hear about people losing their jobs around the holidays.

Speaking of work, my company Christmas party is this week. I was hoping to get out of it, but someone had the brilliant idea to have it in the office at 5:00, so there really is no way to avoid it. Although, if they “send us home early” or whatever, I might just not come back. Then again I’ll have to explain my absence and I’m a very good liar.

It might be interesting to see how people would react to the truth…”Actually, I was too depressed to come back. The mere idea of having to attend yet another Christmas party by myself amongst a sea of couples sent me spinning into a shame spiral, which took me 8 hours and a quart of Chocolate Fudge Brownie to get over.”

    >Heh! I’ll be at one of those too on Friday (husband’s). I’m not going to mine since it’s in Washington on the same day – thank God. I did Britney karaoke there back in 2003, it got caught on video, and I’ve never been able to live it down. I just have to behave myself at my husband’s surely-to-be-dull party for a couple hours then I can come home and drink myself silly. Company parties are no fun for anyone (single or married) – being on your best behavior sucks.
