How Janna wasted a few perfectly good hours of her life this evening

From Merriam-Webster's Dictionary:
VACILLATE: to waver in mind, will, or feeling : hesitate in choice of opinions or courses

As in, "I am vacillating about whether to go to Jason's party tonight."
I'm just not feeling really social, not in the mood to have any kind of interpersonal fun.
Doesn't that make me sound like a boring, dull, uninspired stick-in-the-mud?
I know, I know. Last time I felt this way I ended up going to the party anyway, and ended up having a very nice time. So maybe this time would be nice too.
Still, I just kinda would rather stay home.
Thus the vacillating.
No doubt you all have exciting Friday plans of your own, and are probably not even reading this anyway!
Have a nice time.
I'll be over here, vacillating.

(later that evening)
Ok, now I'm in a really bad mood.
I showered, got dressed, and drove over to Jason's house. I got there at 6:10, only to find that all the lights were off and no one was home. Thinking maybe I'd arrived too early, I hung out in town for awhile and went back at 7:30.
Lights off, nobody there.
Apparently the whole thing was cancelled and no one remembered to tell me.
Nice, huh?
As soon as I got home I checked my answering machine and e-mail to make sure no one had left me a message, notifying me of the cancellation. Nope. Nothing.
What a waste of time and gas money.
