Class of '89 reunion?

So I'm starting to get invitations and info pertaining to my junior high school reunion. What is the customary thing to do here, considering that a) I'd have to travel quite a bit to get to the "event", b) the sum total of people from this class roster I'm currently in touch with is zero, and c) the "event" is set to occur just around the time when my wife and I are expecting our firstborn.

Decisions, decisions.....

On a side note, the number of misspellings in the ~35 words that made up the official invitation letter make me inclined to believe that I've made it OK despite what junior high school I've went to rather than because of it...

...It was the summer of '89
Me and some guys from school
had a band and we tried real hard...


...yeah, I'm sure your wife would be pleased if she's going into labour when you're miles away partying with people you knew some 20 years ago...
;-)

Side note: None of the school I went to have had reunions. Ever. Or let me rephrase that: I haven't been invited to any reunions from the schools I went to.

LOL..that opens up for at least two interpretations

Only one comes to my mind ;)

Wilhelm said...

..are you suggesting that the organizing committees for any class reunions didn't put much effort into locating Anders, Pigeon?

T-bombz said...

I think they know exactly where he is at any time.

Wilhelm said...

....in the sense that even if you're paranoid it don't mean that you're not being followed?

Anders said...

I'm with pigeon on this one.
:-D

Wilhelm said...

.."Team Pigeon"?

Anders said...

Yes, and we're heading for "Det Store Korslaget" on TV2 tomorrow! Vote for Team Pigeon and The One Man Norwegian Tabernacle Choir!

Wilhelm said...

...considering the alternatives, I'd consider voting for y'all.

These are not choires so much as they are random collections of people who sing the same songs simultaneously

It takes a one man voting crew to push a one man choir over the top and go all the way!
:-)

What a crappy show that is. In fact, there are nothing worth watching in the weekends any more. At least not of the regular shows on the main stream channels.

Hence our cunning plan of having just one man singing. That will surely separate us from the masses, and make us a sure winner. Remember to place your bet early!

Have a nice weekend!

I don't team with people who can grow a moustache faster than me

In other words, I don't team

Pigeon said...

In other words, I don't team

and especially not with you ;)

Anders said...

Dang, that's harsh, pigeon.

Oh well, no fast lane to riches and fames for this boy, then.

Moustaches are important, huh?

The Norwegian choir environment has not been the same the last ten years, or so.

Anders said...

Remind me again, T-bombz: Is it about 10 years since you quit your career as a choir boy?

Some coincidence, huh?

Anders said...

Yes, it's amazing how those two totally independent events occured at the same time...
