It amazes me that MoveOn and other organizations are planning parties for election night. I'm kind of amazed that any people I know directly are doing so, even. And it's not that I don't think it's a fine excuse for a party -- it clearly is. It's just that I cannot fathom being around a big group of people, much less a big group of strangers, that night. I mean, if it goes well, great! But if not, the last thing I would want is to be surrounded by people I don't know, or, frankly, to have even one person around whose presence I don't find grounding or comforting.
I guess this is proof that I haven't lost all of my introvert cred in the last few years.
