office party

Since Abbey and I have birthdays within a few days of each other we had an office holiday party themed birthday celebration.  It was pretty surreal.  I don’t know how many folks had ever actually had office jobs, but everyone fell into their persona really amazingly.  Even people who didn’t dress up adopted hyper-realistic office personalities.  By the middle of the party, it was a little akward, because I think everyone was ready to stop acting and just hang out with people that they liked, but the weight and momentum of the characters was so strong that it was like people had forgotten how to interact with each other as real people.  Still, it made me appreciate how creative my friends are and made me imagine what a bizarro reality would be like if we had all gotten office jobs instead of our current lives.

More photos from the event are up on the terrorware gallery.
