Although I've been working on the same hospital floor for four years, I've somehow only been to two of the four annual barbeques. This year I tried to provide something tasty by bringing Tanqueray No.10 gin and the fixings for martinis (Vermouth, olives, ice) and tonics (tonic, limes, ice). Unfortunately, nobody seemed to really like these. Who doesn't like a strong drink? Oh well. I left in the middle of the day to do some studying, then went back this evening and cleared up my stuff. At least I got a bottle of good gin out of it.
I enjoyed myself, although I don't enjoy being told that I'm stuck up because I wear a sweater vest sometimes. Give me a break.
