20 Years? Already?

One of my class reunions is happening this weekend. I attended two different high schools here in Vegas, and I guess I'm fortunate enough to have been invited to both 20 year reunions (or not so fortunate, depending on how you look at it). 20 effing years. So if I was actually going to one of the two reunions, the one this weekend is the one I'd attend. These are the people I grew up with. I know I say all the time that I am still in touch with everyone from high school that really matters, but surely there are some people I'd like to catch up with. There's no one real reason why I don't want to go. I'm just apathetic about it, I suppose. I think a Pop-Up Video version of the reunion would be much more fun... a camera pans through the alumni and a little bubble appears over their head with little factoids. "Robert works 70 hours per week" or "Gina drinks 20 beers a day". Wouldn't that be more entertaining?

I enjoyed my 10-year reunion but couldn't make it to the 20th because I was in Europe.

I like your idea for the 20th. If you go, I can hardly wait to read about it.

I didn't go to my 30th...maybe I'll go to my 40th.

Nah.

I can't wait to hear about it! Just to let you know what they will be thinking when they see you "Holy Crap, look at Lora! She looks even better than she did 20 yrs ago, she's HOT!"

OH, was wondering what they would say about LoraLoo, thank's for filling in the pop-up Barb.

Your pop-up reunion idea rocks! I'd actually be interested if it could be done. That would be hilarious. I won't ever go to any high school reunions. If you do go, I hope you have a good time.

Oh and Barbara- love your Lora bubble, too cute.

I am toying with going to my 20th in August. None of my friends want to go with me, though and the idea of going on my own (well, with Ken of course) just does not do it for me. If your friends are not there with you, then who do you gossip with? Besides, I have to travel for mine. Yours ius right HERE! I think you should go and then write a scathing post about it after the fact. Can't wait to hear what you decide!

Oh! and how the hell did we get this old!?!?!?

I'm afraid that if anybody I knew from high school found my blog, they'd pretty much realize that I'd turned out the way everyone expected. Which pretty much means I'd get patted down for firearms at the door.

Love the pop-up video idea (boy, I miss that show!).

I am not going to Clark's. I was going to but just changed my mind. It is in September. I didn't like anybody then, Why would I go and start liking them now?

Cindy - OMG I totally screwed up, I was thinking this weekend was Clark's. It was Eldorado's. Ooops! Can you tell I really cared?
