Coffee Mugs and Classmates.com April 25, 2006

Posted by table4five in Uncategorized.

I’m so happy that my t-shirt is getting such a great response from my readers. I forgot to mention that if you buy a shirt, please email me a picture of you wearing it and I’ll post it here and add a photo gallery to the sidebar.

Also, Mrs. Fortune and Arabella asked for a mug, so I added a large mug to the shop. I only added a $2.00 profit on that because I just couldn’t see asking people to spend $15.00 on a mug. I wonder how I could add an image of an empty piggy bank to my sidebar and show it filling up as I make sales. Anyone know how to do that?

So here’s something completely dumb and juvenile to think about-why does the thought of seeing my old High School friends fill me with fear and dread? My band teacher is retiring, and there’s a party for him at the High School, and I just got a Classmates.com email from an old friend asking me to come.

My very first thought? I can’t let these people see me when I weigh 175 pounds! When they last saw me I weighed barely 100 pounds. They’ll think I died and was replaced by a small elephant.

Can I seriously be worrying about what my old friends might think of how I look? And wondering how weird it will be to see my old boyfriend Bill, who married my old best friend Kelly, the writer of the aforementioned email. At our 10 year reunion, he ignored me in a way that told me he was actually paying a lot of attention to me, but didn’t want me to think he was, you know? We dated on and off for four years, he would “go with” me, then “go with” Kelly for a while, then come back to me. How pathetic is that?

The more I think about it, the more I think that High School was a long, long time ago, and I’m not looking for any kind of validation from people I knew way back then. I’ll send the band teacher a lovely card congratulating him on his retirement and leave it at that.

Update: Are you watching American Idol? I missed Katherine, but ELLIOTT! Wow. Although I could have done without Paula crying. Boo-hoo, blah blah blah.

I feel the same way, Elizabeth. I have to tell myself that really, in the grand scheme of things, people seeing me who haven’t since I’ve birthed two children is *not* that big of a deal.

But I know how you feel.

I’m not big on high school reunions. I’ve been a no-show for both of mine. If I were you, I would totally send a nice card and leave it at that, but that’s completely up to you.

Thanks for adding the mugs!

I swear to God Paula Abdul is on drugs! And as for High School? The day I graduated I left it behind and have never returned.

Okay, Kellee MUST go tonight, she was just incredibly horrible. And Katharine? Can we say “boobs on the school bus”? I’m sorry but that dress was hideous …

And I’m with marcie on the high school thing. haven’t gone to a reunion, done anything like that, so … but it’s cuz I’m a wimp, and I don’t think you are.

I was toying with the idea of going to my 20th HS reunion next year, and actually subscribed to a listserv about it. But hearing all my old classmates talk and act like everything’s so different now just remind me that the more things change, the more they stay the same. I don’t need to relive that part of my life. I am glad I am not the only one. 😉

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number
of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
