Dang dang dang.

I just got a save-the-date e-mail from the people planning my 10-year high school reunion. It's on the day after FryDay 2008. I suppose I COULD do both... do FryDay, clean my house, then make the 8-hour trek to Newburgh to make my reunion the next day (not to mention Thanksgiving, which I usually host). I don't really think I want to though. I may have to choose between the two.

On the one hand, the people who will attend FryDay are my oldest and dearest friends and I love spending time with them and FryDay is by far the most fun day of the year.

On the other hand, I'd get to see people at my reunion that I haven't seen for years and years.

On the third hand, most of the people I'd really want to see at my reunion live within a 20-mile radius and I could totally see them any time I drive up there.

It might work for you to do both but i am unsure i would recommend it! After all that grease then driving..you will be like a vegetable...possibly causing mayham on the roads...but you have got to come to the REUNION!! It is at Rolling Hills..la-ti-da...it should be a good time and i need some of my own kind around! I can't put up with to much snoberry without you! Fryday can be anytime any year..this is a once in a lifetime...well maybe for our 20-25-30th..you get the picture!

I'm totally the wrong person to help on this one. I ditched my ten year to go visit a friend (also ditching the same reunion) in Houston and hang at Johnson Space Center. Of course, they ended up cancelling ours for lack of participation. That's what you get when you plan it for 4th of July weekend!

I didn't go to my 10 year reunion and I don't regret it. A close friend did go and she said that ppl who snubbed her in high school were coming up and acting like they were long lost friends. Yeah, whatever.

I say cherish the friends you have that you keep in touch with and celebrate those friendships with fryday :)

My 10 year reunion was great fun. It was wonderful seeing everyone who scattered to the wind (or was that me who scattered... lol) and catching up and seeing everyone's kids and spouses. I'd do it if I were you, because seriously, are you really going to go visit them all ever?

Have fryday a weekend later?

Yeah, people I didn't know well wanted to talk and I loved that. It was cool to find out about their lives and be adults and let all the petty high school crap go.

It was sad to see the folks who still held on to the high school grudges and wouldn't talk to so-and-so. Life is too short for that kind of junk.

And it was cool to talk to people I didn't know well and find out they really admired me in high school but because of the stupid high school cliques, they didn't get to express that then.

It was a wonderful time and I am so glad I went. Can't wait for our next one! Katrina killed our 20 year...

AFTER reading what Fry Day was, I vote for FRYDAY! To hell with the reunion, YOU HAVE STUFF TO FRY!

oh and hubby can tell me how to do the blooming onion, he has it down to perfection! We have a friend that is a chef that taught him how to do it. (that would be similar to onion rings)..

And I can't imagine a fried snicker or twinkie or oreo.. Yak!

I kinda figure that anyone worth keeping in contact with from high school....well, I have. I don't like the concept of reunions but perhaps because I don't do the fake stuff and don't appreciate being around it either. (and at my high school there will be plenty of "overachievers" laying out their portfolios, etc. fuhget that!

Go to the reunion. The oil will keep another day (I swear some fast food places are frying in oil from the Nixon administration.), and you can have a belated FryDay when you get back. Just keep the oil covered and stored in a cool place.

Simple... invite those folks you'd want to see at the reunion to fryday.

Bring Fryday to the reunion.

Fryday!
How are you doing? Any updates as to the hormone situation that you want to share? I am praying for you.
