See You In Hell!

Survived Minotia!

Okay, granted i missed my 10-year reunion (a few weeks past) but that was the weekend when both Amycita and the rents were in town, so i think that was probably better than getting tanked and potentially telling people in high school that they f'ing suck for making my life suck? (or at least something sucked a hell of a lot. may have just been teen angst, who knows? it seems that some people loved high school tho and those people have always confused the hell out of me. there were good parts, but damn, overall? wouldn't want to re-live that for anything).

A prize memory was I wore a black ribbon around my neck. I heard everything from 'when you take that off, does your head fall off?' to 'you're a whore' and then the next year the preppie chix all wore chokers and such from claires and thot they were the shit? ahh, the joys of being young.

any thots on 10-years or reunions in general? i've heard the 10 year can often be a high school flashback (not good, obviously) while the later ones are better.

anywho, went back to mindrot this past weekend and had a nice time hanging w/ the rents. we went to the josh duhamel restaurant and it was actually pretty good, especially for minot! However, when i got to a fancypants restaurant, i expect the waitstaff to NEVER hand me a plate, but instead, put it on the table, no matter how oddly shaped the table is and how they may require go-go-gadget arms to do it. the unexpected happened and yes, i'm a food snob and go to too many fancy restaurants, but i have a love of truffles (not the sweets) and other snooty foods, so what am i to do?

the rents are doing well and it's always good to see them and my friend Lisa, who I've known since i was 5 and she still totally kix ass.

beyond that, driving that long is kinda sucky, but it's good to be home and see my whiny baby! Mr. Pabs, beyond being extremley meow-ee, made it through just fine.

I didnt go to my 10-year reunion....absolutely no interest. I have a feeling that it would have been like Joan Cusack's line in Grosse Pointe Blank:
"Yes, I did (go to my reunion). It was just as if everybody had swelled".
Either that, or like something out of Romy & Michele's High School reunion...but without Justin Theroux in a cowboy hat, so really, what was the point?

I went. It was completely surreal and absolutely fascinating to see who had changed, who hadn't and, yes, how everone had swelled.

I weigh almost exactly 100 pounds more than I did in high school. It's not that I'm freakishly huge now, but I was freakishly skinny then.

No plans on attending any reunions anytime soon.

I know that this has nothing to do with reunions, but dammit, I swear to god that my cats piss pure ammonia. I'm one Ryder truck and some fertilizer away from a massive explosive device here.

Jege, are you saying that you are in possession of the missing KMDs?

(That's Kittens of Mass Destruction for those of you not 'in the know' like me and Thomas. They tell us all the top secret stuff in law school.)

KMD...I like that. I WAS gonna say PMDs.......

....I really think the name "pussies of mass destruction" would be a good name for an all-female punk band (or an an effeminate barbershop quartet).

And, of course, Effeminate Barber Shop Quartet would be a great name for a punk band.

You're brilliant. Your life is spared. I'm not actually a 747 pilot anyway.

Right you are, Jim. The Effeminate Barber Shop Quartet actually opened for Pussies of Mass Destruction at Lollapalooza 3.

Can I post a comment on here as a sister-in-law?

My comment is that my high school class wallows in lameness. Our 10 year reunion was supposed to be in 2003, but I think that that higher math escaped the attention of the cheerleader class officers. They just totally missed the boat. Lame. Then in 2004, the ever-so-popualr 11 year reunion year, there were rumblings in April of a reunion-ish get together in a hotel in downtown Boston for that fall. Those rumblings petered out into nothingness, and in 2004 - still no 10 year reunion! Lame. I'm not holding my breath for 2005, and if those wankers can't even organize a 10 year reunion, do I even want to see them?

The answer to that last question has always been no, but some part of me wants to go back and flaunt the fact that my IQ is twice as high as theirs.

word to your mom.

That is funny, K-dawg :)

Jege, K-Funk is Kendra--my sister-in-law :)

(at least I'm pretty sure that Amycita doesn't have a coolio sistah-in-law named K-funk, if so, freaktastically small world)

I thought it might be Kendra...but then the Boston thing threw me off.
I hope she comments more often! Glad to have a Leingirlz sistah-in-law in the virtual fold!!!

What/where/why is there a Josh Duhamel restaurant?!? Did he open it? Or is it a theme restaurant based on his life and times?

The josh duhamel restaurant is in Minot, it's called 10 north main. it's a rather fancy place (probably the most expensive in Minot--comparable to a nice place not in minotia). it is thankfully not a theme restaurant, but one opened by him and some friends apparently.

the decor is actually quite nice altho there is a freakin' tv at the bar, which is awful, but oh well, it's mindrot.

the food was more interesting and better than a lot of the other places in minot, but it's still there and it was kind of funny. the waitress said the fish was SUPER fresh cuz they flew it in on Tuesday! we went there Friday. i dunno about you, but considering the boat probably didn't hover above the ocean waiting to pick up the darned fish, it was probably a week old by the time it was friday in minot and really, that isn't what i'd call bragging-rights fresh, but what can ya do?

it was fun though and the salad dressing was very tasty as was the food overall. the baked potato was wonderful, oddly enough, and the skin was really clean.

I went to all my high school reunions. We have had exactly 2. I have been out of high school for over 20 years now. --that sounds extremely fucked up in print, but it is true. I checked.--

Anyway, the first one was 15 years. I think the only people who show up at the first reunion, no matter when it is, are the people who have something to show off. You know, the ones who are still skinny, or who are newly skinny. (I just went to look.)

Then the 2nd reunion is just for the people who have absolutely nothing better to do in their lives. This is the reason I went. Stay home with kids vs. high school reunion.

For the record, I absolutely hated high school. Absolutely, unequivocally, and without doubt.
