The rest of my weekend worth writing about was Saturday night's unofficial reunion of high school friends. It was all serendipitous - two friends were in town from way far away (Hong Kong and Italy) and so the party was organized. I have not seen some of these people in over 25 years! Ah, the power of Facebook.
I was a little bit nervous, but at least this time around I have an interesting life to talk about. (I went to a small itty bitty reunion last summer - recently divorced, no friends, etc.) I had a great time. Funny how people change but they don't.
I got there about an hour into the appetizer time (amazingly enough and unfortunately mapquest was right in terms of it taking at least 4.5 hours). Walk in the door and all I could say is 'this is ODD'. All these people!!! And when you're the newest person walking in the door, you don't get very far. One at a time people say hello. I just wanted a drink!!! :-) kidding.
Everyone was very excited to hear I'm moving to San Francisco, and I think I may get more visitors than I bargained for! Actually, I think no matter what I'm going to get more visitors than I bargained for. I've already made a rule in my head that I'm not going to the tourist attractions with every single person - especially the ones that cost money like Alcatraz.
Since everyone had a great time, there's talk of making it more frequent. One person seriously suggested next weekend. While they are great people, it's not high school anymore. But I never liked big groups anyway and like my independence. So, good thing I'm moving away. I sound so curmudgeonly...I think it's just the waking at 4:45 and not being able to get back to sleep. I'm no good with lack of sleep.
Off I go to try and do work.
