Old Friends

Christyn and I spent the evening over Thai food with Heather Wintermantel. It's been an age since we spent any real time together, so we spent a lot of time swapping updates about friends. Several things became oddly clear. One: we have a lot of friends. Two: our circles of friends have only grown over the years, making it nigh impossible to keep up with all of them. This is why Heather has slipped off my radar a bit. Her work tends to keep her travelling, a she lives out in Danville, so we never just bump in to one another. But she and her husband Peter seem happy, and they're having a baby boy in 7-10 weeks. They're in that final "must get it all done before the baby arrives!!!" phase around the house. Anyway, it was nice to catch up, and to hear tales of where we've all ended up. We've come a long way from our raggedy beginnings. Highlights included:

- Tim is doing less car racing and more pottery, including a gallery show
- Suzi and Arch Technologies won Small Business of the Year from the Sacramento Chamber of Commerce
- Thomas cut his hair and Zeus chops
- Fred bought a townhouse, has a good gig at eBay, is surviving his Master's program at CMU, and still has a steady girlfriend for 2+ years.

Looking back over it, it's amazing how long we've all been friends, and how well we're all doing in our own ways.
