Holiday Hats

I work in a fun office. That's not to say that all day long we do nothing but joke around - we work hard at what we do, and we do it damn well - but we all have a decent sense of humor and, no matter what else is happening, we can count on a few laughs each day. I work with a good bunch and I'm glad I know them.

One of our recent office traditions here at Marketing Messages is taking photos of the new hires in the official office holiday headgear (the stunning red number modeled above by Sarah.) It's always fun to drag these photos out around this time of year and have a laugh at them. That's what I'll invite you to do in just a moment. First, though, I have to tell you about the newest member of our team.

Diana Peters (she does voice-overs and production) is a hoot. We're all fast with a comeback around here, and she's as quick as they come. Most of us have at least one screw loose - some of us (*cough* DAN *cough*) have ALL of our screws loose - and she fits in that regard. When we told her she had to have her photo taken with the holiday hat, she not only agreed immediately, but the following day she brought in her own version of a holiday hat and had some of us pose for pictures wearing that. I hope she sticks around for a long run with us.

After we took photos with the new holiday hat, we came into possession of yet another one. One of us won it in some sort of raffle. And so we took photos of some us wearing that one, too. So, if you see the same person in three different hats, that's why.

Anyway, here are some employees of Marketing Messages, both past and present, wearing the various holiday hats.

Happy Holidays From All Of Us Here At Marketing Messages!
