404 - not social
I am finally done with my work trip, which is a good thing.  I'm just NOT a social person.  Well, I can spend days on end with friends and people who I share interests with, but the people I work with?  Too different from me to relax around.  And I've basically had to be around crowds of people from 8 am to 10 pm for the last three days, most of them 20 years older than me, and I just can't take not having even a lunch break away from other humanoids.  I have to get up at 4:30 am to get to the airport for the flight back home, and I can't wait.  Also, I'm one of those people who doesn't really mind silence if they don't have anything to say, but my co-workers are all the type of people who will babble anything to keep from being faced with silence.  Dudes, sometimes I'm just THINKING.  It doesn't mean I'm pissed, it doesn't mean I'm upset, I just don't have anything to say right now - why is that frightening to so many people?

On the bad side, I have two reviews and an article to write tomorrow afternoon, in addition to soothing two cats who are traumatized by the mere fact that I go to work every morning, let alone when I disappear for days on end leaving no one to pet them.  On the good side, I finally made progress today on a couple of other things I've been trying to write on all summer but got bogged down in.  One is a story that I'm trying to work up the nerve to actually submit to a small science fiction magazine.  We'll see...

I actually had a couple of other things I was going to blather about, but I'm finally getting sleepy, and 4:30 am is now less than 6 hours away.  Perhaps I shall blather more tomorrow, when I reach the inevitable procrastination stage of writing.
