we got another holiday dinner hosted by the office of education this year. it was actually a step up from last year – we had it in the holiday inn and the buffet was fancy and full of western fare. the standard turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing were a hit. we ate a ton and enjoyed time with friends. afterwards, we braved the cold and wandered into a coffeeshop for warm drinks and lots of laughs. thanks for the dinner, epik!
