Blackouts and vandalism.

Friday night was the Pretty Girl's company Christmas party. Good food and an open bar made for some good times. Afterwards many of us went down to Kells to drink more Guinness. A couple of the Pretty Girl's friends needed a ride home so when the bar closed we made our way to the parking garage.

We made our way into the garage and drove up to the gate to find it closed with no staff monitoring it. Jake got out of the car and decided to lift up the gate manually, which caused it to bust into pieces. I found this absolutely hilarious, until I realized the garage door was closed. Jake and his gal made their exit as I called security to have them open the door. Funny they didn't notice the broken gate which could've led to a bad scene, but we made our way out of there without incident.

The next evening the Pretty Girl and I headed to Mattbear's for his Holiday party. I had just woken up so I decided to check my messages. Mattbear called and told me the party was cancelled due to the fact that his house was without power. I'm disappointed that I didn't get to taste his annual white hot chocolate goodness.

Indeed, we were very sad about not being able to have the party, as well. It is the first time in...I can't even remember how long...that we haven't had our holiday party.

We may have some winter-time get-together that will include White Hot Chocolate, once things return to some semblance of normal.

Now I don't condone vadalism, but that sounds like it definately would have been a good time. Too bad the party was cancelled, your storms out that way have been brutal this year. We have nothing...
