Smiles all round (mostly) at work yesterday as the power went down at 2pm, and by 3pm it was clear it would be down for much longer. The boss said we could go, so most of our team took ourselves across the road to the Greenwood Hotel.
We had a blast over the next 7 hours drinking beer and more importantly whiskey! As was pointed out today, we spent nearly a whole working day's worth in the pub. It turned out to be a really great night, as many ad-hoc unplanned sessions do. Since I've only been at Wensense now for about 6 months it was a great opportunity to talk some shite with my co-workers and get to know them better. Tops!
Mind you, it was a very slow and difficult day today at work. Slooooow. Brain just wouldn't. work. stuff. ow. sql. hard.
