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: October 7-8

Poor Steve. Couldn't tell a joke.

Steve was one of my closer friends from the dorm. He was a music major -- I want to say he played guitar. And Jenny was a girl from one of the other floors who Steve sort of liked and I thought was pretty cool. She claimed to be a wiccan -- a good witch, she'd say to people who were confused -- and had a calm demeanor and worldly attitude, despite never being further from home than she was at school.

I had an early morning shift in the cafeteria so I decided to stay up all night, and Steve and Jenny decided to join me. We hung out on the floor in my room and talked, played the question game and teased Steve about his (mostly nonexistent) love life, while a rotating cast of characters joined in.

At one point, Steve was whining that he didn't know when it was alright to kiss a girl, and I told him if he wasn't sure, he should ask. He was incredulous, so I asked Jenny if I could kiss her, she said "Sure," and we kissed. Steve was floored.

A some point Sin probably came in and went to bed, even as we continued on. Sin was somehow able to sleep through basically anything. He didn't care if the lights were on or if people were in the room. He'd just climb onto his bunk (he was on the top bunk) and almost instantly fall asleep. Usually with his eyes slightly open. It was a little creepy.

I made my first, I think, visit to my Uncle Tom's house tonight, to do laundry and hang out. He and his wife, Katrina (they weren't actually married, but were commonlaw) had an au pere to help take care of their son, Topher, who was both hyperactive and had a skin condition sort of like psoriasis. Katrina was a physician and Tom was nocturnal, so having an au pere to help with Topher was a must for them.

Somehow, despite being up overnight and only really eating breakfast, I managed to be up until 1:30am.
