Come as you are

We received details of our firm Christmas party a little while ago.

Some of us were looking forward to a theme and the potential to dress up - Pirates of the Caribbean perhaps, possibly 1920s gangsters or even come as your favourite Justice of the High Court. (I would've gotten stuck into the bean salad and come as Windeyer J.)

Then we saw the invitation. It read (in part):

Time: 7pm
Dress: business attire
Location: [venue immediately around the corner from the office]

In other words, "We've arranged it so that you can come straight from work. You don't even have to get changed. That way you can stay at work until 6.45."


Talk about squeezing every last drop.

Windeyer J rocks. Apparently he was in awe of Barwick CJ (who was a much better advocate), but I think Windeyer J was a much better judge than Barwick CJ. His judgments have withstood the passage of time.
