High School Reunion: Update


General observations about the night:

- It seems like almost everyone in Calgary is working in the oil and gas sector. Which isn't really that surprising.

- Only a small number of people had gotten fat. Most of them seemed to be looking after themselves.

- At least five people told me that I'd lost weight since high school. Really? Since high school?

- I went up to talk to someone I thought I recognized, and then realized (two days later) that she was not, in fact, the person I thought she was. This would explain why that conversation was so awkward.

- There are still people who go to the bar with the sole intention of getting right liquored up.

- A significant amount of my time was spent looking at people and thinking, "You look vaguely familiar, but I have no idea what your name is." But, then again, that's how I spend most of my life.

- Many of the people who I'd liked to have seen weren't there....

- ...but, I was glad to catch up with some of the people who were there that I hadn't expected to see.

In closing, it's probably best that no one tried to hug me - otherwise, I would have been tempted to pinch my friend Robyn and push her into the girl's bathroom, just to complete the row.

This post is hilarious but I'm sad you didn't get BINGO :( Maybe at the next reunion.

Speaking of - is anyone going back for homecoming ever again? The housemateys have discussed but 3/4 of us are in school so it won't be happening any time soon.

As it's only a short jaunt from Ottawa, we usually head down for Homecoming - but I think they've moved it to summer for a few years, or until such time as the Aberdeen shenanigans die down. Sad face.
