Holiday Party

Tonight is the holiday party for the office that I work out of.  I traditionally do not go to holiday type parties, but, tonight I am making an exception.

I am not exactly sure why I decided to go.  It should likely be a good time.  I get along with, or actually like most of my co-workers.  It is at a rather fancy hotel downtown, the Palliser.  Very fancy.  I am sure that the food will be good, but I am not a huge fan of REALLY fancy stuff.  It looks nice on the plate but rarely fills you up.  Guess I will see.

I needed to purchase something to wear.  I do have a suit, but is is very lightweight, not good for a late Fall in Calgary for sure.  It also has a couple of chew marks on it from an un-named Blonde coloured dog that I have been known to frequent with.

So, last week, I drop into Moore’s.  They have good stuff at generally good prices.

I decided on a sport jacket.  The sales guy was helpful for sure.  I looked at one that I REALLY liked.  Looked at the price tag – $499.  OK, well, that is a bit much (a lot of a bit) so I put it down.  The sales guy suggested checking to see if it was on sale – IT WAS.  Marked down to $119.  Nice.

I picked out two dress shirts – both an off-shoot of orange.  Buy one, get the second for 1/2 price.  I also grabbed two scarves, also buy one get one 1/2 off and two ties – same deal there.  In total, it was a little over $350 taxes in which was pretty good, considering that the original jacket price was $500.

So, I will be decked out pretty well I guess.  I mean, I am not wearing the orange tux from Dumb and Dumber, but I will be OK.
