And the award goes to...

I am the standing winner of the best job ever award (at least at the beginning of the month, when I work an average of 86 minutes a day), but I'm passing the torch just for today. My pretend husband, Chris, (read the "Domestic Bliss" entry for an explanation of that reference) has a tree-trimming party at his law firm today for which everyone is knocking off at 3 p.m. to hang out and decorate. Here's the kicker, the event involves copious amounts of alcohol... basically, he's being paid to drink on the job. (I've been paid to do a lot of things... um, wait, that's not what I meant... oh, forget it). Anyway, congratulations on the win, Chris!

Congratulations, Chris! It's not easy to wrest this most dubious honor from KAT.

When I used to work at "the rinky-dink hometown cable network" I was stuck doing Air Operations for an NHL game at midnight on January 1. To celebrate the New Year, my boss offered each employee a shot of his/her choice: Jaegermeister, Goldschlager or Absolut. When I told him I really shouldn't be drinking on the job during a live event, he smiled and said, "It's not real alcohol." I believed him and downed my faux-schlager - and it burned all the way down. *cough cough* Smooth!

And then he laughed his ass off. "Happy New Year!"

Wow, I didn't realize people were still trying to pull the "it's not real alcohol" trick anymore. Do they even sell "fake alcohol"? (especially in real bottles?!?) You earned that burning sensation, my friend!

The shots were in Dixie Cups, so I had to trust him. That and the fact that he was my boss.

i just talked to chris, and i think he's relinquishing his title as he drives all over the state today going to closings that are getting cancelled anyway.

today j takes the award. he decided he wasn't going in because of the snow and didn't bother to check to see if we actually had snow until 7.
