High School Musical 1988- The Reunion


Had a wonderful time, and even now the song : "Our House", by Madness, rings through my ears..."our house in the middle of our street..." Don't make me break into "safety dance".

I was happily surprised at the turn out (100 plus) and even more amazed at how great everyone looked!!! Twenty years later and most people had not gained weight or lost their hair! (well, most people...) I planned the whole thing, and by plan, I mean I hired a company to do it all because no one else would and I didn't want to shell out any money! It was such a cheesy affair but still fun!

Mom dropped me at BFF's house at 10am and then we picked up two other BFf's. We then went into town so I could experience my favorite high school lunch from the deli: Chicken cutlet sandwich! It's a chicken cutlet on a roll with melted Muenster cheese and tomato, topped with Russian dressing! HEAVEN!
Then it was off to BFF's mom's house to look at photo albums and die laughing. Then to the Ritz where we primped, ate, drank and laughed more. Then drinks in the lobby with other high school ladies and on to the reunion!

Here's the gossip- as promised...

-Hot football player may now be working for the CIA? He was vague about his job on the hill" but word on the street is he's a spy!

-Old high school boyfriend told me I still smelled fantastic. Hello? Ego boost? Thank God. Chalk one up for pregnant girl.

-Good guy friend had gone to jail for insider trading and now seems pretty happy. Glad to see him doing well.

I was the only pregnant one there (that I saw), but some had just had babies. I tell you I was exhausted when I returned Sunday! Could barely move!
Big Thanks to hubby who held down the fort like a champ and managed to get sooooo much of the new improvements to the kitchen done!!! Love you hubby!!!!

oooh looks fun! It is so interesting to see how peoples lives change and evolve- with some people from highschool you think-- what? How do you have a job- you are such a goofball- but your forget that you knew them when you were kids! They grew up too! Crazy..it sometimes is strange to think that other people are out living their lives while we are living ours- even if we loose touch with them. Glad you had a good time.

Did you grow up in Greenwich?? I noticed the familier Lilly Store and of course L'Escale. So lovely!

I used to design the store windows in a little boutique in Greenwich - and have friends that live on the Sound in Greenwich - just wanted to let you know that I watched Juno this wknd and really liked it - in fact I bought the soundtrack at Walmart on Sat.

As I am sitting here humming Safety Dance...too funny. Great picture of all of you! At my 20 year the women looked awesome and the majority of the men not so much.Sounds like you had a wonderful time and a lot of good gossip. Thanks for sharing and welcome back.
