Cheers to You, Fudge!

DeNae's Salute to Fudge, Day 10:

Tonight is the office Christmas party at a swanky downtown hotel.  This is an annual favorite for a number of reasons:  First, it costs a mere $150, which of course everyone can afford at this time of year.  And second, it gives you the opportunity to watch people drink themselves stupider than compost, while you are required to sip Diet Coke all night because 1) you're enough of a menace to society stone sober, and 2) you're pretty sure you'll go to hell if you join the chowderheads at the punch bowl.

Of course, you can't call them 'chowderheads' to their faces, mostly because their faces are currently concealed by a tree skirt someone oh, so cleverly snatched from the hotel Christmas display. 

Wrap a several slices of fudge in wax paper and smush it into your little black clutch.  And keep your iPhone stuffed in *ahem* "Victoria's Pushup Pocket," camera at the ready.

If anyone asks what you're up to, just tell them you're the Designated Blackmailer.

If I had to pay to go to an office Christmas party....I would never go.
Nothing says Merry Christmas like drunken co-workers.

Victoria's Pocket is still making me smile! :) Paying for an office party, wow that's a new one. My husbands office takes them all out for a lunch next week and then the attorneys and their +1 will be partying at my house that weekend but there will be none of those shenanigans going on. Hmm... now where did I put my secret webcams?!?!

Wait, is that for real? You had to pay out of pocket for a work party?

Oh nononononono.

You can tell the boss I do not approve.

Every single one of you fudge posts make me laugh. Paying your own way...not sure if that's better or worse than my one boss who wouldn't let us bring our spouses. And we'd have the party at 3:00 or 4:00 so he could get the lunch prices. Oh and no alcohol allowed for those who wanted it.

I'll be pack'n this weekend! Of course our employer is the good 'ol US of A, so if ya'll would like to pay, feel free. Otherwise, I'll be paying to party in a castle, and see people lose my respect right before my eyes...sounds festive! Thanks for the fudgie idea.
