20 year reunion
Went to my 20 year reunion tonight. Basically food and drinks in the lobby of the school.

Enjoyed myself for the most part. Most people seem to be doing well.

A few people look a little worse for the wear. But a larger number have aged quite well. Not too many single people left though. Wives and husbands and kids are the game.

The bad part though I sound like the gloomy one. Cause the first thing anyone says to me is What are you up to now? Jason says I should just say stuff like I'm doing fine. but I'm not so good at that. It's not so bad. I just feel like the Eeyore of the group tonight.

On the plus side, I had a hot date. She wore a 1970s denim jumpsuit, cause she had a theme part afterward. That sounded good to me, so I stopped by Red Light this afternoon and picked up a pair of houndstooth pants (polyester, natch), polyester patterned shirt, and a jacket to go with. I wanted bell bottoms, but the store didn't have any that fit and I didn't feel like traipsing from store to store. Sadly, I forgot to take pictures. Eventually I'll get the ones from the event though.

So you went to the reunion in 70s garb, too? That is completely awesome. :)

I'm glad you went, and glad you had a good enough time. I sort of wish my school had reunions, but I'd mostly like to be a fly on the wall for it, since it'd be really difficult for me to attend.

Love you.

xoxo

I know you are strugling. but no one wants to hang out with eeyore. So for superficial stuff like partys, club ect keep it light. your true friends are just a phone call away, remember that. Once someone gets to know you(like a girl) then you can talk about more about what is going on with your self and your family. You are much better looking than in highschool. you retired two years ago. You have goten over most of your shyness which lets people get to know the true you. Which has also helped me out. It hard to tell everone how cool you are then when they meet you you say two words. You have a lot to offer, remember that.

You were rockin' the polyester and you were NOT gloomy. Great to see you (in person) again.
