People grow up

Charlie says, somewhat grumpily, "So, is this going to be some kind of all night thing, or what?"

"Oh, no," I said. "Maybe two hours, max."

And I meant it. Actually, I was following the time-honored, custom programming estimate philosophy. I took the amount of time I thought I'd actually want to spend at the reunion get-together, and tripled it, then added another half hour.

Fashion Crisis!

So, I've finally narrowed down what I'm going to wear tonight to two (possibly three, but pretty much two) dresses. I'm talking to banshree, and I mention that I still haven't quite decided what I'm going to wear.

She says, "You should wear that glittery dress with the gold that we got at the garage sale last time."

Oh my God. I had completely forgotten about that. I had almost decided what to wear, and here was another wrench in the works. AIEE!
