Katie, need some help here

The sentance:
Don't even remember I was there.

Syntax:
Since memory is something in the present, "don't" seems correct.
It sounds strange.
Saying, Didn't even remember I was there would indicate I currently do remember, which is not the case.

Your thoughts?

(I know this is addressed to Katie, but if any of you other 'wanna bees' have an opinion, I will read them, but probably only believe Katie. Of course, you could wait until she responds, then agree, but that won't earn you any points.)

You're right, Uncle K. "Don't" is correct, because you don't currently remember.

P.S. Flattery will get you everwhere.

Katie is a show off.....

And I suspect I violated some sort of rule with that sentence.

I have one to ask Katie, too, but I can't remember it right now. Dang it.
