Back in the day

Today has been a fun day of igniting old acquaintances. I got a meme from a dear friend in IL that I actually responded to *gasp*! I can't be counted on to respond to your email in less than a few months, but I'll answer questions about myself... har... anyway, I sent it out to a few people who I've been close with for a while, but have sort of lost touch (I'd blame the baby, but its not really her fault). Its a great way to say "Hey" and to maybe get something back.

Well, I've heard from 3 blasts from the past in the last few hours and my goodness is it cool! Its fun to see where they are, and their likes/dislikes and how similar we still are even though we've been separated by time, distance and experiences. Here's to reigniting old friendships!
