gala

So we went to the National Congress Center last night for a big "do" held by the company that bought our company. It was nice to hear prez and vp types at the mic welcoming us to their crew... and what a crew!!! 1100 people in a ballroom, dressed to the nines and an exceptionally good vibe rolling around. Honestly, not at all like the experience of going to the formal party our company put on earlier this month at the casino.

The meal was amazing... plates brought to the table and servers brought the food and "served".... beats the crap out of a buffet, yo. But mostly it was memorable for the "dressed up" zone... my darling Z looked like a million bucks and my whole team was there to share the dinner with me.

(That's Pierre, Shawn, moi and Luc... those guys are basically a threesome of more tech brains than you can easily imagine... excellent co-workers, and really... excellent men.)

Lets see... who else was there... :D


luker and his lovely bride... the "Daniel Mommy" herself... reens

... and burntflowers... Tara... was attending with a coworker that I regret not getting a picture of... Keith... who looked smashing in his suit. I mean, it's just that I'm not used to seeing this guy all dolled up. :D As for Tara... she looked amazing.


And once again, I managed to get a picture of the christmas elf girl (see a children's christmas party post back in December) looking beautiful with my bell-of-the-ball... :D


We socialized a bit... and still managed to get home in time to find children still awake (at 11:00!!) and get ourselves in front of more sopranos (it's an addiction I tell you!!) before bed.

A really nice night... I like those... Life manages to serve up some nice mental drinks sometimes... :D
(a happy corto be here!)
