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: June 21-22

"Meet Jamaica." Punnerific.

Most of the doodles here are by Mike; I think I drew the person roasting on the beach, though. The "Expose yourself to poultry" line arose from a conversation about food safety; naturally we saw the innuendo.

Mike and I watched Easy Rider at John B.'s house, with John and Mark M. It was a collision of two friend pools, and was a little awkward; John and Mark were sort of "frienemies" of mine. I'm not really sure how it came to be that Mike and I ended up there, but that sort of thing happened a lot that summer -- random groups of graduated seniors hanging out with each other.

It's true, I heart stream of conscious. It's a great creativity exercise. Ever try it? Just get out a piece of paper and write down a word or phrase, then whatever pops into your head next, and next, and so on, following whatever leaps of association your mind makes. Once you get going it won't take long to fill the entire page.

Secret writing:

I broke up with Nikki tonight. God it was hard. I then talked to Brooke R. afterwards. It was good to talk to her.

Looking back, I should have done this a lot sooner. Nikki and I were poorly matched, and it's clear in retrospect that it wasn't working for me.
