More Party Pictures!

Thankfully there were no more Line of Duty death notifications in my email box when I got home last night after working my 16-hour shift and I've got my fingers crossed that there won't be any more for some time to come. It breaks my heart every time I get one of those things as I know that some poor person somewhere has given their life while upholding the law. There's that certain amount of trepidation every time I open one, too, so it's a always a relief not to find one waiting for me.

Because my last post was such a sober one, I wanted to use this post as the opportunity to show off some more pictures from Saturday night's employee party. Mo requested "pictures of the hot stud" and Mimi wanted pictures of the hand-kissing event but there were none taken and I rather doubt I'm going to be able to assemble everyone for a retake! There is, however, one picture in the following slideshow of myself and JM, the young EMT (or "hot stud" as Mo called him!) I danced with. It's a pretty close close-up that I almost wasn't going to publish and then thought, "oh what the heck, why not?, post the thing"! Personally I don't think that anyone looks all that great in a close close-up so you'll have to take my word for it that JM was much cuter in person and he had a personality that was absolutely charming, to say the least. He certainly made my night!

As for the other people in the pictures, I'll give you a quick run down of the players: Jennifer is a part-time scheduler who works in dispatch with me and whose husband is currently going through the State Police Academy; Chica is a scheduler and her husband Hugo is the excellent sandwich maker I mentioned in Sunday's post; Renee is one of the nicest people ever and is the Employee Scheduling Coordinator who also works in our office; Beth is a full-time scheduler and her boyfriend Bob works as a dispatcher for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe; Russ is a fellow dispatcher; Jenifer is my weekend dispatch partner; and Frank is a part-time dispatcher and Dawn is his girlfriend. Hopefully I didn't leave anyone out!

Mimi, sorry there wasn't more romance - it isn't that you haven't taught me anything, it's just that there were no opportunities available but I did have a lovely evening and a really good time. That counts, right??
