At the Still Point of the Turning World
Residency is over, NOW what? (While I'm waiting for the answer, I'll get some spinning done....)

I'm pleased to report that the Holiday Party went off without a hitch. About 40 people came, including a good mix of faculty, residents, students, applicants and staff. The food was excellent, and we had exacly as much as we needed. It's always a source of anxiety to me, the thought of running short on eats.

The Secret Santa exchange went smoothly (amazing!), and everyone in attendance received a gift--I didn't have to use any of the hastily-wrapped extras I had stashed in my backpack. Oh, and many of the party favors were alight by evening's end.

A good time was had by all. Would I do it again? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
