12:57 am - Another social event
I went to yet another social event where I felt unwelcome and at a loss for how to start conversations with people. This generally seems to happen to me anytime more than about 4 people I don't know get together in the same place. I should have followed my intuition and left shortly after it started. *sigh*
Alternately, of course, I could learn how to deal with things like that. No matter how 'on' I am though, events like that always defeat me. :-/
On the plus side, I did see a couple of people I know. The photographer was someone I had met at another, much smaller gathering, and she was interesting. I'd also gone to see her work at the school she's getting her degree from. It was very good Adbusters style work. I was impressed. She was nice to talk to.
And, of course, moesmith88 was there, and that was good.
Lastly, one of the acts was amazing. I haven't seen dance that was that well done anywhere before. I've seen dance that was technically more difficult. But never anything that told a story so well. It left me wondering just how emotionally involved the two people who put the act on were, and what their relationship was like if it was an intimate one.
