09:50 am - A case of nostalgia
So this customer has the last name "Case". I've been processing the same 100W since 2 PM yesterday (it's a bit complicated), and I've worked on this "Case" person several times: written the name, looked up the name, read the name, checked information about the name. . . All stuff I have to do in order to properly process the payment.

But for some reason, it's distracting. I can't get a girl out of my mind, one I knew a long time ago (almost a decade now). This customer, "Case," is why I can't forget her today, and why I am having trouble processing the tickets associated with the name, and why I'm writing this entry now (so that hopefully, I can get moving again on the actual work).

I met the girl at a fencing meet at Notre Dame my freshman year. She was from Case Western Reserve University (you see now the connection), and she was just an amazing girl.

I try and keep in touch with her, but it's hard for me. She's in Denver now, or was last I heard. I have a couple of letters from her and occasionally wonder if she has a couple of letters from me.

I kinda miss talking to her.

I wonder if my most recent address for her is still any good?

Funny, about six years ago I knew a girl that left a very similar impression on me, she worked in one of the offices at the Union, I would constantly get crap from the other guys in the shop for spending my (and her) lunch break up there or we'd walk around campus.

She's in Denver now as well (last I heard). Roadtrip? :)

hells yeah :) It'd be nice to reconnect.

I wonder if we can find an academic conference out there to go to?

Let's wait until spring, though, okay?

Not when "I'm stranded in an airport in Paris" was counted as an extra "vacation day". . . I need all those days I can get :)

Try it. Letters are wonderful things, especially letters from people we used to know.

If you have her name and (ideally) last state of residence, I have ways to find people - comes from tracking down owners of vacant houses :)
