our stage hands union wanted to have a holiday party but it was absolutely impossible to schedule one in december since there are so many holiday-related shows that we all work during that month. so, they decided to have it in january. the only problem with having a party in january is that when you get a big snow storm no one wants to come out. even though the weather wasn't great and i really wasn't feeling well, ryan wanted to show face at the party for a little while so we pulled ourselves together and went over for a bit. only 17 people made it to the party (it really should have been postponed). at least the ice sculpture was cool.
