|I heart work. no, really!

today a group of my coworkers who are on a social committee to plan staff events (xmas party type things) said "So we hear you're getting married". They then said "We thought about throwing you a bridal shower, but then thought we'd ask you what you wanted to do to mark the occasion in case you hate those things".
Disaster averted! we're going to go out for happy hour drinks after work the weekend before instead. If I didn't already really like my job, I sure would now. It probably helps that at least one woman on the committee said she'd be hiding under the table and would have to be dragged kicking and screaming if a bridal shower was held.
I have never been to a bridal (or baby) shower before, and I'd hate to break that record by having to attend my own. Besides, for a library, we have a fair number of male employees, and making them endure a wedding shower would be even crueler than making ME attend one.
