My tank is FULL [Mar. 20th, 2009|11:38 am]
[Current Mood |aggravatedisolationist]

So, after the crazy weekend of crazy, when the Palimpsest circus pulled out of town Tuesday afternoon, Erin was still here for another day-and-a-half of spring breakiness. Which was awesome to have her around for just some time for us. Tuesday evening, when the Magic: the Gathering crew arrived, she and I retreated to the back and watched episodes of Top Gear on her laptop.

Wednesday, we all hung out and watched more Top Gear. Yesterday, she left about 11:30, and then bec76 came over to hang out for a while, and then xhollydayx came so that we could begin our new venture into bellydance lessons from Bec - yay! Then zodarzone arrived to pick up Bec after lessons, and we got to talking, and somehow there were plans for Indian food, to be picked up by Holly's husband, Nathan (cynic51) and a watching of Wall-e.

And it was all terrific fun, and we got to show them Burn-e, the bonus short on the Wall-e disk, which is hysterical, and much visiting, and it was hovering around 11pm when they were gathering up there stuff and getting ready to leave.

And all of the sudden, my people tolerance hit "full saturation, NO MORE PEOPLE!!!" And so did Ferrett's. He put it best, when we discussed potential activities for Saturday:

"I want to stay in my cave and if anyone tries to drag me out I'm going to scream and scream and scream."

Yeah, it's cave time. I'm not even responding to Ferrett's friending frenzy - no more new peoples!!!!

Fortunately, my need for cave time is relatively limited. I have a full day scheduled Sunday, and I will be fine by then. But today and tomorrow? It's us two primates in our cave. Those attempting to breach it shall be met with clubs and thrown feces.

I read a very interesting article (maybe in Psychology Today?) some time ago, which talked about everyone's need for three kinds of time:

Alone time (more desirable for introverts , but necessary for everyone), for reflection

Intimate time (with family, friend, spouse) for communication

Crowd time (preferred by most extroverts) for stimulation.

It really helped me understand my introvert husband, and conversely, helped him to understand his extremely extroverted wife!

OMG yes!

Thank you. You made with the words all perfect-like!

Enjoy your cave - from mine to yours! (and yes, I'm in my cave this weekend SxSW did me in for people for awhile I think!)

And I'm gonna say, no. Really too peopled out and in need of solitude. I have pidgin turned off and I can't even read my flist - too many personalities! Hell, I have been hiding out in my room with a book and hardly talking to Ferrett.

Firebowl party tonight. I know you folks were invited. And though, yeah, it sounds busy, the last couple of ones had one, maybe two people show up at best. They are very laid back affairs, but we'll be having more soon so we don't want you guys to come if you don't feel like it. Like I said, they'll be another one in a few weeks

Ah, yes. I had already told Bec I thought not, and it had gone out of my head. We will definitely be up for ones later in the season, but not tonight.

Cave monkeys. Ook. ;-)
