Last year I got all dolled up in Utilikilt and collar and ended up with my co-workers trying to sneak a peek when I wasn't looking. Deborah accompanied me, wearing a full-length P.V.C. (or some other artificial material) gown. The event was boring and the food was tasteless. Went to the Mercury afterward.
I'd rather not go, but politically speaking, it's a good idea to show my face for a little bit. So I shall do much the same as last year. Get dolled up (in something other than Utilikilt perhaps), make an appearance, and then go to the Mercury (where I hear it's vulture23's birthday). The theme is
Carnival in Rio which means we are supposed to be colorful. I have nothing particularly colorful. Maybe an afternoon trip shopping downtown to get more colorful clothing. No date this year though. No way do I want to subject anyone to that again.
