I’d like to take a moment to interupt the “Random Factoid” series.. you may see me do this once in awhile.. only because I probably found something interesting to blog about that needed immediate attention.

This is one of those instances.. well.. maybe it doesn’t need IMMEDIATE attention.. but it’s a nice change from the series..

So.. I forgot to make mention of how my high school reunion went.. and I’d like to do so now..

The venue was nice and small.. perfect size for the amount of people that had showed up.. which wasn’t many.. surprisingly..  I mean.. we had several hundred members of our graduating class.. and I think we only had a hundred.. if less.. show up.

It was interesting seeing all the people again.  I wasn’t one of the popular girls.  I wasn’t a cheerleader.  I wasn’t Homecoming Queen.  I wasn’t known by everyone.  I was just me.  I had my close set of girlfriends and we all still keep in touch.  It wasn’t like I was there to reconnect with people I lost touch with.. because the people that mattered the most were still in my life.

Everyone pretty much looked the same.  Ten years older.. and a little heavier.  I guess that’s what ten years does.. people get married.. they have babies.. and they settle.. that’s the way life goes..

I got to talk to some people that actually remembered me.. even though I had no clue who they were.. it was nice to know  that I was actually remembered.. so that was nice.

Overall.. it was an interesting experience.. it made me feel good about myself and how much I have accomplished over the years.. and selfishly..  I was really glad I hadn’t gained as much weight as most of the class did.. but that’s just me and my fear of weight gain.. which we will get to when I continue to chug down the trail of my blog series.. “Random Factoid..”

How’s that for a plug?!?!

Well.. I’m not what most people consider “short..”

But I am sweet.. when I wanna be..

Anyway.. I have learned that short, sweet, to the point blog entries get a lot of hits.. there isn’t much reading involved.. and the amount of rambling is at a minimum..

So I’m going to try to keep it that way..

Today is my 10-year high school reunion.  I’m excited.  I still talk to some of my close high school friends.. and through the magic of myspace.com and facebook.com I have been able to reconnect with a lot of people that I went to high school with.

I wasn’t popular at all.  I knew some people and not many people knew me.  I was a nerd.. I’ll admit that.  But it’d still be nice to touch base with a lot of people from my past.

My ex-boyfriend will be there.  We went out for four years.  Two years of high school and two years of college.. so that should be interesting.. my current boyfriend is coming with.. so he should have fun learning about me.. hahahah!

I have decided to begin a blog series.. I’m calling it.. “Random Factoids..”  perhaps I’ll make a category for it.. but I think it qualifies under “Random-isms..” so it’d be quite redundant..

I’m basing this series off a Facebook meme that made us list 25 facts about us.. I reposted it on my Blogger blog.. here..

You can click the link to read the complete list.. and the series will go through each factoid.. and give a little detail and backstory..

By the end.. you will know more about me than my own boyfriend!  Maybe I should get him to read it.. he may learn a thing or two.. then he can decide if he wants to keep me!
