Circles.

About three and a half years ago, I lost my Antioch class ring.

Today a random person on Facebook emailed to tell me that she found it, and has had it all this time.

She found me because we have two friends in common. One -- Amy -- is an old friend of mine from Youth Cry. The other -- Sara -- is actually someone that I don't know, but we have caelidh as a friend in common, so I suspect that's how we became Facebook friends.

So seriously guys: how weird is that?

Weirder still: That class ring was the momentous thing that I lost immediately before meeting unixd0rk. So you tell me: what sort of a sign is it that it was found again immediately before I'm supposed to meet Mr. Out Of My League? (Who, incidentally, could probably use a better nickname ...)

Why did she keep it all this time?

If it's a sign, it's saying Don't Make the Same Mistakes Twice.

She asked the two people she knew who had the same last name as me (my name is written inside the ring) if they knew who I was but they didn't, and her search just kind of ended there. I put up some signs in Squirrel Hill but obviously she missed them.

Google? Antioch alum assoc? Phone book?

Seems odd she didn't bother to find you.

Thanks. It was my all-time favorite picture taken of me when I was at Antioch. I'm hanging a photo show (hence the party dress and the hammer). It, too, was lost for many years -- I loaned it to zannavery for the yearbook with the promise that it would be returned. It was not. This past June, sixteen years later, it was discovered in a box of pictures (all from the yearbook) by the photo professor, who gave the whole box to the ever-dilligent nicolabaltimore, who scanned every freakin picture and put them all up on Facebook.

Which is more than you ever wanted to know about that photograph but hey -- it seemed a fitting story to share.

Youth Cry?
That goes *waaaaaaay* back. I might have seen you back then, but didn't know who you were.

I went to a couple city-wide meetings; I had Brooke Smokelin of Baldwin help me start up a chapter at Bethel. Don't know whether it was functioning after I graduated, but we had 5-8 members, one of whom I met up with in DC last year for much drinking.

Re: Youth Cry?
I remember Brooke Smokelin distinctly. I think we were both on the committee that made all the fliers and leaflets. I'm pretty sure I have her email address lying around somewhere, if you require it. :)
