Re: Memoirs

Completely by accident, I stumbled upon the VHS tape that I referenced in this previous post. It had apparently not been lost after all. I had an urge to take a nostalgia trip with my old Gameboy games, and while looking for them, I discovered the tape buried in a corner in the cabinet under my bookcase, on the bottom shelf beneath the Seinfeld DVDs and next to the old NES games. And there was much rejoicing.

Now, if I can just convince the Smithsonian Institute to grant me access to their VHS player, which I assume to be the last surviving one in existence, there might yet be a chance to view this old treasure. I should really get it converted to a digital format. There are still places that do that, right?

Anyway, it's good to know it wasn't completely lost. There might still be hope for a high school reunion viewing.

I have something different for you today. I've been working on some memoir-like things and thought I'd give you a preview. This is a first draft, so the final product may look a little different. Also, this is a rather long piece of prose by my standards, so if you don't have ten minutes to kill, you might just want to skip this, or else bookmark it for later.
