Sorry to disappoint some people but I do not perform on command.

That is all.

To go to my firm's holiday party tonight.  I feel so tired, the weather is horrible and I am feeling sort of anti-social at the moment.  I had a very good day.  I hosted a meeting at the firm of a women's professional group and it went very well.  About 50 women came out in nasty weather to eat some yummy food and talk about our careers and the technology we use.  I had my annual appraisal with my boss today and that went very well too.  For once I was told I was doing a very good job and "keep up the good work".  Tomorrow we get letters that tell us what our raises and bonuses are.  I like the people I work with - most of them anyway. 

So I should go.  But I am still sitting here in my office making excuses about why I can't go, don't want to go, whine whine whine. 

But I feel like I won't have anyone to talk to.  My assistant will go hang out with his friends the paralegals, which is fine.  They are all young enough to be my children and they don't want me hanging around - understandable.  The secretaries will all hang out together, also the custom.  They feel weird if I talk to them because I am not "one of them", even though they are nice.  The lawyers will all cling to each other and the partners will be democratic and say hello but you can't really hang out with them.

So that leaves me solidly alone.  And I really don't want another evening of sitting by myself looking pathetic.

But still... I should go.  It is expected.  It could look bad if I don't make an appearance.

Whine.

Sigh.
