My First "Debate" Party

I am going to watch the U.S. presidential candidate debates tonight. In fact, I am attending a "debate" party at a local restaurant. I'm actually really nervous. I have no idea what to expect, but I felt motivated to go since I need to start getting out and about in my new city and making friends outside of work.

I'll bring my laptop. The invitation says to do so. My laptop has been having "issues" lately, but if it is functional, I will blog while I am there. If nothing else, this will make the social aspect a little less awkward. Don't worry though ;-). My laptop is a notebook convertible, so I will keep it flat like a notebook and keep my eyes up and scanning the crowd so I am open for conversation opportunities.

I'll let you know what I think of the debates, and how the crowd is!

Have fun! Or, I guess it's over, so I hope you did have fun. We watched it with my in-laws, and there was much complaining going on. About the debate, not about the in-laws.
