so

Tomorrow night, I'm supposed to go to a swankity swank party being held in the East Bay as a fundraiser for a local theater company I work with a lot here. I'm looking forward to it just by virtue of the fact that I get to get all gussied up.

However...networking? Networking and schmoozing do not come naturally to me. They are definitely nurture not nature for me. But I'm hoping that a glass of wine will help in the department....heh!

Isn't it funny how we gals love to get gussied up? The wine should help.

Yeah, I don't like it either, but I've been going to more since I switched jobs. I always make sure to take a friend, which always makes me feel less like a dork when I'm not talking to someone. I keep going with one of the same two people, and sometimes we split up, sometimes we stick together. We make a goal for the night, like I'm going to give my card to three people, and then I can go home! That seems to help me, so I don't wander about aimlessly feeling stupid:)

A glass of wine most definitely helps in these situations. And two glasses are better, still. ;-)

I hear ya about "mandatory fun," which is what we used to call these sorts of gatherings back in the day. I was never much good at it...
