Work Christmas party!

Since the restaurant was closed Monday for Wellington's anniversary day, we had our work Christmas party...good times were had by all, and everyone was quite well behaved **cough**bullshit**cough**.

Not all photos are suitable for publication at this time.

We started the day with a dim sum lunch. Quite nice, though some dishes were a bit suspect (beef tripe...pig intestines...)




Lunch was followed by lawn bowling and many pitchers flowed. Lawn bowling is similar to curling--you are trying to get your balls closest to a small white one at the other end of the lawn. We had a round-robin tournament, in which myself and my teammate, Viviana, crashed and burned. But it was fun nonetheless.





We followed that up with a pool tournament at the pub down the street. Then we walked back into town. The night pretty much devolved from there...



In other news, New Zealand's Windy City is certainly living up to its name today...the wind is absolutely blasting through town. My pizza was nearly taken from my hands. Also, let it be known that New Zealand's ozone is pretty much crap, so it's quite easy to burn--just ask the patches on my legs that didn't get sunscreen at the beach the other day.
