Fun Day

So I have a bunch of comments to reply to from my last entry, but I probably won't get to them until tomorrow. I also want to add a bit more to that post, after seeing bzzinglikeneon do a sum up of her fandom life too.

But I just wanted to make a post, because I had a really fun day today. I'm not sure what it's like elsewhere, but in Canada, March 31st is government year end, so for the past month, the Customer Service Centre where I work has been going crazy trying to make sure that things are ordered and delivered (or at least billed) by today. Because it's such a crazy time, management had most of this month as casual dress, so we all got to wear jeans to work, and today, was sort of a party day. They had a music theme, and encouraged everyone to dress up. I feel like a big stick in the mud, because I didn't dress up, but since I was gone all weekend, I just didn't have time to arrange anything. I did bring my sax in though, and set it up as decoration for my cubical.

Then at lunch, they turned the meeting rooms downstairs into music rooms. One had games of Guitar Hero going on, I spent most of my time in the karaoke room, but did take time to visit the Dance Dance Revolution room. Then when I got back upstairs, the supervisors went around with ice cream and a big cart of toppings to put on it (I put caramel sauce, peanuts, sprinkles and whipped cream on mine, but there were a ton of other options).

I work in the Contracts department, which is technically part of Customer Service, but it's on the other side of the building, and for the most part it's on it's own, so my supervisor had a little something planned for us too. At around 3 we all went into the caf and tried to break open a couple pinatas. I was a bit fat loser, who not only missed the pinata, but managed to hit *myself* in the *stomach* while I missed.

Then when I got home, I was very proud of myself, I went through my huge piles of papers (seriously, one was taking over my desk, and one was an entire drawer of my desk) and put a ton of stuff in the recycling. You can actually see the top of my desk! It's a miracle! (Ok, credit where credit's due, my mom cleaned it this weekend while I was gone, I just got rid of my pile of papers).

And lastly, it's my aunt and uncles 25th wedding anniversary coming up, and my mom wanted to play some of the songs that were popular the year they were married, 1983. I have a list of the top 100 songs, do any of you have any of these? I don't use any P2P programs, and I only have one comm on my flist with music, and it's not really a music comm. I'm looking them up, but if anyone here has any of these, and would be willing to upload it, or has a suggestion of a place to go, that would be awesome.
