grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

the 10 year reunion email

I got an email about my 10 year reunion today. Interesting. There are only few people that I graduated with that I would really love to know how they are (and they are probably the people not likely to come back for a reunion). And the majority of them, I am only mildly interested in (curious, is perhaps a better word). I was really a totally different person in HS (thank god). So, going through the stupid "profile" thing on classmates.com I felt an overwhelming need to assert my new self through the inane profile questions. I only answered a few- that I have a partner, and that I am in Madison WI. Then, I put as my "life profile" what I am doing in Madison, WI. So there, people who thought I was nothing but a "cream puff" (they used to say- "nice, but not much inside"). I definitely have a "see how well I am doing" attitude with people from my HS which is probably pretty universal. I also looked through some other people's profiles. The only questions people really answered where the first 2 (pretty lame) questions: 1) what are your political beliefs and 2) what kind of pets do you have. Many people were "conservative" (yikes) and many said of their political views "it depends on the issue" (yikes). And many have cats. And fish. Interesting. But, I am from a small HS, with a pretty hardcore alumni association. Everyone comes back from reunions so I will attend (as long as Jony comes along otherwise there is no way in hell).
