1. How many of your high school reunions have you gone to?

I went to my 10th and my 20th. The 25th is this summer but I am not going as I speak to most of the people on facebook on a regular basis that would be there and see many of them, as they are good friends. It also it too much money, IMO, same as last time, $120/per person and my dh went with me last time and the food was just ok and the "open" bar was only open a few hours and had a very limited selection. 

2. One thing that annoyed you this week?

My co-worker who thinks I should be her therapist. Anyone else I wouldn't have a problem with but this is an ongoing, every few months problem that I am tired of dealing with. 

3. One thing you are doing this weekend? 

Going shopping to get my ds some dress pants for graduation.

Just one.  We've only had 2 - at 10 and 30 years.  I didn't want to go to the 10-year one, but regretted it later.  By the time we finally had the 30-year one, I wanted to go so much that I helped plan it.  

2. One thing that annoyed you this week?

Being so tired from last weekend.  

3. One thing you are doing this weekend? 

Staying put and resting up from the last one.

0, My class is a weird one, Lol, The last reunion got cancelled b/c there weren't enough of us that rsvp'd so a few planned for a last minute local bar and grill thing.  Customer service, getting transferred 3 different times for nothing.  The pool if it doesn't rain.

Wow, that sounds like some reunion Molly! Our 30th was a couple years ago and the cost was only 25.00 or 30.00/some of which was a donation back to the high school. I don't know if anybody got a refund that paid but the hall was the school, I doubt there would have been an open bar, it was a catholic girls school you know, Lol.

I stay in touch with a handful on facebook.

This year our Friday night event is $5/person non-alcoholic beverages provided, BYOB and BYO(snack).   Saturday brunch is $10/person, all food/beverage provided (families, teachers, parents, etc all invited to the Saturday brunch.)  Then there is a town-wide banquet Sat night at $20/person.

Aww....I graduated with 1,600 kids but the last time only about 300 came which I thought was pretty low. Again, many people find it is expensive and many have to travel so it would cost them a lot more than just the per person cost.

Yes we have it at a local hotel. It is like going to a wedding but it is a buffet that was just o.kay and an open bar that was pretty lame IMO.

That sounds like the celebration my friend attended for her sorority's 100th year!  All three days of that weekend was something different, dinner one night was 1000./plate.  Yes, You read that right.
