Company Christmas Party

weather: partly cloudy
outside: 4.1°C
mood: giggly
Our company Christmas party was last Friday (the 9th).

Backing up slightly: while in Taiwan, I had my hair partially permed. My Mother-in-Law's hairdresser, Nicole, gave me really cute curls on the bottom half of my hair when she styled it because she thought I was 16 (BWAHAHAHA!! XD). I liked it, so I got it permed the same way so I wouldn't have to mess with a curling iron. In the dry Canadian winter, curly becomes frizzy unless you specifically fix it. So, in the spirit of Not Caring™, I must look like a dead broom most days at Work.

I thought since this was my first Christmas Party at a new company, I'd make the effort to clean up a bit.

Boy, do I ever clean up well. I clean up SO well that people seriously didn't recognize me. It was the funniest thing. =)

At first, I couldn't quite understand why people were ignoring me. Someone I worked fairly closely with, took a few minutes to realize who I was. I'm in and around the same office, but if I didn't work with them much, they took even longer to recognize me, if at all.

Once it dawned on me that others might not have recognized me at all, it became funny. I felt like I actually had to say who I was and what my job was. "Yeah, I sit in the corner... right behind you. I _work_ with you." XD XD

My own boss didn't talk to me for half the night. I'm really not exaggerating. XD

Re: looking 16
I went to the doctor yesterday and the nurse was taking my blood pressure and noticed my rings.
Nurse: You're married?
Me: Yep
Nurse: I didn't know that. Have you always been married?
Me: (Seriously almost said, "Well, not like since I was born." but deciding that was rude, said,) Yeah, about 3 years.
Nurse: How old are you?
Me: 26
Nurse: Oh, I guess I just never paid attention. You look like you're abou 17.

You've just inspired me to "clean up" for my own Company Party next week! I also dress down at work and I barely even brush my hair before going out the door. I doubt anyone would have trouble recognizing me though... I work in a company of 15 and I think we all know each other *too* well. But I'm still gonna do it! :D

Haha, it's a good way to get the scoop on what people _really_ think of you XD XD

Not with my camera, I'll see if I can get a copy of the one from the co-worker's camera =)

Haha, the same thing has happened to me before. I used to work in a restaurant on weekends and I had an early morning shift, I had to be there for 6:45am on Saturdays. I had a uniform so I really didn't care what I looked like at work.

At the Christmas party, my boss didn't recognize me and thought I was my co-workers date at first. :P

Haha, no one actually asked me if I was "So&so's date" but I could almost hear some of them thinking that I must be someone's wife or girlfriend or something. =D
