Something amazing just happened!
I got an email from my old flatmate in college about an Australian Maritime College reunion. "Dude" and I were good friends in college and I haven't spoken to him since (or nearly anybody else from that time). About 10 of them are getting together for a tour of the college and then drinks and a dinner.
I'm quite upset I can't go. But maybe I'm even more excited to hear that lots of them are still in contact and doing things together. It will be a lot of fun to meet up with them again when we go back.
My efforts to make myself findable on the internet have taken "David Rolph" from unfindable to page 4 in google search. I still have lots of ideas for how to get a much better rating and must just get around to doing them. Dude found me by finding my more famous brother Michael :-( But not for long, at 41 I still have many years to eclipse him.
Anyway, I love it when things like that happen out of the blue. Would be even better if I could go.
