Holiday parties

Sometimes holiday parties can't be avoided.

If you're in early days or otherwise shaky:

  • Line up a couple of people to talk to immediately after the event so you have that to look forward to
  • Remain in contact with sane people, by text
  • Imagine yourself encased in a soft, squidgy, see-through God-bubble that will keep you protected at all times
  • Try to engage positively and constructively in the party: increase the pleasure of those around you
  • Plan an escape route if you really can't cope, and make sure you're not dependent on anyone to leave
  • If you have to leave early, say you're unwell, which will be true
  • If it doesn't belong to you, don't even sniff it
  • If it does belong to you, definitely sniff it.
