However, there is always at least one person (no matter where you work) that just cannot find their flood level on nights like these and will proceed to get utterly shitfaced, act like a complete buffoon and 'go at it' in ways that should never be 'gone at' at a work function. Even though it can be interesting to observe the behaviours of the crazy person when they've been set free and they're out of their usual habitat, I do find that I tire of it really quickly too. Yeah, it's always funny to a point but when things start to get offensive and possibly dangerous to this person's permanent reputation, then I stop being amused and start getting annoyed and honestly, a bit embarrassed for them as well. And then....glancing at my watch...wow is that the time? Time sure flies when you're having...whatever this is....I think I need to go home.
Maybe I am just getting too set in my ways, maybe I should drink more bubbles and less whiskey when I go to these things, maybe I shouldn't be such a judgmental bitch, whatever the case, by 10.30pm I was done, dusted, over and out! Which is a bit of a shame really, because my work place has some really awesome people that I genuinely like to hang out with, but the introvert in me just cannot handle the crowd, the noise and the carry on.
Without the prospect of needing a cigarette to create an out for me, I found myself contemplating the wallpaper at one point whilst trying to ignore an extremely drunken co-worker that had taken to unrolling condoms with her mouth whilst attempting (but failing epically) to dance provocatively. You cannot just unsee that shit- how can I face her on Monday now with that image in my head? Anyway, it was around that time that I decided that perhaps I had had my fill and was going home for a coffee and some hypnotherapy to wipe some of the less tasteful things from my mind. And that was that, another Christmas function over, another week closer to the end of Term and another step nearer to Christmas Day...it's all just moving too fast!

Rating: MA 15+
Running Time: 97 mins
An Australian science fiction mystery, written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and based on the short story '-All You Zombies-' by Robert A. Heinlein which was about the paradoxes caused by time travel. This is intelligent, thinking man's sci-fi, that stretches the possibilities of time travel to extreme degrees, with very pleasing results.
A time travelling agent on a mission to stop a terrorist named the Fizzle Bomber, finds himself in a bar 1970 listening to a customer recall his strange, and often sad, life story.
There is so much happening in this movie, but I feel that to even write about one of those events would be a spoiler, and this movie is most definitely a film that it is better to watch without any prior knowledge. Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook and Noah Taylor are the only recognizable faces, and they are all doing a great job in delivering a gripping and clever plot line. Expect to be challenged by this film, and although it is somewhat demanding of it's audience, it isn't inconceivable, which is what makes it so very good.
FINAL SAY: The one thing that this job has taught me is that truth is stranger than fiction.
