When meeting new people, how do you avoid the interview-style boring questions? (How old are you? Where did you grow up? Do you work or study? ...)

What techniques do you use to avoid answering these questions without appearing antisocial?
What do you do when you're out of things to say, and have the urge to ask these questions?
How do you convert the conversation to something more creative?
It's not that I have anything to hide, but I hate repeating the same conversations every time, and I don't think it's a good way of getting to know someone new.
