Having returned from my 20th High School Reunion, in which I had a GREAT time, I can truly say that my class, the class of 1987 was a cream-of-the-crop generation.

I've got the CFO of a major casino network, a television news anchor, and an assistant dean at the University of Washington coming from my school -- a small school in Fresno, California. 90% of the people I talked to were in IT. The rest were career military, lawyers, or teachers.

about 12% of our class showed up -- a much larger group than I expected.

It was cool, visiting old haunts, comiserating about the ones that weren't there anymore, and realizing just how great a friendship you have when after 10-12 years you can just pick up a conversation that dropped off over a decade ago and keep talking like it was yesterday.

Everyone I went to school with was an utter shit and I hope they suck my fat one on the day I pick up my Booker Prize.

If you're reading this, Alison - bite me.

And Martin. I'll get you back for braining me with that effing kooshball someday.

In my case it's not so much who did I go to school with, rather who did they all go to school with. You know.. huh?

Actually, I have maintained friendhips with about two guys I started school with in day 1, 45 years ago (yeeesh!), and in some ways those people you go right through school with are the closest friends you'll ever have.

A horde of people I knew I was related to, people I discovered I was related to, and people I was afraid I might be related to. 85% of whom still think cow-tipping is a cool passtime 10 years later.


I didn't date in HS unless the guy had just moved in from out of state. :D

Good God who remembers them? I can name 3 people, only one of which I remember first and last names of, and I "think" I know where she lives only because she's the one and only human from those days I ever stayed in touch with.

I get "Oh, I went to High School with you!" all the time - and I have to pretend to know who these people are.

OMG I hated high school and most of the people who were there with me. The only person I know who became anyone famous is Darrell Hammond from Saturday Night Live. He was a couple of years before me, but he is funny so I will count him. We walked the halls at the same time so it works for me.

I went to high school with:

The guy who was our optometrist in the Army. I knew he looked oddly familiar as he fitted me with lenses for my gas mask. Very nice guy, too.

A very well-known local attorney who was, back then, the shop class cut up.

A bunch of Viet Nam vets - and some who didn't come back.

A girl who went on to become an actress on stage.

High School--Too many judges and attorneys. I hated American Government. They were all on the fast track to getting their J.D. I wasn't. That class was a nightmare for me.

College--no one special. And as far as I know, only one attorney.

Anywho, nobody suuuuuuuuuuuper famous went to my sh!t hole school however a class or two above me was one of the better known jockies currently racing out here. Kinda cool, I guess. Oh and a kid named Michael Jackson not to be confused with the Michael Jackson.

In high school... A few small actor's kids, Bob Villa's kids, trust fund babies and heirs to Johnson&Johnson fortunes, etc.

College we hit the big time... Kristen Bell from Veronica Mars, Robin William's son, Dustin Hoffman's son, etc... Hell it was NYU - everyone was famous. (I missed out on the Olsen twins, sadly, though a friend of mine didn't.) But NYU is a "Spike Lee's In The Elevator... Holy Crap So Is Oliver Stone" and "Our Campus Student Run Democratic Club Thingy Got Bill Clinton To Talk At Their Rally" sort of school.

At Boston University... Um... Most "notably" O.J. Simpson's daughter. Pot head, for the record.

I didn't go to my 10 year (never mind that I wasn't invited). I won't go to my 20th next year either. Even if they do invite me. I don't really care about anyone from high school.
I sound like an old lady saying I graduated 20 years ago, but I still feel like I'm 17. Judging by my getting proofed for a lottery ticket the other day, I must look it, too.

... and this guy (http://www.elections.directoryyorkregion.com/candidate.php?ID=38). He was our fourth roomie in college. He slept on the couch in the living room. I don't think he remembers me.
My hubby worked at St. Andrews College boys school. This guy (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000662/) was an alumnus and he got married there.

Oh, if we're doing college and football players, I've got everyone--and I mean everyone--beat.

I was at UM in its heyday: Kosar, Testeverde, Blades, Brown, Irvin, and on and on.

Best football player stories: 3)beating Testeverde and another player at pool with my roomate, after kicking out of a frat party three times for trying to get in without paying, 4) playing a pick up game of b-ball withe Bernie Kosar my third day on campus 5) Seeing Jimmy Johnson with his hair messed up. I can't post 1) and 2). Sorry.

Ahhhhh...good times.

Guess this is an American thingy. In Sweden we have nine grades before hitting the equivalent to High school. I made it through seven and a half grades before I left; telling the principal that school sucked. BIG TIME!! Brought on a lot of crap for my poor Mother, that did, but she survived....

Anyway, I am happy to say that I can not remember any of my former so called class-mates. They stunk then, and I am sure they haven't changed since...:wag:

My best buddy is a consultant surgeon, in urology, and has published a gazallion of papers already. In Oz, being a female surgeon is a huge deal. She got a lot of flak, because she never kowtowed to the hospital gods. In the first few years of secondary school, she was the only Asian (East Timourise Chinese) in an all-white school. Oh, yeah, and she got a lot of flak there, 'cos she couldn't speak English but was smarter than most of the teachers. She got her A's by studying the dictionary all night, so one year later, she was more articulate in the English lingo than the rest of us.

I wouldn't be surprised if she won the Nobel Prize one day.

Funny thing is, all the Cheech & Chong worshippers are now professors, CEO's, Habitat for Humanity carpenters....basically having the last laugh.

Me? I dated guys at least 10 years my senior.

A few years ahead of me was this guy, (http://www.algreenmusic.com/) but I didn't know him personally.

Well, I'm only about 7 years out of school...

One of my old friends works as a writer for Saturday Night Live, but that's about it.

I have friends that grew up with famous people! Do they count?! My old coach, he grew up in Maine, and lived 3 doors down from Stephen King's house (when King was growing up, my old coach is like 80+ now). My friend's son was in class with King.

Also, my good friend's father grew up down the street from Martha Stewart. He said he remembers her mom was the only one on the block that always had cookies for everyone after school. He didn't know Martha very well, because he went to school with her sibling, who was much younger, but he saw her a lot (she just didn't converse with pesky little boys). ;)

Also, my extended studies teacher from elementary school went to school with Gene Wilder.

I've met a lot of famous people (tons of pro athletes, tons of sportscasters, actors, presidents, VPs, and other high end government officials), but I didn't go to school with any of them. Too young. :e2cry:

Do you realize how close we are to a generation of writers who's too young to have ever heard of Michael Jordan?

I met Michael Jordan when he was on the Dream Team in '96, tyvm. I know who he is. We were Olympians together. :D

And people will know who he is for awhile. He just won't be "that awesome basketball player," he'll be "that guy on the underwear commercial."

Theresa Davis. Perhaps the best blow job on Earth since time began. This was verified on more than one occasion. I would go back and live my life over again to experience it one more time.

Did he rave to you about the fact that he has my autograph?

Nah, I didn't think so. Trask Junior High, class of 76. My autograph wasn't worth as much back then as it is now.

My autograph has steadily decreased in value over the years. Fine by me. I got sick of signing posters.

Correction, he'll be that guy in the underwear commercial ... with Kevin Bacon, thus giving him only one degree of separation and maintaining his value for centuries to come.

If anybody turns out to be famous from my class, it will be me. I guess I better get off my butt and work on that before my 10 year reunion. ;)

On the other hand one of my buddies from high school is on her way to becoming a doctor and has done some amazing humanitarian stuff in India. I think that should count for something. I'm proud of her.

When someone does something bad enough to you, you remember it forever.

Like the girl who embarrassed me in front of my entire basketball team by announcing that I did not wear deoderant. I could care less where she is now or what she's doing, but that memory will stay with me forever. ;)

I'm sure more people from high school carry a grudge against me than I against them. I was a bitch. Well...was is debatable.

I did have a hatred for this one guy that humiliated me in jr. high. He was a bit of a dork, and he came up to me one day and asked if I'd go out with him. I kinda pitied the guy and said okay. He then laughed and said someone had dared him to ask me. And then there was much hatred between us.

A couple years ago I chanced across the guy (I'm currently 7 years out of high school). He had just returned from a tour in Iraq, and was close to batshit crazy from being forced to kill people. I'm back to pity.

Having returned from my 20th High School Reunion, in which I had a GREAT time, I can truly say that my class, the class of 1987 was a cream-of-the-crop generation.

I've got the CFO of a major casino network, a television news anchor, and an assistant dean at the University of Washington coming from my school -- a small school in Fresno, California. 90% of the people I talked to were in IT. The rest were career military, lawyers, or teachers.

about 12% of our class showed up -- a much larger group than I expected.

It was cool, visiting old haunts, comiserating about the ones that weren't there anymore, and realizing just how great a friendship you have when after 10-12 years you can just pick up a conversation that dropped off over a decade ago and keep talking like it was yesterday.


I was a freak in school. Major outcast. I wouldn't step foot in a reunion. I have heard nothing from any of my contemporaries. I like it that way.

I haven't graduated from College yet X-D And neither have most of my old classmates. I do know that one of the girls I went to school with in India is on the fast track to the top of the hotel management business (thanks to daddy, sigh).
Another applied to a fancy French music school but got rejected (after she had bragged about how talented she was [*cough*BS*cough*]) now, she leads a choir... a chuch choir in the middle of nowhere. MUHAHAHAHAH! Sorry but this chick left me with a lot of emotional scars.

Aside from that, there is no one apparently promising in my group(s). Maybe I can be the most succesful for a change. Nah. Too many of them came from rich or influential families. They'll make it to the top, they just might not deserve it.

None of those. You know it could have been spelled Teresa as well. There was much more to her than the spelling of her first name. Not only did she give a fantabulous blowjob but she was very attractive with ample bosum. *winky wink* Last I heard her last name was Stanton so maybe it isn't Davis anymore. She was caucasian if that helps. Thanks for looking.

Besides the Nobel Prize gonna-be:

My sister was in the same year as I (no, we're not twins), and her best friend is a successful opera singer, who has been in the papers.

Conversely, another good friend of mine has been in the papers not because of what she'd done (she's very smart), but because she has lupis; it attacked her spine, which left her paralysed. She's what doctors had called "a gold mine in medicine."

I don't know of anyone from my high school going on to do anything super fabulous. I graduated, I kept in touch with a few people for awhile, but mostly I left it - and them - behind. Hated high school. On the rare occasion I run into someone I went to school with, I pretend I don't see/know them. I shunned my ten year reunion, and I hope they can't find me for the fifteenth.

Hm, perhaps I should go to a fifteenth.

November 1975, I moved to Wilmington, North Carolina, and began attending Trask Junior High. Maybe the 30th or 40th school of my young life.

Homerooms were arranged alphabetically by last name, so I spent the first 10 minutes of every day in the same homeroom as Michael Jordan. (I'm Michael LaRocca.)

I was the shortest person in class. Before I showed up, Michael Jordan was the shortest person in class. Also the only black boy in class, and also the only classmate who wasn't an asshole. He was a good kid.

At the end of the school year, I moved to Florida. The school was torched AFTER I left.

Many years later, after watching a truly amazing player win a few championships with the Bulls, I heard that he graduated class of 81 (same as me), from Laney High School (next door to Trask), and I suddenly remembered all that.

I doubt MJ remembers me, though...

Two of my classmates went on to have long NFL careers--both of them playing on the same Superbowl-winning team. In fact, they just retired a few years ago, and I was c/o 86.

I think that's the extent of my class's bragging rights.

I went to school with a girl who went on to be in 'EastEnders' for a while and is now a mumsy TV presenter. We were in the hugely successful St Patrick's house play, 'Unhand me, Squire!' together.

Other than that, and my friend Lisa, who used to pass me notes during double geography, and is now a key big-shot at AC Neilsen, can't think of anyone who's become noteworthy.

I have never gone to a school reuinion, nor will I ever! The closest I came to it was when a gang of old friends came to see me in 'Little Shop of Horrors', and Debbie G's wedding. That was quite enough for me. *Shudder*.
