We Had a Hawaiian Potluck at Work Today.

We had a "Hawaiian" themed potluck at work today. We pretty much used the term "Hawaiian" as loosely as possible because it wasn't really very hawaiian at all.

The party was originally supposed to be an after-work event. However, one particular coworker who turns all Hulkamania-roid-rage when he gets hungry asked (and asked and asked) if we could move it to a lunch time party instead. Since we didn't have anything better to do (except work), we decided to get the party started.

And by "party" I mean "everyone swarming the buffet table and eating in silence".

Even with the assistance of some homemade jungle juice, it was snoozeville.


When round #2 of the potluck party came around (after work), things perked up a bit. Drinks were had and games were played. And it actually turned out to be a success!

Coconut-Mango Rice and sweet potatoes (my favs of the day)

Whoopie Pies

Pulled pork, grilled chicken, and tortillas

My Contribution: King's Hawaiian Rolls (because I was too lazy to cook anything)

Spam Musubi

My plate

My Other Contribution: Jungle Juice! (because why the hell not.)

There was more food than what's pictured above. There was tons of food, actually. Unfortunately, this was all I had patience for. Because I wanted to eat.

We had a limbo contest AND a hula hoop contest. At first, no one could master the act of actually keeping the hula hoop up for more than one second. But once we YouTube'd "how to hula hoop", things got REAL.

This is one of my coworkers who shall remain nameless (unless you want to hook it up, in which case let me know and I'll do what I can).

Lastly, I may or may not have made the office listen to Mele Kalikimaka today. (I don't fucking care that it's a Christmas song.) (Have you even HEARD Hawaiian music?? It's all boring and everything sounds like that dumb Iz "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" shit.) At least my song was fun and festive.

All this food makes me hungry. But where are the Reese's cups? Those are a Hawaiian delicacy right?

First of all, how dare you take the name of Bruddah Iz in vain.

Secondly, looks like fun. We're Hawaiian food connoisseurs with special places in our hearts for spam musubis.

So then I of course had to go to youtube and see what these instructional hula hoop videos were like. Informational! I love hawaiian food. I love hawaii. I'm sad I'm not there right now.

Gotta have spam at the Hawaiian party! I'm surprised you didn't concoct some lovely creation, but it looks like a yummy event anyway.

I get Hulk angry when I'm really hungry, too. Except I don't turn green, it's more of a reddish blue.

Should have busted out the Lilo and Stitch soundtrack. That really would have gotten the party going.

Work parties are awesome! This looks like a great theme and a lot of the food looks yummy.

That entire buffet looks like I wish I had been there. Nummy!
