20 Years Already



Now and Then

This weekend is my 20 year class reunion. I am not going. I went to the 10 year and it was ridiculous. So many fake and drunk people. It was horrible. There are a few people I'd like to see, but not really that many, and they probably wouldn't be there anyway.


To be truthful, if I looked a little better, I'd probably make an effort to go. I just look so bad right now. I would be to embarassed to see anyone. I know that probably sounds stupid, but there it is.

I am feeling a little nostalgic though. I hope everyone that goes has a good time, and I really hope someone will fill me in on all the good gossip when it's all over.

Shoot, I had pimples on my face when I was your current age!!!! By the way, the 10 year reunion is fake, but 20+ years is different. Many have put away all the pretentions, and just show up to enjoy each others company. Have a reat 4th.

I'm with you, Drama Mama, I wouldn't be caught dead at my high school reunion.

Not curious enough about anybody, really, not anymore...

The other day my sister and I were at a garden centre and she said "There's a girl from our high school" and I just couldn't be bothered.

I had a tight night group of friends when I was in highschool and didn't bother with the rest...at least that is how I remember it.....but then again, its been more than 25 years for me....

And you don't look "so bad right now", I can't agree with that statement. You are a lovely lady.

High School? Feh! That was so 20 years ago!

You can fight me for Jon, and you might win, but NO FREAKING WAY are you getting RDJ.

The 10 is a waste of time and $$, but the 20?!?! You have to go! Nobody cares anymore, they just want to say hi. Our 15 should have been this year, but as there has been no word whatsoever on it, I'm guessing there isn't one. Which is just as well because although I'd like to go (warts and all!), we couldn't afford the gas!

Go. You'll be glad you did.

First off, I think you look GREAT! I have never gone to any of my reunions either. Those people I knew and want to still know, I do. Otherwise, who cares. Not to mention they usually WAY overcharge for those things!

First of all, you are a beautiful woman. I am large and I know it's a struggle with everyone putting so much emphasis on being skinny, but if I didn't go to things because I'm fat, I would be sitting at home all the time. Life is too short, I know, I work with dead people on a daily basis and they are not all older than me. Trust me on that. My friend, Jeannie, that I just put on my blog has a saying that I have really enjoyed lately. She will say, "It is what it is." I admit I get down on myself about losing the weight, but the older I get it just gets harder and I don't want to be in a struggle with myself day and night like I was for years. I totally agree with the folks that said the future ones will be easier. I have gone to my 10, 20,30 and last year I couldn't get away from work, but I had planned on going to my 40th. They are all much sweeter and easier to talk to. I have communicated with some that wouldn't give me the time of day in high school. I guess I am just so curious that I love to know what everyone is doing. By the time you are this old only a few look dynamic and they have had to pay a big price for it, if you get what I mean.:) I also love your gold dress. Do not put yourself down! You are a sweetheart!

I didn't go to my 20th either. I kinda regret it but as the days past by, I realized I was way past that stage in my life and according to those who did go, it was a drunk fest and boob fest (as in all the women who had boobs, fake or otherwise, did nothing but try and show them off most of the evening!). So, I was glad I did not go! I am soo past that! LOL
