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.

January 8-9

This is one long story of the craziness the night a bunch of us theater folk went down to the Illinois High School Festival, which was held that night at ISU in Bloomington-Normal. We stayed at a La Quinta Inn somewhere on the edge of town, and we knew there would be minimal supervision -- the chaperones would of course go to bed long before we would -- there was plenty of booze brought down for the occasion. These very dense pages describe the insanity that ensued. I don't think I have much to add to it.

If I get enough requests, I'll transcribe the whole thing; I know it's a bit hard to read. This would be one of those cases where it's probably easiest to view it large on flickr.

This was the second time I ever got drunk. Before this, it was on my friend Dave's 16th birthday. That was a weird night. I'll tell that story some other time.
