Tonight I went to this fundraiser/barbecue/party thing some folks from the 4P's threw because they are running in the Army Ten-miler or some such charity runny-thing. I like the hosts, Scott and Amy (who runs the quiz) . Of the other folks there, I knew and like maybe about ten of them. There were a few others i recognized but know only well enough to dislike. I sat with a few of the folks I actually know and like, but didn't talk much. Which is par for the course at most parties. I'm just not a great conversationalist, unless you can get me talking about stuff I know lots about, or you can get me going on soemthing I think is really funny. For example, earlier this week at work, MJ and I had a conversation about long-running comic strips, and I went on a long speculative fiction about Mary Worth staying forever 60 through the use of the blood of young virgins. Yeah, there was none of that at this party. Too bad.
