Had just as much fun at the gathering for classmates (mixer? drink up?) at Koot's Friday night as I did at the reception for classmates and their spouses at the Millennium on Saturday, but friday night was much cheaper. (good going, Koot's)
I saw people who mostly live in Anchorage (many in Seattle)that I never see anymore and was mostly happy to see them. I talked to several people who I didn't expect to see at all(high school drama star, kindergarten classmate) and that was cool.
Only one of my high school friends was in attendance, which was a little strange. I'm not in contact with any of them anymore.
I developed a quick spiel summarizing my life and acomplishments to date, which didn't really say that much about me, but hey, it was a grip-and-grin.
After the reception/what-have-you on saturday, we went out to the Anchor Pub, which sounds homey, but is actually kind of clubbish. We stopped by a low key shindig in Fairiew, and after several cocktails, continued on to the Anchor, where I consumed several more cocktails, schmoozed some more, danced a lot for the first time in ages, and watched my high school bud hook up with a newly divorced classmate. Good times.
Sunday I didn't even pretend to get out of bed until 2 or 3.
