My holidays have now consisted of one less anxiety ridden night

There are few things in life that give me true, honest to goodness anxiety. 1 - haven't to pray in church. 2 - having to play Cranium (not a lie) and 3 - a work Christmas party.

Why oh why would a work Christmas party give me anxiety? Well, imagine you are single and you get an email with this line in it in November:

Please RSVP no later than December 1st stating if you will be attending and the name of your guest.

I bolded the part that gives me anxiety. Seriously, it's kind of the worst thing to have to deal with. The anxiety of bringing a date to a work function is almost more than I can handle.

And so this year I decided that I would attend the party alone. I am pretty sure this is the best decision I made in 2009. I mean, Agency X went snow tubing for our party. And we all know, I am no snow bunny. I looked ridiculous. I had make-up smeared down my face and my hair was matted to my head. Clearly, I was the most attractive employee Agency X has. I think they are very happy that they hired me.

And now, if I can figure out how to not ever play Cranium again, I will consider my life complete.

Oh my goodness, I'm so glad to learn there are others who hate Cranium too. Worst game ever.
