I am a troll - leave me alone

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.

[/end venting]

I know of what you say - perhaps your boss wanted you there so she wouldn't suffer...

So you posted a thread complaining about mindless, banal socializing in Foo?

I met one of my best friends at a job I didn't like. I didn't like him at first either. Maybe try being a little more open minded to 'em.

I'm a very good judge of character. Trust me, this isn't about me not being open-minded, or the job sucking. Those are entirely coincidental.

Have you ever seen Mr. T's movie Be Somebody or Be Somebody's Fool?" It's pretty amazing. I went to the annual Mr. T Film Festival and Retrospective, in Queens, sponsored by the Pity The Fool Foundation, a few years ago, and saw this cinematic gem.

I was just co-venting on the phone with a friend and she thought my boss was dragging me out because the other girl has the hots for me. eep.

+1 That's the first thing I thought, too. Given that she's one of the few people OP calls a good friend, she's probably hopin' there'll be at least one other intelligent person there. I mean, she's the boss. She can't get out of it, ya know? <serious Vega look>

Yeah - thats one of those situations where, as my dad puts it, "You have to bite the bullet".

Strangely enough, I'd now kill to have something like that once or twice a month.

What, a bullet to bite? Or a social outlet?

Would that were the case, I would go in a flash. Anything for a friend.
But no, she enjoys socializing with them. The other girl is a friend of hers.

You should ask your boss to be your mistress.
