One of my friends from college lives in the town where we're having this conference, and tonight he took me out to dinner. We went to a really good Szechuan place (my dish was 50% dried red chiles and they used real Szechuan peppercorns -- it was amazing).

It's been almost ten years since we've seen each other, and we don't have much in common any more, so our conversation kind of involved getting to know each other all over again. In these cases your shared history makes it only slightly easier than going through the process with a total stranger.
