*grumble*  
Once again people are in my office discussing the possiblity of doing fun things with my officemate. Are they so insensitive that they can't wait to get him alone first before talking about all the things that i'm not invited to?

jeez
that totally sucks.

perhaps those idiots think it doesn't matter to you? or they think you're so cool you'd never be bothered with the lowly likes of them?

(yeah, yeah, i know, they're most likely just assholes.)

i sympathize completely; that happened to me at my last job, and when it leaked over into the job itself, when i was being left out of information necessary to do my job just because i wasn't cool enough, i went through a lot of torment. (as an interesting twist of fate, my L5-S1 disk herniated when the torment was at its height and i've been unable to work since.)

FWIW, i think the isolation in my last job happened primarily because the clique leader felt intimidated by me. (which was silly, because we were equals and i wanted to be collaborative, not competetive.) could that be happening to you?

Re: jeez
I don't know why that do it, but I doubt that it's because of anyone feeling intimidated by me. I'm not a very imposing person.

They might not know that I'd be interested, but then they've never asked, and I've talked with my officemate about the types of things that they do, so he knows that I'm interested in such things.

It may be a combination of "age" and demographics.

Most of the people in the clique are designers, with a few artists. My officemate is the only programmer, and part of the reason that he got involved was because he started working here about six months before I did, and was one of the first people on the team, so the clique was mostly formed before I showed up.
