Karl just reminded me of stuff.

this Saturday we'll be seeing Louis C.K. at the Improv in DC. And on June 2nd we'll be attending the HBO Comedy Hour taping for lil Jimmy Norton. The mail about it actually asks you to "dress sharp" hehehe

The cats have decided they don't like their food. So they aren't eating it. Instead they spent the ENTIRE night last night walking all over me. I slept intermitently until about 5 this morning when they finally pissed me off so much I couldn't get back to sleep. Thankfully I think they focused the annoyance on me instead of Karl so he still got a little sleep... until I woke him up accidentally.
Maybe that's why I'm so cracked out today. Just a simple lack of sleep.

I sort of randomly MySpace encountered an old friend from high school. He's the person who got me to listen to Primus and gave me a nickname that sort of stuck. Well, okay... *he* used it. He was always super cool and one of the few people I can think of from High school that it would be cool to still be in contact with. A lot of the people I hung out with day to day back then aren't really the kind of people I dig on these days. Like... I'd still like to find out what happened to my friend Chuck. Beyond that and beyond mild curiosity I can't think of other people I'm really into getting back to knowing.

I don't really have high school ennui or some romanticized version of events, so maybe I don't have that need to get back in touch with everyone because I remember exactly how dumb, silly, banal, etc. we all were (me included).


I dunno - how many of you have or would in the future hook up in a reunion type thing for your high school or college?

I went to a HS reunion a few years back, and it turned out to be a lot better than I expected. YMMV.

On the first read-through I read "YMMV" as "Yummy"

Re: yummy, yummy, i've got love in my tummy
I've been a long time fan of Louis C.K. I'm definitely a fan. He's definitely not for everyone though.


You have social skills, Ken? When did that happen?

I have references
"Marginal" social skills.

It's been a cumulative thing over the past decade. Co-hosting a buttload of Planned Parenthood Young Leaders things has forced me to be able to approach strangers and be all social and shit. Turns out, that at times i can be one charming-ass motherfucker.

You met me at a nascent stage of said skills. Plus, there was that other Chuck guy whose surrounding aura of antisociality smothered what urbane grace i had.

Re: I have references
I find that it's difficult for a lot of people to really feel "comfortable" around Chuck. He's nice enough, so I'm not really sure what it is. He's another one I haven't had any contact with in years. Since sometime in '02 when he drove up and hung out for a day or two. I hope he isn't in College Station anymore. He's in that 'late 30's' bracket at this point and picturing him still hanging around Gumby's Pizza and trying to diddle college girls is just too sad of an image.

I could say the same thing about you , Les. I can count on one hand the people from high school that I'd like to see again.

I've randomly encountered (and avoided) bumping into a few people while I still lived down there. Ducked behind a car and pretended I didn't see them kind of avoidance. Heh. People that I was *always* around, too.

Heh - you have a livejournal. Extremely disused, but still. That kills me. I'm having a long weekend with my husband but I'll be around this week on a messenger or two so I'll find you and we can catch up.
