Wishing I didn't have to go tonight...  
...Sometimes I wonder what the big deal is... It's supposed to be a party right? With good food and all the alcohol we can drink (which is totally wasted on me since I don't drink...) at a nice fancy hotel... Unfortunately, although I'm by no means anti-social, I'm a little uneasy with social situations at work. I like all of our Investment Reps, but they're a different breed of people - outgoing, loud, very garish - and I don't seem to fit into the groups that they congregate in... At least I'll be there with the people from my branch (who I adore...) and I can hang out with them all evening. I guess it shouldn't be too bad... but I'm still not particularly looking forward to it. :P

On the other side to all of this, Mark is rather happy that he'll be able to spend the evening at home alone... He gets into these "cooking" moods (usually after watching Alton Brown or Emeril on Food Network) ;) and he likes to spend the evenings he has at home trying to cook elaborate, albeit strange meals. He doesn't do it when I'm home because he knows that some of his food combinations (which usually are VERY high in fat content and VERY spicy) will not be appealing at all to me. Can't wait to find out what his creation tonight will be. I'm pretty interested, but pretty scared at the same time. :P

I spent the morning listing Julie Ann's site on search engines, etc. Still looking for her episodes from "Drew Carey" and "ER" that I have somewhere, under all my mess of tapes here... :( It may be a while until I get those screen caps on the site - if today's search was any indication. :P

And can someone please tell me how it's possible that my dead site for Chad Brannon gets more email than my active sites for Julie Ann, Julie, and Kevin? UGH... :P

Anyway, I'm off to get ready for my big evening... :P

I know what you mean about parties and hanging out with people. I'm like that too, I won't go if I don't have anyone to hang out with.

Woah...Mark likes to cook! I love watching Alton Brown and Emeril.

Actually the party wasn't too bad at all. :)

Yeah, Mark loves to cook - he's still in the experimental stage - his creations are definitely interesting! :) And we always watch the Food Network... it's our favorite channel! :)

Those work parties are a mixed blessing. At least you know some people there. Hopefully you'll have a good time.

I'm sure you'll have a good time at the party

Thanks, Stacey. :) BTW, I see you've been busy posting photos in your journal. :) I have to get over there and see them in more detail. :) Hope you're having a nice weekend! :)

Oh yeah I did that instead of working on my paper! LOL

I don't drink either and social situations with work people always make me nervous.

I always feel a little uneasy since I'm friends with the people at work, but not really FRIENDS with them - if that makes any sense... :P Especially when I knew all the higher-ups would be there...yikes... :P
