So some of you know, but probably most of you don't ... aaronbenedict and I will be seeing each other, for the first time in 26 years, this coming Tuesday.

He has a work thing in DC for a few days and I'm going with him. We'll be staying in Virginia.

The really ironic part is that we went to DC and Virginia when we were kids.

Our camp group did a whole trip there -- we went to the Smithsonian (I definitely remember that first trip to the Air & Space Museum), we went to the FBI (this I don't remember, but I made mention of it in a childhood journal), and we went to an amusement park in Virginia where I bought a hat that said "Virginia is for Lovers," and we got our picture taken by everyone's favorite camp counselor, Tommy.

At the end of camp, Tommy and the counselors handed out awards. aaronbenedict and I got the "Virginia is for Lovers" award, with that picture of us taped to a big sheet of paper.

I can't find that picture (a fact which drives me crazy), but it definitely blows my mind that we're about to reunite in Virginia of all places. No, we didn't plan it that way.

I'm sure I'll be bouncing off the walls tomorrow, but for right now I just wanted to say SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!
