10th Reunion Anniversary!!!  
Y'all. We cannot help but notice the HSM Reunion special is on tonight. We even interrupted our usual ongoing text conversation about The Great British Baking Show and stretchy jeans to discuss all the press.

Pasta: We should probably tweet or something?
Pasta: I don't know. I'm so old.
M: Oh right. We have a Twitter.
M: I just checked our Twitter. We have one follower.

Our even more aged hearts crack open a little with nostalgia. They're still all in this together! Except for Zac.

(Are any of you still on LJ? Is this thing still on? Are we posting to the void? Does a post exist if you don't include a bunch of gifs? God, we are so old. We think maybe you're all on Tumblr now.)

(BTW... we do not believe the rumor that Zac declined to participate tonight because he demanded $500,000 and Disney refused to pony up. We believe that things are awkward with V since the break-up, and they probably agreed she gets to keep HSM in the divorce.)

(Also, we believe there's a group chat with everyone but Zac. Have you seen these reunion photos? They look crazy happy. We think they might actually be friends. Except for Zac because everyone chose V. Which we probably would not have predicted 10 years ago. Which goes to show you that we were dumb.)

So, in honor of our joy, please enjoy this Buzzfeed article featuring 49 Things You Didn't Know About HSM. We particularly like the story of Grabeel and the Tizz auditioning together. (Also, we've noticed mainstream media has adopted our nickname for Le Tisdale, but they're misspelling it with an 's'. To whom do we address our angry letter??)

Hope y'all are well. Happy Anniversary!

Dug up my old password and logged back into this account for the first time in forever just to see if there was possibly an AM post about the reunion. I miss this community and I hope everyone is having fun watching the reunion and reminiscing about how cheesy everything was! These clips and videos of V, Tizz, Lu, Mo, and Boy Wonder all together have made my little heart so happy. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat.

P.S. Fuck Zac.
...just kidding. kinda.

This comment bring us so much joy. Thank you for showing up with us tonight. We really do miss our crazy little community.

Especially tonight when we want everyone to cackle over Vanessa's face when they made her watch a video of her audition with Zac. We would totally embed a screenshot of it here... but we do not remember how to do that and we're too old to google how. Just assume her face was incredible and everything we wanted it to be.

What I just wrote to M about this:

that was an amazing comment. We did make a difference, M! *single tear*

like_whoa_124, thank you for keeping the AM flame alive!

the last 15 minutes of my life:

- read recap post about the reunion on mashable
- fall for the cast all over again and get all caught up in my feelings while watching the video snippets
- mind drifts to memories of AM and how it was absolutely my #1 fave thing to come out of the hsm fandom
- google 'agingmouseketeer' to find that there's a blogspot and a tumblr in the listings higher than the lj
- click them both and discover that they're clearly imposters
- click the link to lj with the goal of falling further into my feels by reading some past posts, not expecting anything new
- read post and continue to live for your spot on commentary

this is the first time i've commented or posted on lj in over 3 years. can't think of a better reason to.

i seriously cannot believe it's been 10 years. thank you for creating this community and giving older-ish disney fans a place to obsess about these crazy kids and crazy movies.

hope you're both well, too!

Okay, so I looked and yes.... I think there's an unintentional imposter. I don't think she's pretending to be us, but she is kind of using our name.

But we DO actually have a tumblr. It's basically inactive, but every so often we get a wild urge to post a gif... it's http://agingmousketeer.tumblr.com/

I think at some point, we decided we wanted to co-host a blog again but didn't want the responsibility of writing epic posts, so we started the tumblr with good intentions. And then got distracted by, like, taxes. But if you're on tumblr, feel free to follow and stay tuned.

And thanks for your kind words!! We kind of went down the AM rabbit hole last night, too. So many, many good times here. Thank you for joining in on the fun and valuing us enough to come back.

what uppppp

unintentional or not, i'm silently judging her.

now following you on tumblr. can't believe i wasn't already. i am one of the ones who participated in The Great LJ to Tumblr Migration. although i don't even get to check my dash anymore like i want to because #old.

that rabbit hole is massive and i can feel myself staying in it for awhile. also i wish they'd asked more of the cast to be there for the reunion.

dreamon_dreamer, this comment made ME verklempt, Linda-Richman style. I've missed this community too! So glad M's little post lured so many of you back for one last hurrah!

For the record, this is the post that made me laugh most on this site. http://agingmousketeer.livejournal.com/60277.html

that poll was epic and so spot on! i still skip 'when there was me and you' and always will

Okay, so we just impulsively decided to blog again. We're going for it on the tumblr and our similarly named twitter. Come join us. We're not totally sure how to have conversations on Tumblr, but maybe send us an ask? And we realized we can't follow ypu back on Tumblr because it's a community and so we'd have to follow you from our personal accounts... which are actually too close to our real names for comfort. So, just know that we follow you in our hearts. But we will 100% follow you on Twitter. Oh god. Social media is giving me a headache already.
