happy birthday, dee

i first met dee in the 7th grade “math counts” competition – she was on maui waiena’s team and i was a proud kalama panther. i guess you could call her my arch rival, my nemesis. math was generally more of a “boy thing,” but dee and i both loved it enough to make it an extra-curricular activity. yes, we were dorks. (i guess some things never change – thank goodness my hair did though!)

kalama intermediate took first place in the 1993 math counts! go panthers! haha

a few years later, we both found ourselves at maui high school, suddenly in the same classes, rather than in competition. and we’ve been friends ever since.

it was so nice getting to spend time with dee in boston, to see her in her element, and to catch up. then to have her come to meet me in new york for her birthday was even better! we took a bike tour of central park, met kim to browse at the 3rd avenue street fair, did the sex and the city tour, and then went out for a night on the town that had so many funny, random events in it that the next day i was wondering if i’d made it up.

happy birthday, dee. wishing you all the best for the coming year… i vote we celebrate all our birthdays in new york city! =)
