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: May 24-25

The Monday after prom was traditionally Senior Ditch Day; you can probably guess what that means. Brandon, Suzanne, Jill and I (and maybe a couple other people? I don't remember) decided to spend the day down in Lakeview, including a picnic in Graceland Cemetery. Unfortunately for us, it turns out the cemetery doesn't allow picnics, so we were interrupted about halfway through eating. No matter, we were also there to do a mini photo fieldtrip, so we just moved on to that portion of our plans.

My list of stuff to bring included "peperoni" sticks -- beef snack sausages from the Gilmer Road Smokehouse (long gone now, sadly) -- and muffins from the Sarah Lee outlet. You could get a dozen huge muffins for $6, which was an awesome deal for perennially broke high school students.

The quote from Ms. Cullen, the AP art teacher, about Christian was a bit out of line. Everyone thought she was a bitch, though, so at least it was in character.

Ah, the things you come up with hanging out in coffeeshops. Our list of summer book ideas didn't amount to much, but The Raven made it halfway to production as a literary zine. We mostly talked about what it would look like and didn't get very far on the actual creation of content. "Mail Order Deity" was a title Brandon used for a couple projects in the years after.
