A Pocket Full of Murder

Meetings and Greetings

In reference to the "Senior Picture Meme" that's been going around -- would you believe I don't have a senior picture? But it's the truth. I have pictures of myself at that age, but no school pictures, and definitely no graduation picture.

It's funny -- I was extremely anxious to get good marks and maintain a high average all through high school, but when it came to my actual graduation, my English teacher had to bully me into going at the last minute. And even at that, I opted out of wearing a cap and gown (a decision I did not in the least regret, especially when I looked around the school auditorium and saw a hundred of my fellow students sweating it out in their robes).

Anyway, I will have to scrounge around in my photo album and see if I can find any amusing pictures circa 1987. But not today.


In other news, I met risti for the first time today. We've known each other since 2003 or so, having met way back in HP fandom. But this was the first time we'd had the chance to get together, since she lives about a thousand miles away. Anyway, it was a nice experience -- we chatted about books and fandom and our respective experiences in church and Bible college, and browsed around a couple of bookshops, and drove all over creation because I kept getting turned around, and had a nice lunch in a restaurant overlooking Lake Ontario. Hope the rest of your visit goes well, risti!
