Just Great

*Sidenote before I even start- I just slammed a desk drawer on my index finger and it hurts. It's throbbing. And it hurts.

Anyway- New Mortgage Company is hosting 'cocktails' at a 'Get To Know The New Mortgage Company' party on Thursday night. I don't wanna go! But it's already started, the guilt trips: "You're a part of this company, you should go." All I do is answer phones, I don't do anything that has to do with the mortgage companies. "Come on, it'll be fun. All the Agents will be there." You mean the agents that will flock to me are the ones I don't like anyway...I'm going to have to make sure my buddies are going. "It's going to be Open Bar." I don't drink anymore...
So in the end I'm going, even if for a half an hour. Long enough to show my face to everyone so they can say "Yeah, I saw Diana there!" and my boss can't say I don't attend Company functions.
Daddy will be home with Little Man...
I will probably be seeing agents dancing on tables after they've enjoyed the Open Bar too much...
I will be trying to stay away from the New Mortgage Guy so he doesn't take my "Hello. Nice to meet you." as an open invitation to hit on me...
*sigh* I really don't want to go.

Don't you hate that? How men assume that a hello is an invitation?

Hello is not an invitation?

I mean if you get more than a grunt out of most men you've received the equivilent of the 'State of the Union'.

Perhaps it was hello with a smile..?

What are you talking about? Just being there is an open invitation.


When I go to parties that I really don't want to be at, I fake being the crazy drunk guy. You know the one, who says "I love you man!" and wears a lampshade or paper clips on my nose. Then the next day I act like it never happened.

Kristen -I do. That's why I keep pressuring Daddy to buy my wedding rings, so I can just hold my left hand out to shake their hands...
Dennis & Tony- you know I'm so glad I'm alone in the office most mornings, because your comments always make me laugh aloud. I'm going to leave the Crazy Drunk Guy act to the actual drunks there, these agents get a little rowdy with open bars...it'll make for good writing on Friday!

Ok but just remember not to smile AND especially remember not to say 'hello' to anybody!!

I there for you! " )
