Happy Holidays, from WDFA

For any new employee, the company holiday party is HUGE stress provoker.  What to wear?  Who to bring?  How do I annihilate this shrimp skewer without drawing attention to myself?

When I think of company get-togethers, a stuffy, judgmental atmosphere full of awkward conversation is what comes to mind. Luckily for me (and I think I speak for all the newbies here), I didn’t have to worry a second about the WDFA holiday extravaganza.  Considering the fact that I have a blast at the office on any given day, it was safe to assume getting together with everyone outside of a work setting would only be better.

Upon arriving, by boat I might add, at our floating oasis, I knew I was in for an exciting night.  The sway of the tiny island venue was a little disorienting at first, but after finding my sea legs, I was good to go.  The top of the restaurant’s light house offered some spectacular city views for those who felt like taking a break from the revelries below.  Not to mention, who didn’t love the creepy pirate statue?  In true WDFA fashion, the attire ranged from “Island Liz” to “Suave Sergio” and everything in between.  Complete with one of Raj’s famous inspirational pep talks and delicious eats and drinks galore, it all seemed to go by way too fast.

When it was all said and done, I’d say it was a successful night.  We all made it home alive with only minor scrapes and bruises, which, by our standards, is pretty impressive.

Here’s to surviving my first WDFA holiday experience!
