I frequently have people popping up in IM windows, asking why the hell I’m sitting at home on a Friday/Saturday night. I should be out at a party, with friends, beign social, whatever. The truth is, though, acting like a normal twenty-year-old woman doesn’t appeal to me in the slightest. I was considering going to The Key Club to see a couple bands I like, as well as a special appearance by Dane Cook. Instead, I opted to come home and go out to dinner with my parents. Plans for my 21st, only five months away? No big party. Forget Vegas. More than anything, I just want my Dad to buy me a drink at Molly Malone’s.

I don’t think I’m especially boring, and it’s not that I’m lazy. I do like to get all dressed up to go out. But the club scene, bars, whatever…I dunno. If I’m with people, I want to be *with* people; not performing some activity where other people happen to be joining in. I like conversation. The highlight of next week, for me, will be going to AllisonandAdam’s, having a drink, and playing Scrabble in my pajamas. Exotic, no…not so glamorous either. And I’ve had the opportunity to be both of those things. It’s just not my deal. Am I missing out on an important part of my adult life?

While we’re on the subject of what kind of girl I am…according to Stoner Philip (I actually have no idea if he smokes…sweet kid in a couple of my classes, looks a bit dazed all the time), I “don’t look like the kind of girl who’d be into comics.”

Me: (looks up, slightly annoyed that Watchmen is being interrupted) What does that even mean?
SP: (shrugs)
Me: Well, what do I look like?
SP: Like…not a dork.

When I informed that I am indeed a dork, one who plays D&D and can tie Doctor Who/Firefly into most conversations, he shook his head in disbelief…and went back to his nap.

Guess I’m full of surprises.

    I’m not really into the clubbing scene either. Sweaty drunk people in a confined space is not always my idea of a good time. People don’t think I’m super nerdy either, when I think it’s obvious; get me going on any fandom and I won’t stop talking about it. Ah well. See you tonight love! <3
