movie trivia: "my fellow nerds and i will return to the nerdery with our calculators."

every december i eagerly anticipate the annual bain & co. christmas party. it's a time to break out my little black dress and pretend that i'm more than just a meager legal assistant living in suburbia. in the past the party has entertained us with caricature sketches, handwriting analyses, and even a little faux gambling. this year, although entertaining in its own right, was much different.


the 2007 bain hk christmas party played on the high school clique themes of the hugely popular disney feature, "high school musical" (come on, we've all seen it and secretly enjoyed it and perhaps even developed a very minor crush on zac efron). many groups were represented at the party... the goths, the preppies, the cheerleaders, the japanese anime (i don't remember seeing those guys in the halls of good ole weber), and the group to which matthew and i were appropriately assigned, the nerds. we tried our best and made use of what limited resources we have here in hong kong (those are all my normal clothes and accessories... kind of unfortunate that they really pull off the nerd-look quite well). matt's alfalfa hairdo was a big hit.


matt and i agreed that the food, company, and party in general was still thoroughly enjoyable although this year was not quite as flashy as those from the past. it's just as well anyway... there was no earthly way that little black dress was gonna fit this year.

haha, I wish Jer's company would have been some fun theme. I was SO UNCOMFORTABLE in my "business casual" outfit. My dress clothes just don't fit anymore!!

i wish i could have come to hong kong. i missed you in dallas. our party was at a good location, but the food was not so great and i didn't get my butt sketched. no extra fun things, just loud music. i truly did miss you!

I absolutely love your costumes. That party was just a little different than the usual "little black dress" Christmas party. But looked like so much fun.

You guys look totally cool! How fun to do a 'theme' party! Sideline: GH3 has me hanging.... I was looking for some songs I expected to be on there and are not. But I think I could find them on GH 'rocks the 80's'. Email me sometime - I'd love to get into a discussion with you on 'rock band' - got some tasty bits to share.

old me.
