SAAS Stuff

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 16 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Tuesday was SAAS Graduation. The last one I’ll go to for now. There are two reasons this will be my last one. First, I don’t know anyone else graduating. This was the last class that I shared a link to. Second, I have this “thing” left over from high school. I don’t know why, but I do. The easiest way to explain it is to just say that I have some desire to rehash my high school life. I feel like I missed out on a lot of things and I left to early (which I didn’t. I did my four years and I was out just like that).

If you’ve ever read “Just a Geek”, by Wil Wheaton, he talks about this ghost called “Prove to Everyone that Quitting Star Trek Wasn’t a Mistake” which he shortens to “Prove to Everyone”.

Always close, but never quite getting that one acting job that would revitalize his career, he struggled to come to terms with what it means to be famous, or, ironically, famous for having been famous.

P.S. If Rob Phillips ever reads this, I’ll never hear the end of it…one might call it an inside joke from Canyon Lands.

I digress.

I was able to see Gillian Derkee, Mira Courage, Adrian Harris (who is freaking huge by the way! 6′ 5″ eghad!). Mission Accomplished. Done and Done.

Thursday was the SAAS Alumni at the BluWater Bistro on Lake Union. Good times for sure. Alec Turnbull, Daniel Bushyhead, Morgan Harris, Devin Fitzpatrick, Celeste Jalbert, Nora Johnson, Peter Markle, and myself represented ’04 (I don’t think I missed anyone from our class). I tried to get Jeff Hanway to come, but he’s insistent on waiting five years, which means two more years before he’ll come. A handful of teachers came: Bill, Canuche, Melinda, and Fred to name a few that I can remember without thinking too hard at two in the morning.
