I just semi-lied to get out of socializing. Boss phoned me up, coworker/friend's birthday, they want me to come out. It tires me to even think of it. Not because I don't like socializing. I just have no desire to start building or continuing any serious friendship with people I just can't be arsed with. They're people who come into my life through random circumstance, like work. In my case, I happen to currently be surrounded by people who are no mental stimulation for me whatever (except one or two), and it really tires me to even think having to rabble through BS conversation consistently getting drunker and drunker with people I have nothing in common with and don't stimulate me in any way. Except my boss, she's a good friend, she's cool. But the rest... meh.
I hate my two-facedness, but damnit I can't stand the tediousness and boredom of some people.
Thank christy this work/living situation is just for a few more months.
I don't want real friendships with these people, I honestly get more stimulation, laughter, and comraderie from the crowd here at BF, it sucks this is all just a intarweb thingee in the end.
I just sure as hell have a morbid fear of being sucked into the type of socializing this night would have entailed. With Dutch beer and all, blech.
