That got me thinking. I graduated 20 years ago. Apparently I'm not even on the list for my graduating class on classmates.com. According to that site there was one in 2008 and more people declined than said yes.

I'm just glad that I'm not officially lumped in with that place or those people. Ick.

I feel like the only purpose of high school reunions is rubbing your success in other people's faces. I have no success, and therefore I see no point in going to one.

I only actually attended the school I graduated from for half of my sophomore year. The next two years were at a vocational school career center. I was immediately adopted by a popular clique after moving to the town and was hilariously both "popular" and a pariah due to unintentionally climbing a social ladder that others spent their entire lives struggling with. So I really don't know most of the people I graduated with. I'd be glad to rub in their faces that I don't live there anymore but I'd really be interested to see which ones haven't died from an overdose.

I’m mildly curious to see who got knocked up (one person, that I know of), who’s in jail, who (else) died, what the hell happened to convince that one guy to get married, and whose life isn’t a complete mess, but yeah.

I love reunions. It's an opportunity to show everyone that I still wear all black (but in a suit now!), am still sarcastic, and I'm a raging alcoholic. Actually maybe now that I think about it I shouldn't go to other people's reunions.

I was at a Toyota dealership looking at what they had in a reasonable price range. Salesman shows me a Venza, which is not on the list of cars I am looking at, telling me it is a Matrix at first. I sit in the car to try it and get out. The conversation that follows is transcribed to the best of my recollection.

Salesman: Sorry, I was wrong, this is not a Matrix, it is a Venza.
Me: That was not on my list; I will have to look it up. What did you say it was called again?
Salesman: A Venza. Are you basing your buying decisions entirely on Consumer Reports?
Me: No, but that and the reliability rating from US News and World Report are what I am using to narrow down the cars I am looking at.
Salesman: Why would you rely on the opinion of another person for this? Why not try the cars and make a decision for yourself.
Me: Because knowing about cars is their job.
<Timelapse forward to when I am leaving>
Me: By the way, you sell Toyotas. Toyota dominates reliability ratings in both sources across almost every category. Are you sure "third-party reliability ratings aren't that important" is a pitch you want to be using?
Salesman: Well, I was just saying you shouldn't rule a car out based on what one person says about its reliability.

My dad is on the phone with Travelocity. Their on-hold music is currently Simon and Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound.”
