I had every intention of going to the EoS party and brining lbitw with me. And about an hour before we were planning on showing up, as we were eating our Gyros (Ok, mine was a Lamb Suvlaki Sandwich, but you can't tell the difference from the outsdie) from the Greek Corner and were watching another episode of The West Wing ('cause this is what we do) I hit a wall of "OMG - Drained" and... never recovered enough to deal with the wall of people that would have been inevitable.
I'll make it back out to large or even moderately sized social occasions again some day, I swear. Other than a con. Cons I can handle 'cause I'm in work-mode.
