Arcordia Xmas Party - 1
Here are the pictures that I
took at the Arcordia Xmas Party. It was pretty wild. Here's
the proof. Apologies to all those who I forced into the camera's
glare and asked to do stupid things.
Some places have business
casual at work, we have a formal dress code.
Anna, Carol and the Official
Photographer (as taken by the drunken unofficial photographer)
Carol and Cathie doing the
Ruth and .....?
Zombie Zaynep and
Clive showing Charlotte his
board riding moves from when he was a surf bum.
Clive threatening Simon with
violence if the budget spreadsheet is not updated by Friday.
Julia and ..... Nice
Errr....no idea who these
people are.....and Simon
errrr.....no idea who this
Mystery gift if anyone can
guess who this is.
A word from our sponsors.
Simon, handbag and ....
Gary looking suave
Rupert looking like he has
just won a million pounds or finally got his MIS spreadsheets
working. Note unofficial photographers finger on the lens to create
this outstanding photographic effect.
Surge. I think the answer is 'No' to
whether my project will pass it's QA Healthcheck.
Diane looking to heaven.
Khamla and Jen
Carol and Anna
Ross. I'm lost for
words as for a caption to this picture. Suggestions anyone?
Simon and Gary
(again...looking suave...and slightly demonic with the red eye effect)
Matt getting down and
showing off his dance moves
Mary-anne, Annie and .....
Martin, Employee of the
Month, and Claire
errr....guy in the kilt
could be Iain.
Gary (yet again looking
suave and demonic).
errr....no idea who they are
but they all
Finally managed to get Kate
to pose for a photo and look happy about it. She hates photos.
To the left are Khamla and Mark.
The handsome boys of XDG/GCT,
Jay and Julian.
Andy and Simon. "Get
away from me, Man!"
I'm lost for words to
describe this shot.
Mark and Steve singing Xmas
carols. The 12 man-days of Xmas perhaps. ..."On the 4th man day
of Xmas, Glasgow delivered to me....[slowly].....FOUR XML TEMPLATES...[big
breath]...three Typhon recs, two java thingies and HTML page in a code
release... ". Sorry, poor attempt at techie type lyrics on my
Mark, Phil and Simon. It's funny but I've never met so many Simons in one
workplace. There's about 10-12 in a company of 300 people. I
have even hired three Simons while I have been working here. I guess it
works for me. The contracting group now only send me resumes for
people with first name of Simon.
Fida and Kathy. Does
anyone think that Fida looks just a little like a younger version of Rafic?
....., Andy and .....
Rupert and .... drinking
Surgit, Simon and David.
We are the champions!!
Does this man ever look bad
in a photograph? Hemanshu, proponent of the night club casual look
Khamla and Mark
Kate just about to cover her
face with her hands in order to hide from the camera
"Don't take my picture,
hey?" says Tamy
errr....Rachel telling me
politely to errr...take my camera elsewhere. David looks on with
