It's a Condie Christmas

Condie Construction has a really fun format for their Christmas party. They buy and wrap a ton of gifts. Then they give everyone 2000 dollars of funny money and they auction off the gifts. Everyone gets into it and it's a lot of fun. The best part, you end up with the most random Christmas gifts.

This year I received via auction some adorable mugs....24 of them to be exact. a 3 million candle power rechargeable spotlight, a cute apple baking dish with apple crumble dessert mix and a lawnmower racing mania 2007 game for PC. I still had 550 dollars when all was said and done but it was a auctioneering gift buying frenzy for a solid hour.

I've brought the racing game into work today so that all of corporate Condie may enjoy. We are thinking about putting it on the server. What a great start to the Holiday season!

It's some sort of a spotlight. They suggest using it for, "camping, hunting and fishing" turns out I don't do a lot of those activities. I'm sure I'll find a use for it however.

That sounds like a ton of fun...maybe I can talk Colby into doing something of the sort for his company party.
