More Diary Fun

Nothing new to report (well, except to grumble that the Penguins lost the first game of Round 1—grrr). That tends to happen when I’m busy writing, or in my case re-writing. Whatever it’s called, it’s working and I’m a happy camper (except where the Penguins are concerned—grrr). But… that doesn’t help my blog any. So, here’s some more diary fun (I love that I have this to fall back on).

Wednesday, December 12, 1973

Well, long time no write! Who’s ever reading this must be terribly bored (especially with all the misspellings). Some time I would love to right pages of stuff like on “The Waltons.” For you young people-It’s a television show which is my favorite right now (along with a lot of other shows). Today was a minimum day and I saw Rick (which I didn’t think would happen). He came into the band room to see the time (which he could have done outside. Maybe he wanted to see me. FAT CHANCE!). I will not have a diary after this maybe a book. P.S. I love you Rick!

Some comments:

1) I was 16 when I wrote this.

2) The “long time no write” remark was made because the last time I had written in that diary was October 28. In fact, this diary has a LOT of blank pages!

3) I like how I mentioned the misspellings and then misspelled “write” after I had spelled it correctly earlier!

4) My memory is faulty and I don’t remember what minimum days were (either shortened classes or some classes were eliminated), BUT… I do remember Rick coming into the band room (because I had a HUGE crush on that guy, as you can tell from the P.S.).

5) I think it’s funny that I wrote I will have a book next, when I couldn’t even write in the small yellow diary every day. But I did use spiral notebooks starting in 1974, and I was able to write more, just not more often (I still had problems with that).

Maybe next time I’ll post one of those longer ones. I’ll have to find one that’s interesting.

So… Starting Saturday I’ll be hosting the Sizzle and Sass Facebook page. My week always seems to catch me off guard. What catches you off guard? The weekend? Monday? Hmmm…

Have a great day!

Family gatherings and birthdays always catch me off guard. Then I have to scramble to buy gifts, clean house, etc.! Your diary entries are funny, thanks for sharing!

Jennette - Yeah, birthdays do that to me, too. Glad you're enjoying my teenage years! I am, too! :)

I never kept a diary. But I occasionally stumble across old writing. What a stagger down memory lane.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Michael - Stagger? Yeah, I guess it is a stagger...from laughing. :)

I wonder whatever happened to Rick. :)

Maria - I wrote him after he graduated (he was a year ahead of me) and after I joined the Army (I was brave when I didn't face the risk of running into him) and he never wrote back! But I did find him on Facebook (still looks pretty good, even with that tiny picture). Not that I asked him to friend me or anything. That would have been WEIRD. And I may be weird, but I'm not THAT weird. :)

I love it. It's so funny and still sounds like you. The best.
