Social Number One

Tonight begins a series of three straight Holiday socials Liz and I are going to. We are beginning with her "pot luck" martial arts evening. As I explained before, a pot luck is when everyone brings a dish to share with everyone else. I am planning on plenty of dessert, since at least four have responded with desserts as what they are bringing.

Other than that, I don't know really what to expect. Other than knowing most of these people only by sight, I haven't much to say. Innately, I am very shy, so I don't want my silence to come off like a bitch.

I'm wearing my cream colored long sweater which contains just a bit of a gold thread to give it a little Holiday flair. With it, I am wearing my patterned tights and black flats, since the weather is supposed to be un-seasonably warm

The whole affair is only supposed to last a couple hours, so I am sure it will be over before I know it.

I'm sure thinking about it will cause more anxiety than the social itself. Especially if I can find a way to be social!


  1. Well, it's a series; you only need to win two out of three! :-)

    Unless I'm put on a stage, I'm also pretty shy. A trick I've often used is to hang around the food table. I just graze lightly, and most everyone will come to the table sooner or later. I can then begin small talk by saying something like: I don't know what that blue stuff is, but it sure tastes good; have you tried it? It beats sitting in the corner and waiting for someone to come to me - no matter how pretty a wallflower I may be. :-)
