> Go for it. have the party, invite the ones you want, leave out the others you don't like, meanwhile, either get a new job, or find social fulfillment *outside* of work or better yet both.
> I start my new permanent day job this Monday, and went out to orientation last night to the Lincoln Field for the football job on the weekends (I changed my mind and decided to go for it at last minute). I'm glad I did too because I just met two new friends last night and it seems like we're going to have a lot of fun working the games and hopefully try to meet some of the NFL players:)
> Just get out of that environment, plan stuff to meet other people and have fun with others somewhere else.
> I know sometimes it's easy to let others make you feel bad, but really, you're better off just shaking it off, coz in the long run, it's never worth it. There's *billions* of people out there to have fun with and do things with, don't waste time on the ones you wouldn't like to be with anyway. It's not worth it.
> Also, let me know when you're birthday is, so I can wish you a happy:)
>>>>>>Hi Margaret! Acutally, of the 17 people I want to invite, 6 are new employees, and I figure they are nice until proven otherwise.
>>>>>>>My BD is September 8.
>>>>>>>Congratulations on both jobs. My husband would do anything to get a Brett Favre autograph -- maybe you'll meet him!!!!!!! (Brett, I mean; you can meet my Wisconsonite husband online any old time.)
