Someone asked me why I didn't go. First off, there was a dress code. A girl had to wear a nice formal gown - guys had to wear slacks and a tie at the very least. I don't do dresses. I think they are a sign of oppression, and degrading to women. Also, I can't afford a formal gown PLUS dinner PLUS dance tickets PLUS new shoes anyway.
There's also the fact that I have personal issues with the DJ, especially considering I don't believe we originally planned to contract the guy anyway.
But mostly I just didn't feel like going. Too tired to be sweet and cordial to everyone.
So instead I stayed home and watched dust collect on my desk drawers. I think I may have a story about dust particles coming up.
I'll keep you updated.
