Waiting for another workman who promised to arrive at 9.30.
Then it's Xmas shopping with prof
Then it's his works dinner
Nose to nipple with academics
Do academics have "works dinners"? I guess they don oily overalls and safety helmets, simplify their vocabularies and drink foaming pints of ale before heading to the nearest strip club. You'll have fun when the conga dancing starts.
Some of the 'demics are surely a bit interesting.
I have been to a few nurses' Christmas parties - they are a bit more wild than academics I would imagine.
the party sounds boring; feign an illness and don't go.
Well you should be taller ......
And the highlight of that might be, waiting for the workman.
I know someone who has five different jobs (to make ends meet). I wonder if she has five Xmas parties?
I used to like the office party. Fun days in the 70s and 80s.
It's tough at the top ! XXXX
Hey....keep your nose to yourself!
I only liked the Christmas parties that my husband threw for his employees ... because I got to plan them :)
An evening chockablock with academics? Yikes.
I had two dinners with car guys, you can have fun with the professors. LOL
Very worried when I saw that title. Thought it was going to be a photo of "bits"....frightening thought
I confess that I was a little disappointed.
Oh dear. I hope your workman arrived when he said and did not disturb the day too much.
Winnie must be going insane waiting for the 'workman'.
Cheer up. Christmas comes but once a year (thank goodness)
Even though I love many things about Christmas I'm so glad when it is over
Some academics must be worth knowing, after all the Prof is one :)
You may have said so in the past and I just missed it, but what is the Prof a professor of?
Health care sciences
I'm sure you will have had a lovely time, as if you met any condescending academics you will have enjoyed dragging them down to your superior blowsy level. Good for you if you did.
Have UK universities cut back on the quality of the catering for staff functionstoo? Stingy now, the good stuff is saved for the administrators!!
Uf. Did lots of those nose-to-nipples events (although I never knew that's what they were called). Didn't enjoy many (any?) of them.
Sounds fun, photos please! Academic gowns swirling on the dance floor?
I love all comments Except abusive ones from arseholes
