And so there was email yesterday from an uncle who is attempting to organize a family reunion sometime next year or in 2009. I have never been to a family reunion, in the traditional sense anyway, and the notion sounds interesting to me. It was originally proposed to be in California. But already, there seems to be a branch of the family demanding it be held in Las Vegas. Black sheep, all of them. (And by “them”, I also mean me.) The details are pretty sketchy at this point, more information gathering than anything else, but it sounds like it could be interesting.

One question: what is it exactly that people do at family reunions? Are there formalities to attend to? Are speeches given? Are family trees planted and watered? I honestly don’t know.
