oh, and  
Tonight is my twenty-year high school reunion. Once I saw that very few of the people I really liked from my year weren't going to be there, it made the decision not to go pretty easy.

I don't even feel particularly old. Must have been a good week or something, heh.

I haven't been to any of my reunions, and I graduated in 1966. Most of my friends don't go either.

Our ten year was pretty lame. Wasn't all that interested in the 20-year after that, but it was also right before the wedding and would've been pretty crazy to squeeze it in. Am glad though that so many of the folks I want to stay in touch with have gotten back in touch over the years thanks to various sorts of social networking.

You didn't miss much. =)

There were a few people I thought were going to be at mine who weren't, but mostly it was okay. The thing that convinced me was seeing the pictures from the 1989 reunion on Facebook. Everyone looked like they were having such a good time!

It was neat to see people and talk to people, but we had the worst DJ in the history of the world so there was no fun dancing, and a bunch of drunk people are never that much fun especially if you can't dance, so all in all: glad I went, so I could check that off, and never do it again.

I attended my 10 year reunion, and none of the people I would have most wanted to see attended. For those that did attend, it was interesting to catch up with them, but at the same time I found I had almost no common ground with them and little to talk about. I didn't really feel any sense of loss not being able to connect with them.

Then again, we also moved around a lot while I was growing up, so I didn't get to establish long-term friendships very often. That didn't really start to happen until the age of the Internet. When distance was no longer a barrier to connection.

I ended up skipping my 20 year reunion. I haven't decided if I want to attend 30 year.

I moved around a lot, also. I made my closest friends in the high school I spent my first two years at. Appropriately enough, I didn't get a 10-year reunion invite from either high school!

My ten-year was a bit amusing. I was considering going, but had decided against it, when they decided to cancel due to low expected attendance. So they instead just said people could show up at a bar near where I was working at the time. I swung by, and no one recognized me, and I barely recognized anyone. So I had a drink and headed out to play video games instead.
