    Parties are great though, its great to entertain, I dont know why people dont appreciate it more or think of it as one of the pinnacles or great experiences life has to offer.

    You hear about people entertaining to mark occasions or network or as a reflection of group or society politics but I think its enough to simply celebrate another day of living

    I do agree with you there, now is always a good time for a party. or at the very least a bit of merriment. some how some way. I do unbirthdays for myself, so it seems only logical to skip my birthday ^_^

    My brother and a friend and I one weekend all met up and spent some time around the marketplace eating food we'd not usually eat, oystars from a stall in the market (though my brother thought that he was food poisoned by that, I was fine), we bought a load of different sorts of cheeses, a load of different sorts of craft beers, watched some good TV in the shape of Ash Vs The Evil Dead and said we'd do it every month. I took a snap for FB and like the fact that now and again it shows up as a memory. We never did make it a monthly or regular thing, I'm sorry that we never did as it was great.

    When I opt to socialize it’s to have a good time.

    But I have to socialize for work and that isn’t always fun but that’s why I get paid.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm an Fi-user. I'm recommending for others what worked for me: That is, studying and improving a bit at Fe skills.

    Now entertaining, i.e. hosting or organizing a party, can sometimes be a mildly engaging exercise in planning.

    If you find that helps you get something you value, then it is worth the effort for you. Others may come to different conclusions.
    They are quite gentle, really, but people avoid them because they are a bit . . . different.

    Of course. That's taken for granted.

    In my earlier post I gave a short description of how I do small talk, and I listed what I described as "my rules on small talk," meaning that they're the rules that *I myself* use. (Though originally I got them from a self-help book.) I subsequently offered to elaborate further, and agentwashington was kind enough to express interest.

    Anyone else is free to read my posts or not, and follow "my rules" or not, as they please.
