Potluck lunch, Celebrating with a

Librarians should celebrate the holiday season with an office potluck lunch. Nothing honors the baby Jesus's birth like a lukewarm casserole.

Right on! Nothing beats dishes made with canned soup.

Be the cheap asshole who brings tossed salad or saltine crackers. That always makes me want to punch a wall.

Or even better, have an office party, be sure to hit up every single person in the section for money to contribute to the boss but then conveniently forget to tell any half-time personnel when the party is, so the half-time personnel don't even have the opportunity to be the cheap asshole who brings saltine crackers and has to run and buy a snack-sized bag of M&Ms out of the vending machine.

this is hilarious, because we totally had a potluck lunch today. there was lots of questionable food, but some good stuff too.
my favorite are the people who peer pressure you into eating the thing they made despite your polite refusals.

Oh, those senior managers who spend the five weeks before the potluck lunch chivvying and nagging staff to find out precisely what they're getting and how much it will cost.

And why so?

So that they don't spend a penny more than anybody else and don't go to the unnecessary expense of buying that second bottle of sparkling mineral water...

Or be the person who brings a crate of clementines that they got on sale for $2.99 and asks you why a) you don't bring in your homemade jam and b) while I'm at it, to make enough scones for 50. As if!

The potluck in our department is always very good. People really get into it. The problem I have is when other departments hear about it and crash to pile up their plates. Grrr!!

No one goes to our potlucks except for the diehard suck butts. Nothing can kill an appetite faster that eating next to your boss, or even worse, the Director.

Be the person who only eats store-bought dishes because you don't trust the cleanliness of other people's kitchens. And say so.

I had 3 holiday parties this year and 2 were potlucks which isn't so bad because our department gets fancy. I brought in large toaster over so that my casserole wouldn't be lukewarm. And it was made with canned soup. :)

A few years ago, when we had our old and more evil director, my department threw a non-holiday potluck just to bring up everyone's spirits. (This director was kind of like a Dementor)

Almost everyone got into the act, made good soups/casseroles/whatever. My favorite contribution? The can of crushed pineapple --unopened-- given by the director. Mercifully she didn't spend a lot of time at the party.

When I worked in VT we used to hold the holiday potluck the day after the students left for break--and there was always enough food that we ate from it for lunch every day until we took off for the holidays (usually about a week) in between times we would keep the food nice and cold by putting it all into the outdoor bookdrop (we had a very tiny refrigerator in the staff room that wouldn't hold a single casserole). It might not have been the best food ever (especially toward the end of the week) but it was nice to get free eats for a change.
The library I'm at now suffers from a fair amount of culinary competition, which is highly beneficial around pot luck time (pass the lox and cream cheese please).
