Saturday evening was a reunion in so many ways. And old friend, Steve, and his new boyfriend came in town, so we had an opportunity to catch up on the past several years. I haven't seen him since... oh it must be over six years. Needless to say, there was a lot of catching up to do.
Overall, it was a fun night of revisiting the past and old haunts. Along our sojourn through Akron, I saw many old faces and caught up with several people. Some haven't changed, others have gone through serious overhauls. For old time sake, we stopped at a nite club for a short time. As we were getting ready to leave, Steve stopped to chat with the owner. Perfect timing; I ran into another friend from the more recent past (Dan) and had a chance to catch up briefly, yell at him for reading emails but never replying, and exchange a few hugs.
I am a bit of a nightowl, but nothing really prepared me for being out that late. It was after 4:00 AM when I made it home and crawled into bed. I was supposed to go out last night late and meet up with a few other ghosts of my past, but my stomach just wasn't in the mood. I was a walking billboard for Pepto Bismol. I still feel quazi-sick, but I'm not going to let that cancel any plans for a second day in a row. As long as my nose stops running and my stomach isn't tied in knots, I should fair well.
Tonight's jaunt will be to Cleveland. I'm assuming dinner, drinks, and a show, but I'll find out for sure what's happening a little later this afternoon. Meanwhile, I have a bit of catching up to do with a few odds and ends. And then I could use a little down time before getting wrapped up in a few other things later in the week. March has been flying by... some of it, I'll be gllad to be done with while the other, more enjoyable things will be over before I know it.
