Christmas Party + Writing  
Last night was the office Christmas party, and good God, I have no tolerance left. brumeier can attest to this from Chicago, but some of my coworkers had yet to see what I'm like when allowed to get near rum. Thankfully, they all found it funny and we had a great time; my secret santa present came from one of the kids whom I adore and was very thoughtful, and everyone was cooing over the small lucky kitty that she got for me. Unfortunately it is down in the car still, along with my make up. :/ Hopefully my BB cream & primer aren't rock solid.

I did get a ton of compliments on my outfit and make-up. Working with animals everyday, my look is normally scrubs, sneakers, hair thrown on my head in a bun. If I'm up early, contacts instead of glasses. If I'm up super early, maybe something fun with my hair and a little eyeliner and mascara. I just don't see the point to doing foundation and all the fun stuff when I'm going to be sweating and running around--my patients don't care if my skintone is an even matte--so the party was a nice change from the norm, since I really do enjoy wearing make up. I'm no good with the contouring trend and I prefer the no-makeup look, admittedly, but it's fun now and then to get dressed up.

God, I sound like I have no life. I have friends and I go out, really. :p

Anyway, I got home late and pretty much just fell into bed, so I've spent almost all of today working on fic. I'm up to roughly 1800 words and about two-thirds of the way done. If I keep up the pace I should finish it out tonight and then hopefully I can ask someone to do a beta. I wish I'd been able to work this story from the start of the challenge/event, but I'm enjoying it and hopefully others will too.
