i have been thinking about our upcoming reunion and realizing that this will be the high school reunion i never had. better, though, since i was closer to a lot of you than anyone i ever met in hs.

the people i was close to back in the day have had an incredible influence on my life. and i have a kiddo with a man i met through wendell. so life has had a lot of che threads running through.

what does this look like for you? i know the boys, and a few girls, are super stoked to hit the stage together, but what about seeing everyone who knew you when?

i'm no cheerleader, but reconnecting in this way makes me happy.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to the reunion at least as much as playing. But then again, Manual Scan never really broke up. We just took a very long break. Our last--four shows, I think it's been--have been a blast because of the people there. It's been a mini-reunion of sorts each time. Especially the last one where we once again opened for The Penetrators.

What I'm really looking forward to is finding some time apart from all the hoopla and noise, and being able to have some nice conversations with people who still--after all these years--mean so much to me.

When I saw that you had posted, Mike, I knew what you were going to say before I even clicked. And not to get mushy, but, yeah, after all these years, I'm glad I can still call you friend, and while we talk, it's never enough.

Oh, come on, Mike, we have no secrets. Hell, you've poked both me and my wife . . . with your tattoo needle. (Oh, come on, people, what were you THINKING?)

Har! This is all I saw as I went off to another page, and quickly hit the brakes and reversed as I realized what I thought I'd just seen.

And as I did so I thought to myself, "Man- those fuckers were over the top!"
