That said, my alma mater does throw a helluva high school reunion. It says something that after all this time, my classmates would pop up from across the country, from San Fran and Portland and a few from Europe, just to see each other again. I saw a lot of people I hadn't seen since out mutual graduation, and found that the ones I loved then, I still love now. Comforting, that.
Didn't spend as much time with many of them as I'd've liked - so many people there, so little time for one on one conversations, and I'll never really be comfortable in crowds. Sad. But Gahagabunny, Marci, MJ the incomparably wonderful, Gina, Gina, Froggy, and all the rest - it was wonderful seeing you again. And in a further vote for moving here, turns out a fair number of my old compatriots live here in DC and environs, including one who lives not but a few Metro stops away. Funny ol' world.
All in all, a good weekend. Wish I had another day before having to run away to work and the joy of being a new associate lawyer, but ya can't have everything - where would you put it?
