"Is anyone on a training program? Colleen was on an olive program. I was on an eye shadow wearing program. We all need to be improving ourselves! I love programs."

Tonight was the Annual Reunion of the 6018 Compton St roommates-- Emel and Colleen-- at our official place: Arni's. Lucky for us, tonight just happened to be Colleen's birthday too! That meant we all got salads, everyone went for the 10" pizza and we finished off the night with the Ultimate Cookie Freak Out. It was a party. 

Emel and Colleen were supporters of my friendship bracelet addiction and the "drawer of magic" from the start. It was only fitting that they both got a new friendship bracelet tonight. Hands down, these are two of the most positive, fun, silly and whimsical people I've ever met. Living with them for two years was such a gift. We decided that these annual reunions must become bi-annual at least.
