The government of Alberta saw fit to send me, in a big envelope, inserted into a stiff plastic-covered-cardboard sleeve, a fancy certificate... for an award I got last fall.

WTF GUYS. WAY TO GET MY HOPES UP.

I bet someone was updating their spreadsheets for the new round of awards and noticed that they never sent out certificates back when they were supposed to.

(I seriously have way too much experience with spreadsheets for mailings/certificates. Time for my brain to clear out that information and move on...)

There is a 50% chance you are right, and I trust your experience in these things. The other 50% chance is just that the Albertan government sucks, and is slow and incomprehensible.

Ugh.

At least it's better than this.

Your friend! At... the Thai/French restaurant... with the awesome necklace... told us that story about her grandfather, I think, who was rejected by Brown but showed up and pretended he was accepted and they were too embarrassed to tell him otherwise, so they just let him stay. Right? I didn't imagine that. Right??

I remember that this happened, but don't remember any of the details. Who was it?!
Gah that's frustrating. I remember the story. Have no idea whose it is.

She was the one you kissed on your birthday that year.

I am so sorry that I don't remember her name. It makes me seem like I forgot it out of spite/dislike/remnant negative feelings towards her, which is not at all the case.

Hmm. Interesting. I don't seem to remember that either. Awkwarder and awkwarder.

WHAT. How could you not?! It was such a BIG DEAL at the time.

You recently saw her again, because she was moving far away, for school I think

She was the one who was superduper intelligent but there was something missing in the chemistry.

Was it Jess? I think her name was Jess.

Maybe.

Well Jess definitely fits that description. And yes! Now I remember! But I was misremembering the birthday- I thought the year in question had seen a party in 'the suite', but I guess it was one in Milton.
It's all coming back.
In any event. The 'big deals' of that stretch of time all blur together a lot for me.
