I wonder why the company is having these earlier and earlier every year. It used to be in January of the next year. Then they moved it back to the middle of December. Now it is in November?? I hate these... I always get into a bit of a tiff with management because they try to spread the blame for something that is mostly their problem. And I don't take that so easily.
When I got home, I saw a menu stuck to the door. Hey, it's a new Chinese takeout place: Montvale Chinese Cuisine. Hmm... that's a pretty low-key name. No evoking romantic images of dragons, enormous walls, pandas, bamboo or Hong Kong like the other takeout places. Anyway, I'm ordering from them this evening to give them a try.
