What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄).

It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.

Hi Account friends! It’s the start of a new year and I was hoping you all could share any book / newsletter / blog / course recommendations that help keep you up to snuff.

Comment your favs and THANK YOU in advance!

I work with a partner who overthinks and over complicates everything. Something that should take 1 day takes 3 days. One day, I spent a solid 6 hours going back and forth with him revising a simple motion. I billed 6 hours for finalizing the motion, which is obviously absurd but I want to show my time accounted for. I plan to explain that entry to the partner who the client belongs to since I know it's absurd. I hate working with this other guy though because everything takes forever. Any tips?

Oh and no long lasting bodily harm. These are pranks after all. Psychological harm is totally fine tho.
