Forum Christmas Party!!!

Postby Margo » 15 Dec 2010, 13:32

In fine tradition, it is time to wreck Nathan's office with a wild party. Even better, it's a new office! Wow, corner office, perfect view of the Golden Gate Bridge, real leather upholstery, a replacement for the Mont Blanc pen we destroyed at one of the earlier parties. LOOK! The space monkeys have their very own adjoining offices! We can just open up all the doors and make one big party space.

Okay, so I've booked some tap-dancing reindeer for entertainment and got Cthulhu to put on a Santa suit. We can sit in his lap and tell him what gifts we want and have our photos taken!

Cheekychook, we're going to need eleventy dozen holiday cookies.

Oh, um, Nathan, I hate to ask, but when were you planning on leaving your office for the holidays? Why do I ask? No reason.

I'm good with the reindeer, as long as they stay away from the spiked eggnog, but I am NOT sitting on that creepy guy's lap.

We'd better keep an eye on Watcher (hee hee - watching the Watcher) in case he gets crazy with the egg nog and starts building false walls with marker boards across the office. (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2974&start=10 for those who are lost.)

Oooh, look! Nathan's stash of cool tech gadgets!! I get dibs on anything involving a lightsaber, katanas, or any other ninja/Star Wars goodies.

Hey, does this lightsaber work? <whoosh zoom zoom CRASH> Umm...Nathan...I hope you weren't too fond of that lamp...

I shall stand across the room and wave politely, but I'm not sitting on Cthulhu's lap. That way leads to insanity. I shall encourage others to do so, of course, for my amusement.

I will bring little silvery presents for everyone and fancy hot chocolate...to be spiked at everyone's leisure. Also: Mistletoe.

Well, it looks like Nathan's desk is great for tap-dancing reindeer, but the coffee table...not so much. Reindeer are much bigger in real life than in the animated Christmas specials. So maybe dios4vida could use the lightsaber to chop up the coffee table remains for the roaring fire. Got chestnuts!

I also got just over 5 miles of sparkly garland and 15 pounds of tinsel for the tree. Where to put the tree... It's kinda big. Maybe the skylight opens. Ooh, it didn't. Careful of the glass. On the upside I got a light-up angel treetopper that planes will be able to see.

Can someone get me a cup of the spiked eggnog while I open these bags of tinsel? Oh, or maybe the spiked cocoa! Oh, or maybe both! Nevermind, where are the punch bowls??? Oh, I see, by the 12 or so empty brandy bottles. Excellent!

LOL. I wouldn't suggest it unless you're Beowulf. My house is home to the Grendel monster, 130 pounds of overly affectionate bullmastiff.

I agree. Though I see no reason not to do a pub crawl to Margo's afterward. And I'm thinking Quill's place needs to be the stop after Margo's.

I say stick a pair of antlers on him and call him Rudolph. He'll blend right in with the other reindeer.

HA! He probably would. Instead of tap-dancing, though, he'd be the one gnawing on an expensive piece of furniture because I forgot his yellow bouncy chew toy.

But wait! It's time for Christmas carols!!! How about "Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire"? "Walking Round in Women's Underwear"? "Wreck the Malls"? I know!!! "The Chimney Song"! Anyone around here do a good kid voice?

Nah, we've gotta do "The Twelve Pains of Christmas" cause that's my favorite! And then we need Alvin & the Chipmunks' Christmas song. SOMEONE GRAB THE HELIUM!! "Christmas, Christmas, time is here...time for toys and time for cheer..."

My vote's for Nathan's new office. Maybe we can even surprise him at work and make him relive his days from The Village People http://forums.nathanbransford.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2576

I'll even treat everyone to some TurBacon http://forums.nathanbransford.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2866

RSVP, so I can place the order ;)

Oh yeah, we definitely have to crash Nathan's first, and enjoy all the shiny gadgets. We can test if they're waterproof by dipping them in the brandy (oooh, wait, there's none left already!)

I brought some tourtière, a regional speciality. Imagine a freakin' huge meat pie, but with little cubes of potatoes instead, and the meat's from hunting. No, that's NOT where the missing reindeer went. I pinky swear!
