Today was the first Meares trip of the season. That means the trip is 9 and a half hours instead of 6 and a half. It went well. No whales, but saw some porpoise.

One of the girls I work with used some of her free passes today and had her boyfriend, a couple of his friends, and her brother on the trip. Her brother is someone I graduated with. While it was nice to see him again (after 6 years) I always feel uneasy when I see someone I knew in high school and haven't seen since. It's like I have a vague feeling that they're saying, "Oh, hi Nelli!" and then as soon as I leave they turn to their friends and say, "DAMN, she's put on some weight!" or something like that. I also know that most of the people I graduated with couldn't care less about me, so that makes that vague feeling all the more asinine, but I can't help it.

I am crew chiefing tomorrow on the short trip with two brothers who look so much alike I can't tell them apart. I worked with one today, and one was the newbie I worked with yesterday.
