I Just Want to Be Alone (Don't Take It Personally, I'm a Social Introvert)

Anna-Louise Dearden | Posted 17.07.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Anna-Louise Dearden

I'm sociable, I really am. Everyone I meet pegs me as an extrovert, the proverbial life and soul (burning bright but fast). I feed off interesting people like some kind of creature of the night, but afterwards I definitely need to recharge, assuming I haven't run out of battery mid-way through a party and am left standing paralysed in the full beam of small talk (or hiding in the loo, as above).

David Cameron, Ed Miliband and all the other party leaders will be jostling for voters' final decisions over the coming week in the lead-up to 7 May but on social media, one of their key communications tools, I feel they've got it all wrong.

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year, everything is all beautiful and shiny, people are happy and jolly, and there is just an air of warmth and love - But it often comes hand in hand with extra parties and gatherings where you are tempted to over-indulge in loads of food and drinks you normally wouldn't.

Borne up on a wave of white frocks and tiaras, the Queen Charlotte Ball has sailed back into town. It was always a bit of a mash-up - there is no continuing tradition from George III holding a birthday ball for his wife Queen Charlotte.

There Is No 'N' in 'Restaurateur'

It is a query that assumes many things, the worst being that we are somehow defined by what we do for a living. My answer, "I'm a restaurateur", usually gives way to a tumbleweed moment as I am stared at blankly. But sometimes people correct me... They will say "Don't you mean restauraNteur?"

I slink over to the kitchen and scour the worktops for a tipple. I settle on a big bottle of Plymouth gin and glug as much as decency will allow into the nearest clean glass, before peeking around the kitchen, like a meerkat, on the search for tonic. I soon see a bottle, which is attached to the hand of God, or his nearest approximation on Earth.

How to Stop Your House Party Getting Out of Hand

To have a proper house party you must NOT be too house proud. Sofa stains will occur, glasses will be smashed, a poor unfortunate person might not make it to the bathroom before they have to vomit. If you are the type of person who freaks out at messiness then get drunk and deal with the horror the next day.

Ad Review: Doritos - Mariachi Doritos Sing Stay Another Day

However, I think in order to take this campaign to the next level they could have at least tried to make the 'Stay Another Day' song a Christmas No. 1, perhaps it could compete with Gangnam Style and then we could watch this campaign transform into a different animal and watch history repeat itself.
