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 4-5

Oh yes, Miss Teen Illinois went to our school. She was one of the Marias in West Side Story, and had such a ridiculous Latina accent that to this day, I still can't pass Keeler Avenue without giggling.

Anyway, we had a special "day" in her honor, which primarily consisted of an announcement over the PA system in the morning.

The sandwich shop I worked at in high school, Boloney's, had a number of entertainingly named sandwiches. I had all of them while I worked there. My favorite was one I made up: the "Wich Came First," which contained egg salad and turkey salad (which was served instead of chicken salad; turkey breast is generally cheaper for food service companies) with lettuce and ranch dressing on a pita. Tasty stuff, although I think I eventually switched to yellow mustard. The ranch plus all that mayo in the salads was just overkill.

I did a lot of hand tracing in 1954 -- both my own and others'. It was nice organic shape, readily at hand (heh), and fun to play with.

On this day, I made up a joke.
Q: What did Patrick Henry say when he walked into the whorehouse?
A Give me Libby or give me Beth.

Not enough smutty historical jokes being made these days.

There are a lot of references to both Joey Buttafuoco and Larry "Budd" Melman in April and May. They're almost all by a guy named Justin. I don't really know why, but he was thoroughly amused by them.

The weird black shapes on this page was drawn to mirror the one on the other page -- which hides some writing. I don't know what's under there, but I seem to recall it being offensive, not sensitive.

I don't think I ever heard any Peace Love & Pitbulls, despite Christian's recommendation, but according to their Wikipedia page, they influenced Marilyn Manson. In some circles, that's high praise.
