I usually don’t go to parties. I’ll go to little gatherings and coffee klatches, but parties aren’t really my forte. I did the yearly shindig this year for all the people I work with, and this was the first time I actually showed up. I think the nicest part was being able to hang with people I see at work, but not in the “formal” setting. I didn’t stay as long as I would have liked (yes, I have responsibilities elsewhere), but the time I did spend was fun!
It’s interesting to see people all decked out as you probably wouldn’t otherwise see them – kinda gives you another peek into people that way. Of course, I forgot my camera at home, which sucked, but I got some half-way decent snaps with my phone. It’s so nice to see there are those in the current generation that still like to be original – that’s a refreshing breath of fresh air there too.
Oh, and I added two more buddies to my Myspace list, so that was cool. I rather enjoy putting real people I know on there rather than just random people that are famous. I still keep Mari in my top 20 because I HAVE met her, so she counts as one of my real-life friends. 🙂
The other interesting thing? I realize I know a lot of people there…..but then there were a lot of people I DON’T know, so I guess it was a bit of an eye-opener as well. I guess it’s to be expected where I work at. Ah well……it was fun!
