It’s been eleven years since the bluebird of bitterness was hatched, and Bob, Nan, Eve, Ada, Hannah, and Otto all agreed that we were overdue for a party with the office staff!
This is Blanche, who works in the mail room. She was in charge of the invitations, which she sent out via Twitter.
Ada hired a photographer for the evening. Unfortunately, his camera was broken, so the only pictures we have are what was caught on the hotel’s security cameras.
This is Seymour, our Avian Resources guy. He made the party hats, and everyone agreed he did a great job!
This is the caterer Eve hired. He was recommended to her by her hairdresser’s boyfriend. Or was it her next-door neighbor’s parole officer? I forget….
No one knows who this kid is. She just happened to be passing through the hotel courtyard while the party was going on. She stopped long enough to snap a few pictures, then moved along. Otto thought she might be from the local TV station.
Smoking wasn’t allowed in the hotel, so Leonard and Marvin had to go up on the roof when they wanted a smoke.
Hubert and Horace are our branch managers. Nan put them in charge of entertainment.
They hired this trio to provide the music. They were good, but loud! My ears are still ringing.
Everyone raved about how good the food was — especially the bird’s nest cupcakes. Yum!
To no one’s surprise, Ralph drank a little too much. Ralph is the reason we always have a designated flier.
Otto got a stomach ache from eating too many cupcakes. He claims he only had two, but Otto is notoriously bad at counting, especially where food is concerned.
By then Bob was having trouble staying awake, so everyone agreed it was time to call it a day.
