    I'm on a Christmas MS Teams chat with the whole company. I'm not gonna lie, i prefer a Christmas Do where you just go and get drunk!

    Is it frowned upon to get drunk on the MS Teams call? :p

    Hmmm good shout!

    I was planning on going for a run and sticking it on some headphones with video turned off, but i've got loads of work to do. There's currently some Slovakian guest violinist playing and explaining the music of Bach.

    I'm not sure Global meetings get what the UK wants from things like this. Where are the Zoom strippers?

    Lucky you, we're a global firm with around 12000 employees so figure that'd be a bit tricky. There's only around 15 of us in the UK.

    I feel bad for the people in ASIA where it's late at night and they're stuck with this!

    How can Tesco get their tomato soup so right but their chicken soup so wrong.

    Ah good old zoom...had a random meeting for the last 40 odd mins or so, so was playing catch up with the work I had to stop. Then colleague messaged me to say she was finishing etc, then sent me a gif of a topless hunk wishing me merry Christmas...needless to say I forgot how to read and write for a couple of mins :o

    Phew it's hot in here :D

    A Christmas on MS Teams with a whole company would be so sad, I wouldn't do it. Would rather go out.

    It was very corporate. With each region putting together a video for the rest and generally discussing company related things. Went on for 3 hours too!

    Feeling rather restless this evening. Can't decide what to do/What to watch :/

    Trying to decide if I should get into my Xmas pyjamas and watch a happy Xmas film that I know will make me cry/feel depressed a little bit lol

    Anyone else feel like it's not Christmas? Not sure if it's because I've not seen family like I normally would and haven't been out to the shops etc. Heck Xmas day is next week and so far I've only bought 1 present :o lol. I don't even feel that stressed about that either....ooh maybe this is just a side effect of getting old :D
