Farewell to Angie/Christmas Staff Party

So, another staff member has left our Dept. We celebrated with Angie twice in one day before she got to leave us. Angie is an extremely popular girl. In the year she has been with us, she has made a lot of really close friends. You can't help but love her. She is always making everyone laugh. Every day is like one big party when she is around. We will all miss her dearly. I'm sure she will miss us too as she became teary-eyed upon receiving a giant card, cake and assorted gifts from us.

After the big send-off at the office, we all celebrated again at a Christmas Staff Party at the Duke of Devon where we all had a Jolly Good Time. There were a lot of people there with good food & drinks. It was nice chatting it up with a bunch of folks from some other Departments that I hadn't seen in a long while. Of course the Reorg Gang had a wild time as usual. Our Dept didn't win as many door prizes as last year. We did get one winner though. Lisa was delighted to have won some fine booze. This Christmas Party brought back good memories of last year's party when good ole Jonathan was with us, back when he was the life of the party. Here's to you, Jonathan. I hope you are ripping it up over there in Taiwan!
