    Ugh, so today is my company's picnic and it's mandatory that we all go...hence me calling it "Forced Fun Day". LOL, I'm seriously dreading going. Oh well, at least I will get a free lunch out of it.

    I swear I'd rather be at work, then I could sit in my office and be on BDW.

      That blows Yari! Where is it at? Maybe there will be a dunk tank with your boss in it? or hated co-worker? How about some fun facepainting, ha!?!? Whats on the menu? Remember, free always makes it taste better.

        Yari - you are too funny. Are there drinks at this forced fun day? Do they make you play games with each other? I would love to have one of those dunking pool contraptions for some of the people at my job :P

          Heck no, only freaking water and soda. Yes, they make us play games with each other. GOD help me! A dunk tank would be cool, but I don't have my boss or anyone in my dept. I just don't like being forced to socialize with people I see every freaking day.

          It's at a park. No facepainting either...ugh!

          BBQ chicken and cole slaw. LOL! I hate cole slaw. Okay, I will stop being a downer and just go and have fun. I am a director and supposed to have a fabulous attitude about this. YAY FORCED FUN!

              If you are dreading it so much, make an appearance, eat some food, mingle a bit and go home early to start your weekend :)

                sometimes those things turn out better than you expected. or sometimes they really suck, but you make friends with some people you really didn't know well before. So you look back at the event like a waste of time but if you think about it it was worth going to. Atleast that is my experienced with my annual forced fun. it's a retreat at the beach or mountains. I always dread it & never have a good time, but I have made some friends each year or got to know someone better.

                    Forced Fun

                    What is fun about telling someone to have FUN?

                    I have NEVER heard of that before? Sounds relatively common though... I'd be packing a nalgene bottle with wine in it... :P
