2012

Near my subdivision they put up this big new billboard recently that says "2012: We Were Warned". I had no idea what it was for but now I know it's for this new movie coming out next month. Before I knew that, however, I kept thinking of all the things to which it could be referring. The one that kept coming to mind again and again is this one: my 20th high school reunion. That's right. In 2012 it will have been 20 years since I left the hallowed halls of good old LHS. I had casually entertained the idea of what it would be like to go to the 20th reunion - I haven't been to any others-but after considering that billboard I think it has a good message about that possibility. I was warned. A 20th high school reunion is not a good idea unless I am looking for material for yet another cliche in a movie scene or television show. Besides, with the advent of Facebook, I already know what many of these former classmates of mine are up to on a daily basis. And if they aren't photo-shopping all of their photos I even know what they look like doing all kinds of different things. ( I know what their pets look like too. So many photos of the pets.) The need for an in-person high school reunion is negated by social networking sites! Yeah!

How funny. I haven't heard of that movie. I am not a fan of class reunions, haven't been to one, and don't plan on it. Especially since that would involve travel now, why would I spend money on that?

I saw you commented on my blog, It's been a while, I was thinking about you! I didn't know you were on Facebook. If I don't find you, find me, k? :)

Isn't 2012 the year the Mayan calendar ends, and a lot of people believe they knew something about the world ending? Haven't heard of the movie though.

And gah to the 20th reunion. I can't believe that. I'm only 20 years old.

My old high school drama gang is putting together a reunion soon (thanks a lot facebook) and it excites/terrifies me.

Boo on reunions - except family and round robins. :)
