Well, as many of you know by now, I have been calling or emailing everyone on my list from the ten year reunion to check on addresses and make sure my contact information is current. If you have not heard from me yet, please contact me by February 8 to let me know if your mailing addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and names have changed. I will be heading to Mexico on the 10th to soak in some sun for several months. My email address will be working while I am gone, but I'm not sure yet how often I will be able to check it while in Mexico, so if you have changes within the next four months, you can still notify me, but it might be better to wait until mid-June. Happy New Year to everyone!

Jeaneen, I haven't heard from you for a little while... what's been going on? Last time we talked you were thinking about checking this site out. Are you here, yet? Well, Susi, I will soon have joined the ranks of those who have divorced abusive idiots. I've been trying to think of ways I can ease people into the news, but can't think of any, so I thought I would just come on out and let people know. I never know how people are going to react since I've spent so much time over the last few years trying to convince everyone (including myself) that I had the 'perfect marriage'. In a way it feels like bringing foreward my biggest failure, but at the same time, it wasn't my failures that caused this. Anyway, the kids and I are safe and happy. Much happier than before we left. I'm doing much better now, and am going to be going back to college hopefully this fall to work on my bachelors' degree. I'm really excited about that! I've somehow come out of this a much stronger person than I ever have been. It's amazing that such great things can come out of such terrible situations. So,UA, watch out before you pick on me... :)

Amy-Jo, I wouldn't pick on you, your much too nice for that. It's good to see that your doing well again. Good luck in college again, I know you will do well.... see I do have a sensitive side to me.

Hey Everyone: Wow, it's been a while since I checked out this site. Amy, you crack me up. It's been *soooo* long since I talked to you... My, my, my, where has the time gone? Why, it only seems like yesterday... ;o) Okay, so here's the poop with me: I've been working at a TPA for a year and a half. For those of you not familiar with the industry, in its simplest form, a TPA administers benefits for companies who self-insure. Exciting, hu? Anyway, I work at a great company with great people. Dream job? Hardly. No, this girl is meant to write. Ironically, it's exactly what I said I'd do when I graduated high school. Then I was swayed by well intending family and friends who thought I should do something practical. So I spent 5 *years* at Shoreline Community College (yes, full-time for all 5 years) trying to find that thing that would make me happy. Then I transferred to Boston University and finished my bachelor's with a degree in sociology. I thought this would prepare me well for life. Actually, I found it fascinating (really...yes, I'm still a geek, what can you do?). Then I tried various jobs and nothing is making me happy. The only thing that keeps me sane is writing. So I've been focusing on that. I pulled my back out New Year's Eve day getting ready for work. I was out all that week, then worked on and off for the next two weeks. Since I wasn't getting better, I went back to the doctor and now I'm not allowed to work this week or next. I see him again next week and will find out if I need to "go in for testing" as he so cryptically put it. On the up side: the vicadan is good and I have more time to write... :) I also get ultrasound and massage therapy out of the whole mess. Hopefully it's not anything that will require any nasty procedures. I'm hoping that rest will do the trick. So, anyone hear from Sarah Horton (Bowes)? She told me to write, I did and never heard back. Sarah, if you're out there, I hope everything is going well for you. :) And Amy, I can't see how what you're going through is a failure. You knock my socks off with your strength. YOU GO GIRL! Unknown Alumni: do I know you? or are you just playing mind games with me? ;o) if you are, careful... I like to play mind games too... hehehe Take care all!

dQuerida Familia, Waaaaaaaaasssssuuuupp!!!

Once again, there were some pretty good shows and i evaded arrest or incident:) The holidays were awesome, too, with all the family arriving safely. now things are sorta back to normal with Hollywood and the awards shows(Oscars/Emmys/Grammys), and of course, the parties(which were lame due to the heavy security and LINES! but still plenty of plastic to go around:) And even the surf is back up("Dude";) they're preachin' it's gonna be another "El Nino" year and it certainly looks as such("Duuuude") So take it easy down in Mex-LISA! During these tough economic times, the market value of a well dressed american just rose sharply all over the world, as if the waves weren't enough;) just a thought:) But we'll talk... Well, Bros, i hear a tree calling my name.Time to burn one for the ones that didn't make it;) Did anyone see Nightline's special on the Congo this week?! Let us give thanks every day we don't have to live in PERPETUAL terror...oh, it was awful. we don't even know how blessed we are compared w/90 percent of the world! Well, Mark and I do, but most people take the road more travelled... neways, take care, all. even the Martha Stewarts and Oprahs of the site.(hint: BE DARING, BE DIFFERENT) i think this is gonna be a much better year this year("year of the Horse")then again, could it be worse? with DUMBYA?

Okay, I'm sloooow. Who are you "Big Daddy"? Are you Joey Rego? And Unknown Alumni: your number is up. I've got you figured out. You didn't think I could do it, did you? Always underestimating me...One day you'll learn. :)

At Sat Jan 26 13:05:07 2002, Jeaneen ( wrote:

Okay, I'm incredibly bored because I've been out of commission for weeks. I need human contact. Sadly, all my friends are busy, so this is the closest I can get. Nothing really changes, does it? Okay, that's the drugs talking. Other stuf I've been up to since high school: in 1994 I spent the summer as a nanny in Alaska. Man, it was great. One of the coolest things I've ever done. If you are interested, remind me to tell you about the time I was stalked by a bear (no joke). Taking off to Alaska was the most independent thing I had done in my life up to that point. Those of you who knew me in high school or before, know what I'm talking about. I went through a lot with my mom being sick before she died. She was sick all my life. She was in and out of the hospital for as long as I can remember. She almost died when I was 19. When I was in Alaska, she went in to a nursing facility because she was having problems with her diabetes. She was only supposed to be in there for about 3 weeks. Her problems were more than what my family could handle as far as her care was concerned. Anyway, she never got better, only worse. She died in November 1995. I also lost my Nana and grandfather in the 2 years following her death. On top of that, I have a cousing who was killed and a friend who died of pneumonia while she was in remission from Hodgkin's. As I'm writing this, it all sounds so sad and pathetic to me. It's been excruciating, but not pathetic. It's changed me forever and now I know what I'm here to do with my life. Anyway, on that depressing note, I'll leave you with this thought for the day: Enjoy the vicadan. You'll say things on it you never would sober. :)

Jeaneen, you've got some issues....try morphine it lasts longer. However, not too much or you will stop breathing, and that wouldn't be good. What ever happened to the love on this page?? Make love not WAR!

At Sat Feb 2 17:37:04 2002, Jeaneen () wrote:

Uknown Alumni: perhaps you'd like to enlighten me on my "issues"? :) I wasn't trying to be mean to you. I was attempting to tease you. Just a little light hearted fun. I am sorry (no sarcasm) if I offended you. I didn't mean to. I thought you'd get a kick out of my ribbing. But I'm right, aren't I, about who you are? :) Take care all!

Jeaneen, No harm no foul. However, you have no idea as to who or what I may be. It was a nice try and I enjoyed your response. Unfortunately you are WRONG.I don't mind a little cat and mouse action. It seems as though that is the only entertainment we get around this site, aside from Mr. Rego's thoughts on human development and world afairs.I do, Jeaneen, like your style though. Keep trying

UA: Are you *sure* you're not the same person who gave me an official Sesame Street Rubber Duckie for my 19th birthday (no joke)?

At Sun Feb 3 20:42:06 2002, amyjo ( wrote:

OK, I gotta ask... Mr. UA, how do you even know who Jeaneen was thinking you are? I mean how are you so sure that you aren't that person? I, myself, am actually torn between two people that I think you might be. Is there any possibility that I may have shared a desk as a secretary/receptionist with your mother in '91?

At Tue Feb 5 15:33:31 2002, Tessa Spear () wrote:

I think I'm with everyone else, in wanting to know who the Unknown Alumni is. To tell you the truth I have NO idea. Not even a guess really. This person hasn't given any real clues so we could try to find out. Is this person Male or Female? Does anyone know? Did this person have any classes with me? Do they know who I am, or better yet, would I know who they were? Very interesting!!!!!!

At Tue Feb 5 15:52:10 2002, UA () wrote:

WOW, look who crawled out of the woodwork. I really didn't mean to get this much attention.Jeaneen, c'mon, a rubber ducky? That was a long time ago...even if I did I wouldn't remember. NOPE NOT ME. Amy-jo, nope try again. Tessa, you're getting a little too personal. And to answer all of your questions, yes you do know me. I just intended to do this as a joke at first. I will give you one hint....I DON'T live in Seattle

At Tue Feb 5 17:25:39 2002, Amy-Jo ( wrote:

UA, we already knew that. Any hints that we don't already know? How well would I know you? Tessa, we do know that he is, in fact, a he. We also know that he is, if not married, at least involved.

At Tue Feb 5 17:32:25 2002, Jeaneen () wrote:

Hmm UA, you seemed a little sensitive about the rubber ducky question... Any particular reason why? I'm not making it up. The person I'm thinking of actually gave me a rubber ducky for my 19th birthday, and it'd be just like him (you, maybe?) to pull this "Unknown Alumni" stunt. So, UA, did I know you in high school, or are we meeting for the first time?

At Wed Feb 6 12:24:03 2002, Jeaneen ( wrote:

Happy 30th birthday, Sarah Horton (Bowes)! Have a good one. :)

At Wed Feb 6 12:58:17 2002, Tessa ( wrote:

AmyJo, how do we know 'he' is involved? Do you have any idea who it is? I guess I'd have to go back and read all of the UA's messages. And UA, why do you say I'm getting a little personal? I didn't ask any personal questions, did I? I could, if you'd like! You say that I do know you. And that you don't live in Seattle. Do you live in Washington? I know alot of people, so how would I be able to know you from anyone else? Give me something substantial to go with. There were alot of people in our class you know. Give me a class we were in or if we hung out outside of school or something.

At Sat Feb 9 15:42:38 2002, UA () wrote:

You two are something else.C'mon if you have a quess,lets here it. IF you are correct in your assumption I will let you know. As far as a rubber duckie, I have no clue as to what you may be thinking. Did you remind me of that at the reunion? Or WAS I EVEN THERE AT THE REUNION???? Inquiring Minds want to know. I will give you another hint as to who or what I may be.....I am in the year book...class of 1990. does that help?

At Sat Feb 9 22:21:15 2002, Amy-Jo ( wrote:

UA, should it help? That hint could mean one of two things. If it means one, you still could be quite a few people. If it means the other, then it narrows it down a lot, but I probably don't know you well enough to guess. OR, I'm still way far off... Although I had an interesting idea of who you could be, but it seems unlikely. Would you have been involved in drama at all (in any way)?

At Sun Feb 10 13:14:59 2002, UA () wrote:

Well, it is quite interesting that you ask that.... yes, I took a drama class while attending IHS. Does that mean I didn't give you a rubber duck? Why don't you just either give up or take a guess, what harm could it do?

At Sun Feb 10 13:19:01 2002, UA () wrote:

Oops, Amy-Jo, that wasn't you who asked about the duck that was Jeaneen. Anyway,what difference does it make if I had taken a drama class???

At Sun Feb 10 13:22:03 2002, UA () wrote:

And yes,you ALL should know me...EVEN Mr. Rego

At Mon Feb 11 08:35:05 2002, Tessa () wrote:

Well, UA you're hint doesn't help at all. We were all there in 1990. And, you say that everybody knows you. Is it that we know you or just know who you are? There is a difference. We are all from differnt crowds, so the only way alot of us knew each other was if we had classes together. So, I'm really not sure how I knew you. And no, I have no guess. I don't have any idea who you might be. So I guess this will just turn into some kind of game. You'll have to give some kind of hint every time you're on so we can put the pieces together and figure you out. One of theses days we'll get it, then you'll have to think of another game!! :)~

At Mon Feb 11 09:12:01 2002, UA () wrote:

Tessa, there is no reason to get upset, or even hostile. Yes Tessa, you did know me quite well. at least you used to.

At Mon Feb 11 10:44:37 2002, Jeaneen ( wrote:

UA: This is my specific question: Did you and I ever have at least one conversation while we were in high school? (and I've moved beyond the rubber duck thing...)

At Mon Feb 11 10:59:01 2002, Tessa () wrote:

By no means am I upset or hostile...........just curious. How well do/did I know you? Give me a clue. Did we hang out outside of school? Or what class(es) did we have together? Or what friends did we have in commom? And, you never did tell me where you lived. You said you didn't live in Seattle. I asked if you even lived in Washington. So, do you or don't you? :)~

Jeaneen,Tessa,Amy-Jo,you all are just full of questions aren't you? Well, let me shed some light to this...Tessa, we talked at the reunion (the first night) and we had some classes together, as to which ones I'm not sure. No we didn't hang out outside of school to my knowledge.Jeaneen, I believe our class was 1st period senior year. Thats all I'm saying about that. Amy-Jo, What is your maiden name....I don't believe shared any classes,but I can't be too sure of that.Does that help???C'mon ladies, lets start sharing some guesses. And no I don't live in Washington now.

At Tue Feb 12 22:35:29 2002, Tessa () wrote:

Well, the first person I thought of when you said we talked at the reunion and reading that you're not living in Washington was Jason Rideout. We did have classes together and we did know each other. And I don't think we hung out outside of school. If I'm not right, I'll have to think of who else I talked to that doesn't live in Washington. What do you do for a living? And, what is your time zone compared to us in Washington? I'm thinking, I'm thinking!!! ;)~

UA: Hmmm.... very good clue, though it's driving me crazy that I can't name you right off the bat. Sr. Humanities, right? I have to look in the year book to see who I remember from that class. I have a couple of ideas...

Whahoo!! What do I win??? Anything exciting? :)~ That was a good guess. I totally had no idea until you said we talked the first night at the reunion and put that together with you not living in Washington. You were my only guess. You were at the 2nd night, but I didn't really get to talk to you too much. Well, at least I know I can contact you somehow. That's cool. So, how's it going? Are you still in Arizona? Fill me in on what you've been up to. You can either tell the entire class or email me. Good to hear from you!! Take care, Tessa

At Thu Feb 14 13:52:30 2002, Tessa () wrote:

Jason, did I ever send you copies of the pictures I have of you and me sitting in the hallway at school? I can't remember if it was freshman or sophmore hall. If you want, I'll see if I can get them copied and sent to you. If I can get them scanned, I'll need you email address. I think I have it somewhere, but not sure where.

So now that we've discovered the true identity of the Unknown Alumni, what are we going to do for fun now? (Oh, I can hear the responses: "Hows about getting a LIFE, Jeaneen?") :)

At Fri Feb 15 11:15:05 2002, Tessa () wrote:

Good question, Jeaneen!! I'm not sure. It doesn't seem too many people get on here anymore. I know I had problems for a long time. The site address I used to go to doesn't work anymore. So, I had to do some major searching to find a different address tot he site. Maybe that's why there's only a few of us on here lately. Has anyone heard from Kelly Ruhde lately? i tried sending her an email and it came back saying that email wasn't valid.

Jason, sorry it didn't occur to me to tell you who gave me the rubber duck. It was Dan Graham. So, are you telling us you don't live to visit this site? You don't wake up in the middle of the night just itching to check our posts? :)

I have A LOT of down time at work. Besides I have too many rat kids at home so I don't have time to check it out on my off days. And yes, this has been quite interesting lately, watching you and Amy-Jo, and Tessa and anybody else try to figure me out. I have a sick sense of humor.

Yes Jason, your sense of humor is pretty sick. Just how many rat kids do you have now? :) Didn't you say you were a fireman? So do you have to stay at the station for long periods of time? It seems that we are the only people on here lately, doesn't it? Like my previous posting said, I think there was some sort of problem with the site address and people can't get on now.

Rego, this is a far cry from smokin' bowls out in the E-farm. It's good to see that there is at least some testosterone on this web site.

Still wishing for one here but God bless, Papa Rat(1972, year of the Rat for all you new age hippies in the class:) so i'm sure the events of 9/11 probably touched your dept pretty profoundly. i know it changed my views about "the job"/security. if you thought i lived every day like it was my last BEFORE, hmmm....stand by, we'll definitely "catch up" on my next trek thru the Grand. my sister, Inez, lives in Texas/Plano and she's fallen ill(no lie), so i'll definitely be in the area sooner rather than later. well, i gotta go, kids but take care of yourselves. we're having a heat wave down here folks, in the middle of the rainy season, it's like 85', and the waves are MACKIN'(can you say "global warming" is not a priority!!

Well, I hope she feels better soon!Hey, what ever happened to keeping it on the down low. As far as my wife is concerned, I was a good little boy in HS.Then again I don't "seem" to remember much. Do you guys remember Spencer Otis? I believe he was class of '91.Well him and his wife Rachelle (McDade) were down here. Spencer is taking the fire department test down here. It seems as though they too are tired of all that rain up in Seattle. Go figure, I thought I had the perfect hiding spot. Tessa,Jeaneen what's shaking with you ladies lately?

Jason, it's good to hear things are going well with you and your family. What's shakin' with me? Nothing much, really. Just living day to day. I live with my boyfriend in the Tacoma/Puyallup area. I'm not sure if you got to meet him at the reunion or not. He's Unemployed right now, due to Lowes (formerly Eagle) closing the warehouses up here. He's just living off his unemployment until he has no choice but to get a job. I've been talking to Debbie 'Beach' for the last year or so. We didn't talk for about 7 years. I am also still talking to Kelly McNeil. We've talked since a year after graduation. I don't really run into people from school. So I'm pretty much out of that loop. I got my belly button pierced 2 weeks ago. It's still a little tender, but it's much better than that day. When I get tan (fake-n-bake, of course. We are in Seattle) and lose a few pounds I'll be able to show it off!! I'll have to scan some of the pictures i have of you from high school and send them down to you. Well, I'm at work so I better get back to doing something constructive around here. Talk to you later.

Hey Jason, Joe, Tessa, Amy, and whoever else is quietly lurking in the shadows of this page. My back is doing much better.

It's great to be able to think clearly again. :) I'm scared to even go back and look at what I posted when I was all looped up. I'm writing almost constantly (with the exception of the times I grace you all with my presence...oh yeah, and when I'm working too). Things really seem to be coming together. I'm beginning to focus on how to do it full time. It's that stinking gotta-pay-the-rent-and-bills thing that's standing in my way right now, but not forever, man. Take care, all!

Jason, I live a few miles from the Puyallup Fair Grounds.......up on the hill. I just gotta take a shuttle to the fair. Much nicer than having to find a freekin' parking spot down there. Or paying for it. This is the only body peircing I'm gonona be getting. It was painful enough. It's got a little infection now, so it's really soar again. And as far as the fake n bake....haven'r started yet. I'm debating. It would be nice to be tan and if you work, fake baking is almost the only way you can do it. But, is it worth the money??? That's my question now. Whadaya think? Where in Arizona do you live? I have family that lives in Tuscon and Scottsdale. Joey, how are things with you?? you always seem to have so much to say when you get on the site. It's great to read your entries. Where exactly do you live and what do you do for work. Tell us about yourself. Girlfriend/wife? Kids? Pets? And David, we don't really hear from you. What's been going on in your life? I'm still curious as to why everybody that used to be on here aren't anymore? Did they get bored? Jason, what kind of sex stuff do you want to read about? Why don't you share a little with us so we'll know what you want to hear from us!!! :)~ Clara.....who are you? I went to the website you had listed and it's some German site. ?????

Hey, speaking of drama, sex, and violence... I saw Mr. Semrau at Safeway a couple of weeks ago. He hasn't aged a bit. Here's a little-known fact... When I was in orchestra at Ingraham (yes, Ingraham, at one point, had an orchestra), Mr. Semrau offered the whole orchestra blanket 'B's if we would stop playing. I think that was shortly after we all petitioned to play 'Tequila' at an assembly. The word with me? I'm doing really well. A lot of drama, no sex, and no violence. :) Really, though, I'm happier now than I think I ever have been. The divorce could be final any day now if SOMEONE would just admit he has a violence problem. Long story, but that's basically what we're waiting for. The kids seem to be dealing very well with this whole situation. I've been working hard to make sure they have the help they've needed available to them and I think it's already paying off. They talk very openly about their feelings, and, even though it's so sad to hear it, it's very healing for them (and I think it is for me, too). In the long run, I have no doubt that I'm giving them a better future this route than they would have had if we would have stayed. It's actually really exciting, having a whole new, open future ahead now. What I do from here is completely MY decision. It's a great feeling. I don't know if you remember me much from high school, but decision-making was never one of my strong points. Now I'm in a position that I HAVE to make all of the decisions, not only for myself, but for six children, too. It feels really great... I think mostly because I can already see the results and they're good. ANYWAY... It's late, I'm tired, and I'm rambling.

Jeaneen, I think that since he is the same age as us, Jason is just vocalizing his own insecurities. Can we help it if we are simply aging more gracefully than some? The best thing we can do for him is to encourage his self-esteem and try not to notice the obvious effects aging must be having on him. So, Jason, was that an offer for a bachelorette party? It's a dangerous offer to make to a small group of single women. And by the way, I'm not 'back out on the market' quite yet, and even if I was, I wouldn't be out there 'trolling'. :) The last thing I need right now is another guy to have to deal with.

You asked the question of us women, but you haven't given us much info about the same thing. Obviously there's sex, as your wife had a baby not too long ago. Anything else?? :)~ Hey, did any of you watch that show '9/11' on Monday? That was amazing. It was a different point of view, that's for sure. Jason, I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we're glad you didn't move to New York. David, what's been going on with you? Have you just been queitly watching all of us chat and finally decided to join us, or what? You seemed to pop up out of nowhere. Joey, how's your sister doing? Good I hope. You'll have to fill me in on what exactly it is that you do. I've read so many of your entries, but they're all so phylisophical, that I odn't really know what you're up to. Amy, I hope things are going well with you. I know it must be difficult. But, it's better off for you and your brood. I still can't believe that you have 6 kids. I bet you'll win the contest at the 15 year reunion for the most kids, just like you won it hands down at the 10 year. : )~ Anyways peeps, I gotta go. I'm using up my work time.

Nothing too exciting is going on with me, Jason. Same ol' shit, different day. I'm a little busier, as the company fired the girl that does the same job I do in our Seattle office. I'm having to go back and forth between that office and my office, to cover everything. The traffic is horrible. I deserve a raise, but until the nes salesperson in our office starts bringing in some money, there's no revenue to spare for a raise. At least that's what I'm told. : )~ My 2 years is in May, so I'm really crossing my fingers for a raise. We'll see. I might be going to Cali & Vegas at the beginning of June. I'm excited about that, as I've never been to Vegas. We'll be on a tight budget, since David's still unemployed (getting a check though, but not much). We'll make the best of it though. We're good at that. My belly button's doing good. It's not too sore anymore. I still have to clean it a couple times so it doesn't get infected, but it's doing good. It should be fully healed by summer. I never did the fake-n-bake thing. Maybe later. I spent all my tax money on other stuff instead! I wish all the other people we used to get on this site, would come back. There's be more people to get caught up on. Since the site wasn't working for a while, they didn't figure out how to get back on. Oh well, their loss I suppose.

OHMYGOD, HIIIIIY YOU GUUUUUYS!! I totally lost this address for months, obviously, but watch out! I'm back! Geez, y'all have kept this shit going for a long long time now, and it's gotten pretty intense at times! I am sorry to all of the hard times befallen on some of you, and happy for all the good newsers. Sorry that seems so generic, but for crying out loud! There's tooooo much that's happened in the past year for me to list everything...Okay, so my deal: getting divorced, as well. Amy, we could start a First Wives Club? The fortunate thing: we are still friends and don't own anything together. Makes things a lot easier...Just started working back at a company I was laid off from last July...Um, moved...That's about it. I do have a kickass boyfriend right now, and am extrememly happy about it! Where are all of the other regulars on this thing? I must confess (rat out) little Miss Valarie Buford gave me this address and said she checks out the site often. Notice how she NEVER writes anything....What's up with that? Joey Rego, Joey Rego, Joey Rego...I love you! Did I tell you I got together with Jenny and Robyn? You really need to send me an email and we'll catch up on our gradeschool shit... Jason: have a hilarious group photo from the reunion (I really need to send Branom the photos for posting - soon!) where you are laying across my lap...How did you not squish me, you wonder? You did. It shows on my face at one point, when you are trying not to fall off! Be back soon.

Hey there everyone! I am so glad to finally be back on. I have finally been able to read all entries and catch up. I have been away for so long because the site was not working. I asked Lisa about it and she siad to go to and enter Ingraham class on 1990 and it came up so i had to re save it. I think that may have happened to a few of the other regulars! :) All is well with me (not that anyone asked!) :) I am working hard.. Still at Starbucks, working as an event Specialist.... and Yes Joey... Starbucks stock did split 2 for 1 but it was last April and it went as low as 14$ around 9/11 so it's great that it is back up to almost 24. Whoo-hoo! You gots to watch your money a little better! I really do enjoy working here, i have so much fun! Lisa is in Mexico, Cabo until sometime in June i think. She is welcoming visitors if anyone plans to head down. She is having a great time so far! Amy... i think that is very brave of you to leave your violent husband. Must have been hard but it is the best thing you could have done for your kids and yourself! You Go Girl! Too many women put up with being unhappy because they are more afraid to be alone. You are setting a great example to your kids! I am so glad you are all keeping in touch with this site! Tessa.. go for the fake and bake! It's not that expensive and you only live once! It's been a LONG winter and i am thinking about going... i love not feeling so pasty white and i am WHITE! Jason... do you remember Heather Grigg... she lives in Phoenix now with her husband... i hear it is HOT there in the summer! Joey... hope your sister is doing well. Nice to read about all of you!! I will check in soon!

today i was actually scared to visit this site. was it just a month ago my life was "normal". my grandmother's in new york visiting my cousin. she just had her first baby boy, Johnny jr. her husband worked in tower #2. my fingers are shaking, the way they do when i recall a horror i survived, but today im thinking of what john told me he saw as he stepped off the train that morning from brooklyn to manhattan. im thinking, was it just ten years ago we were still young, and some of us went off to fight for what this country believes in and stands for and against another tyrant, by another name? now, ten years later, while thinking i am 'over here' and they are 'over there', i've been effected, indeed traumatized, yet again. only this time i was not 'away'. youthful exhuberance turned to shame in the blink of an eye, a sunny morning of waking up turned dark and full of dread. "will my friends that are still 'in' have to go and fight?" was the first thing on my mind, followed closely by " i wonder where's johnny and marisol at?". "will l.a. be next?" you hear that down here now. as if it wasn't already bad enough. the emmys, grammys, concerts, amusement parks, cancelled. and when i go to the airport monday i'll go through at least two checkpoints and then i will get at least two seperate patdowns and i will still get at least a couple of curious glances before i get Business license to pick up my family, but that's okay. lax reminds me of visiting Tel Aviv now. but that's okay. it's important, just like it was then, now more than ever for all of us to do what we can to support each other! it does matter. it matters to our boys on the ground in manhattan! it matters to our boys on the ground in afghanistan! IT MATTERS. even if all you do is wave a flag, somewhere there's a boy or girl who's daddy is 'over there', seeing and knowing that that - freedom - is worth fighting for and worth protecting and they and us are a part of that, whether we want to be or not sometimes. now i work in the busiest port in the country( and in the last two weeks the cargo volume has doubled! instead of delivering bombs and bullets, now i just load them onto things, but i KNOW where they are destined for. life's ironic sometime. but if i had to go and fight, like i know some people do, it means the world to know your friends around the world are thinking about you. so i write messages on them in chalk. in my current job, we lose(that means dead) at least a couple of persons EVERY MONTH(check out the crazy pics on the website). and that's just delivering the goods, not handling them. but we do it because we know -NOT THINK, KNOW- that job is important. just like the situation the whole country is in right now. someone HAS to do it. if not us, who? goodnite, all. take pride in the fact that we have the best operators in the world who'll get the job done using the fewest moves(as in ordnance) needed! and as always, GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! (what we need next is a war on pollution; over 50 beach closures this summer!!!!and that was just local! i'm outta here. as always, drinks are on me(airfare and shows are xtra cheap now, call in advance for tix, and no 'loud colors':)

All is okay now and you should have no problem getting messages to me. That said, JOEY, where are you? We need to talk about some stuff! How's Inez, though? Send my long lost love to her and your mom and your bro. Does anyone else have pics from the reunion they need to get to Branom for posting? I will if you will! Actually, I just need to find them and I will send them over soon. Maybe not really soon, as I am a master procrastinator, but within a month or so. I have some reeeeal goodies! Latest alum sightings: Jamaica Kompier and Monique...Johnson? I think that's her last name. Two separate sightings, within two days of eachother. Strange, considering I haven't seen Monique since we graduated AND they're still friends; Jamaica was just telling me how they still hang out - and then I see her two days later...Anyway, you can find Jamaica at 2nd Hand Hube's, an antique mall/vintage store on Greenwood and 74th, Saturday and Sunday.

Do you really want me to get Freudian on you? Do you really want me to point out how obvious it is that you hate women? All you're trying to do is project your insecurities on to me! ;) Just kidding. I don't believe in any of that crap. No, Jason. I wish I hated men. Life would be so much easier. I do *not* mean that as a bash against men. I'm actually Jeaneen-bashing. I'm clueless when it comes to men and that's why I'm becoming the crazy cat lady living downstairs... No seriously, Jason, the gloves are off. I'm a little rusty so I need to warm up. Cut me some slack during all of my lame insults, okay? BTW: "SPARKY" is in reference to you Jason. So sad that I have to spell it out for you. You're a fireman. It was my way of belittling you by giving you a little boy's nick name. Get it? :) I need to take more time to catch up on all the rest of the mssages.

Hey, Norman! You can pretty much see what's been going on with us, but what about you? Where has the last twelve years brought you? Kelly, sorry to hear about your divorce. I'm glad to hear that you're doing well now, but I can appreciate how hard it is to go through! Unfortunately, David and I did own things together (we're in the process of selling the house now), and it's really hard to stay friends with an abuser... not because I hold any bitterness, but because the abuse continues. Hopefully, in time, things will get better so that the kids can have somewhat of a 'normal' divorced family relationship instead of the infrequent supervised visits with Daddy. It's all up to him to change. ANYWAY, didn't mean to go off on that... By the way, the 'death notice' thing was a link to a web site. If you clicked on it, it would take you to some 'PI' site where you could, for a small fee, look up all kinds of information about other people. Wierd.

You know, I swear I saw Lisa in Lynnwood just about a week ago. I think she's already back. And, why couldn't we have the reunion a little earlier in the year than September, like August even? Then the weather would be more dependable and we could maybe do something outside. It wouldn't be as nice, obviously, as the ten year, but it also wouldn't diminish our funds... Just a thought.

If we had it in the summer, like most schools do, we could have great weather. I agree with you Amy, August would be nice. My moms school used to have the 2nd night of their reunion at a park. People could bring their kids and significant others. They have a catered BBQ. It was nice. The weather was beautiful and people felt more comfortable since they didn't have to be dressed up. Norman, I don't know how we'd get Tim to the next one. He didn't graduate, so he wouldn't be on the guest list. And, if we have it like the 10 year one, the 1st night is Alumni only, then them & their significant other the 2nd night. I don't know about you, but my man would be upset if I took Tim as a date rather than him!! : ) And to answer your question, no I haven't found anyone else on my list. It is getting smaller though, which is nice. Well Amy, if Lisa is back, then she'll probably read this and get some ideas for the next one. Take care you guys.

'specially my house:) AT THAT POINT, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO 'FIND' A COMMON SET OF WORDS AND CONTINUE 'WORKING', QUE NO?? My attorney friend was not aware of those facts. well, i'm sure none of us here is soooo narrow minded. or shall i say, IGNINT?:)...anyway, they were acquitted(of course. cops DON'T do time, but i would have to really scour the his story boo ks to find one for killing a 'neeger'(see Jamestown, 1607) ahight, ahight, 'nuff said:)..was i 'Pontifficating' again?? And on a lighter note, some of you might've seen Rancho Santa Fe, CA on the list of "richest/best" cities in the U.S. well, North County San Diego and Orange County are nice but don't believe it! unless you like geriatric living w/neighbors like Bill Gates or Kobe Bryant or the Sultan of Brunei, who are 'never home' or my favorite, when Pamela Lee and her crew set up shop on YOUR lawn and tell YOU to be quiet on THEIR set!! that's when the Pit Bulls get let out to 'play':)...still, i did like the area, especially if you're into fitness, San Diego is the triathlon capital...might be nice in 20:)..or when i got 2MILLION extra just layin' around:)....i'd have to sell sooo much pot, cocaine, crystal and heroin though..maybe if i make the girls help me??:)...thank God the Bush's are in office:)..with luck in '04, i can make it in '10:):)..and don't forget about the 'Art Police'. OHH YESS, if your house gets to lookin' just TOO ugly, they will come shut you down, down heeyuh! yess'a, don't you paint that mansion pink heeyuh!! well, we finally found Chandra!

Kelly, take care of that pinched nerve! Sounds awful. I'm thinking of you and sending your relaxing thoughts. :) I'm back at work after taking 3 months off to take care of some personal business. I'm in the same job with the same company. It's nice to be back. I didn't think I'd say that, but it is. I work for a great company, I just hate being a secretary.

Okay, alright already, I'm here!! I am indeed still in Mexico. I left Seattle on February 10, two days after my 30th birthday, and spent a couple of months in Cabo San Lucas. I mostly vacationed on a lean budget and set up house with my friend Tina in a small apartment outside of town. The last month I taught English for five hours a day at an English school downtown. Then at the end of April we headed home with plans to wrap up things at home and hopefully work and then pack up some stuff for the drive back down to Cabo San Lucas. No luck with work but I got a whole lot of things done at home. We left Memorial Day weekend and four days later we were back at home away from home. Now as you know from Kelly's update, I am indeed booking people into timeshares, but my position at Villa del Palmar Resort and Spa is deceptively called "concierge". Actually, I am concierge, but I do book timeshares as well and that is where I make my money. I will be in Mexico for some time. Glad to know that I was missed. I have been checking email from an Internet cafe so don't spend much time online except to send emails, but Tina happens to be housesitting right now for a lady that has a computer and is online. It is hot here right now, and you ladies are right about us Seattleites not being able to stand this. It is around 100 degrees here and the humidity is climbing. I can't imagine spending another summer here, but we'll see about that. And, I have no air conditioning, but that is going to change soon. The fourth storm of the year is off the coast...we're at D. The waves are at eight feet and the water is warming, a sure sign of stormy weather. Hurricane season is going to be interesting. Hopefully it won't be a repeat of last September when this town was whalloped by Juliet. As if September 11 wasn't enough to hurt tourism in this town. Joseph, your emails make me dizzy. And the one about the women makes me want to put you over my knee and spank you with a wooden spoon. But I still love you. Get your ass down here to see me. You may want to wait until November, though, or you might melt and that is no way to spend vacation. I never realized that one's upper lip has the ability to sweat so much. As for the reunion, it is still only 2002, so it is a little early for planning. Plus, who knows if Bill's Bodacious BBQ will still be in business by then? But thank you very much for the input and the effort and when it comes time I'm sure the committee will form itself as it did last time and the plans will take form. The only reason the reunion was in October in 2000 was because that was a huge year and people had plans booked all over the place for years, so we took what we could get. I know that the reunion will definitely be in the Seattle area this time and that it will be something casual and designed for everyone to keep in touch and have fun and as a way to fund the event as well as the account for the future. The account is being well taken care of, it has some money in it, and I am trying my best to keep tabs on everyone, even from Mexico, so if you find someone new, please let me know. Also, even though Tim Brown did not graduate, he is welcome to attend the reunion if he wants. We aren't THAT discriminatory. But the Russians and Germans that are sending wierd disturbing messages and Clare and the other chick that I have a feeling was hinting at cyber sex, well, they are definitely EXCLUDED! Sorry Boys! Well, I will try to keep up on the message board. You folks sure have been chatting away. Thank God you figured out who the UA was, that was starting to get on my last nerve. Until next time, think of me while you're in your air conditioned buildings sipping Starbucks frappucinos (which are unavailable here, except for in the bottle, thank you very much, and that's just not the same). Peace out.

No Frappachinos down there! Oh, the horror. I'll go have one today, thinking of you & Rideout, and hoping both of you are having a good time. Myself: I LOVE the heat. I'm pretty hot myself, but I already love myself. ;-) It's starting to pick-up here in Seattle: Sea Fair, parades, job interviews, college students taking tours, and people in SUVs almost running people down on a more frequent basis. I heard the movie Austin Powers: Goldmember is going to be the last movie of that series. Lisa, have a Margarita for all of use in Seattle. Cheers. :-)

Hey, speaking of Rideout........has anyone heard from him yet? Lisa, sounds like you're having fun downt here in Mexico. What got you to want to go down there and then sorta move down there? Sounds like an adventure. Hopefully you get spared any storms. We're having some great weather up here. Mid 80's, sunny and clear skies. I'm lovin' it!! Except that I got burned the other day, so the sun beating on it makes it worse. Oh well, got to enjoy the sun while we have it. Well, hopfully everything is good with everyone. I know we have the normal 5 or 6 people here on the board. I wish we could get more people here chatting. Oh well, maybe one of these days........ See ya'll later!

Shipments of military cargo "over there" are up and rising, and the "terror war"(or rather like the "drug" war/trade, it's more of a trade agreement, than a conventional blood-for-land "war", like in Palestine, where BOTH sides are armed AND "advised" using our weapons and our advisors(well armed and trained "advisors":)...but all that aside, TRY AND HAVE A GOOD SUMMER(SAVE YOUR CA$$$H!!!), HUG YOUR KIDS, TELL 'EM YOU LOVE 'EM, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL, SMART, AND SPECIAL, AND YOU WILL "ALWAYS" LOVE THEM!!

Happy, happy birthday, Rudhe!!! I will have a margarita for you and you have shot of tequila for me since I can't stomach the stuff. Tessa, I have been coming down to Mexico since the graduation trip to Mazatlan in 1990. Love the place. Have been here (Not only Cabo, but Tijuana, Mazatlan, Cancun, Cozumel, Zihuatanejo) over ten times by now. I had been talking about coming down to teach English for the last several years and finally did it. I wanted to escape the corporate world and slow the pace of life. Mission accomplished. I work an average of six hours per day at a five star resort and am making good money. It leaves lots of time to simply enjoy life and the beauty that surrounds me here. The people are pleasant, hard-working people. I am still fairly close to the states. There's plenty of Americans and Canadians here to lessen the culture shock. Most importantly, red tape, for the most part, has been eliminated from my life. The challenge is trying to juggle my life in the states with this one since I am attempting to keep my condominium in Seattle to myself. I am off to a good start though. That pretty much sums it up. That's the short version, at least! It is the beginning of hurricane season, Joseph. I may come home for a bit in October, only because the resort may be closing concierge for a couple of weeks due to APEC, but I plan on riding out the storms. I'll let you know how it goes. It rained some big drops today, but only for five minutes. The evening is a cool one today, a welcome reprieve from the balmy heat of late. I have been sleeping under a light blanket every night with my windows open. I love it. Well, you guys enjoy the summer. I know it's beautiful, as always this time of year. And for God's sake, wear SPF 48!!!!! TESSA!

Wow, I didn't realize I was writing from Mexico!! : ) Kelly, sorry I missed your birthday. Happy belated Birthday, anyhow. I had a hard timne turning 30 back in October (meaning I'll be 31 in 2 months, URGH!), because I had some goals in my mind of where I was going to be in life at that age. And, to my dismay, I had accomplished NONE of them. Well, the married part I did, but that was over. I'm over it now, I guess. Life goes on, so you gotta get used to it. I just say I'm 21 with 9 years experience!! Lisa, I'm glad you're having fun. I've been thinking of going to Cali, but I'm not sure I'm ready to make the leap yet. I'm very close to my friends and family up here, so that would be hard. I always admire people that have the courage to move away from what they know into something totally new like that. Way to go!!

And here I was thinking I was the only one who was panic-stricken to turn 30. It was a minor crisis for me. It's such a milestone. It's not that it's old, it's just so *adult*. I just got used to being in my 20s! I had loads of expectations about who I'd be and what I'd be doing by the time I was 30. None of it's happened, but on the other hand, a whole lot of stuff I didn't expect has happened (some bad, some good) and I know I'm better off for it. In general, I just thought I'd have my shit togehter. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! I'm sure we all needed that good laugh. Anyway, now that the big 3-0 is out of the way, I feel more settled and I'm not getting all worked up about what it's supposed to mean. Jason, if you're out there man, let us know how you're doing.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've been out of town a bunch lately. I was actually in Seattle last weekend and saw the new Ingy stadium -- pretty impressive. But I was home for crummy reasons. My cousin was the NOAA worker who drowned up in Alaska (click here for the story if you want to know more about it). The funeral was nice -- lots of people showed up. He would have hated it though. He always hated crowds and being the center of attention. He was just 30 and 6 months to the day. Oh, well. Hope everyone else is having a better year than me!

Hi. To everyone I wish I could say that I had been on vacation. But the fact is mine doesn’t start for another week. Things have just been really busy. Sense May I have changed positions at work, had my car stolen (they found most of it), gotten married, and am now in the process of buying a home. To add to the fun during that same period my wife’s car was stolen (They found a couple of pieces) and her family grew by 2 nephews, 1 niece, and a brother in law. So I hope you will all forgive me for not writing on this site more often. I have been trying to keep up on reading it. Like the rest of you I am not sure I like the sound of being “30”. But it has been a fun adventure so far and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Jeaneen: Hope you had fun camping and say hi to your sister for me. Tessa: Age is only a state of mind. Think young and have fun. Mark: Sorry to hear about the bad year. Take care.

We're expecting our first child, a girl, in January 2003. I can't wait. It's such an exciting time. I know that Amy can definately confirm that. I went to dinner with Mary McCollum (Murray) at the end of last year. It had been since 1990 that we had seen each other. She is doing well. Had lived in San Diego for a while and could not make it to the reunion, due to the fact that she was pregnant with her son. She is back in the Seattle area, Lynnwood, and plans on coming to the next reunion. I haven't talked to her in awhile though. Well that's all of the updates I have. Take care!!!

I've taking to dissing myself because you're not around to do it! And Charles, this is the perfect place to talk about pizza because our very own Kost Varlamos owns Varlamos Pizzeria new U Village.

I know Mark will fix the problem. APEC is happening in Cabo right now. I left at just the right time. Timeshare is frozen for the week and the place is crawling with FBI and the like. We have war ships in the Sea of Cortes right in front of the resort and besides the 250 rooms full of mostly Japanese media and the governor of Baja California, hotel occupancy is down to about 13%.
