About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: February 21-22

Ah, parent preview. A high school tradition -- give the parents a sneak peek at the show, and give the cast an opportunity to run through with a live -- and forgiving -- audience.

You might think that I was nervous about the preview, but you'd be wrong. Actually, it has to do with the note in the middle of the page. My friend Katrina (yes, the one I went on what I thought was a date with) had a crush on our mutual friend Kevin, who was one of the other leads in West Side Story, and I was interested in one of the dancers in the show, Anne H., who Katrina knew a little bit. We concocted a plan to ask both of them out on dates at the same time. We did it in the cafeteria, I think after school, before the parent preview. Kevin said yes, Anne said... maybe. And then later, no. Which is probably for the best -- I didn't know much about her, and she was so shy, I never did get to know her very well. And I quickly moved on to other crushes.

I'm not sure who wrote the bit that's scratched out. It says "SEX IS EVIL... EVIL" -- I think whoever wrote the short verse on Monday ("sex is evil... evil is sin/sins are forgiven so sex is in.") started writing it on Sunday and realized there wasn't room.

Sexual Innuendo Day! Lots of "that's what he/she said" type moments. That last one -- "You came with your pants open!" -- is a line from West Side Story.
