  • Weird!
    Last night I almost called you.
    I was sit­ting on the front porch lis­ten­ing to the high school band prac­tice. Remind­ed me of those good old days.
    I love and miss you.

  • ah yes. i was think­ing about high school the oth­er day too. its amaz­ing how much can hap­pen in just 4 years. and does­nt 10x400x80x20 sound like a secret code or some­thing. i remem­ber that all too well too. miss the crap out of it. now you got me thinkin and remem­berin. those were the days

  • Wow,your high school expe­ri­ence is the exact oppo­site of mine. Mine was like this: get up late,wander in wear­ing what­ev­er was on the floor,breeze through class­es with­out acu­tal­ly say­ing a sin­gle word,have my lunch in the library where I would do the home­work I was sup­posed to have done the night before,wander around for the rest of the day,try to stay awake in math,openly fall asleep in Science,go home,putter around,sleep. Rinse and repeat. I invent­ed the word “wall­flower”. Seri­ous­ly.

  • not a whole lot adam. liv­ing in san fran­cis­co, cal­i­for­nia, vis­it­ing home right now. actu­al­ly my job has had me in san mateo coun­ty, home of the scott peter­son trail, and a place that adver­tis­es itself as hav­ing per­fect weath­er (and it’s no joke). how about your­self? how is “the life”? hoep­ful­ly all is well. the best any­one can hope for. be hap­py.

  • Heya Adam! Doub told me he googled my name & found this. Neato. I’m on google thanks to you! I’ll always remem­ber our awe­some HS days, and Snoball with you, Katie & Jeff. 🙂 Miss ya! Email me or ‘myspace’ me some­time. 🙂

  • wow…i just kin­da stum­bled on to this…google strikes again. it’s nice yr first crush was in my father’s math class, in a class i’m pret­ty sure i was in…the things i could tell you about her would astound you. oh, and del­bert daw­son was the stinky fella’s name. more of a addict then a deal­er. and i could guess who you are, but that would take the fun out­ta you telling me.
