I generally do. Not to mention the Corporate Wife scene! (Low-level, 
luckily). It's Very Bad Manners among them to discuss ANYTHING anyone might 
possibly be interested in!

Amen. Cons and pagan festivals I like. Being among "normal: people, even the 
nicest of my kinfolk, for any length of time, is a strain. And even at cons, 
I have to back off and hole up with a book, alone, to recharge my batteries.

I really had almost no friends until getting in the scenes mentioned above.
