Today is my ten year high school reunion.  I'm going to go today with one of my old buddies from high school (and college), her husband, and another old high school friend.  At first I was looking forward to it.  Now though, I'm not so sure I want to be there.  I thought about it more and I'm like...why am I going to this?  I only had 3 true friends there and as far as I know, only one is coming (the one I'm going with).  I had a few people that I could talk to all right.  Acquaintances really.  And everyone else, I either didn't give a rat's ass about or I hated their guts because they made my high school (and middle school) years miserable.  I feel like I haven't changed a bit since then and I can see myself being a fifth wheel because I bet you everyone there is married and I am very much not.  

I guess the only people that I may be interested in seeing is my old drama class.  That may be fun.  Or hurtful if they don't even remember me.  (sighs)

And to top it all off, I felt a headache coming on when I was brushing my teeth this morning.  I took my prescription headache med hoping to nip it in the bud.  I can only hope that will help.  Why is it whenever I have a potentially fun/good day ahead of me, it ends up being a day I get a nasty headache?  I expect it not to go away, it will become worse and ruin not only tonight but tomorrow with my other dear friends as well.  (sighs)  Sorry to be dumping on you my friends.  I just really needed to fuss and vent at something or someone.  Sorry you were the lucky people.  Hope everyone else is having a good day.

On the positive...a reunion is a great place to get all the people you disliked in one place and....

ANYWAYS, it reminds me of this short scifi story I read. It was about this man who was picked on and tormented all through high school. Later on in life he becomes a scientist and has learned how to precisely predict earthquakes. And he's just predicted where the next one will occur and what magnitude it is. Just as he's about to go public with his findings he learns his high school reunion is about to occur. Right where the next quake will happen. It's being headed by the people he hated most during high school. It's also a place where there are underground storage places for oil/gas. He postpones releasing his findings by saying he's found a few problems with them. Then sits back and waits, safe in the knowledge his revenge will be sweet.

That short story was so much awesome. I still have the book it came from too. Just remembering it makes me want to read it again. I think it was titled Microcosmic Tales.

That sounds very interesting and entertaining. I will have to borrow that book one day. After I finish Harry Potter. And all the manga I've recently bought. ^_^

My sympathies on the headache. I've been fighting a stomach virus for the past couple of days myself.

Sympathies on the stomach virus _gerald. Does this mean dani and you aren't coming down this weekend?

Oh no! So it is a stomach virus? My sympathies and I hope you are feeling better/feel better soon. As Prez asked, are you and Dani going to have to cancel this weekend?
