Grade 10

Here are the guys in grade 9 (we were a year older) hanging out in the caf. Its funny, they look a bit different now, but its shocking how much they haven't changed a zillion years later.

This seems to be a theme for me this week. I guess scanning old photos will do this for you or running into old friends.

My best friend from grade school - who I first met in grade 2 when she sort of invited herself to my party. I'm not sure she actually came because I probably had a limit on the number of people could have, but she might have. I actually remember that party with Carrie and Penny and all of our cabbage patch kids and a couple of girls from the circle.

She's a mom now with an adorable 2 year old. (This being the girl that drove me crazy by teasing me about liking Eric Taylor) We had a really nice visit. My parents were glad to see her too.

Anywho, this is my post for tomorrow. I'll probably post again tomorrow night, but not during the day. The excitement for the next few weeks. . . glasses shopping.



P.S. There is a guest book for Andrew Desmond in the star. A place where people can share their condolances or memories with the family.

P.P.S. For those of you (Geoff) who still haven't done my Johari window. The link is still there on the page. The Johari window for those who don't know what I'm talking about is this cool sort of personality quiz type thing where you have to pick 6 words off a list of about 60 to describe yourself, then other people can come to your site and pick six words from the same list that they think describe you. Its a neat excercise in understanding how you are precieved by others compared to how you precieve yourself. Generally, its a self esteem booster, since most of the choices are positive. Posted by Picasa

I'm sorry it took me so long to respond to you. I've been living in a daze that last two weeks.

I know it had been a long time since you two had been close, but I don't know if it comforts you to know that I had heard about you. He and I talked a lot about relationships and our pasts and I he had told me the story of you and him. I think he always considered you to be part of a stage in his life.

I'm not one to really believe in spirituality or the afterlife but I can't help but think that he would have been amazed and pleased that so many people cared about him... although, he would have scoffed it off and pretended he didn't care.

Thanks for the link to the pictures, I definately saved them.

Good luck with everything. I see you're headed to grad school which is very exciting. Take care.
