Holidays At Work

office-party

Holiday time at an office job is just the best. Especially if you work at an entertainment industry office. They are giving us 2 weeks paid time off for Christmas and New Years. How amazing is that???

Last night we had our office holiday party and since I’m only 4 months into this job… I was a little hesitant to go. Nothing more awkward than standing around a bunch of people you dont know that well. How do you make conversation that doesnt feel forced and uncomfortable??

Luckily a few coworkers from my department decided to go last minute so I had a few people to hang out with. It turned out great because just being there allowed me to mingle with other coworkers I didnt know very well. And with an open bar and appetizers being passed around on trays, how can you not have a great time?? I was pleasantly surprised that a few co-workers (assistants and agents) had very nice things to say to me and it made me feel very appreciated. I’m making more of a positive impact here than I realized. 🙂

I will be heading home for a week to celebrate Christmas then back in LA the second week I have off. I will try my best to keep this blog updated with all the festivities. xoxo

The office right now, during the holidays, is jammed packed with good food. Imagine having over 100 clients and almost all of them give some kind of gift basket to the office. It is out of control! We’ll pretty much have goodies until March. 

Today my boss walked around passing out mini chocolate chip cupcakes. And they tasted like HEAVEN. Seriously…way better than Sprinkles cupcakes. I had two. :-/

Then within 5 minutes he walked around again with another fresh box of pastries and I had this cinnamon soft cookie filled with some kind of amazing cream. It was epic. Orgasm in my mouth! 

If you’ve seen me lately and you’ve thought to yourself “oh boy…Tess has put on a few lbs.” Well this is why. Holidays at the office!! Gah!! See you at the gym January 1st with all the other millions of people.

WANTED: Holiday Girlfriend – 28 (mission district)

Date: 2011-11-14, 8:10PM PST
Reply to: Let me be clear. I want a girlfriend. But, I don’t really want a girlfriend.

I just want one for the holidays.

Let’s recognize something. The holidays suck, especially for us single people. All of your coupled friends are going to be doing couple things: snuggling by the fire, going to dinner at each others’ parents houses, blahblahbarf.

Let’s recognize another thing. Deep down inside, you don’t want to be alone for the holidays. You want someone to do all of those cute snuggly things with, someone to get fat and keep warm next to (let’s also recognize that it’s getting fucking cold here), and someone to accompany you to your friends’ coupley holiday parties so they don’t keep thinking you’re a loser destined for permanent solo status.

But, you’ve spent all year working on your career / training for charity bike rides / getting drunk and haven’t had the time or inclination to track down and capture a boyfriend. And even if you did, you’re not really sure you’d want to keep him after the holidays are over, anyway.

The solution:
Be my girlfriend for the holidays. And only for the holidays.

How it works:
You reply with a picture and a brief bio (250 words max. To give you an idea, this posting is 499). If it seems like a good fit we’ll set up a casual mini-date (coffee, beer, or whatever). If that’s a success and we’re both feeling it, we’ll date until 11:59PM, January 2nd, 2012. After that we can still be friends (unless we hate each other, then we can downshift to the occasional drunken booty call).

The benefits:
• You have someone to keep you company on these witch-tit-cold San Francisco nights. Did I mention I’m an excellent cuddler? (I have references.)
• I like to cook. Especially for others. Nothing too fancy, but always tasty and satisfying. As long as you’re an omnivore, you win.
• Having done it professionally for some years to pay for school, I know my way around a bar. Same goes for wine cellars and beer coolers. Homemade winter warmers? Done.
• Hate holiday music? Me too. Seeing as every other establishment or event you step into will be playing it, I’ll spare you the excess.
• Love taking photos? Sweet. Let’s wear gaudy holiday attire and make ridiculous Xmas postcards to send your friends and family. Just for the lulz.
• Worried about finding someone to kiss on New Year’s Eve who doesn’t look (or sound) like Sloth’s cousin? Boom! Got you covered.

About Me:
28 years old, small business owner, active (cyclist, surfer, snowboarder), outgoing, easy on the eyes.
Not About You (aka Dealbreakers or, Don’t Bother if You Exhibit the Following):
Heavy drug use, laziness, prudishness, still in love with old boy or girlfriend from years past (or if you secretly are, at least have the damn decency to not blab on about it).

Interested? Then send your pic and bio and get this ball rolling.
