Think I’ll Collapse…Now

Saturday, November 24th, 2007, 3:51 am

Had a very nice time at my reunion, drank just enough to render me interesting, but I decided not to go to the bar everyone was gathering at afterwards. For one thing, by the time Matt drove me to Mark’s house to retrive my car it was pushing 1:30AM, and I didn’t want to get to the place just as it was closing. Second, I was already pretty polluted, and another beer or two might’ve left me sleeping it off in my car. And it’s gonna be chilly tonight, even for a well-upholstered fellow as myself.

Took a whole lotta pictures…I either need to take a photography class, or I gotta start yelling at people to STAND STILL, GODAMMIT. It was fairly dark in the hall and taking pictures of folks on the dance floor was not a winning proposition. But if you want to see the pictures I took, you can find them here at my Flickr page.

Quick question–when three or four people say, "You look EXACTLY the same as you did in high school"…that’s an insult, right? I was pretty much a walking disaster area in high school–I’m EXACTLY the same? I’m not more sophisticated, more dashing, I don’t possess a certain je ne sais quoi that I lacked during 7th period shop class? What the hell have I been doing that last 20 years?

I’m beat, I’m fried, I’m wery sleepy–call it what you like, I’m going to bed. A much more interesting and humorous post will arrive on the morrow. Once I’ve had a chance to collapse for a few hours.

    Damn, Gene. We all know you were hoping not to get shit faced.

    Well, better luck next time.

    Gene,
    When people say you look the same take it as a compliment. Woman do, because often having kids it changes a person so when somebody says you look the same………. take it and run!

    Now if you came sporting a “Mullet” than I’d worry.

    Loved the photos! Good job and thanks for capturing the moments. It just flew by so fast that I ddin’t get any photos.

    Of course, since Carla wrote something, I have to as well (NOT!) When you mentioned that you are a blogger, I knew I had to look into your blogs. They are very interesting as you are too! I liked your 100 interesting facts about you. I think you are an out-of-the-box thinker! Thanks for the pictures! It was nice to see you again!

    Looking the same is a compliment. It means you look young and youthful!

    Hi Gene–I agree with the girls above 🙂 You look great and definitely, it is a compliment!! It was great to see you at the reunion and let me tell you–you are still as nice and kind and sweet as you were in high school–never let that end 🙂

    I’ll be checking in to read about you more often now 🙂

    Thanks for taking the pics…..
