It’s Hard Being an Introvert When Social Events Beckon…

I love hanging out in crowds about as much as I love crowds…..  That said, I do enjoy seeing people (individually) but group gatherings are really the most stressful awkward things I ever have to endure.

So I never stay long.  I just can’t.

So I went to the Reception, had a diet pepsi, chatted with a few people I knew, and yes, left.  I can’t interrupt folk when they’re socializing and at social events they’re socializing.  If I catch you when you first arrive it’s all good.  After that, nope.

So for me SBL concludes tonight.  I had a great time.  DV, next year in Boston.

Only One Thing Remains- The Bloomsbury / T&T Clark Reception

Before it I met up with a few friends before the exodus of academics from San Antonio.  Then dinner.  Next, Bloomsbury.  And oh yes, Crossley and I reconciled after our nonexistent feud.

Around Lunch

Had more fun wandering around chatting with folk and then had lunch with Anne from Copenhagen. Good times. Now, off to Sessions!

Breakfast on the Last Full Day of SBL 2016

And ran into Mark Smith who very kindly gave me a copy of his recent book.
