This whole week at work has been crazy. It's our annual rep symposium, where the company reps from around the world congregate at our office for a week to review the 2006 marketing and sales plans. In addition to all that business stuff, our company planned all sorts of evening events to keep everyone entertained, including after-work wine and hors d'oeuvres socials, our annual Christmas party, dinners, etc. On Thursday night, we treated everyone to a night out at Medieval Times, a dinner theater in nearby Buena Park where you eat with your fingers while watching a jousting tournament.
Just one of the many spectacles at Medieval Times. (12/08/05)
It was really fun hanging out with all these guys from places like France, Germany, UK, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Argentina, Phillipines, South Africa, Spain, Venezuela, Australia, Colombia and Trinidad (although sometimes their accents make them a little hard to understand, which accountd for all my nodding and smiling).
I also enjoyed watching the Knight that represented our section (the red section). He was the only one with short hair and a clean-shaven face. The other Knights looked kind of dirty, if you ask me.
This was the Knight for our section ... the Red Knight. (12/08/05)
But despite what you might think, I wasn't the Red Knight's best fan. That was reserved for my friend and co-worker Tina who went absolutely ga-ga for the guy. At one point I thought she was seriously going to lift her top!
My co-worker Tina was so excited about the Red Knight, I almost expected her to lift her top. (12/08/05)
It was actually my third time attending Medieval Times. The first was for our friend Christine's birthday about 10 years ago. Then about five years ago we went again for Tim's nephew's birthday. At the time of Tim's nephew's birthday, I remember saying that Medieval Times was one of those things you only need to do once. But it's amazing how much more fun it is when someone else is paying for it (including drinks!). :)
