This Is What Happens When You Leave Your Comfort Zone

You find yourself trapped between a bay window and a table while everyone around you oohs and aahs over the Stampin' UP! lady's wares and begin contemplating crawling under the table to escape. You then listen to Metallica, Garbage, and 30 Seconds to Mars while driving home in an attempt to induce some sort of feeling other than self-pity. Until you give up, indulge in a pity party, and end up listening to Stacey Kent sing "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and posting pathetic missives on your blog in the middle of the night. All because you decided to go to a Stampin' UP! party at which you were the only single person in attendance and couldn't even drown your sorrows in the chips and salsa, because someone had put cheese in the salsa. I miss cheese.

Drat that cheese!!! So sorry you had a tough night. Stampin' UP parties make me want to hide under the table too. ;)

LOL. Sorry, I would have been there with you if my parents had not been in town. ALthough I might have enjoyed the crafty stuff. So no reply at your b-day party this weekend right? jk :) Looking forward to it.

I almost went to that (but my car broke down) and I'm so glad I didn't now. :) (except for the part where I could have provided moral support)

See, that's why I just buy my pretty hand-made cards at Costco. They put out a massive box every year for $15 they just get more and more fabulous. Plus, no Smug Marrieds required.

Yeah, I didn't understand the woman at the party who gushed about being able to make 100 cards for $60 or something. You can buy cute 'handmade' cards at Target for $8 for 20, which comes out to $40 for 100. Not as good as the Costco deal, but still cheaper than the StampinUP! cards, plus you don't have to make them.
