I got a message on Facebook from a guy I used to go to school with. His mom was my brownie troop leader, and we were in all the same classes from kindergarten until the end of 4th grade, when my mom passed away and I switched schools to the elementary school one town over. Then we were in the same high school for our entire tenures – we would have graduated in the same class had I not skipped a year. He was always a good kid, and nice to me, which was important at the time as I was on the lower rungs of the popularity ladder.

Anyway. He sent me a message in Facebook. Seems he and I have been living and working in the same area of Arizona for quite some time. It’s a small frikin’ world when someone from your high school in rural Maine ends up living and working in the same town, over three thousand miles away from home. And apparently, there are two more folks from our school who live near here, too. He told me their names – they ring a faint bell but time and the purposeful suppression of memories have dimmed the specifics.

I just thought that was cool, and that I would share it with you guys.


So! I bought the wrong battery grip for my camera. You may have seen me mention it on Twitter or Facebook. The one that I bought is for a Canon Digital Rebel XS, XSi or T1i. I have a Canon Digital Rebel XTi. Since I (stupidly) threw away the box it came in, I cannot return it. Do any of you, my fine readers, have a Digital Rebel XS, XSi or T1i? If so, my stupidity is your gain! I will mail you the grip, batteries, and battery chargers for FREE (a $60-ish dollar value!). It’s this one, specifically. First person to e-mail me with their snail-mail address gets it!


Finally, the best way to enjoy a shot of tequila:

Da da da da da da DA.  Tequila!

Da da da da da da DA. Tequila!

    It would be a bigger coinkeydink if your area of Arizona wasn’t so damned BIG. 😉 Or, alternatively, if two people from your neck of the woods ended up in your small area of Maine.

    I think the best way to enjoy a shot of tequila is after a bunch of shots of something else, personally. At least that’s how it seems to work for me. (Same for Jagermeister, although in the case of Jager that hasn’t always been the case…)

      I guess the shocker is that it’s so RARE for anyone from my neck of the woods to get out at all, that for this many of us to end up leaving AND ending up in the same place is just weird.

      I am a shot PRO and can knock back anything (except absenthe). The trick is to keep it in the freezer – you can’t taste it if it’s that cold. Or, well, you can only taste the good stuff. Try it with your whiskey sometime!

        When I lived there I found out my friend Ruthie lived in Scottsdale through our high school reunion webpage. Crazy.

        I think my friend Jeff has a T1i. I’ll ask. He’s currently in Hawaii but answering his FB messages because he’s a dork like that. I’d gladly pay you somethin’ for it if he can use it. 🙂
