Pure JoyThis year (2011) for the Holidays I followed Bentley on a great adventure. He'd seen me stressing out all year and he finally put his paw down. I canceled the plans I had originally made. And he made me follow my heart. Even though I had my doubts.. It turns out, Bentley is wise.
Off we were to Mammoth Mountain, on some last minute plans. The type where you know things are being rushed and so they won't go well. But Bentley had faith. So first he enlisted my Mom, jeanpat because he prefers when she feeds him. She gives him too much in his bowl!
And Viktoria o-KOUKLA-o plays with him in the mornings if I'm still asleep, so she's pretty key to having fun.
And chris keeps the evening games of Settlers of Catan going until the wee hours, so no one interrupts him (Bentley) when he's sleeping!
Core $Staff Tradition of Crazy Parties UpheldOur core $staff works really hard all year under unusual conditions to keep deviantART well-oiled. Unusual circumstances because we're spread out all over the planet, and don't get to hang in person enough! For many new team members this was also the first time we were meeting each other.
So when we get together for the holidays each year... the release valves open up and pent-up energy turns in to hardcore party...
