Reunions
Not that I watch that WB show "Reunion" but reading PinksandRoses blog made me think of reunions or 'bumping into' old school friend, be it high school or grammar school. I don't do it often, or even occasionally, and I'm actually happy about that. I'm not exactly where I want to be in life and when you meet people they all want to know 'So, what have you been doing?"

Not a question I care to answer. But, I have kept in touch with my good friends from High school and that's cool. But I didn't go to my HS Reunion, didn't really care for it. In HS all I wanted to do was get the hell out. I wasn't friends with a lot of people, so I figured why go back and pretend we're all chummy after 10 years, right?

I have a couple friends in College I keep in touch with and I plan to keep in touch with them a long time. One friend is really cool, we email and talk on the phone all the time. I don't know how you guys feel about HS reunions or bumping into old school mates, but it feels sort of surreal to me.

I ran into a girl I went to grammar school with and she was like 'Hi Gunngirl" and I COULD NOT REMEMBER HER NAME! I just said hey, then I ran into two more times after that. I prayed that would be it because I could never say her name and after three times I just couldn't go 'um, what was your name?"

Anyway, that's a small thought I had today.

    ...ah, memories. Yeah, I've noticed that most of the names of the people I went to HS with have fallen out of my brain (that extra brain space, was NOT refilled with anything useful either).

    Didn't go to my 10 year...kinda wished I had...but only a little. The BiB gals are the best (2 from HS & one from Jr High). I really didn't enjoy HS nor did I like most of my classmates. K-12 with the same group...teased since Kindergarten *sniff* *sniff* (one of very few Asians in a very white school).

    It's all good though...I'm a happy gal :D...not gonna go on a crazy shooting spree or drag my old classmates onto Geraldo or anything ;P. I've grown pretty comfortable with "me".

    Gunny:

    Umm in order to avoid those embarrassing name-forgetting situations, when people come up and say "Hey Undr!" and I don't remember their name, I just kick them in the shins and run like heck.

    But that's just me.

    Undr(I didn't even get invited to my ten year reunion. Like I care! Bastahds!)


    PS HDDivalicious: I'm glad you're comfortable with you, but it would be cool to take em on Geraldo and throw a chair in their faces. But not to hurt them, just to ...well hurt them. heh-heh
