We dressed up for the annual Xmas party, and met a few friends there. The first 2H or so were actually pretty nice, we had a chance to talk and enjoy the good food, and then it happened, again, the dreadful stupidly loud music that mostly ruined the rest of the evening by making sure that you couldn't talk to anyone without shouting a few words at a time in their ear.
To be honest, I'm getting tired of this 'without loud music to drown out the entire room and dancing or nothing'. It's the same thing every year :( It's really too bad because it was otherwise a nice party.
Some went to hide in the small room next door, the scotch bar, but it was way too small for the number of people wanting to hide there.
Since talking was mostly impossible at that point, Jennifer wanted to try some fake gambling, so we played some blackjack where I 'won' ten times my original bid before we had enough of the noise and just went home.
