Molly and I went to the Firm's holiday party at the Asian Art Museum last weekend. At this party there was a chocolate fondue fountain, along with some very low-quality cookies (you'll notice that I've cleverly added a "back-ground" to the latest strip with the help of my "computer"). The chocolate in the fondue fountain was probably low-quality as well, but I didn't notice because it was in fountain form.
The party was fun. There was lots of Asian art and Asian food, elegant outfits and trashy outfits, and booze flowing like molten chocolate. Not enough tuxedos. I also ran into my old summer pal who is no longer a lawyer at the Firm, but who is going to be my agent when I get around to publishing the I Fought the Law book.
Unlike the holiday party that the court reporters threw at the Northern District courthouse, which I also attended briefly under circumstances I'm not going to explain, there was no three-piece mariachi band. Both parties did, however, feature chocolate fondue fountains, indicating a trend that I could not possibly support with greater fervor. Now, if only someone would throw a party featuring a chocolate fondue fountain and a Krispy Kreme cake. That just might be worth the price of a rented tux.
