so as you have gathered, i made it back from my reunion. i think maybe thirty or thirty-five actual classmates were there, and of course spouses and significant others filled out the crowd. it was not a spectacular event, but i am glad i went, if for no other reason than to be able to say i have now procured beer from a keg. i know what you're thinking, but what can i say? i was a real stick in the mud during my college days. as i'm sure a few of you could confirm.
there was mingling, and then there was eating, and then there was more mingling. the mingling redux actually consisted of one third of the crowd browsing through sheets of individual updates, binders of old high school newspapers, and a complete archive of yearbooks starting in KINDERGARTEN. [if you're confused: we have a small school system. one elementary, one middle school, one high school. and i wouldn't have it any other way]. the other two thirds of the crowd was crowded around the keg in the back, talking and watching the osu-penn game. so for a few hours i was able to catch up with a few people i hadn't seen for awhile -- some for the full ten years -- and had some good conversations. all in all it was kind of a surreal experience to see some of these people again. and, yeah, i'll probably go to the twenty year reunion too. i blame it more on thoroughness than excitement.
in other news on connecting, i finally bit the bullet and bought a laptop, which i have been tinkering with all week. next on the list: wireless router. anyone got a spare?
