Hometown Reunions

I’v been seeing a lot of people that I knew in high school. Even though we usually don’t exchange more than a nod, people who I knew in high school, no matter where they’re at in life, seem generally friendly. There always seems to be an unspoken communication of, yes, I’ll acknowledge that I know you still exist and even present a smile, but I don’t want to talk.

Last night I changed this blog’s privacy from hidden to public. I didn’t even know I had it on hidden, the setting that prevents the site from showing up in searches. My last post got a half dozen likes, the most I’ve gotten so far. I’m going out on a limb and saying that’s a direct result of making this blog public. I appreciate the likes, I’m sure a few of them were just people trying to get me to view their own blog. I hope my blog isn’t soon to be inundated by spam. 

I went to Goodwill today and picked up a CD and two tee-shirts. The CD is Front By Front by Front 242. I’ve never heard of Front 242 but once I learned from a Google search that they’re an eighties/nineties industrial band I didn’t hesitate to take it with me. I also picked up two Croft and Barrow tee-shirts. They’re really nice, soft, gray and white tee shirts with vertical textured lines. I have a red Croft and Barrow sweater with a similar texture and I love it so these shirts were picked up without thought. When I got home, after having a phone conversation with my mother, I ripped and listened to Front By Front and it was pretty good, lots of synths and weird eighties vocals. It definitely will add some color to my iTunes library.

The weather was truly wonderful today. I broke a sweat wearing a tee-shirt for the first time this year. I even had an urge to go jump in the bay. I had a stupid grin on my face walking around town. Bought myself a pair of cheap sunglasses.
