He just dropped in unannounced -- I had just gotten out of the shower when Jon yelled upstairs that I had a visitor, and it turned out to be him! We gave him a tour of the studio, which is in disarray since Amanda's in the process of painting it turquoise blue, but he was still suitably impressed. (Heh.) We filled each other in on our lives since graduation: he's living in Ashland, working for Musician's Friend, and now applying to grad schools. Also, he's dating Dan Aykroyd's niece. And we went out for Indian food, and we almost lost his car, and we talked about bands and relationships and school and jobs and roommates and the stuff that makes up our lives. It was really fun.
I like having the kind of friends who'll randomly drop in after a year and a half. And it's good to know that I can still have chance encounters with Grinnell friends, even though they're a lot less concentrated here than they were in Chicago. It makes it all the more special.
