Working in a university (phd student/research) has it benefits :) .. so I/we started with
- xmas lunch with just our own group .. extending until late night
- evening drinks with people from just our floor, to have more collaboration/interaction .. turned out be a whole night affair
- xmas party from the CS department .. extending until 7 in morning and for some other friends, going on until 7 in evening of following day :)
- mould wine n mince pies evening from student advisor at our dept.
- xmas party from the research lab i work in
- after xmas parties of people who i knw in other departments.. eg. conway
- and yesterday xmas/new-year's party by a friend
this is all in last 4 weeks, along with work n presentations, along with some drink evening with colleagues on odd days also; can imagine why i am sick of going to another one of those.. next week, am sure there is something from friends in other dept. but i have TO avoid going there. Thou' all of them were great fun. One of the best's :) times .. thanks all ..
