A very nice client has invited me and a couple of other contractors to his organisation's Christmas lunch. It's in a nice restaurant. I don't want to go in with one arm as long as the other, but I don't want to make a big deal about bringing something either. Any ideas? He will be the only person I know there (his colleague is a new recruit I've met once, and one of the other contractors I know vaguely through a social connection). I was thinking of maybe getting some fancy Christmas crackers?
Crackers is a great idea - and some party poppers. And just in case it turns out to be fun, take a pack of post it notes in your pocket so you can play the "who am I" game. You're the life and soul for twenty five quid.
Thanks Gonzo. I'm not sure how boozy it will be so I'm not sure well get to party games at least I hope to fuck we won't. I'll find some fancy crackers tomorrow and see if there are any other bits and pieces I can pick up.
