Speaking of

Speaking of High School newspapers and Matt's impending reunion, a friend of mine sent me to highschoolalumni.com a while back. As a result of some email I got from someone there, I found classmates.com which links to a high school bulletin board on delphi.com. Now I'm getting email left and right from people I haven't seen in 18-20 years, and it's a little freaky. The best so far was from my freshman year biology lab partner. She was totally the Roller Disco Queen at Skate City, and even had a Linda Blair-esque Roller Boogie picture in the yearbook. We didn't really know each other, so when she said "I too, am very fuzzy on high school days. It just seems like a life time ago, but I do remember you well", I took it as a compliment. It may seem silly, but I would hate to be forgettable. You see, Matt? You don't *have* to go back, you can interact with all the people you don't want to see again from the comfort of your own home.

Actually, when classmates.com first launched (it was about '95 or '96), I think I signed up, just to see if I could hook up with the nerds (not my tight circle of friends, but people I interacted with). I figured the nerds from school would be early adopters and probably have signed up. There was only one other person, and I hadn't heard of her before, so I think I deleted my account then. I went back a few months ago when my brother showed it to me (his year had loads of people signed up), but my year was still pathetic.

I guess I don't really see any reason to interact with my former classmates, so if they find me now and send a message, great. I doubt it will ever happen though.
