Nicely done, Peter! There is an immense satisfaction in getting projects done by yourself--especially when building things.

By the way, it was the Shout Box where the gate came up.

No kidding. I look at it every day and it makes me stick my chest out a little bit. ;\)

Wow! It's been awhile since I've logged in. First of all, thanks to those who send me an IM concerned about the flooding here. Thankfully, I was not personally affected by it. I hope everyone else around here was safe from it as well!

Anyway, on the weekend of the 27th & 28th, I attended my 20th high school class reunion. What a blast! I recommend everyone go to their class reunions if they can because you end up talking to a lot of people that you never even talked to while in school. I wish I had gotten to know many of them a long time ago. Of course, most people have changed since then, but some didn't...

Here's one of the highlights of the event. For some reason, I decided to go up to this girl whom I thought was the biggest b*tch in school and tell her all about it! \:o Of course, she didn't even remember my name, and I don't think it registered even *after* I told her. Anyway, the look on her face was priceless...a mixture of confusion and shock. I tried to ease her discomfort by saying, "yeah, but it was 20 years ago...", but boy, I couldn't help but enjoy every minute of it! She changed the subject right away then immediately started talking to someone else, and couldn't wait to get away from me.

The next night, it made a story. As I was telling people about it, apparently, she was too. Obviously, she forgot my name again because people were like, "oh, it was YOU?" I started feeling guilty about it by that time, so I asked everyone if I just imagined she was so mean. Nope...everyone agreed except for her own snotty friends. I'm terrible, aren't I? I guess it was MY turn to be a b*tch!

The only thing I regret is drinking too much the first night because I forgot what I had asked everyone...or if I remembered what I'd asked, I couldn't remember the answers! So, Saturday night, with a clearer head, I apologized to people for having to ask the same questions again. What's funny is that most of them were equally hammered and didn't remember anything either!

Here's a couple of pictures. The first one is with my two best friends from school whom I still keep in contact with. I could tell you stories upon stories about the three of us! We were some wild and crazy gals! The next picture was taken right after I talked to the mean girl...who is the tall one standing next to me.

Anyway, we aren't so bad looking for some 38 yr. olds, are we? ;\) People kept telling me I look exactly like I did in high school. I hated hearing that, but I guess it was meant as a compliment.

Mary, good to hear from you again and that you weren't harmed by the flooding, but yes, shame on you for saying that to that bitch!

38! Sigh

Good to hear from you, Mary. So glad to find you weren't affected by the flooding.

Gotta agree that reunions are very special.

Good to see you again, Mary, or should I say Zoe:



Feel free to Muppetize your avatar like the rest of us have done!

I had my 20th HS reunion 2 years ago, but I wasn't as brave as you. The guys that were jerks then are still jerks now.

Thanks for the pictures!

Hey, welcome back, Mary!

Now you've got me thinking about high school. I haven't kept in contact with anyone. Skipped right over the 10th reunion. Still a few years away from the 20th, but now, after reading about yours, it seems like a fun idea to attend.

Also, glad to hear the flooding didn't affect you! That's good news.

Nice to see you back Mary and good to hear the floods didn't affect you. I never did go to any reunions, your post kind of makes me wish I did.

I missed my 10-year reunion, but perhaps by my 20th, I'll be successful enough to arrive in a Ferrari.
