Hey gang!

So…remember how I said I’m 99.9% sure I’m not going to my  20 year high school reunion? Yeah well, that .01% won out. I’m going! And I’m really excited about it. Did I mention that I just decided yesterday that I was going? Nothing like waiting till the last minute! 🙂

I posted something about not going on FaceBook and my friend Sonja said “well I’m not going if you’re not going” and I said “wha??? I’m not going because you said you weren’t going! Were you planning on going?” and she says, “Well we’re just going to the social on Friday night.” And I said, “Okay, well if you’re going to that then I’ll go to that” and she said, “Okay” and I said “cool!” So I called Shawn and bribed him and then I bribed the babysitter and booked a ridiculously expensive hotel room and at 3 pm today we will be on our way!! I think there are a lot of people who decided to go at the last minute because now all of a sudden all these people that I thought weren’t going, now are going – and these were the people I wanted to see. Yippee!

So of course I wish I were 20 pounds thinner and my hair was longer and I had a couple of super great outfits to wear, but ya know what? I DON’T CARE! Really, my goal tonight is to go and see old friends and laugh until my stomach hurts, not to impress anyone with my super expensive clothes or tiny toned body or long luxurious hair. I did go buy a new pair of jeans because it’s something I needed anyway, but I decided that I would make do with what I’ve got (because I just bought 4 new shirts a couple of weeks ago), and I can do my own nails, and as for the hair, well, it will be fine. The only thing I’m really kind of ticked about is that I have this tiny red spot right on the very tip of my nose. It’s not a pimple, just some kind of little red spot right at the very end, and no amount of makeup will cover it up (believe me I tried). And I’m sure that no one else will probably even notice it, but I feel like I’ve got a big red bulls eye on my face with arrows pointing to it that say “LOOK HERE”. Yeah, nice.

OH! And one of the best parts of going back to my hometown is this little dive called Taco Stop. This place is legendary – they have THE BEST Mexican food, and the first thing you do when you enter Hometown is go directly to Taco Stop for a Sancho Deluxe (apparently Deluxe is Spanish for “sour cream”) and a Coke – OH! And they have rabbit pellet ice (you know, the little round-ish balls of ice) and the fizziest Coke around! I am salivating just thinking about it! I can’t wait!!

I’m going to keep the alcohol to a minimum tonight because a) I don’t want to get outta control and b) I’m such a lightweight that it seriously only takes one 8oz drink to get me buzzing – I just don’t drink anymore, so on the occasions when I do – it takes very little to get me “happy”.

I could probably blather on and on about this, but I’ll keep it short today and maybe I’ll get a chance to post more this weekend. Of course that’s what I said last Friday, and I ended up sick all weekend, so maybe I’ll just wait til Monday! 🙂

Have a great weekend!
