av8rmike: Optimus Prime on Obama poster; text: "Change into a truck" (change)
I haven't been in much of a mood to update lately, in case anyone has been concerned. I spent all of my working time last week in a sort of training session for some stuff for work. Fortunately the working days were shorter, so I was getting up and getting home at my usual times. Unfortunately, the training was at a Navy lab that's 45 miles away, on the other side of DC. So, I spent an hour or more driving each way. At least I could file for a local mileage reimbursement.

I left a little early on Friday so Jamie and I could drive up to Pennsylvania. One of my close friends from college was having her "pirate-themed post-wedding parrrrr-ty" on Saturday morning and we were staying at my mother's place. Not only would we have to drive into Pittsburgh early that morning, we'd also be missing Rosh Hashanah services. I know that I had a much better time at the wedding party, bees and all. Since the party was over mid-afternoon, we took a little driving tour of Pittsburgh, then a walking tour of my college and my old house. It's always interesting how much has changed and yet how little has changed.

I see the people doing the yearbook picture meme have gotten to senior year today. Coincidentally, when I was back home last weekend, I grabbed my high school yearbook to take back with me. It was not really for any one reason, although I have been seeing more HS people crop up on Facebook. For a few of them, I've actually wracked my brain trying to put a face from 15 years ago with the name. It doesn't help when the women change their names and don't use the maiden name.

However, no, I will not be scanning and posting my senior year picture. If you already know what I look like now, I have two words for you: hockey hair.

Besides that, it's not like I have painfully awkward memories of high school. I was glad to leave it all behind and get to college.

We still have the house on the corner, SAE still has the lions, and people still sit on that wall. I half-expected to see Dan Goldstein sitting there, since it seemed like he was always out there. Some of my fondest memories are sitting on that wall, talking to Dan and Handy, or just watching everyone.
