Today is my department's Christmas party. So, how do a bunch of English professors par-tay? We go to lunch at a buffet. Yup. Doesn't get more wild than that. Of course, last year, I managed to get somewhat hammered at our buffet luncheon, but I have a list of chores for this afternoon (throwing a x-mas party for our friends tonight), so I don't think I will be partaking in any BEvERages this afternoon.
